The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Fujifilm WCL-X100 lens was attached to a Fujifilm X100, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. The self-timer was activated to avoid camera-shake. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.

Sharpness is poor wide open at f/2, much improved at f/2.8, and excellent between f/4 and f/11. At f/16, sharpness is still high, although lens contrast is slightly lower than at the other settings.
