Sharpness at 18mm
The sharpness tests for this review were carried out with the Nikon 1 Nikkor 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 AW lens attached to a Nikon 1 AW1 camera body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. The self-timer was activated to avoid any blurring from depressing the shutter release. Tonal and colour variances across the crops are due to changes in natural light during the session. The 100% crops represent about 1/350th of the total frame area.
The full frame at 18mm
At the 18mm setting, sharpness uniformity is more consistent across the frame than at 11mm. The best aperture settings are f/4.5 and f/5.6, with f/8 being entirely usable too.
