Tokina Opera 16-28mm F2.8 FF Sharpness at 24mm

For this test, the Tokina Opera 16-28mm F2.8 FF lens was attached to a Canon EOS 5DS R body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Exposure delay mode was activated. Tonal and colour variances across the crops are due to changes in natural light during the session.

Centre sharpness remains high through from f/4 to f/11, with f/16 and f/22 being adversely affected by diffraction. The edges aren't quite as sharp as the centre, with f/5.6-f/11 producing the sharpest results.
