How sharp is the Fuji 35mm F2? 100% crop

This is a ridiculously short post but I just thought I’d chuck it out there for anyone who might want to see. I shot the below image on the weekend, wide open on the Fuji 35mm F2. The fact that is was shot at F2 was totally a mistake but after minimal processing in Lightroom, you can see how much clarity and detail this amazing little lens can resolve.

Click on the featured image above to see it full size for a 100% crop. The detail in the grass and rocks is superb. The only editing I did was to apply my preset from this post with the sharpening settings as above and a little edge detail brushed on.

I find that the X-trans sensor benefits from lots of detail being added. The settings above are built in to my presets with minor adjustments applied on a photo by photo basis. Bearing in mind that these shots are taken on a two year old 16mp X-E2, I am in awe at the detail that the little 35mm can muster up. This lens just gets better and better.
