infinity is always a very hard sharpness test, esp when you get out past a mile, like this.

My focus probably could have been better, but the main issue is the corners. Dead center it's totally fine. But the corners never really do come in--for me anyway.

Hence it is not a great landscape lens

But for people or any shot with the eye in the center, it's pretty good---when you combine the performance with the super light weight and small size---well

I don't know of ANY 50 under 140 grams which is better.
