16-35 sharpness
Sep 7, 2011

Hi,

I've read a lot of articles that praise 16-35 sharpness, saw a lot of MTF comparisons and have ordered the lens. However, I'm a bit disappointed with its sharpness. I mean, stopped down to f8, it is significantly softer than 50/1.4, stopped down to f4.

Can you suggest a way to assess sharpness of the lens? I mean, maybe you can suggest some reference picture, that can be printed on A4 and shot on the full frame so we can make a comparison of several 16-35 samples online?

Thanks.
