Damn you crappy 16mm! Why do you have to be so sharp?

OK so I was eating again! Man's gotta eat. Just a quick one of the namesake dip at the Artichoke Cafe on Riverside Blvd. I opened it in LR4 and ran the Sony 16mm profile on it, where it tweaks the geometry very slightly and I gave it an ooch of Sharpening and darn it's snappy. Just stopping down to f4 really helps this lens and for a handheld at 1/60 I'm surprised it's that sharp. Now if it only focussed about 6" closer.

100% for your pixel peeping perversity here...
