I would have thought it would have tested better. Mine makes a very good impression on me, based on real-world, day to day photography.

I was surprised too!

But then I thought that the reason I think the 50 is so great is because it's sharp across the frame. so you basically can see no difference in sharpness between the center and the borders and that of course gives you the impression that it's maxing out the sensor.

overall I'm still impressed by the 50 because it has OSS. small, light, wide aperture, great bokeh, nice resolution, cheap AND with OSS! I don't think you can beat this.

the only 2 very minor things I don't like about the 50 are its color (black would be much better) and its focal length (55 or 60 would have been better. 50x1.5 is not a standard fl, and a little short for face portraits - and even though you can indeed crop, cropping implies you have less oof ability)
