Well said. Fully agree.

The problem with the f1.8 lens or the f1.4 lens for that matter is that it is very easy to blow the focus, been there done that, have the T shirt to prove it. I will include a photograph I like. Basically I blew the focus while shooting thus creating a seemingly poor focused image, but the image does have "critical" just in the wrong area.

Many new to a lens like the Canon 50 f1.8, f1.4 and f1.2 don't always "get" how critical and difficult it can be to nail a good sharp image where they wanted that sharpness to be. And their conclusion, the lens isn't sharp!
