I missed the link to Flickr and checked the originals. There are a couple at 55mm one at f4.5 and one at f5 which seem to be acceptably sharp to my eyes. The latest Aussie review tests seem to give better results than the photography blog one, so looking good again. If I go this route I'll be mainly wanting to shoot with fast primes in this range but at U$400 in the kit this lens might just fill the niche for social occasions where lens changing is a drag (on others). Once again, thanks for posting.
