Sharpness for F 50mm 1.7
Nov 26, 2012


I have been trying to get my F 50mm 1.7 to be on a sharpness sweet spot.

I even opened it and tried to calibrate the focus (by disconnecting the focus ring from the focusing mechanism and adjusting), but i'm still having a problem with frontfocus.

Now i'm using -6 adjustment, and i've been getting some inconsistent results (that's making me very angry!)

Here are some 100% crops without any sharpening or any processing whatsoever, straight from raw. Taken at f2 with shake reduction OFF.

From your experience, do you think that is how sharp it normally is?

Thank you
