Also I noticed that this example is shot wide open - generally you'll need to stop down to f/8 with this combo to get better results.

What is the point of buying f2.8 lenses if you cannot get any decent quality unless you stop them down to something you could also get with a lens that's 1/5th the price?

Ugh . . . let's not degrade the thread with comments such as this.  The OP has good question, let's help him not turn him away.
