What to expect from a 60mm f/2.8G macro?
Mar 9, 2013

I am frustrated. I had heard all around that this lens is "extremely" sharp.

Is this what's called "extremely sharp"?

These are shot at f/10 with manual focus and a tripod with remote. I was at the distance of around 5-6 inches.

I was hoping to see the "texture" of the petal in focus. Enlarge it and see if you feel it has been shot with a macro of Rs. 30000?

What point am I missing?
