I can only agree with the 45mm results
In reply to amalric, Apr 5, 2013

I've bought this lens as a replacement of my old ZD50mm. I know everybody here praise this lens  and it's indeed sharp at 2.5 and beyond. But I've always used my 50mm wide open with tack sharp results. So I did the same thing with the 45mm, wide open all the way and I felt there was, well, something wrong with the results. It's not a big drama but it's clearly not as sharp wide open. I can live with it, I stop it down and everything is fine (not mentioning that AF is really really fast!) but new owners should be aware about it.
