No good "test" shot yet? It's not hyped...

I looked through the thread and none of these shots prove anything. Using live view handheld wide open with this lens? The DOF is way too shallow for that to work. CAF is needed hand held with this lens IMOH. Then you post an example from another lens at f8, what lens isn't good at f8? Last I saw a cat shot at 1/20th as an example of softness, I'd be shocked if it wasn't!

As far as lens being hyped, it's not. I've never used it for a portrait that didn't look fantastic. This lens is a reason to buy into the nikon system. This was ooc jpeg I shot of a friend yesterday in fairly low light.
