... or frame wide sharpness at F5.6 on a flat subject.

I received my SB today, and tried a few lenses. The prelim test was all indoors, in limited light but I think it does a good job beyond the center as well, at least through the thirds. Mine is A-mount, and lenses I tried: Minolta 35-70/4 (this lens looks very good on SB, as a 25-50/2.8), Minolta 70-210/4, Minolta 50/1.7 (and it looks very good too, as a 35/1.2 lens) although I didn't see much difference in t-stop compared to E 35 (may be a different story in good light). And, of course, the STF.

I will try to post a few samples over the weekend.
