Re: Is this lens Sharp Enough

Dollar for dollar I don't think anyone can beat Samyang for quality, PERIOD!

When I clicked on that image and looked at it at the larger (full?) size, it looked incredibly sharp. Could the color/contrast/shading, etc. have been better? Perhaps. It was "a snapshot." But as for the sharpness, I doubt you'd be able to tell the difference between that at a DA*50-135, etc. -- at least not until/unless the shots were pushed to their maximum pixel limit.

I think if Samyang was a bit more aggressive (and offered lenses in AF) it would really give Sigma and Tamron (as well as the OEM lens makers) some serious competition!
