Re: No offense but not terribly impressed...

Actually, the picture was sharpened slightly in the conversion from NEF in Lightroom...you know, this discussion adds credence to the theory that I've heard about this lens...namely, the first ones, produced in Japan(this one was one of the first ones), seem to have a slightly higher quality "build", as well as some very small IQ advantages...on the other hand, it just could be chalked up to sample variances. I would imagine that any lens produced in this quantity, in at least two different plants, would suffer from at least average, if not worse, manufacturing deviances.

Thanks for all the comments...
