Re: 16-85 lacks sharpness

Good copies of this lens are sharp! Mine is. But it seems to be quite a bit of sample variation, and there may also be mechanical problems: I have had the VR unit repaired after only 2-3 months of use. You must shoot at high shutter speeds, or on a tripod, and low ISO to be able to judge sharpness, and you must post 100% crops.
