Re: Fine Tuning D700 24-85 3.5 lens

Hello Larry,

I am viewing at 100%. I do know that all lenses will be sharper 2-3 stops down from open but why I am asking is the images that were sent to me by the guy that sold this lens were absolutely pin sharp wide open at 24mm. I actually asked him if he had sharpened them before resizing and he said no, but to be fair I tested the lens in dim light on a tripod and might have had a little mirror shudder whereas he shot outdoors at a much faster shutter speed. At the other end this lens is amazingly sharp wide open so good actually that I am putting my nikon 85mm 1.8 up for sale. Anyhow thanks for the reply.
