Re: Getting the most out of the 17-40L 4

For optimal sharpness across the frame, I've found the following:

Stick to f11-f16

Manual focus only.  Focused to infinity setting is too far and corners will be soft.  Usually my focus scale is slightly before the infinity setting.

My results are sharp across the entire frame using these methods,
