Well sharp lenses on earth don't have to be expensive...though many of them are

With the launch of digital cameras, especially full frame, many lenses are proven not as adequate as they thought to be. We are lucky to have many good lens review sites such as DxO, Photodo, Photozone, SLR gear, LensTip, LensRental among many others. Of all these lenses, 50mm lenses on FF bodies are, IMHO, the weakest of all. The only near perfect one is the recently tested Zeiss Otus 1.4/55

Here is one linkRoger's Test of Otus where he tested the Otus is around 1000 line at f2.

FE 1.8/55's result came to me as a surprise....esp only a few hours after I paid mine at 1000
