Not necessarily disagreeing, but where are these sharp lenses that are no good?



It's not that the sharpest lenses are all bad but putting too much emphasys on buying only the sharpest lens and not considering it's other qualities.

For example i also use Canon gear, i recently bought a 70-200mm/4 L, i decided to buy the non-IS instead of the IS even if the IS is considered sharper. After asking on the Canon forums for some info on how they would perform with Extension tubes , the answers were that the non-IS performed better than the IS version with ext. tubes with better IQ and general rendition of the images.
