Re: Sharp at 1.8?

I was going to buy the 20 1.8 but when testing the lens in the store it was not really sharp at 1.8 and also there was a weird smearing from black to white. I can try to post the sample later. The seller also told me that this does not look good and recommended me not to take it.

I will try the lens another time in the future but I guess this was a lemon.


I am not sure how strict your criteria is but this lens is quite sharp at f/1.8 in the center. One thing about these f/1.8G primes is their plastic build means they could have been dropped and not really show any outward signs of damage but the internal lens elements might be slightly misaligned.
