This was reviewed to be a good sharp lens for the $ but mine is quite bad especially at the edges. My DA 16-45 blows it away in the sharpness department. I'm wondering if I have a bad copy or is this just not a very good lens?

.. better say exposure time, is only 1/15 of a second.

So of course it blurs.

Decrease exposure time to at least 1/80 sec, and then compare the results.

You must not have seem my second set of photos in the thread.

I'll take another look. Thank you.

However, I can testify that regular DA40 Ltd is a fantastic lens, and well worth having. I strongly suggest you get an Ltd version instead of 40mm XS.
