I hate to rain on Paddler's parade but I have the same reaction. . . Did the conversion to JPEG somehow have an effect on image sharpness?

My first attempts with this lens. I agree it's not all that sharp, not sure why. JPEG conversion? Could be a DOF problem, or possibly wind. The branches are sharper than the leaves, for instance. Or maybe a focus problem due to manual focus. I like the contrast and color, though.  I'll be shooting it against my 24/1.8G on a tripod in the near future.  If it doesn't do better than the G I'll either send it back or have Zeiss inspect it.
