I know the thread is in jest, and hard to tell when people are joking, but in all seriousness, that is soft. Either you missed focus, took a 100% crop of an OOF area, or the lens really is soft..
Sorry to have to point it out.
Yes, it is soft as a $500 lens, wide open at 1.8 with a quick shot of the dog on the floor with the sun streaming in. Would the Canon 28mm 1.8 be anything other than a bit soft wide open, esp. in those conditions?
The point is that it's not HoRRiBle as many overzealous pixel peepers would have you think. It's not "pillow soft", at least to me. You're not pointing anything out that wasn't known . Now, if I took it at 2.8 with proper exposure, RAW, adjusted it in DPP, tweaked some more in Photoshop and then sharpened it, it would probably be a bit better, I admit
