Thank you! Looks great to me. IS on this lens must be effective as well, to get that sharpness at 67 mm, 1/30 :-).

^^ Nice, very sharp. What F stop did you use? I think that for me 5.6 is sharpest, but need to do some more tests.

Based on the tests at this web site, it seems pretty much a toss-up between f/5.6 and f/8, except at 15mm, where f/5.6 clearly wins:

In particular, the edges are generally sharper at f/8, although the center is sometimes a little sharper at f/5.6

Its funny how in that review they said the zoom ring is not prone to zoom creep, yet in others (and other users) its the opposite.
I find all the on line reviews to be hit or miss, depending on the specific copy of the lens and not to be taken as gospel unless they all agree on a certain point.

I'm not knocking the lens, just the validity of on line reviews.

I've read of zoom creep on copies of all my (zoom) lenses. All I can say is that I've never experienced it with any of them, nor with the zoom lenses I had back in film days. I guess I'm just lucky.

Thanks for link, those interactive blur charts are very interesting. I am surprised how well the kit lens performs against the 15-85 (at least on the charts). I just assumed that the kit lens would be rubbish so bought my camera without it and got the 15-85.
