So my 24-105 is soft @ 105mm wide open, normal?

Is this normal? Fine details are kind of...well they look like they're lower contrast and have some kind of angelic halo around them sometimes. Maybe just bad indoor lighting causes it?

105mm, f4 then f4.5.

Quit taking pictures of stuff taped to your wall or sitting on your desk, go and take real world photo's. Check those photo's at normal viewing for softness, if you are still disappointed send the lens to Canon or pony up cash for better glass.

I believe the OP has mentioned the genuine affliction of OCD. Which is not funny, compared to the loose usage hereabouts poking fun at saddo pixel peepers.

It may be that photography is precisely the wrong hobby for the OP; I cannot think of any recreational activity more prone to obsessive/compulsive behaviour.

VERY few lenses are at their sharpest wide open. That's common knowledge. Hey, even my 135 f2L is a smidge soft wide open...when I pixel peep!

It is a very good lens. Had one for 5 years and it did me well. Sharp when stopped down but then you lose Bokeh. Suffers at 24mm on FF. Even with correction software people looked distorted on the outsides in group shots. I finally sold it but I still miss it as a walk around. I would have kept it for that if I could have afforded to after all the upgrades.
