I bought a 85mm 1.8 last year based on my great experience renting one. However, for some reason, I can never seem to get the same sharpness out of mine in comparison to the rental lens. I am starting to wonder if something isn't right with my lens.
Here is a comparison. Top photo is with my copy of the 85mm and the bottom is the rental 85mm.
