What sort of sharpening do you guys have to do on shots taken with this lens? I have trouble getting mine acceptably sharp...

i am getting Great sharpness f8 - f11 and very acceptable even @ 500mm, i am finding F8 to be the sweet spot.

Post a capture you are concerned with and leave your exif intact.

I tend to do quite a bit of selective sharpening in PS, using either smart sharpen or high pass filters
