I'm looking through the lens archives and I see lots of folks posting samples and then saying, "this lens is tack sharp" or something to that effect. However, the images being posted are not all "tack sharp". I feel like I struggle to get my images tack sharp. Is it that my eyes are in better condition and I can spot that some of these photos are indeed, not tack sharp, although some of the image owners think they are?
I own the 70-200mm 2.8, and b/c of the weight, not all of my images from it are tack sharp b/c I'm hand-holding for the most part. I guess I'm just confused at some of the samples folks post. I wouldn't post my images I considered soft.
Also, I guess b/c I'm a portrait photographer, I notice when the focus falls to the nose instead of the eyes. I am looking to buy a new lens, but I guess it's hard because I wonder if what I'm seeing is right or wrong.
Have I thoroughly confused you all? Happy New Year! lol
