Took a test shot at f/2.2. These are completely unedited RAW images converted to jpeg.

Original re-sized


100% crop


What do you guys think? Fairly sharp?

Could you please do the same photo at different apertures ? It should be sharper at f/5.6. The DOF is too much reduced on these pics to appreciate the sharpen.

I am very impressed with mine at < f4 but my 70-200 is actually a tiny bit sharper at f4/85mm which surprised me even though I have never found fault with the 70-200.

Bohdan - I may be, and probably am, completely wrong.
