Tkbslc- you say there is no way to demonstrate a lens? Odd.

What I said (or meant to say) was that there is no way to demonstrate just a lens by itself. It has to be attached to a camera, right? So then there is more in the equation than just the lens. The camera sensor, in body processing, AA filter, resizing algorithm, monitor or paper quality, all come into play, wouldn't they? Or if you go analog, I guess the film grain and the developing technique woudl also have a lot to say about the sharpness.

Doesn't that make sense? I guess I am just saying I don't know how you ever make it just about the lens when we are all submitting our pictures from different computers and camera bodies which also play a part in the final image. There is no way to take the camera body out of the equation unless we all passed around the same camera body to shoot our sharpest picture with.

I understand what you are saying. And I agree.

There is no absolute way of testing a lens(other then line resolution tests). There is only a relative way of testing a lens. Which means lens comparisons using a constant variable for all the factors you mentioned.

Taken with my 80-200 AF-S... this is one of many on this level of sharpness though, this lens can't take a soft photo (unless I muck it up somehow).

After seeing Tony's eye shot I have nothing to bring to the table!

Anything from your 60/2.8 should do just fine. That is pretty sharp lens.
