    Here is the 45 P at 2.8. Just a few quick "coffee can" shots for testing purposes. :biggrin:. Resized, leveled , minimal sharpen.

    Full shot...



  2. Seems a reasonable expectation. It may be wise to focus bracket, since even with a mild f/2.8 aperture it can be a little deceiving as to how well-focused it is.

    An old comparison of mine:

    Don, nice snapshot... I have been trying to find a reason to use this cute little lens instead 50/1.8 since MF is difficult to use at times.

    Tierdaen, those are very useful comparisons, and confirms what I saw from my 45P and 50/1.8D. However, I found 45P render better skin tone - maybe it's just me :)

    The sharpness of the 45P is really not bad, just that the 50 f1.8 AI-S is one of the sharpest lens from Nikon!
