    Where exactly is the 'sweet spot' of this lens? f/4-8? higher, lower? :confused: 
     
  2. On my copy, the sweet range starts at f/4. But that's not to say it can't be used wide open.

    f/2.8

    I can't help you at the other end of the scale. It's great at f/11, but I've never used it above f/11.

    I agree with Frank. From f/4 to f/11 the thing is as sharp as it gets.
     
  4. Frank;

    Did you do any PP on the background of that picture?
     
  5. I did some work on the left end of the table behind the subject. There was sunlight directly on it, and it was a blown highlight. Other then that, no. The blurred background is strictly caused by the lens.

    i still think the 28-70 2.8 renders SKIN better than any, including the new 24-70 2.8...;-)))
     

  7. Thanks Frank, I thought so. :smile:
     
  8. I noticed the same thing. I thought it was my imagination.
    Since I wanted one really bad, I thought that maybe my mind was convincing me in strange ways. :eek: :biggrin:

    Still looking for one.
     
  9. I often shoot mine at f/2.8.

    I love the color rendition

    I actually prefer the one at f/4. but may just be a difference in subject.

    Nicely done!
