    Post your sharpest photos here...

    I find myself constantly wondering what specific lenses are capable of in terms of color, contrast, and especially sharpness.

    Please post what you consider to be your sharpest photos from a strictly technical perspective.

    The most useful thing would be to post the original image resized, and then one of an actual pixels crop showing the fine detail.

    If anyone wants to know how to do this in PS, just let me know and I will post instructions here.

    Please include the camera body and lens at a minium, because it will help for everyone to understand what they can expect from a given lens.

    Heres one to start it.

    Canon 7D/85mm 1.2L II + Speedlight 580EX
    Iso-100
    f/8
    1/250th sec
    Manual Exposure Mode
    Flash Fired
    Mirror Lockup Enabled

    1. Original image resized



    2. Actual pixels crop

    EOS 7D / EOS 1v / 70-200mm 2.8L IS II / 85mm 1.2L II / 35mm 1.4L / 17-55mm 2.8 / 10-22mm 3.5-4.5 / 580EX / CS5 + LR3

    That is pretty sharp for that lens.

    Honestly I am a bit surprised...

    Well from a technical standpoint you can have a look at my comparison of 70mm, 150mm and 65mm macro lenses at varying apertures here:
    Triple Macro lens test - a set on Flickr

    And even compare the sharpness (again at varying apertures) of the MPE at varying magnifications here:
    MPE 65mm test shot series - a set on Flickr

    In addition to those my other sharp (very very sharp) lens is my 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2 which has test shots (with a 2*TC) here: 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2 test - a set on Flickr

    but the sharpest is proabably this:

    http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2589/...fbda64ef_o.jpg

    Which is a focus stack of 3 shots on top of each other - focus stacking (though tricky) often produces fantastically sharp shots as a result of the stacking process.

    That is very sharp...wow!

    Good job.
