I have discovered that my 50mm 1.4G lens is not Sharp as I would want it to be or expected when shooting wide open (e.g 1.4, 1.8, 2, 2.8).
I really haven't tested it at higher than f/8, but I have also noticed that it's still NOT as sharp as I want.
My settings are: Manual mode, 200 ISO, 125 SP, f/ 1.4, 1.8, 2, 2.8 even 5.6.
And still not as sharp. When I view my photos in the Nikon ViewNXsoftware zoom in at 50-80% they are very pixelated...shouldn't they be sharp?
So I'm thinking is it the lens softness or could it be me/lens/camera? I have read that this lens is really nice, but not as sharp, read it on a blog so not sure how I can confirm this.
Any suggestions, relating experiences, help?
Shooting with Nikon D90.
