Sometime ago I had the opportunity to buy the lengendary Nikkor 50mm 1.8. The AF-D version. The problem is that I don't think it's super sharp. Knowing that all the rest of the world disagrees with me, I started to think that my lens is defective. I own the 28mm AI-S which is VERY sharp close-up and the Tamron SP 90mm, which is also very sharp. My Nikkor 50mm is not in the same level of these two, though. I compare the 50mm 1.8 with a slow 28-80mm in the 50mm position: Ok sharpness, but not extremely sharp. What is wrong here? My lens is defective? I bought it a long time ago in B&H, would they still return it? I would like to ask our fellow users to post some 100% crops from scans or from digital pictures taken with the nikkor 50mm 1.8. I hope somebody can help. Cheers.
