 Post subject: EF 50mm F1.8 question
PostPosted: Sat Jul 14, 2007 2:49 am 
I was wondering at what aperture this lens is the sharpest ? because sometimes i got relaly sharp pictures while sometimes not as sharp.

Maybe I should use Av mode at f5.6 or so

Looky here: http://www.photozone.de/8Reviews/lenses ... /index.htm
The MTF50 diagram 3/4 down the page explains quite good what sharpness you get when stopping down.

so its at f/4 ?

Im really worried about what lens to bring.

the 50 is so sharp and good, but i definitely needs zoom for wide angle

Yeah, f4.0 is peak at the centre, but you still gain border-sharpness (and perhaps a little contrast too) until f8.0.
