35mm 1.4 Sharpness

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one who struggles to get the promised sharpness with the 35mm 1.4? 

I'd expected it to be sharp like the 56mm I rented (even at 1.2) but I find I have to stop down to 2.8 to get the get nice and sharp in the centre. Seems a bit sort of fringey at 1.4-2 as well.

So much so, that I'm thinking of returning. I'd rather put the £500 towards a 56 and a 16.

Mine is fantastically sharp, wide open. I tested it against my x100f to verify how soft the x100 actually is,  and it's sharper in the center and at the edges at 1.4 than the 100f is at f2.

 

Here's a shot wide open, straight out of camera.

Yeah, mine is really struggling even in the centre, unless I stop down. It's nothing like the 16mm or 56mm.

So I'm gonna send it back. It's a lot of money for something I have doubts about!
