    Both of my copies are pretty darn sharp from 1.4 but you really have to nail focus and have adequate s.s. Without knowing your shot settings I can't offer any tips on getting a sharper image.

    Seems more reasonably out of focus than reasonably sharp.

    I'd say you had to be there to give an accurate account, but thanks for the insight. BTW, yanks actually do irony.

    May I ask why your subject appears to be eating a piece of green foam rubber?
