Very sharp and contrasty from f/5.6 when used as regular 50. Very sharp through all apertures in macro range.
When used as a regular 50 edges dissapoint at f/2.5-4.0
Images are sharp from corner to corner starting from f/8.0.
F/5.6 is not bad although we can see little softness not only in the corners but also in the edges.
At f/2.5 softness of the edges is very visible.
When I use this lens in the studio shooting full body shots I have to close it to f/8.0 or at least to f/5.6.
Contrast is very high through all the f/stops.
In my opinion this lens performs best in macro range unless stopped down.
