Kalimera arkadaş! You're early; )

As I wrote above, I don't remember such results at wide apertures from theyashica 45mm f/1.4 lens I hadon my film days! Perhaps that's aarying sweet spot issue for specific lenses you're addressing. Here is a good comparison, though the lens is 50mm : http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/..._c16/page4.asp

The chart here also confirms it: http://www.photozone.de/canon-eos/29...review?start=1

Is there a significant improvement at narrower apertures?Somefurther comparisons shotatf/5.6orf/8 mm (and using theself timer) could help.
