Sharpness at 105mm

For these tests, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens was attached to a Nikon D7000 body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Exposure delay mode was activated. Tonal and colour variances across the crops are due to changes in natural light during the session. The 100% crops represent about 1/400th of the total frame area.

The central areas of the frame are sharpest with the lens used wide open, but the borders don't sharpen up until you hit f11.
