Sharpness Cont... 4
Sharpness at 70mm
The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens was attached to a Nikon D600 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 full frame at 70mm
Centre sharpness is impressive for a zoom lens from f/8 through f/16, but not so great either wide open or stopped down.
Edge sharpness is similarly poor at f/4.5-f/5.6 and f16-f22.
