Sharpness at 50mm

The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens was attached to a Nikon D700 body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Exposure delay mode was activated. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session. The 100% crops represent about 1/300th of the total frame area.

Centre and edge sharpness is best in the f/8-f/16 range, but f/5.6 and f/22 are perfectly usable too.
