Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO Review
Sharpness at 50mm
For this review, the sharpness test is carried out by photographing a real-world sample, rather than a test chart. The Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro Lens was mounted on a Canon EOS 6D Mark II, which was in-turn mounted on a sturdy tripod. Exposure delay was activated to prevent camera-shake. Any changes in tone you might see across the crops are due to natural light changes during the shooting session.
The full frame at 50mm
At the centre, the image is sharpest between f/4 and f/11, but is still very sharp at f/2.8, and f/16. Sharpness drops off a little at f/22, being more noticeably soft at f/32. At the edges, you’ll find the sharpest results between f/5.6 and f/16.
