Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR Review
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR Sharpness at 105mm
The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G VR lens was attached to a Nikon D7000 body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session. The 100% crops represent about 1/400th of the total frame area.
The full frame at 105mm
Centre sharpness at 105mm is very decent at f/5.6, and improves further on stopping down to f/8, which is the sweet spot.
The corners also look good at f/5.6, better at f/8 and best at f11.
