The old Beercan still shines, no complaints over sharpness here!

More Dyxumer, less photographer.

From my present beercan.

At f/4 and 150mm--


And this beercan, contrary to most reviews I've seen (and even compared to a previous beercan I had), is sharp in the center at 210mm wide open (f/4, only default sharpening in Lightroom, no added sharpening beyond that)--


More samples showing vignetting and sharpness here
