Sorry, maybe I can not write something that others can interpret any better than I can take a pic.

My intent was, and still is, that the pic in the link is one that is difficult to determine focus, and softness, to me. Nothing more, nothing less.

A SOFT photo can be obtained regardless of focus, as others have stated, manual lens, or AF.

Maybe my proposed test should include manual focus lens also!!??

Back to the original topic, a specified photo would be something others could compare their camera to, not guess, on sharpness.

JMHO
