How much can a photo be out of focus and still produce what looks like a decent image. This can be a confusing question because of the variables, Circle of Confusion and size of the final print are just two.

But here is an example, the first image is the full frame reduced to 1200 pixels longest edge. It could have been as long as 1800 pixels.

But
here
is
the
surprise.

This is a 1200 x 774 pixel 100% crop.

The images are in my gallery if you want to see the 1200 pixel versions.

Now does anyone have an excuse for out of focus images? LOL
