Tell me about it. Maybe part of my problem with needing such good optics? :-)

Speaking of fine definition, I just shot some portraits in the studio with
my 70-180 2.8 and 100 ISO neg film (Fuji) and was blown away. This lens
truly is not for the "fuzzy wuzzy" school of portrait photography. It
creates such three dimensional images, and every detail (should I say
imperfection?) shows up.
