No I made shots of a newspaper on a table in 1m distance, and compared how 
much lines are sharp. But I admit the proceeding was less than academic. 
Once I've time I'll repeat it with more scientific approach, and use the 
35/1.4 asph instead of the rather soft canon 50/1.2... I just fear I'm 
missing the time for stuff like that as I have begun to work again - and 
have to catch up a lot...
all the best
