    I was looking at this photo on my computer and did a 100% crop and was amazed and how sharp the 25/1.4 was.

    You've lost me, mate, I'm not sure exactly what I'm supposed to be looking at? :confused:

    I think the ROI is the magnifying glass.

    The enlargement shows the hole pattern of the textile sunscreen outside the window.

    Haha! That's awesome... I love my 25 f/1.4, though I've been neglecting mine a little since I got the 25mm f/0.95 recently. Thanks for posting this, maybe I'll put mine in the camera bag for a while and try to give it some more camera time. Such a great lens - sharp and crisp images with such a great rendering. I remember when I first got the PL 25 doing my typical test shots of our dogs and being totally blown away at how crisp they were and how I could make out each individual hair in their fur :biggrin:

    I love my PL 25 so much that even though it means I have two 25mm lenses I still can't bring myself to part with it. My only (minor) gripe is the non reversible lens hood, because it's a pain to pack.

    That's excellent considering that at best, that screen looks like a thin shaded film.....to pick up those tiny perforations so well at magnification is impressive. Credit to the battleaxe as well !

    I just can't bring myself to replace it yet, much to the dismay of my daughter.
