I know, I know, this test target is fine for checking resolution in the center, but not so good for checking the edges and corners. :- )
The equipment used was a Canon 40D with 18-55mm f3.5-4.5 IS lens at 55mm. I’d seen tests that made me think this humble zoom might be a good performer at 55mm at macro distances, and I wanted to see for myself. It turned out to be pretty decent, and it’s next-gen IS system makes it especially well suited to this task, so much so that I have kept the lens almost entirely for this purpose. This shot was taken at 1/50 sec, f8, handheld. This is a straight out of camera jpeg, w/ only the default level of in-camera sharpening applied (level 3 of 7, as I recall).
