Also, what about the 24-120 f/4 VR? It's border performance is rather meh on FX, but on DX bodies it's razor sharp even wide open throughout most of the range.
I'm heading off to the snow in a few days, I'll see if I can grab anything that is a good indication of performance.

I've always found 24mm not wide enough personally. If they did make a 16-85mm f/4 VR though... yum.

Any opinions on Nikon's new macro? I guess it's for beginners.

Taken with my D3100, still in the process of learning how to use it :/ Haven't gotten around to outside shots, weather hasn't been all that nice lately

what's the sharpest for Nikon AF 18-70mm 3.5 lens?

I've notice f22 or higher it's really blurry. I tend to shoot around f16 when it's sunny.

According to both the reviews on SLR Gear and Photozone, it appears that at all focal lengths it's best between f/5.6 and f/8, which is generally the "sweet spot" on APS-C.

Somehow i've gotten it into my head that f/8 is sharpest. I've noticed pretty serious diffraction at as low as f/16 on some lenses I own though.

Diffraction is limited by camera, not lens.

f/5.6 on my 50 f/1.4

completely untrue. Diffraction is based entirely the design of the lens and has nothing to do with the camera or sensor.

Diffraction is caused by light bouncing off blade edge of the aperture.
