wanted: examples from FA 28-70mm f/4 @ f/4

Does anybody have large, wide open examples from the FA 28-70 at f/4? I have been thinking of picking up a copy of this lens.

These 2 are quite representative I guess. The lens focuses really quick and it is not large, makes sense for action shots, mostly in situations where you wouldn§t carry a more expensive lens. I dislike the bokeh of it.

Have very few wide open keepers - which says it all! Contrary to popular opinion, I didn't get on with this lens at all, and sold it (at a slight loss...) after a couple of weeks of preferring the 18-55 kit lens.

Here's one where the IQ actually looks quite good at f/4, but still had to do quite a bit of PP (sharpening) though:


Here's a 100% crop from the centre of a similar shot, no PP this time:

I am also Lucky Pierre here. I don't have to worry about being fired, but the host is definitely NSFW.
