Just got an F 50 1.7 myself last week, and I've been putting it through a bit of an amateur gauntlet to let the camera and the lens spread their wings a bit.

Those shots look about right at F2. At least, if I took a picture with your settings and cropped in and saw that, I wouldn't think anything was wrong.

I'm not sure what you're doing to your camera, with all of this tightening and unscrewing business, but it seems excessive.
Yep yep, maybe i overreacted, but it was nice to learn how to open the lens to calibrate if necessary...
Now i'm a bit better...i remembered my lens being almost tack sharp at f2. I'm crazy
Thank you!
