Stopping down when zooming 28-70 with WACP

Recommended Posts

I tried using my WACP with the 28-70 zoomed in for some shark photos but post-trip image review showed softness outside the center of the frame. I guess I need to stop down a bunch when using the WACP at 70mm even though its sharp on the edges wide open at 28mm. I dont remember the same issue with the 16-35 on an 8.5 dome but maybe I wasnt paying as much attention or was already stopped down a bunch even at the wide end. Anyone have any advice for how much to stop it down or how much of the 28-70 range is supposed to be usable on the WACP?

What are you shooting at f stop wise? and how does your copy of the lens perform at 70mm on the surface at those f stops? A not so good copy is always a possibility, assume this is the old Nikon 28-70 f3.5-4.5, maybe purchased second hand?

With my sample of the 28-70 I would avoid anything wider than F5.6 whem zoomed at 70mm. F5.6 is ok, F8 preferable.
