How to test a lens for sharpness...

Ever shoot with one of your lenses and think it doesn't look quite as sharp as it should?

Ever buy a used lens and want to make sure it works like it should?

Ever stand in front of a mirror in woman’s clothing and think you look pretty? ah... wait, strike that last one, I just meant to think it.

;)

Here's a great video tutorial on testing your lens sharpness.

I'm a Canon shooter and don't know if the D3 has it, but using mirror lockup would be beneficial to this test, especially at the 1/15 shutter speed you used.
