Nigel thanks for your comment,
I guess you are right in saying the fly is exposed too soft ...
I deleted the first image and have now uploaded the original images of the fly (no processing...)
Maybe I did a little to much noise rudection on to the first image and there fore it looked quite soft..
Anyway , I think this lens has good quality when you know how to work with it ...;-) maybe I have to get used to it ..!

Best regards,
