Tamron AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di-II LD SP ZL Aspherical (IF)

Is 17mm on the Sig the same as 17mm on The Tam. I guess its the macro term that is messing with me.

Macro has nothing to do with field of view. 17mm is 17mm, regardless of lens.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Nice work, Marco. It looks good to be in HK (or is it Singapore?).
