Hi folks!

What do you think of the wide end (17mm) of this lens? I have been using it since December and I am often not satisfied.

Here is one of the best I could do. Still the flowers and the leaves are washed out :(

1/500s, f4.0, iso 200,

this one is 1/200, iso 200, f5.6. Most of my 17mm pictures look something like this (ignore the dark areas, that was because of the too contrasty scene).

this one is 1/200, iso 200, f5.6. Most of my 17mm pictures look something like this (ignore the dark areas, that was because of the too contrasty scene).

First one does look softer on the left - could need a tune-up by Tamron. But also - f8 is the sweet spot for this lens - sharpest and greater depth of focus. You can use a smaller aperture and slower shutter for that landscape.

Second one looks fairly sharp, just looks like the trees are overexposed.

How's the performance on this between 17-24mm range? Looking to buy this lens for steadicam video work.

F8? I would say f4 is the sharpest.

Also the hyperfocal distance at 17mm is 3.82 meters only (12.5 ft). That means if you focus on any average landscape DOF is already infinite.

Are you looking at 17mm?
