Thank you! Great tip about camera picture adjustment, i didn´t know this setting affects jpeg-previews as well.
About Tammy 17-50 non VC, i traded this lens for Canon 24-70L f/2.8 because of recent FF upgrade, but i have to say, this little tammy is really much better on crop camera across the frame with so much better CA control and corner sharpness. I think it´s optically superb lens if you don´t mind loud AF motor and plastic body.
I agree, the Tammy 17-50 f/2.8 non-VC is an extremely good lens for the money. I owned that lens for about 3 yrs and got a lot of good shots that were very sharp. It worked well with my 60d and 70d.
I replaced the Tammy when a friend of mine was selling his Canon 17-55 EF-S IS f/2.8 USM lens. When I compared the two side-by-side, the Canon clearly outperformed the Tammy, particularly in low light. The only negative to the Canon is it's a little bigger and heavier, and some copies, like the one I have, will exhibit zoom creep which is fixed by adding a Lens-Band. So, for the best budget lens, go for the Tammy, but if you want the best all around zoom lens, the Canon is the clear winner but at nearly twice the price.
