Hi guys I'm Alex and I'm new to photography. Just bought a Tamron 17-50mm VC lens and have read some reviews that Tamron 17-50mm vc has soft images. Is this image soft? By the way first image that was shot from store. Thanks

Seems like whether it's soft or not, might depend on what the setting were.

If that were hand held at 0.5 second, wouldn't it be super sharp?

Just bought this lens at a local camera shop. I'd been looking at them for a while and going back and forth between it and the sigma. Here's my first shot of my favorite model- Sadie! No pp, no cropping, etc. I think I'm going to be happy with this lens! :D

That's at 2.8. You got a great copy of the lens!

Here's another test photo...Yes, my wife is my guinea Pig! This was taken indoors, just natural light,no flash, vc turned off, on a tripod. I guess I cropped this about 60%. I really am pleased with this lens.

My first attempt at a DIY light tent/box. Used an on-camera flash since I don't have any other lighting. Handmade clay flowers.

My new one, like last autumn, was not sharp, but when it came back from service a few weeks later it sure was marvelous.

I'm taking it to the redwoods next weekend, the area I had in mind when buying it to replace my Canon 18-55mm.

:cool:
