Is there special technique when using F2.8 lenses?
Jan 22, 2010

I have an A300 and recently bought a Tamron 17-50 F2.8 to replace the kit lens. The Tamron lens has very good reviews in almost all forums I have visited including Dyxum.

I can't understand why my photos with this lens seems soft compared to my kit 18-70 and 55-200 Sony lenses.

Is there a specific technique or setting that I should use to get the most out of this lens? Unfortunately, I don't have a second body to test it with. I am going to a local Sony shop this weekend to try and shoot with this lens on their demo Alpha bodies to see if there is something wrong with my A300 body.
