Can a lens be too pwerful for a camera
Jul 9, 2013

Right I know I haven't put that very well so forgive me.

I have the A55 with a 70-300g and 70-400g lens.

When I have the A55 with the 70-300 the images look great, but when I put the 70-400g lens on they look worse.

I am wondering if the 70-400g is, if you like, too powerful for the sensor, too much resolution for it capable to handle and would it be better on a full frame sensor?

Or have I got a crap copy of the the lens

Cheers
