18-55 reconsidered
9 months ago

Hello,

For a long time I have been unfairly harsh towards my kit lens 18-55 wr. I waited and waited for a new lens to come and when it finally did. (20-40) my disappointment where big to be honest. Although it´s a fine lens in many respects I couldnt bring myself to buy it because the lack of edge sharpness. I then decided to give my old 18-55 a last chance. I went out shooting raw like a mad man and then I w

ent home and run the pics through Lightroom 5 wich I recentley bought. And what happend? When I did all the adjustment I could find, like Cromatich abberation, vingetting color contrast, sharpening etc. the result was: I now like the 18-55 wr. It is quite good if one shot raw and do a lot off pp. Here is one example wich is very representative. I focused on the blue beemer numberplate wide open 18mm. I Think it shows what is possible to do with this lens. Cheers
