On Tamron develops 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 superzoom for APS-C SLRs news story (211 comments in total)

Hm, I wonder why people who are looking für the best quality are buying a dslr and add such a superzoomlense which lowers the picquality to an just very average level?!

Far to much glass.

I tried an 18-270 Tamron and 18-200 Sigma and sold it. The Tamron shows lots of faults (CA, fringing, vigneting) and was very soft on the long end so that I did not use it above 200mm. Only between 24 and 150mm it looks quite ok, but not outstanding.

I prefer an 17-70/50 sigma or maybe an 16-85 VR.

after doing your corrections safe the pic under a new name for example pic.jpg as pic1.jpg.
And then cancel the project!
then you have both files in your working directory.

beckmarc: Great news on the Fuji x trans sensor support

Are there any improvements for other cameras? For example the Sony RX100, I allways get very strange yellow-orange colours out of raw for faces in available light. In JPGs it looks better but using high iso it shows less details than raw development.

In reply to:

bigjay: the button with 2 dials that change function on button press harks back to the Dynax 7xi film camera from Minolta from the early 90's which used this approach. worked well then - promises to work well now. Cant wait to see a Nex 7 in store.

Great camera, what a pitty that there are no small and good zoomlenses. It´s a waste of their apabilities to use this cam with the bad nex kits 18-55/16mm.

And using it with a bigger 16-50 prime lense make no sense, the body is to small from the ergonimcal side for such a big and heavy lense. I would like sth like the X14-42 from Panasonic for NEX!

On Just posted: Our group test of travel zoom compact cameras news story (133 comments in total)

Whar aboubt the last years winner, the ZS7 / TZ10 in this competition? I checked the pics.
It is still available and cheap and seems to my mind at low iso better than the sx230, on par at iso200 and a little behind at iso400.
At iso800 + the canon wins clearly but i wouldn´t use it ayway, so its no point for me.
But the tz20 has 25mm and native 3:2/16:9!

In reply to:

Chaitanya S: Any high ISO images?

Yes, turning nr off mainly effects higher ISO images. So it makes no sense to test such a parameter using low iso AND in daylight.

NR starts destroying pics starting above ISO400-800, more at >ISO1250. In Available Light or Nightlight!

So I would like to see such a sample, too.

Is there a free choice for geting a black PL3 with a silver or black kit-lense?
