Re: DA16-45 VS Sigma 17-70 test {seek conclusion}

Obviously the DA 18-55 is a kit lens and not even in the same class
as the DA 16-45 or Sigma 17-70.

Hmmm... maybe obvious to some. I have the 18-55 and the 16-45, and my two copies are most definately both in the same league.

But this is the argument that got me into trouble on this forum in the first place, so I'd better qualify this a bit:

I just reviewed some of the images I've taken with the 16-45, and other than at 45mm f/4 or distances further than about 50 meters, everything looks quite sharp. I'm going to pick it up from the distributor (in for repairs) tomorrow and do more real-world testing against the 18-55. Hopefully I can present the results in a less controversial manner this time and will do a better job handling the large-scale "disagreement" it may cause, depending on what my conclusions are.
