Re: Comparison of five lenses at 50mm

I know the 50 f/1.7 and in my case I found it to be very sharp from f/5.6, at least on the center, borders can be a bit soft. At bigger apertures than f/4 (f/1.7, f/2.0 and f/2.8) the lens produce soft images (very soft at f/1.7).

Macro lenses are almost every time very sharp, I wouldn't be surprised with the performance of the Sigma macro. On the other side I think the Sigma zoom is known as a not so great lens, and it's a surprise for me to see your findings against the fixed Minolta 50mm.

Don't know nothing about the Tamron.
