Re: Completely Agree Re: The Tamron 17-50 VC version is really a great lens

Yes, Yogi, it does look rather soft on my monitor too, but my point in showing this 100% crop was to show low light capabilities with VC, hence slow shutter speed results; this was shot at 1/25 sec, and you may imagine how sharp the fur would appear had it been taken at 1/640 sec, the shutter speed for the dog's eye crop posted above by "victorian squid."

The shot above my crop is the straight raw conversion from which the 100% crop was taken. With my typical pp of raw shots, I would also re-size and apply sharpening as necessary. I believe this preliminary showing of the straight raw conversion demonstrates impressive results at 1/25 sec from the Tamron 17-50 VC.

Thank you for the feedback.

When you get down to the nuts and bolts of photography, the results depend on the 'nut' behind the camera!

See the 'Gear List' in my 'Profile' for my current equipment.
