well exactly
what is more amazing is that just looking at a photograph and not seeing it for what it is, is kinda silly. I really dont mind but theres no need for people to bang on about a build deficient Tamron like it means something, especially when the topic is build quality

In terms of crisply resolving to individual pixels in the absolute corner, the only match I have seen in "amateur small-format land" (i.e. excluding MF digital and scanning backs on a view camera) is a Leica 21mm at f/8.0 on an M9 - that is, after you've corrected the colour casts.

So... I'm not going to trade my E-5 for that Nokia Camera Phone or Sony P&S yet.

yeah that was over the top too
