No. I think it is time for someone to learn how to use a lens that the majority of the users can take beautiful photos and are very happy with it.

Blaming the tool was always a big speciality for those who can't use it properly.


Even the best photog can make use of a lens that is not so ordinary and do even better.

You'll be surprised.

Photography is not to me a challenge in getting the best quality from equipment with ordinary performance or limitations.

But this is exactly what photography is about. A good photographer has absolutely no limitation as you describe with a lens such as the 17mm 1.8.  If you have a problem with that lens or consider it disappointing due to limitations, sorry there is still a lot that you have to learn.

But back to the topic. Can you post samples that prove your claims? I mean from your own experience, not anything taken from reviews.
