Re: Test shot: Sigma 19 vs Sony 10-18 vs Sony 16-50

"Although I posted a comparison shot from the $100 16-50 zoom at 24mm and one from the $1000 24 1.8 at f8. No one could tell the difference."

I think I remember that. It was a nice demonstration.

But did you bother to take a look at the pictures the OP posted? Just click the 100% details view.

The 19 mm looks good. The other two look quite poor.

Real life photography for me is taking some nice shots on vacation with my family and expecting things look reasonably sharp when we get home. The 19 mm would accomplish that. The 16-50 and Sony 10-18 apparently can't if we take the pictures the OP posted as a guide.  Shots like those I would be really disappointed with if that was all I came home with from vacation.

But maybe the particular photos the OP posted are with defective lenses or something else went wrong? Please take a look and let us know what you think.
