  • In fact I focused on the base of the cross to try and get the whole focus point area filled, although it might have not worked out very well in the end. Will post some more shots once I have time ...
  • I am now suspecting that it was mostly due to lighting conditions. I had taken other test shots before (which I sadly deleted as I saw no use for them) but they were a lot better than these ...
  • *Meant to say that the last 3 shots were with the Kit lens (those at f3.5, f5, f5.6)
  • So I took these test shots in rapid succession, and from what I can see, some of them have missed focus (even on the kit lens). This time, I used single point focus at the base of the cross at the top.
  • Thanks for this, might have misfocused which is a mistake on my end as I didn't use single point. Will redo asap. Thanks!
  • Will redo the test with single point focus on the cross. Thanks!

  • Created discussion thread Nikon 17-55 Soft Images
    Hello! I have only posted once before but I basically stated that I bought a dropped Nikon 17-55 which now arrived and started testing out. From my tests, I can see that sometimes it produces ...
  • Thank you everyone for your opinions! I was in fact hesitant on buying it for around a week, but given the much cheaper price (it was around 280$) I decided to take the risk since she did advertise ...
  • I just bought the lens in the picture below for a good price but it has some exterior damage shown in the picture below. Do you think this will pose any issues? I'm thinking it was dropped although ...
