Thread: 3rd party lens degrade

  1. #1

    Default 3rd party lens degrade

    Someone told me that 3rd party lens normally suffered from picture quality degradation after sometime. On the other hand, original lens will not.

    I wondered how true is this statement, provided the lens are kept in the drybox and well maintained.

    If the 3rd party lens did suffer from degradation, but what caused it?

    They degrade because people want to think they actually do.

    It's a thing in the past. 3rd party lenses did use to suffer from such problems due their lack of experience in constructing lenses. It's all in the past now.
