I have seen in thread that sellers commented that "this is the sharper lens I had tested"......
Does lens even from the same maker have different quality standard?
Does shops allow you to test the lens before buying? And on your own camera?
What to look out for? Do you guys bring a laptop to view the sharpness of the lens?
Is the variation in sharpness of lenses very obvious and absolutely necessary to do the testing?
I am thinking of shopping for the following lens:-
- Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II LD (~$630)
- Nikon AF-S 17-55 f/2.8G DX (~$2.1K)
Please advise....... I bought my Nikon 18-200VR without even testing.... just take and go man!!
