    So even before i point any tips, get back to the "Guides" and sticky posts in this section before you get into frustation mode.

    Another thing, why are you posting picture taken 1.5 yrs back!!

    are you just trying to play smart or act as a propganda for renting lenses or something!!
    could also be browsing through old photos and then realised shots are still weak.. or he forgot to change the date(happened on my d50)

    anyway threadstarter, you should learn to use the tripod more, and set your camera on timer to prevent handshake. you dont need to increase suich high iso even if its nightshots. just fix up the tripod , mount the camera, set the settings and let it take the picture. the buildings wont run away you know

    TS, I don't think your egg shot with the 50/1.8 was so wonderful that no lens could match it...
    Unless by 'quality', you're referring to the thin depth-of-field, then that's another matter.

    If you're trying to compare sharpness, you should do a more controlled real-world study.
    Mount your camera on tripod with the 50/1.8. Set to f/8 on aperture priority. ISO maybe 200 or under. Focus and shoot.
    Without moving the camera, dismount the lens and mount your 18-xxx lens. Similarly, set to f/8. Focus on the same subject and shoot. Post both photos up and see if there's any difference.
    Exploring! :)

    TS, your EXIF info is really weird...
    Anyway, if most of it is to be believed, then you haven't grasped the fundamentals.
    You're trying to shoot at almost 200mm focal length with 1/30s shutter speed... errr.... ~scratch head~. You dont' need me to tell you that it's not the advisable way to shoot with a telephoto lens, right?
