Ross, if you read the Fred Miranda article carefully, you'll see the reason for this is quite compelling. How do you design a fixed hood for a wide to tele zoom trying to balance the need for flare control and minimising vignetting, not an easy task I would imagine!RossChang said:wander what's the rational of the extension while at the wide end? to cater for the hood?... tat's a bit rubbish..
The full extension at 24mm is around 6 to 8cm, can't remember exactly. ot significantly very long or would it be an issue.RossChang said:
I think the theory is that with high resolution sensors you begin to discern the resolution limits of even the best lenses. I assure you though, L quality is obvious even on a 3MP D30, contrast and colour being the other important factors.RossChang said:Does that mean that the quality differences is not noticable with other bodies?
