Superka's reviews

  • Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp at wide angle
    soft at 22mm

    One of my favorite lens. I use it for making spherical panoramas at 10mm mostly. It is very sharp at all focal length up to apr.20mm and soft at 22mm, but who cares.
    I also tried sigma 10-20mm, but Canon was better in my test.

  • Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical IF SP AF

    3 out of 10 points and not recommended
    2.8 aperture
    Decentering defects

    I had Tamron 18-200 for a long time and it was nice. I expected to have a nice lens when bought this 17-50.
    This lens can be sharp, I'm sure. But I've got a sample with huge decentering defect. I tried to change it to another, but it had similar problem. Only the third was symmetrical, but I was too disappointed. I don't like this lens, and had sell it at last. I don't recommend it. QC is poor at the factory. Try it carefully before buying.
