Posted By: camerons, 11-24-2013, 12:35 AM

Went for a short walk today at Mt. Cootha which is very close to Brisbane's C.B.D.

I wanted to give the Tamron 17-50 its first good outing and do some comparisons with the DA*16-50. Here's a few shots.

Tamron:












It seems the Pentax is slightly back focused compared to the Tamron so this isn't a great comparison. Not sure if this is the lens' fault or mine.

Pentax:

Looks like you have gotten the hang of the new lens.

Ta. The Tamron definitely holds its own. I thought that the Pentax would surely produce nicer colours but they seem fairly comparable. The Tamron is definitely plenty sharp. The Pentax seems to have nicer bokeh though. I'll keep testing for a few more weeks before making a decision.

Thanks. I do love this zoom range.
