    Tamron 17-50 non-VC vs. VC

    photomalaysia@gmail.com

    hi guys, if anyone in Penang bought the VC version & doesn't have non-VC version (well... who would want to have both X D) & is interested to do some side-by-side comparison tests, I will be very glad to sponsor (because also want to know exactly what improvements to expect from the new version hehe, especially bokeh wise )

    Canon mount anyway, thanks

    Not to my experience and I've used both. The VC doesn't lose in sharpness at all although I can't do side by side comparison because I've sold my non-VC.

    Chance upon this and would like to check if my 'feeling' is correct. I compare my 17-50 non cc with my Nikon AFD 50 f1.8, somehow the sharpness is never near the Nikon lens. Is it true or just my imagination?
