ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Beercan
17-50mm f/2.8 Tamron
price paid:
positive:Zoom range
Sharpnes stopped down and with good light
negative:Focus is slow
Misses focuspoint often
In the range that you use the most min 5.6 is required for good sharpness
Low contrast compared to my Tamron.
comment:When light conditions are good a good walk-around lens.
But you need to stop down for sharpness and that means a big dept of field.
