18-50 thru a dirty window..

I just have to show you this one. This shot was taken using ISO50 at the photo fair in Stockholm. It’s shot thru a dirty window with the 18-50.

I developed using SPP3

I think it’s quite impressive from a zoom to perform this good. It’s not as contrasty as a prime would be (due to window?), but sharpness is there! I was also amazed on how fast AF looked and how silent it worked. I will show some more pictures from this session later, also some shots taken with the 17-70 DC lens. Which I like too! :)

    Fine example of what the SD14 can do. Love the texture. Well lit. Don’t love the smudge/flare around her face, but you did say you were shooting through a dirty window…

    Agree.. The smudge isn’t very nice. :D A TAD hard to get rid of it using photoshop. hehe

    Selective saturation & contrast adjustment. Voila! ;-)

  4. Hi Carl … nice test … yes glass can lower contrast by quite a bit from what I know.
    Can you please tell me if the 18-50 was the MACRO version?
    How you compare it with 17-70?
    I would like to know what you think.

    Thank you.
