#13. "RE: D7K lens comparing and setting question."

Thanks to all for the suggestions,

i must be fair and honest in saying the only reason to look into the sigma or tamron 17-55 f2.8 lenses are due to the negative comments i have seen on the internet about the 18-105 kit lense.. i in all honesty am not a pro and neither am a pixel peeper, as long as the shots are good im happy, i wasnt convinced with the 18-105 lens at first either. so looked for the next alternative and found a used sigma 18-200 so i bought that and instantly noticed my photos looked better, but was also lacking in detail here and there.
the 18-105 lense was sitting on the shelf doing nothing. this was about 6 months ago.

few days ago out of curosity i took the 18-105 and tried some shots with it and was stunned to see it produce better shots. so i did some more testing and the pics were more clearear than the 18-200 sigma.
i then borrowed my friends 24-120 nikkor and did the same and the 18-105 still was the better out of the lot. so that really confused me as to why this was happening. mind you as i mentioned before this is just an average joes interpretaion of the outcome of IQ, you guys might see it differently.
anyway this is why i was wonderign wether the camera had some settings i wasnt aware of foreach individual lense to make it perform at its best...

cheers
