well after taking about 400 pictures in the last 48h and also some more bunny shots...

...I know they are stupid, but hey they provide nice results and are a good lesson to learn how to keep the lighting constant between several shots. (More or less, my exposure was mostly 0.1 stop off between shots)

Now what did I actually compare and does it make sense todo this?

  • 1 x Nikon 17-55mm F/2.8, for 1200$
  • 1 x Nikon 50mm F/1.8, for 110$
  • 1 x Tokina 19-35mm F/3.5 - F/4.5 for 149$
The result of the test should show how much better the Nikon 17-55 is wide open and stopped down compared to the other lenses.
One thing is sure the build quality and focus speed is far superior to the other lenses, but how much better is it optical? It is also very convenient to have one lens instead of two.

The next post is about the 17-55 F/2.8 vs the 50mm F/1.8 and the post after wards compares the 17-55 F/2.8 against the Tokina at 19mm and 35mm

...let the games begin...
