Sorry about the OT question, but I was wondering if anyone on the list could
suggest forums where I could ask questions about lenses? I'm getting a
little frustrated by the lack of sharpness in photos taken with a Sigma
28-80 f3.5-5.6 zoom, and I'm wondering just how much difference it will
make to my 35mm scans if the lenses were better.
Basically I just don't know how much visible improvement there would be
in 2700ppi scans from say a decent Pentax, Canon, Nikon or Contax lens.
I get significantly sharper results with my 50mm f1.7 lens, but it seems
to have colour aberration problems (red aberration).
I'm trying to avoid garbage-in-garbage out as much as possible in the scans.
Replies offlist would be appreciated. Thanks!
