Comparison of Sigma EX DG 24mm/1.8 versus Tamron 17-50mm/2.8 XR DiII

Today I got my new lense. A Tamron 17-50mm/2.8. This will probably replace (and augment) my Sigma 24mm/1.8. Though I liked the handy focal width and fastness of the Sigma, I often suspected it to produce quite unsharp and dull pictures. A quick comparison with a few shots at aperture 2.8 exposes the truth. The Tamron is the better lense in any way (except that it’s slightly slower, of course). It is much sharper, brilliant and produces less chromatic aberations and flares even wide open. Have a look!
