Lens Glass for Wide angle.
In this tutorial Exercise, we are going to appreciate the glass quality of the lenses and understand how specific purpose lens are best suited to perform in that arena.
Image 1 is taken with Tamron Wide angle lens which automatically sets the f number to f/4.2 to make the image more sharper also along the edges, whereas Nikon 18-55, a kit lens produces a softer image with f/3.5.
Second minor difference is the frame difference, though very slight. its there.
Tamron gives a more wider appeal to the photo.
I hope you test the same and compare glass and compositions to better understand lens and their pros and cons.
