@Dj R@ - Any chance you could shoot something like a ring at MFD? That'd help give an idea for us wedding folks how it does way up close.

Also, I noticed that most of your shots are at higher shutter speed. What happens when you try something silly like 1/20 or 1/10s? Does it stay sharp 1:1 on the D850 with the VC on?


WILL DO
I dimmed the lights last night at 10pm and shot a 1/10 with vc on. and it looked great on the d850
turned off vc, didn't look too good

love all the commentary, good points everyone.
it's a good question, 50 1.8g at $150 vs. this tamron $399
VC is not necessary for everyone, but it will come in handy for some.

****wedding shooters would like VC. poor light during cocktail hour? getting ready shots, for sure. and church, for sure!
there is no competition. this is a great all around FL on FF. it has VC, so in the situations above, if you don't want a 2.8 zoom, and you prefer prime, this would be a viable option.

think of it this way, for folks who don't understand 45mm.
24-70 is a general zoom for weddings, take two steps forward or backwards, and you can accomplish all of it with a 45mm.
45mm is RIGHT IN BETWEEN 24 and 70

also, the 50 1.8g will not be as sharp on a d850
I feel like this tamron is closer to a sigma art, with regard to sharpness
of course, sharpness isn't everything.
