Tamron AF 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Review
Sharpness at 16mm
The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Tamron AF 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens was attached to a Canon EOS 7D body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Self-timer mode was activated. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.
The full frame at 16mm
Both center and edge sharpness are acceptable between f/5.6 and f/11, with some softness evident wide open at f/3.5. At f/16 and f/22 sharpness is beginning to drop off a little due to diffraction.
