Assuming both lenses are working as designed, the 17-40 is not sharper than the 17-55, especially on the long end of the zoom.

Hard to tell on this ipad, looks like the exposure is off. L glass is suppose to be of the best quality so it could be you have been accustomed to the style of shooting and shots you where getting with your 17-40.

It's hard to really tell because there's an assload of compression artifacts. Still doesn't look that bad.

Those pictures look absolutely terrible. It's just a sea of noise and softness. It's clear your cameras beyond broken and that you should just give it a viking funeral at this point.

VALHALLA FOR YOU
post #24557 of 29467
ur lens is sharp...all i see is that your images are not processed yet and the colors are neutral...like any other RAW image....just process the pic and it will look better.

what raw viewer/converter are you using? Do you have the lens correction and the color calibration profile set right?

i use LightRoom5, and depending on the shot i'll use the built in lens correction tools.

If you don't do extensive post-processing, isn't it better to use jpeg? I know jpeg is very lossy, but I've heard that it's very easy to mess your photos up more than jpeg does.

What you achieve with JPEG you can achieve with RAW and more. There's no downsides besides the files being larger and you having to process them. With how idiot proof programs are now like Lightroom where you can spam auto everything while batch processing and get the same result there's no reason not to use it unless what you're shooting absolutely demands JPEG.
