What do you mean by "quality"? If all you're trying to achieve with your photography is to get a (so called) technically "proficient" shot ie one that is "sharp" then all I can say is that there's more to an image than sharpness and sharpness is something that, no matter how good a lens you have, is never going to be achieved early morning or late evening in the UK other than in full summer light.Thanks. But I do see better quality from the few early morning shots taken with the Sigma 60mm than the 12-60 zoom. But perhaps the lesson there is to use primes for those lower light locations.
Sorry, and not to be critical of Levster's examples but I really don't know/understand what you would class as "crispness". "Crispness" is to my mind not the same as "sharpness". You can make an image "crisp" by over-sharpening and TBH the boy in Levster's example looks soft to me whereas other than the pub, the other two look over-sharpened. If you want to see "true" sharpness click on this image and enlarge at flickr. You will never achieve that with a kit or budget lens, but as I say, who is going to enlarge an image to full res in this day and age?Thanks JensM. Yes, lack of crispness is also what I would describe with many of my images (and the opposite of what I see in Levster's examples).
