Finally :) It's been quite a while that I announced a new DX review, here... way too long actually.

Let's re-start the DX section with the Tamron 35 VC, which in terms of bokeh (one of its weaknesses on FX) looks much better on DX:

More DX reviews to come... and I promise you don't have to wait for the next one that long again ;)

  Strange the improvement in terms of onion bokeh.........

 

 

     but man does it do worse on bokeh fringing.......is it me or is it unacceptable?

I can only assume that the onion rings get worse with distance from the image center. On DX, the section where we look at background highlights is much closer to the center than on FX.

Regarding bokeh fringing: there shouldn't be any noticeable difference, at least not in the review shots... because: I simply reused the FX ones ;)

 Ok for the onion ring bokeh explanation.

 

 "Not OK" for the bokeh fringing examples........"the FX review shot is a different shot from the DX" !!...... Queen image (and the other one)...........either that or you have been doodling over them with a purple and green felt tip! 

 

   Also I can't find the FX review in the Nikon FX section.

Ah, ok, we're talking about different shots, then. I thought you were referring to the ruler shots in the Bokeh fringing section.

The Bokeh shots are of course done with each camera.

 Also I can't find the FX review in the Nikon FX section.


Sorry, the "All reviews" page and the pages for individual sections are out of sync. The overview page of all reviews once became that big that it couldn't be edited anymore. I'll update the overview page later tonight.

Meanwhile, just go to the page listing all Nikon FX reviews. Or see the corresponding thread here in the forum.
