Hey everyone, I had asked some questions here as to whether there was a comparison to the 70-300 G and a 75-300 non-G. After watching the tumbleweed fly past I realised that there wasn't one (or wasn't one pointed out to me!) so I decided to do one of my own to help others out.
I'm in the market to buy a zoom lens for my A200 and with it being my first 'proper' lens purchase, I wanted to be 100% sure that I was spending the right money in the right places.
Please note, I am no where near a professional photographer and am merely a 'newbie' looking to get serious about photography. The following pictures are to be used as a guideline purpose only yadda yadda yadda.
So onto the review....
I went to a Jessops store in London and asked to try these lenses out. Let me point out here that these guys were EXTREMELY friendly and couldn't have been more helpful if I had asked them to be! I told them that I was going on Safari and that I was looking for a zoom lens of either the 70-300G or the 75-300. Here is a picture taken at 70mm with the G lens:And the same picture taken again at 75mm with the Non-G lens:
Already we can see that the G lens has a much better contrast in the pictures on the wall as well being sharper in image.
I need a lens that is going to be sharp even at 300mm, so let's test the two lenses out at this range:70-300G at 300mm:and the 75-300 Non G at 300mm:
Again, we can see that the Non-G lens is lacking clarity in its pictures and is looking rather dull compared to the sharpness and colours given by the G lens...
