comment Using Rokinon 14mm or Tamaron 17-50mm as a general purpose lens (APS-C)?
If you need a wider angle than 17mm and that extra stop of light coming in, then you yourself have answered :)

+1 to not getting an ultra wide full frame lens to use in a cropped sensor body. Those lenses are hard to make, so you are getting all the distortions and heft of an extremely wide angle to just get a not-so-wide angle.

At the extremes for sure it will be worse, in the sweet spot (usually mid-range, stopped down a little bit) it might be close or even better than the cheap prime lens.

comment Does cloudy, low-contrast light produce the best results for photos of fall foliage?
there's no such thing as "convert from raw to jpeg without adjustments" (even the default settings of any given program have built-in assumptions about how to interpret the raw data) ;-) maybe it's my monitor, I'm using the sRGB profile but it's not calibrated...

comment SLR cameras for a beginners?
@AJHenderson Well, if you constraint yourself for no economic or practical reason whatsoever; I am really glad for you, you must be some kind of Zen guru. But that does not apply to most people I know (including myself): if it's free, we'll keep snapping without thinking until we get bored, run out of battery or space in the memory card, whatever happens first.
