| p.1 #18 · Tamron 17-50 to Canon 15-85? |
I've had the Tamron 17-50mm and Canon's 15-85mm. I didn't like the 15-85mm. Ugliest lens Canon has ever made, horrible barrel distortion, soft at 85mm, and mine creeped badly. Usually I get slammed when I share that as there's people on this board that think that's the lens Jesus is going to have attached to his walk around camera when he returns to smote the earth (personally I think he'll pony up for full frame...). I wound up with Sigma's 17-70mm OS, and I'm happy with it. Bonus with the sigma is it's relatively nice macro ability. I did like the Tamron, but I have lens ADD and sold it to try something else...oh yeah, Sigma's 30mm 1.4. Which I sold to go to the 17-70mm.
Fair enough. You're entitled to your opinion and others can disagree, but you shouldn't get flamed for your honest comments. Like I said I've never owned the 15-85, my comments were in regards to the OP's initial take on what he wanted and didn't want, mostly in regards to not needing a fast aperture and wanting the bigger focal range.
