| p.1 #1 · Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 vs. Tamron SP AF 17-50mm |
I am looking for a shorter and faster lens to add to my sparse--one--collection of lenses (Canon 70-300L). The 70-300L has been great but I feel like I am missing out on some landscape shots as I learn this new hobby. My budget is tight after purchasing the Canon lens (and a tripod, ballhead, bag, filters,...).
Any opinions on the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM DSLR lens vs. Tamron SP AF 17-50 mm f/2.8 XR Di II VC LD Aspherical IF lens? with some digging, I can get the Sigma for just under $585, and the Tamron for $400. I realize that the Canon gets the best reviews but the price is beyond my current budget.
I am aware that the Tamron has some AF issues that some people have had corrected when sent back to Tamron (or seller). Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
