| p.1 #1 · Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 or Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS? |
hey guys. i've been out of the dSLR game for a long time. I've been using a variety of P&S cameras for at least 5 years. Today got a T4i Rebel so I can have some dSLR fun again (back then I had a 20D and assortment of L lenses).
even though I sold my dSLR and all the gear way back then (on here), my wife insisted on keeping her film Elan 7N camera and we kept the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens we had on it then.
now the T4i came with a Canon 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 IS lens.
my instinct is to stick to using the 28-75 as I prefer that range, and I definitely prefer the f/2.8 depth of field, but as far as home photographs and low-light portraits, would the f/2.8 and better optics of the Tamron be a better idea or the IS of the Canon?
back in my day the kit 18-55mm was a pretty subpar lens. the glass on this looks subpar still, specially compared to the much bigger glass of the Tamron. but this lens is at least 4-5 years newer than the Tamron.
what do you think?
