Tamron 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical [IF]

1750diII
Review Date: Jan 31, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very Sharp. Excellent price:performance ratio. Comes with hood (take note, Canon)
Cons:
Build not amazing (not terrible either). AF a bit slow and loud

I love this lens. At this price point, it really is a very good deal. No, it is not L, but it produces rock-solid images and is fast. I far prefer this to the canon 17-85 for superior image quality (plus, of course the wider aperture). If looking for a good-quality "budget" low-light zoom, this is the way to go.
