Tamron 24-135MM F/3.5-5.6 AD Aspherical (IF) Macro

24135mm_1_
Review Date: Apr 17, 2006 Recommend? | Price paid: $399.00

 
Pros: Range, sharpness, contrast, build quality, price
Cons:
A little slow AF, hunts in low light

I was juggling my decision between this lens, a Canon 24-70 f/2.8, and a Sigma 24-70 f/2.8. After looking at reviews numerous times, I settled for this lens mainly for its range... it is just perfect. The Canon was just too pricey and the Sigma had too many complaints. Although I would have loved the low light capabilities of the Sigma / Canon, the added weight was too much for a walk-around.

Cons:

I've been juggling between this, a Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, and Canon 24-70 f/2.8. After some pondering the range of this lens outweigh all the other aspects of the others. Pricewise this is a steal. Quality is superb. Sharpness is top-notch and contrast is definitely up there with the "L's".
