Tamron 28-75MM F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)

2875mm
Review Date: Dec 10, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very sharp, speed, PRICE
Cons:
Slow AF, focus haunt, vignette on full frame, lens creep after some years

This was my very first lense that I bought for my EOS 5D. It has almost L quality sharpness at very low price. The sharpness is good even on big aperture.

I bought my piece secondhand so the zoom ring had loosened in use and it had terrible lens creep. Fortunately the lens has a lock so this is not a big issue.

The only big flaw this lense has is the AF. It works well in bright conditions but even at dim lighting it starts to haunt a lot. In darkness it doesn't work of course.

This lens is not really designed for full frame and you can see it in some vignetting on the corners of the photo. It can be fixed manually but it gets very frustrating after some time.

Overall this objective is superb in its price range and I would recommend it to every hobbyist. My dad has this same objective and my girlfriend has the 17-50mm version and they're both extremely satisfied with their purchase.
