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

1750diII
Review Date: Aug 29, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Super sharp, quick focusing, light but well constructed
Cons:
Color not quite as saturated as I'd like but quickly remedied in PS.

This is a great lens. I'd never bought non-Canon glass before but now that the door is open I will not hesitate to so do again. Great as a walk-around or travel lens because it is relatively light but takes beautiful photos. And at 1/3 the price of Canon's 17-55 2.8!! (Who really *needs* IS in a wide angle lens anyway?)

 
Canon EF 20-35mm f/2.8L

Review Date: Aug 28, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp at wide apertures, beautiful color
Cons:

A great lens at a great price. Built like a tank. Better color than my Tamron 17-50/2.8 (though less useful because of focal range). Be careful that the copy you buy has fully functioning autofocus -- the first one I bought did not.
