Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 XR Di Zoom AF

28-75mm
Review Date: Jun 18, 2005 Recommend? no | Price paid: $389.00 | Rating: 6 

Pros: Good built quality and the price is right.
Cons:
Very soft on my 350D unless stopped down past f4.

Iíve been drawn to this lens for sometime. Its great reviews and many of the images Iíve seen had me sold. After shooting some images inside and then reviewing them on the computer, I was shocked. Theyíre unacceptably soft (not just one and not only wide open either). I wonít keep this lens and I donít think Iíll venture another copy. What a disappointment for what should have been a great lens.

So the search goes on...Sigma 24-70mm DG perhaps.
