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

Review Date: Aug 18, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $420.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp, lightweight, came with hood
Cons:
Curved focal plane


I've been using the Tamron since April and has held up well as my daily walkaround lens. Image quality is excellent, AF motor is about as loud as my Canon 50mm f/1.8 II. (I started with the 50mm prime as my 1st lens.)

The curved focal plane of the lens is apparent from f/2.8-4 at 17mm. After discovering that quirk, I usually will stop down if I'm trying to get a deep subject in focus.
