hey!
First of all I'm sorry for my english. Please ignore my mistakes.


So, I'm new in the DSLR sector and I took a lot of time to think about wich lenses I should use. I didn't want the kit lens, because I already knew that it would not satisfy me. I first wanted to buy the EF 24mm but after reading plenty of reviews especially on this page I changed my decision. I decided to buy the Tamron 17-35mm.
I liked the lens as soon as I opened the box, then I took some pictures and my satisfaction was gone immediately...

.."maybe" I first thought "I expected too much", but today I compared it to my cousins 18-55mm EF-S kit and I realised that even his lens was sharper at all apertures and all equal focal length.

I was aware of the fact that there could be quality control problems, but never took this seriously... I send this lens back within my 14day warranty to get my money back. Now I have to decide wether I try another tamron 17-35mm or I spend my money on something different...damn I'm so upset about it

I will update my review if I get a new and hopefuly better one
