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

2875mm
Review Date: Oct 17, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp, nice contrast and colors, and light.
Cons:
Focusing could be a bit faster and could be internal.

Great little zoom lens from Tamron with constant f2.8 thoughout the zoom range. I love the shots I have been getting with this lens and I have to say once it is on the camera it is hard to find a reason to take off. Totally recommended.

Review Date: Oct 17, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,800.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Awesome color and contrast. Sharp at f2.8 and almost instand focusing.
Cons:
Price, weight.

In a matter of two weeks I went from the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 (virtually fell apart mechanically in a matter of a hour) to the Canon 70-200 f4L (excellent but a bit too slow for how I shot) to the Canon 70-200 f2.8L IS. Could not be happier.

Outstanding image quality with awesome contrast and colors. Focusing is bang on a very very fast. The best zoom lens I have owned to date. Very sharp throughout the zoom range at f2.8. Love the IS as it gives me the ability to handhold indoor photos at 1/60sec without the need for a monopod/tripod.

Just have to get use to the idea of people coming and asking questions when I am out shooting with this lens.
