I may up the rating once I get the lens back from Tamron. I just received it today and took some shots at f2.8, f4, and f5.6. All of the 2.8 shots were out of focus (not soft, but out of focus). They almost looked like you were shooting through cheesecloth. Shots of the same subject at f4 were much better and outstanding at f5.6. The shots that were in focus are spectacular. I'm confident that once I get the lens back from Tamron I'll be able to give a much higher rating. But since it had to go to the shop that's all I can do for now....
