Tamron 24-135MM F/3.5-5.6 AD Aspherical (IF) Macro

24135mm_1_
Review Date: Mar 3, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $400.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Great range on a DSLR. Sharp and contrasty with good control of CA. Zoom lock.
Cons:
Quality control. The first one I purchased was soft and had chips on the edges of the glass. (The second one was perfect.) AF motor is not very fast and makes noise that may bother some.

This is a great lens for its range on a DSLR. My copy is very sharp throughout the range, good control of CA and great contrast to match. Variation of quality is very strange and could take time to find a good one.

If Tamron can fix the quality control issues and get smoother and quieter AF motors they would sell a lot more glass.
