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

1750diII
Review Date: Nov 27, 2008 Recommend? | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: Fast & cheap for constant f2.8
Cons:
Quality control is a Joke! Tested 4 copies and all bad


Went and bought this lens 2 months ago and gone thru 4 copies. (grrr)

1st copy: Front focus and deep scratch on metal mount
2nd copy: There's a black object (1mm long) inside lens (back)
3rd copy: Dust inside lens (front)
4th copy: Lens front focus badly

All prospect buyers are advised to check their lens thouroughly and always buy from local shop so you can exhange lens easily

Believe it or not, I went and buy this lens months ago and went thru 4 copies and still no good. At the end I just asked for a refund. and the worst thing is that this is "Made in Japan". The next batch would be from China.
I really wish I can get a good copy with this lens.

1st copy: Lens front focus and deep scratch at the metal mount.
2nd copy: A big debris inside lens (back)
3rd copy: Dust inside lens (front)
4th copy: Lens front focus badly

I seriously ask for prospect buyers to check their lens thoroughly and buy from a local shop so you can exchange easily
