Review Date: Apr 14, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $430.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Lightweight, sharp, good color, useable zoom range
Cons:
soft at 17mm F2,8....

Like this lens because of zoom range and colors that are close to Canon's colors.Can compare with Sigma 17-70."Tam" is sharper and colors are warmer.A good company to Canon's lenses.
