1750diII
Review Date: Mar 15, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Top notch image quality, super-fast focusing, F2.8 on full range, excellently priced, the tamron lens cap, zoom lock
Cons:
Noisy AF, no full-time manual focus override, lens extends when zoomed

I've had a lot of lenses in my time, but this is without doubt the best multi-purpose zoom I've ever had in my kit.
Yesterday I shot 500+ shots at a wedding, and almost exclusively used this lens - it's perfect for almost every occasion. Paired with my EF-S 55-250 IS, Sigma 30mm F1.4 and Canon 40D, I've got a very powerful kit now.

I would highly recommend this lens to anyone wanting a multi-purpose lens that is FAST and accurate for a reasonable price!
