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

1750diII
Review Date: Sep 19, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Image quality, sharpness, focus
Cons:
a bit slow focusing at night, build quality

I have been using this lens since 2007 and I am still happy with the photos. The color, the sharpness, the focus and I love the fact that it has 2.8 aperture.

I use it on most of my commercial shoots and event shoots, as well as 90% of my studio photos.

The only problems I have had with it is that the rubber grip of the zoom came loose two years ago, but I fixed it with superglue (it might have been because of too much moisture, I was camping on the sea shore for some 10 days at the time).

Overall, it is a very good lens for its price, I highly recommend it!

All the best and happy shooting,
Sandra

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

Pros: Sharpness, solid build, IS works very well
Cons:
quite heavy and pricey. Very big especially with hood on

It is probably one of the best pro lenses out there. It is heavy but also perfectly sharp and the IS works very well.
I have to say it looks kinda scary with the hood on, but luckily you don't have to get so close to the subject with such a lens.
I strongly recommend it to those photographers who earn their living out of taking photos.

Cheers!
