Tamron 28-75MM F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)

2875mm
Review Date: Aug 23, 2005 Recommend? | Price paid: $370.00

 
Pros: After received back from Tamron US recalibration, the problems solved.
Cons:

First tests after recalibration showed very good sharpness even fully open. Maybe only slightly worse on the "tele" end then in the wide. My current rating will be 8...

 
Tamron 28-75MM F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)

Review Date: Apr 16, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $370.00 | Rating: 1 

 
Pros: None for the piece I get from Adorama
Cons:
Significantly softer then the cheapest Canon kit lens

Based on the excelent reviews across the net I decided for that lens. Unfortunately the Qality Control of Tamron clearly failed. The pictures in all apertures are significantly worse then from the $60 Canon kit lens. Hardly usable for the speed above F16. Unfortunately I bought it in during my brothers visit of US (using him as "messenger" - I'm living at the middle of Europe - Prague) so the return/fix process will be more complicated, if possible.
European Tamron headqurter, where I send the mail asking fix is not answering. Any hint? Please mail me to pva(at)centrum(dot)cz
