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

1750diII
Review Date: Nov 23, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $395.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Relative to its price, everything positive: sharp, fast w/ constant 2.8, minimum distortion, flare and artifacts. Relatively small and light. Build quality and AF noise could be better, but then I'd expect to pay more for it, too.
Cons:
none

Review Date: Apr 12, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $280.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: small, light, wonderful focal length and fit on 1.6x, close minimum focus, generally super image quality.
Cons:
none

my 3rd go-around with this lens. each copy has been excellent. maybe i've learned my lesson and will hold on to this one? interesting side note: my first copy was (i swear) a metal case. the last two have very much been plastic. maybe someone else can verify that this lens was produced at some time past with a metal case?

not as sharp as my 50/1.

I use this lens in the house most times. Wide enough and fast enough and it won't break the bank (like 1.4 might)!
