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

2875mm
Review Date: Sep 14, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: everything
Cons:
not L

very good performance at 28mm @ f2.8. steal of a price for the quality it offers. focus ring moves the opposite way, but then that doesn't really bother me.

the only thing is that even though the is built very good, however i am more used to the canon feel, but this is me being picky, comparing this with canon L glass in build quality. Optically this is very good for me.


prior to buying this i was looking for 24-70L, now i am not. but maybe that is just me and others might disagree with me.
definately a keeper.


 
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Review Date: Sep 14, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: everything, good low light performance, very sharp @ 1.8, good cheap price hence the 9 rating in the build
Cons:
build, but then for what i bought i shouldn't be expecting anything else either.

I tried in portrait photography [studio] mostly on my 300D, it performed very well and since i bought it second hand, i think i couldn't be more pleased at the price.

very sharp, i didn't seem to notice any problems @1.8 and i am very glad with my copy. an absolute keeper especially if you are on a budget.
