Review Date: Sep 11, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: IQ, Apeture(2.8), Price,
Cons:
Bokeh, Lowlight AF performance, Slower AF compared to Ultrasonic lens

Great lens! I have changed from 18-55 kit lens, to 24-105 L lens, and finally to Tamron 17-50. Since I got this lens, my 50.8 lens eating dust!! Sharp wide open!! It can stand against prime lens , if just looking at the sharpness. But I do like the bokeh from the nifty-fifty. But it has better AF than 50.8, which for me it means, it's more reliable. Anyways, must try!!!
(Oh BTW, it took me 3 tries to pick the right lens! =(
