By the way, another quick question,

How much of an upgrade it is from the 18-55 canon kit? (500D kit).

It's quite a lot sharper and also being f2.8 you can get faster shutter speeds if using f2.8 is OK (not always good for groups as you need a wider depth of field). What it doesn't have is IS so it's not clear cut.

I would generally rather use the Tamron for the quality and the ability to have f2.8 over the kit lens.
Any problems with a post or thread please use the report button at the bottom left of the post and the team will help sort it out.

Have fun everyone!
