Yea the reason why I like the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 is because it's good performance at a low price. I'm aware that the lenses that come with the kit are crap, I'm going to sell them. I want to spend probably a max of around $1700 for now. The must haves are the body itself, a good lens, and a good flash. I'll buy another lens a little later.
