The wife surpised me good today ... I go into my office and find a wrapped box w/a bow ..... As I open it I find a lowepro camera bag stuffed with aTamron SP AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)... Im still smiling Focus is about the same speed as the kit but the sharpness .. wow .. razor ... Not quite an "L" but it's much better then non "L" canon in build... Running out to start playing w/it now

I've been using that lens for some time now. It's my walk-around lens and I'm very pleased with it. Enjoy it and you'd better take care of that woman!

I was deciding between the tamron 28-75 and the canon 28-135 IS. I bought the tamron because of the f2.8 through the entire range. It is my walk around lense also. I have read really good reviews about it. I look foward to seeing some pictures.

Well it is razor sharp! Great color rendition and saturation... C/A minimal ... Even wide open its incredibly sharp.... In regard to build quality and autofocus it isnt an "L" glass but optically compared to my HEAVY and BIG 28-70 L ... its there ... dollar for dollar I may ebay the Canon 28-70 2.8 in favor of credit towards a longer USM L lens and keep this one for everyday use... Had no trouble tracking pigeons taking off and landin so autofocus isnt slow .. just not as snappy as HSM/USM.

mrkryz

Have you any distant shots you could post using this lense. ie. Landscapes with some decent distant objects that you can zoom into.

I'm interested in thisbecause my kit lense 18-55mm seems not to resolve distant image detail too well. It's not unusable but not as good as I would like.

If this Tamron is much better I may well invest in one soon.

Thanks in advance.

Mart.
