Are you talking about the 17-35 F2.8-4 or the 17-50 2.8?

Ihave the 17-50 2.8 and have used this lens for indoor shots both with Flash and without. My big complaint is that it really "hunts" a lot when trying to focus in low light. Even with the F stop set to 2.8 priority. If you meant the 17-35 then you may still have the problem.



I really like the Tamron's but they are a little noisy and the one I have tends to have trouble finding the focus point. I also have the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 have had better results with it. The 28-75 has been one my favorite lenses.

Yes, I am speaking about the Tamron 17-35mm. I also have the 28-75 Tamron 2.8 and the Tamron 55-200. I want a wide angle for indoors and tight situations any suggestions would be appreciiated. I am sorry for not explaing clearly.

The Tamron 17-35 f/2.8-4 is quite a good lens: http://photo.net/equipment/tamron/17_35_Di/index4.html

So is the Sigma 17-35 f/2.8-4 EX which comes with the faster HSM autofocus - Not that this Sigma had two versions with a much improved newer DG (so be careful when you read review of the older non-DG version... which is entirely of a different construction)

Also, I believe there is a rebate, $10, on the tamron 17-35. Not much but it helps.
