Very sorry - repeated post. Strange things have been happening.

St Iletto-

I ended up returning the Tamron 18-250mm lens as I felt that there were too many compromises in lens quality. Perhaps it was the sample that I received, I really don't know. But returning the lens, in view of its $(US) 499.00 plus shipping cost seemed to be the prudent thing to do. It is a pleasingly small and light lens, that seemed to match the canon XTi rather well. However, in the final analysis, I just was not willing to risk $(US) 500.00+ on the lens.

I was also impressed by its weight and volume, it seemed perfect to carry around and have the sort of reach I was (initially) looking for.

Thanks for letting me know the price and for all your advice; you've been of enormous help to me. :- )
