Hi Jim, I remember you saying that you decided to go ahead and buy this lens but I don't recall reading any comments from you. Did you like it? Was it within your expectations? I'm interested in knowing what your thoughts are. Cheers.

It's still in the box I received it in (and it did arrive OK). :-)

Sorry, but I haven't taken the opportunity to try it yet.

That's it. Chances are, a Minolta 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 is going to be better lens (based on user reviews I see), and it's also a brighter lens compared to this Tamron.

But, I haven't had a chance to try this Tamron yet to see how well it works, and it is easy on the wallet (some of us got one brand new in the box for $39.99 delivered, after Tulio started this thread about it). lol
