I just got the Tamron 28-75 lens last week. I haven't had a lot of oppurtunity to use it yet. (too much bad weather). Anyway, in reading the reviews on this lens before I bought it they all seemed very favorable. I also saw a lot of comments on getting "bad copies" of this lens. Is there a simple test I can do to check if my lens is a good or bad copy? What do I need to look for? I use it on my sony a300.

Thanks, Deb

Is it new or used?

If new I doubd't you have anything to worry about, if used then scratched lens coatings, dust inside lens, or maybe it's been dropped, ect.

If you really want to look for something "wrong" then you can shoot a front/rear focusing chart or dominos lined up on edge. Otherwise enjoy it.

I have the KM version of this lens and love it.

it's a brand new lens from b and h. so far it seems to be fine. I guess if there was a problem with it , it would be obvious. I'm probably just being paranoid. Thanks for the input. Deb
