Sorry for the vague question TCav. Jim C commented he kept the short lens so he did not run into problems with not being able to back away far enough to frame shots of groups. My thought was when looking at the shorter lenses should I try to stick with the models with wider angles?

I did look at the Tamron you linked and will be adding one to my inventory

There aren't a lot of lenses that are better. It's not a portrait lens, and it's not a mcro lens. But it's great for landscapes/seascapes/cityscapes and for indoors with or without flash..
