Pick up a 50 f1.7 and play with that and the 28-75 for awhile.

I just received the KM 28-75 2.8, and while I love everything about it, especially its wide constant aperture, it is not clearly blowing away the Tamron 28-300. Color rendition is very similar, and the Tamron is only marginally less sharp, mostly the shots are indistinguishable. The Tamron will probably remain on my camera most of the time. My next purchase is the Sigma 10-20. My fried just got one. Sems awesome.

Guess which shot was taken with each lens. Here is number 1

I find them close in outdoor shots.... Have you done any indoor comparisons?

I have been following you recommendation of not shooting wider than 4.5 on the Tamron and it does seem sharper.

So far, I have not had much of a chance to test it. Naturally, it has an advantage at no flash indoor shotsbecause of the 2.8 aperture. And it seems quite sharp even at the widest settings. Let me compare some more this weekend. I like the lens a LOT! But at the same time I am glad that the Tamron compares quite well in outdoor lighting. Because if there was a major clearcut difference, I would probably never touch the Tamron again and lug several lenses around. This way, however, I am not afraid to go on an outdoor shooting trip with just the KM5D and the Tamron 28-300 around my neck without feeling I compromise. But the KM 28-75 f2.8 is going to be great for some of the shooting I do. Like on this page: http://euromaninla.zoto.com/gallerie...andportraits/3.

I am looking forward to play with it some more this weekend.

Here are two comparison shots in bright sunlight, just shot in P mode. Not too exciting of a subject, but again very similar color rendition and sharpness. While I can't post full sized images, I will follow these up with crops.

Again, take your guess on which is which.
