LOVE

  • Excerpt: I have written a review before but I just wanted to chime in again because I've had the lens almost 2 years now. I still love it! THE ONLY thing I don't like is that when I upgrade to FF I wont be able to use it. I have found it's sweet spot (sharpest point) for me is with an aprature of f 3.2 although I have got some great shots at 2.8 as well. I'll share couple photos. The lens creep doesn't bother me as it's not super long and therefor doesn't drop too hard.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus

Good general purpose lens

  • Excerpt: I've had this lens for about three weeks. I'm using it on a Canon 70D camera body. I have had the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 lens for nearly a year and I recently replaced it with this lens because the reviews that I read say that the image quality is higher on the Canon lens than the Sigma. I'd have to agree that this lens is better than the Sigma, although not by a lot. It is sharper on the edges and corners of the frame, but about the same in the frame center.

  • Excerpt: I also have a similar Tamron but do find I get fewer out of focus shots with the Canon. Great for those low light, action shots that I am taking.

upgrade w/o breaking the bank

  • Excerpt: being just a hobbiest I am going from a standard lens that was included with my Canon RebelT3i to this lens. I wanted to upgrade my gear w/o maxing my CC. I was surprised by the size and weight but still easy to work with. I was looking for better sharpness and DOF for smaller space shooting areas--this lens is perfect!!

Bought mostly for the F/2.8

  • Excerpt: I bought this for a wedding. I didn't want to have to change lens and it did great for what I needed. I am happy with it for the versatility. It did not wow me by any means like some of the prime 50mm lens I have shot but I needed something so that I would not miss the shot and this one was pretty much a guarantee to cover the focal range I needed.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: I purchased this Lense for my Canon 60 D. I use this Lense for video. It has a wonderful look. The 2.8 aperature is continuous. I have enjoyed the Lense.
