Excerpt: I was excited to get this lens after reading all the great reviews. It's built well and does a great job in low light. I used it for a outdoor concert at night and was very pleased. I did have to boost the clearity in PP a little but it is pretty sharp.
Excerpt: I use this Tamron mostly for macro with extension tubes. It is a replacement lens because my original one was damaged. I have been satisfied with the results except I wish that it came with Vibration compensation.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I've had this lense for a few weeks now, and so far it has served it's purpose! The only two things that I have noticed that autofucus is not very quick in low light, and autofucus is also a little soft around the edges. Other than that great lense!
Excerpt: Sharpness doesnt exactly blow your hair back, but it opens up to f2.8 all the way across, which not something you typically see in this price point. I shoot on an APS-C camera, so being able to go that wide is great when I want to throw the background out of focus - not so easily done with a smaller...
Excerpt: I bought this as an upgrade to my 18-55 kit lens that came with my T1i. I planned on using as my everyday lens. The first thing I noticed about this is that it is much heavier than my Canon kit lens...probably a good thing (better quality), but taking a bit to get used to.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: I needed a lens for doing indoor photography at a work conference. The 2.8 worked nicely and I also used my external flash I was very pleased with the photos it took and the cost of the lens made it even better!
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I was lucky to pick up a used version of this lens for $280 for use with my Canon 5D Mark III (as a general walk around lens).I just couldn't see myself spending $[$] for the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II nor did I have the money for it.I agree with the other comments here on sharpness.
