  • Excerpt: This was a replacement for the kit lens that came with my Nikon D500 and I have been very happy with it. Pictures come out exceptionally clear. It covers a useful range of focal lengths. The large diameter allows plenty of light in.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good in low light, Strong Construction, Versatile
  • Cons: Heavy

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: The Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 is a great lens. The build quality is good, fast autofocus, sharp and great color. The only things I could find that I didn't like was the focus ring turns during autofocus and the autofocus motor makes noise. Its not very loud but in a quiet environment it can be noticeable.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

  • Summary: On my new Pentax K5-IIs, this is very good do-it-all lens. Landscapes, portraits, street, interior (less so than wider angle lenses), except for birding, wildlife. I am thinking of getting one for my D7000 ti replace my workhorse but worn out 16-85mm.
