Excerpt: This lens I purchased for portraits and weddings as I seem to be offered plenty of this work. I am a solid enthusiast getting close to full time pro level. As money can influence many choices in this field I feel this is a really good sensible purchase. It's pretty easy to drop big dollars on a lens in this category and I will say this lens is worth a look. Some may say it's heavy but it should be, it's built well. Focus is fast and sharp.
Excerpt: I bought this lens a couple years ago and haven't use it much but while browsing the 24-70 ranges, decided to shoot a few with my 23-75 Tamron. After this experiment, I expect to do a lot more with this lens as a walk-around on my D700.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I've had this lens since it was introduced. Have used it on Konica-Minolta 7D, Sony A700, and Sony A99V. It was excellent lens on both 7D and A700 but have noticed considerable back focus on A99 @ F2.8/75mm. It gets progressively sharper as F stop larger (4.0-8.0). At 8.0 lens is really sharp. To be fair this typical for most lenses. I did AF Micro Adj on A99V and that so far has seemed to fix front focusing.
Summary: I bought this lens because I needed an f/2.8 lens to photograph in low-light conditions. I have been using it since I received the lens about a month ago and it has become my all-around lens. The lens itself feels sturdy, but its not that heavy. So far I'm delighted with the lens --which, by the way, I got new for less than $400.00. That's cheap.
Excerpt: I've had this lens a few weeks now and it hasn't come off my Nikon D7100, I love it! Its been great for people photos and nature, just a great walk-around lens. The focus is fast, even in low light. The build quality and size also seem just right. Its also good for close up photography, got some great flower shots.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical IF SP AF review by titi_elsass
9 October 2014
Summary: This a review of my second Tamron 28-75mm. I use it on 5D MarkII. I've an old "made in Japan" sample. Due to the choices on 24-70mm, this lens is no more considered as really an alternative... Well it should! If the focal range beginning at 28mm doesn't bothered you, you can take a deep look at this lens. There could be sample variations (as many zoom, even with Canon L) but my 28-75mm: - Is very sharp across the range, even @f2.8/75mm.
Pros: Sharpness, Light, Useful range
Cons: nothing really - the autofocus is "old-school" but efficient
