Summary: I spent quite a bit of time researching what sort of lens would give me the very best value as a budget but sharp, high quality walk around lens for my new canon 70D, and this lens just kept coming up. Side to side comparisons between this lens and the far more expensive Canon EF 24-70 f2.8L lens were very, very comparable, and in fact in some cases the tamron even bested the L series super lens from canon.
Summary: This is my go to lens when working events, out side of my portrait lens. This have enough focal length to cover most of the area shots and group shots. You will still need to bring a longer lens on most events as the 75 doesn't cut it. With the 2.8 aperture is wide enough for most situations, I still need my 50 1.4 for some tasks. The images quality is wonderful and I have no complaints I don't want to say this is L glass level but I haven't seen a reason it couldn't be.
Great quality Lens! Great for lens for DSLR video! Great value the money!!

Summary: This is a great Lens, great picture quality, it gets sharper when closed a touch! Works perfectly on my GH2 with a nIkon adapter.. Great for video. It is not parafocal.. You have to refocus when you zoom in or out. The af-s version is better for autofocus focus on my d5200.
Summary: I just wanted a good quality lens for general purpose. The most important things were the maximum aperture and the zoom range. I have had another Tamron ens, so I trusted in this brand. I love this lens, I've got what I wanted. I'm so happy with this lens.
Summary: What a wonderful lens. This has become my go-to walk around lens. I, like many others, was debating between this and the canon 24-70L. Clearly I bought this, and I'm not disappointed by the cost to quality ratio. Would I prefer a 24-70L? Absolutely!! However, is that lens worth an extra $1000 to me? Absolutely not!! This is a wonderful lens in its own right, able to create fantastic photos that are crisp and vibrant.
