Excellent value and very compact

  • Excerpt: I am mainly a prime shooter but got this lens because a fast zoom can be useful in situations where you cannot switch lenses. Prior to buying this I rented both a Tamron 24-70 and Tamron 28-75. My plan was to buy the 24-70 but as the 28-75 was a cheap rental I decided to try it too.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Sharp, Value
  • Cons: Flare, Slowish focus

Decent lens for the money

  • Excerpt: Not bad, not amazing. Don't expect that just because it's a 2.8 lens, it's going to be amazing. Image quality on par with kit lens with advantage of low f stop. Zoom is kind of stiff, not smooth.

Pleasantly Surprised

  • Excerpt: I found this used in a local photog shop in Bismarck at half new. I was lured by the 2.8 across all focal lengths. I am very pleased with this lens in the test shots I've taken so far. The autofocus is a little noisy and sounds kind of weird, but hey, it works fine.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Sharp, contrasty, medium-speed AF. Overall, great for the price

Dave, Amazon

  • Summary: I used this lens on a D40, D90 and D4. Nice and sharp after f/4, nice contrast and colors. Colors are more on the warm end-- takes really nice looking photos of metallic and "natural" colors like brown, green, etc. It isn't marketed as a fast/sports focusing lens, and..it isn't.

  • Excerpt: I particularly liked how fast this lens is. W/ a fixed speed across it's focal length, it makes for easier decisions on the fly.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged
