Excerpt: I purchased one 3 or 4 years ago. While visiting my daughter whom I had a couple years age give my old D200 after I purchased a new D800. I gave her my old Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 lens. And order myself a second one.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I needed a new lens to go on my D810. I use this to compliment my 70-200mm. Eventually I'll buy a Nikon but for the time being this is OK. Not a bad lens for the price. I love the lock to eliminate crawl.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Excerpt: A few shoots for myself and others made me realize that I would really like to have a constant aperture standard zoom for my Nikon. Then I started shopping for lenses in this range... Eesh. Did I mention that I have kids and a mortgage? I noticed an anomaly. The Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8. At a fraction of the others this must be a typo, made of styrofoam or something.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I bought this lens for my A7 using the LEA4 , the picture are amazing, great as walk around lens and street photography. My friend has 24-70 version of this lens and we compare the picture quality of both lens and both does an amazing pictures. For more than half a price of 24-70, this lens is a keeper.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: love this lens... takes exceptional photo.. Great results for the money. Highly recommend it. I have been doing photography for over twenty years. I have tested and used many different lens. This is the second one I have owned... I wore the other one out... This will make a great addition to anyone's photo bag and will be your "go to" lens for wedding and low light portraits..
Excerpt: I'm an amateur photographer who was looking to upgrade my lenses. I don't have a ton of cash, so this lens was pretty attractive in that sense. I was impressed with how quiet the focus is even though it's not a "whisper drive". To the point that I sometimes depress the focus again just to make sure it's engaging. It produces some incredibly sharp images for its price point.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
You will love this lens- I'm pairing this with an a77

Summary: First of all, this lens is fantastic. There are a few reasons why, and I will go over them, but if you are looking for a great walk around lens that is nice and fast, look no further. This lens is heavy, built well, and produces wonderful images.
