Be careful, it IS that sharp !
April 28, 2011
If you want an excellent sharp lens for your camera, zoom at that focal length, look no further. I've purchased this lens in November 2010 as I needed the constant aperture, after much debate and looking around, I decided to purchase the Tamron 17-50mm XR DI-II f2.8 none VC, and I have NOT regret my purchase.
The f/2.8 aperture provide me with the DOF that I'm looking for, and the low light capability that I was looking for.
Have I mentioned that it was sharp ? It is extremelly sharp, don't worry about not having VC (image stabilization), not much required at that focal length, my own opinion.
One more thing, the useful hood is included, and you get 6 years warranty from Tamron !
