  • Tamron 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 XR Aspherical IF Macro AF

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, lightweight

    Sharp! Useable even wide open in corners on full frame (D3). Tack sharp everywhere from 5.6.

    Good contrast. Less prone to flare than my 28mm prime.

    Tiny and lightweight. Substantially smaller than my Nikkor 28-200. And better optically.

    Negative: Won't replace a hammer on the construction site, but consider that it was designed to be light weight.

    This is a perfect all-around lens for full frame bodies.
