  • Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical IF SP AF

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Resolution for the price... amazing
    Field Curvature for landscape shots

    Very sharp, even wide open.... this could replace a prime if needed. Great for portraits at 50mm x 1.6, etc.

    The Field Curvature problem when attempting to focus on a 'flat' landscape shot.... you might notice blurring at the edges.... your only recourse is to stop down unless you have already!

    But other than that.... best resolution in a zoom I've seen under $500
