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

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Fast focus, sharp, cheap, sharp, looks quite cool , sharp and not as heavy as the real one.. and ehh.. did I mention sharp?
    So far none found

    Oh yes: I finally got one! It's the ultimate solution for me since the Nikon 17-55 is out of my league -> at least according to my wife ;) BTW: I got the 'made in Japan'-version.

    Tack-sharp at f2.8/17 mm and very reasonable at f2.8/50 mm - from f4.0 and up it's unbeatable at 50 mm! Now that might be the ($100-) difference between this lens and the Nikon f2.8/17-55.

    From this moment it's glued to my D200!! I recommend it to any photographer (both pro and amateur) with the need of a fast standard zoom.
