I had the Tamron 17-50 2.8 for half an hour
Mar 13, 2012

I bought the Tamron lens (non VR version) a few days ago to replace my kit lens (18-105) on my D7000.

I took 25 shots just outside the shop in the parking lot and immediately returned the lens. ALL of the photos were seriously out of focus. I was so disappointed after reading so many good reviews on this lens.

Has anybody had any similar experience with this lens? Can it be a bad copy? I would like to upgrade the kit lens but at the moment I can't afford the Nikon 17-55 2.8.

It might be a problem with the camera but I guess Nikon would refuse repair if I told them it doesn't focus with a 3rd party lens.
