Lens other than Tamron 17-50...
Apr 14, 2013

Ok...

Finally decided to upgrade from my 18-55 IS lens a couple of weeks ago. Read so much information online and settled on the Tamron 17-50 2.8 VC.

I don't know whether it was just my copy or not, but this lens was so soft at 2.8. It only really started to sharpen up at 5.6 onwards. And even then, it wasn't anything spectacular.

I even sent the Tamron in for servicing but it has come back no better at all.

I've noticed that I am still eligible for a refund on Amazon, so I am just looking for some advice on what other lens you could recommend?

My budget is up to about £300-£400.

Thanks.
