I love my 18-135mm, thinking of selling my 17-50 f2.8!
Jul 8, 2013

We took my daughter to the Bluebell railway this weekend for her 3rd birthday (where does the time go!) and took my 18-135 and Tamron 17-50 lens. My keeper rate off the 18-135 was much better and much sharper than the Tamron, even in low light conditions.

I'm thinking of selling my Tamron, sticking with the 18-135 and getting a 50mm f1.8 (or f1.7) ready for when we have our second child (September!) in the hospital.

Here is why I love my 18-135:

Enjoying her presents!

Got to love old steamers

Is that a sensible thing to do? I don't really use my Tamron as much as I used to and prefer the non rotating end, the silent AF motors and extra length.
