Thanks for all your replies and feedback!

I ended up ordering the tamron 28-75.. I ordered it from amazon.. does anyone know if they are an authorized dealer of tamron ? Could not find that info on their website.

Amazon has a 30 day policy stated on their website.. so if I get a bad copy, I could return it and get the Nikon 85mm . I took the plunge because the flexibility of zoom in this range would be great for doing portraits and events when you dont have time to change lenses.

Now, I just need to get a 70-300 VR to complete my lens collection....................... for now atleast


Nikon 18-135
Nikon 50mm f1.8
Tamron 28-75 f2.8 (coming soon!!)
