thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
after much research on this site, i got the tamron 28-75 this am.
very pleased with my decision. old lens was the kit 18-55 on the rebel xt.
tamron images look sharper, brighter. colors are more vivid.
i listened to what some posters were saying- like thinking about what focal length i do most of my shooting in. it was looking at my images and then deciding what i needed rather than running out willy nilly and just getting anything.
one last ?? is comparing the tamron to the kit lens one of those duh moments. didn't do any research on the kit lens that i have
this is me pondering purchase as salesguy snaps away
