Re: With respect to sharpness, the Tamron 28-75 equals the Nikon 28-70

It's incredible that someone here said that the Tamron is only sharp at F8 . He must have a bad copy because my copy is extremely sharp from edge to edge by f4 onward and center sharp with slightly soft edges at 2.8 . I've got six lens including Sigma 105 macro and this lens is almost as sharp as the Sigma edge to edge from f4 onward at ANY focal lenght ! Only the extreme edges are slightly soft at 2.8 with excelent center sharpness.

I was thinking the same thing.

If they go through the past reviews & comments on the 28-75, the OP will see that most people say stuff like you did about the lens not that other guy.

See my plan (in my profile) for what I shoot with. See my gallery for images I find amusing.
