cold dead fingers!

You can have my Tamron 17-50 when you pry it out of my cold dead fingers. I will never sell it.

I use it on a 30D and a T2i. I think I have a very good copy of this lens (made in China, BTW) or maybe they are all really good. Anyway, I find that it is very good on the T2i, but you have to be more careful to keep the camera steady or use a faster shutter speed than with 8 MP. That is also true with all my lenses, including the 70-200 f/4 L IS.

For absolute maximum image quality try it at 35mm and 5.6. Between 24-35 mm and f/4 to f/5.6 is the peak sweetness of this lens. Compare that to a host of other lenses and I think you will see why it is so good and up to the task of 18 MP.
