Agreed. The Tamron is an excellent option. However, the longer focal length increases the working distance and the lens is bigger and heavier. For my purposes, 55mm was a better choice. It all depends upon what you want to do.

At the end of the day, all the lenses mentioned in this thread will give good results.

It's not how many pixels you have... but how you use them.

Couldn't agree more - yes the Tamron is heavy, and it also needs a good lens hood - I use an old metal one for a Nikkor 85, which works a treat.
