Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF)
This is a solid performer with good contrast and color rendition, resolution is impressive wide open and by f4 is outstanding. Focus speed and noise are more than acceptable. The most impressive characteristic I noticed straight away, is the superb control of flare, or almost totally absent at wider apertures when shooting into the sun. This is quite exceptional compared to any lenses I have used and very desirable for landscape work.
I don't know if it is just my copy, but I have experienced occasional Front focus issues in subdued light.
