Re: since you have NIKON, try to find the older SCREW-DRIVE 17-50 version!

I just noticed you have Nikon DSLR.  Tamron 17-50 (non-VC) actually come in both version.  The older SCREW-DRIVE version (not compatible with D40/D60/D3200), and the newer In-Lens-Motor.  Buy the older Screw-Drive version, its fantastic.  My friends had this lens on his D90, its focus very quick and quiet unlike the canon version with micro-motor inside the lens.

Thank you.

But I use the wonderful 18-70 on my Nikon SLR non VR

I just want to get some better lens on my 600D instead of the kit lens.

The kit lens is not bad,far from that,but you have to stop down A good amount to get rid of the corners.

It seem to me the tamron 17-50 do better.I hope at least.

But can,t find any reviews with pictures from the lens

Thank you again.
