Tamron 17-35 f 2.8-4 £400

"autofocus fast and reasonably quiet on nikon-ft version we tried"
"zoom and focus controls operate smoothly"
"none rotating 77mm filter thread"

"optically this lens is a cracker, with distortion very well controlled, even at 17mm"

"used at max aperture edge definition is good with better sharpness available by stopping down couple of stops"
"contrasty results - supplied hood keeps flare to a minimum"

"overall this is an impressive optic for both slr and dlsr - superb value for money"

89%

  • seems to be as good as the 28-75 - what we waiting for?
