Comments:

I was not expecting it to compete with the Canon 24-70 lens, but I will say, it does a pretty good job getting the crisp shots I got when I would use the 24-70. So far, I'm very happy with this lens, and would recommend it to anyone that just isn't ready to hand over the money for the Canon 24-70 lens.

Comments:

I'm not a pro. let me get that out of the way first. However, this lens has made my shots look a lot more professional. My gear: Canon XSi 12mp Canon Speedlite 430EX II Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 SP XR Di I coupled the tamron lens with a Hoya Circular Polarizing filter. Took a bunch of shots to find the sweet spot on this lens, and my shots have improved drastically now. The sweet spot, in my opinion, is around f7. Bokeh on this lens isn't the best, but it is very passable for use in portraits. I like it better than my 50mm f1.8 AF, although reverse engineered, works well with my XSi. The motor is plenty fast. I'd say almost as fast as an USM in a canon lens.
