I've had one for about three or four years now and I'm pretty happy with it. It's basically my go-to all purpose lens. Good range of useful focal lengths, constant fast aperture, sharp and decent rendering. The colors and the bokeh aren't as good as my primes but it is a whole heck of a lot more convenient than swapping out three different lenses on the go. Build quality is pretty good for me, better than the 18-55 it replaced although not as good as the older A lenses I own.
Everything he just said!

I have the Tamron and find it to be a great lens, much better than the kit lens. You can view pics in my gallery (same username) at DPR - look for the indoor market pics.
