Tamron 28-75mm... I think I love it.

I went on my first real outing with this lens and I think I'm in love with it. It's only real drawback for me is that it's a bit heavy for me, but I understand that it's light compared to other lenses like it. I was really happy with the way my pictures came out. Even without post processing a lot of them look really good! I think it has pretty bokeh too! I'm happy anyway.

Here are some of my favorites below. Feel free to post some of your favorites too.


F2.8 at 75mm



F3.2 at 75mm



F4.5 at 75mm

Howdy, and welcome to the "I love this lens" club. I am very happy with mine. I dont notice the weight too much because my other favorite lens right now is the Vivitar Series 1 105 and it is heavy too.

Great first shots with it, nice colors and smooth OOF area... I love this lens...

It's a fabulous lens, although I just recently sold mine to help fund the DA 35mm LTD. I am having a hard time boxing it up, and sending it to it's new owner now. You will enjoy this lens a lot more once you find it's sweet spot.
