My new 28-75 just came today from Amazon. I'm working so I only had enough time to fire off a couple quick shots at the cat. It appears to be very sharp. Thanks again for the help and I'll post some pictures when I get time to figure out how. I called Tamron and they are extending the rebate on the 90 macro so I may still get one of those later.

Glad you p/u the 28-75. Awesome lens. Mine hardly ever leaves the body.

One other note - you may find that using a macro for portraits a bit offsetting, as they tend to be almost too sharp for that purpose. I don't have the Tamron 90mm, but I do have the Sigma 70mm f2.8 EX DG, and I would assume that they are fairly similar in that respect.

Good choice though...

I have both and if I had only one to keep it would be the 28-78mm. If the macro takes great shots. Only had the 90mm fo about a month and still getting use to it. Good luck with you new 28-75
