Thanks for yor tips!
The plan now is to. Uy the Tamron 17-50 lens and then later when i have saved som more money buy a 18-135 lens to use as a walkaround lens.
I really want a lens to use indoor and the Tamron seems like a good choise.

Why not save for the DA18-135 instead of getting the Tamron and then selling it off to buy the 18-135. This lens is a good all purpose lens as I too have it together with the DA*16-50 F2.8 (my default kit lens).

Otherwise go for the Tamron/Sigma 17-50 F2.8 as it is very good in low light situations.
