Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD samples

----------------------------------------------------

Tamron 28-75 is a walkabout lens for me even though a bit inadequate on the wider end:

Awesome. It's my walkabout lens too. Here's a couple from last week. I only took it and my DA15 to Germany. That took care of the wide end, and still a relatively light travel kit.

Please tell, what was your secret on #2?

I just ordered one. I had some credit at Adorama from a gift I returned and just sold a shot to my alma mater for a recruitment poster so I went for it.
Really looking forward to trying this out!

I like this lens. Sharpness isn't far from the primes I love so much and color looks good. I think I have a keeper!
28mm 1/90s f/8 ISO 200

this lens seems to get used mainly for portrait shooting- does anybody have some more landscape/city photo samples?

thanks
