FeaturesDi: Digitally Integrated Design, is a designation Tamron puts on lenses featuring optical systems designed to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras. These lenses are the most compact and lightest in the history of fast zoom lenses. Thanks to the revolutionary downsizing "XR" technology employed by Tamron in the development of high-power zoom lenses such as the 28-200mm and 28-300mm, the dramatic compactness that makes this lens the world's smallest and lightest is achieved. Its compactness makes it look and feel like an ordinary standard zoom lens, yet the versatility that a fast constant maximum aperture offers will definitely reshape your photographic horizons.

I would buy this product again.
from Covington, KY.
I haven't had the lens very long, but it has been very nice for the money. I have used it in various situations and it has performed reasonably well. I am happy with my decision to purchase it.
Best walkaround sharp lens
About Me Photo Enthusiast
Tamron 28-75 is a brutally sharp lens even wide open. There are already too many reviews out there. IS feature might be better but I don't really need that since I can always set a safe shutter speed. Let me repeat again: This lens is so sharp.
Great glass, poor focus
from Bellevue, WA
This lens has an awesome glass, durable body. You will get almost same results as Canon's L series lens, if you're lucky to get a copy that focuses right. Mine had severe front focus issue. I ended up returning it. Tamron, you should charge $100 more and improve quality control on these. This is an awesome glass pacakged with inaccurate/unadjusted focus system.
Nice - I would buy again

as good as Canon but less expensive
Great Lens for the money
from Orange County, CA
Got the lens in the mail. Tried it out with pretty good results. The focus is moderately fast but sometimes the focus can be a bit soft. Gets sharper when stopping down the aperture a bit. External flash recommended in low lighting as the focus in low lighting isn't very sharp.For the money I can ignore most of the cons. Considered a Canon 24-70L, but it was out of my price range. I would pay a bit more if it had USM (USD for Tamron).For my needs (event photography), it's a great lens.
Good product.Much better than kit lenses.Slightly heavy.
Almost as good as Canon "L"...
from Austin, Texas
This is a great lens if you are looking to move up from the "kit" lenses that come with the Canon consumer and prosumer models. Essentially the Tamron is very close to the Canon L lens for about a third of the cost. My copy is clean and sharp and autofocus is good in most instances with the only issues being noted in really poor light.Overall I am very happy with this lens and would recommend it as a smart purchase.[...]

Very pleased with this lens
from Longmont , CO
I bought this lens because I wanted a lens faster than the kit lens of my Canon Rebel. I also own a couple of fast Canon lenses - a 50mm prime and a "70-200 2.8L IS". This Tamron is every bit as good as a "L" lens in terms of build quality, colors/contrast, speed of auto-focus and low-light performance.The best part is that it costs less than 1/3rd the price of the Canon 24-70 "L" lens. This lens also comes with a 6 year warranty, which is awesome when compared with Canon's standard 1 year.With this lens, I have shot little league basketball in a gym ; model portfolios in low ambient light as well as using strobes in studios ; products and food in a studio - all with great results.You would be hard pressed to find a better lens at this price point.
