The SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II VC covers the heavily-used 17-50mm focal distance range (angle of view equivalent to 26?78mm when converted to the full frame format) making it an extremely versatile, high-performance zoom lens. Achieving sharpness and striking contrast, the lens produces beautiful images that are enhanced by the shallow depth-of-field afforded by the maximum aperture of F/2.8 and enriches the user's range of photographic expression. The new lens is equipped with Tamron's proprietary Vibration Compensation (VC) image stabilization mechanism, which provides more opportunities for hand-held photography, such as low-lit conditions like evening, night scenes and indoors, leading to a dramatically enhanced level of photographic freedom.

About Me Photo Enthusiast
As stated in the lens review on [@]: "This fast, compact, stabilized workhorse will shine in low light, with cluttered backgrounds you'd like to defocus, and with active subjects you need to freeze with high shutter speeds. Best of all? It cost 1/3 to 1/2 the price of most f/2.8 ultrawide zooms." I agree and Beech Camera informed me about a $100.00 rebate from Tamron I didn't know about. Thanks Beach Camera!!!

I like it

The lens hasn't left my camera since I got it and I'm loving it. Autofocus is fast, although its a little noisy, especially with VC.
