I was pretty set on purchasing the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 lens but I saw some good prices on the 28-105 f2.8 and it made give it a second thought. Anyone care to share their experiences with the two lenses? I don't think the 28-105 is a DI lens but does it make a significant difference? I would appreciate some insight from anyone who uses these lenses.

Oh yeah, this lens would be for the 10D & 20D.

Thanks

I LOVE my tamron 28-75 2.8 in ways that could have me arrested in several states. It is fast and designed for the non full frame sensor, optimal speed, color and sharpness and incredibly light-weight.

The 28-105 2.8 is not light weight [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] 82mm size to it. HEAV-eeeeeeeeeee. But sharp as anything [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Not meant for digital per say but it can still give you some nice results. But here is the problem... Tamron is not making them anymore, Nikon was still in stock but Canon they stopped making this year. Only way of finding one is to find a dealer that has them in stock currently cause odds are they will not be able to get one for you.

Both good choices, but from a price point and the fact its going digital, I would take the 28-75 2.8 DI lens. Your not going to win any prizes with focal length, but if you got another lens, this is a great lens for your arsenal.

Thanks for the input. There's not many people that have something bad to say about that lens thats for sure. Sounds like you and the Tamron (or Tammy as you probably call it) enjoy those long walks on the beach. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Seriously though, do you ever find yourself limited by the focal length? What lens are you using in the medium telephoto range?

Thanks again

I was in the exact same boat about a month ago. In the end I decided the 28-105 was too big and heavy and got the 28-75. Beautiful lens and I've pretty much shot with only it since I bought it.

I appreciate your input. I think that's exactly what I will end up doing. The 28-105 is so tempting though.

I have used the 28-105 for some time now and love it, however after a day of shooting I take a couple of ibuprofen before going to bed. It is not a DI lens, so you are not restricted to digital. For vacations, etc. I would use an older Tamron 28-200, but recently purchased a Nikon 24-120. It has greater range and the VR makes up for the f-stop loss.

I wouldn't hesitate to grab the 28-105. The extra 30mm are great to tight cropping on a portrait.

I have the 28-75mm f2.8 and love it. Some times I wish I had the exra 30mm but then again, I don't think I would want the extra weight. I think you'll be happy with either one.

I have the 28-105mm....granted it was a bit heavy at first..I use it in the studio....and I've grown to love it....two reasons...its very sharp..and going from what I had before....the weight has forced me to slow down and take my time, oh and did I mention strong left forearm?
Jack,Sam, Jimmy! dont even go there!!
