everyday lense

Re: everyday lense

My 40D came with the 28-135 kit lens. The 28 just wasn't wide enough half the time, so I picked up the 18-55 out of necessity since the price was right. I agree that I've never liked it all that much, but it does the job.

My main walkabout lens now is a Tamron 28-75 2.8. I know most people tend to shirk away when you read Tamron, but other than occasionally being a bit soft at 2.8, its a great upgrade from the 18-55. Granted, I've been shooting with my 10-22 a lot lately simply because of it being car show season, but I do love that Tamron.

Received this morning, this thing is huge especially with the hood on it, really heavy built feels nice, makes my xsi look small though. Maybe time for a 7d haha. Wont have any picture testing for a couple weeks but overall the feel of it is really nice compared to kit lense, gonna be a lil heavy on a neck strap though.
