    Cons: some CA's, 200 mm not real sharp

    Pros: high sharpness from 35 up to 135mm, when stopped down to f8

    Summary: this is a real good zoom for weddings

    Cons: Longer end is tricky and hard to achieve sharp result below f/8.

    Pros: Good sharpness from 28mm all the way to 100mm.

    Summary: I got this lens for multi purpose use. Sharpness is good especial from 28mm all the way til 100mm. Things got tricky from 100-200 due to sharpness drop. Set at least f/8 to get a decent sharpness. Or play around from f/11 - f/16 when on 150-200mm :) so to use on day time is alrite, but low light, i suggest pump up some Iso til 1600, set shutter to at least 1/25 for f/7.1 to get a decent result for across the whole picture :)

    Cons: Would have been near perfect if it had Tamron's Anti-shake system. Not as wide as some at wide angle end - for that go for one of the models starting at 18mm

    Pros: Nice and light, great sharp images

    Summary: Nice walkabout lens if you don't need really wide angle. Reasonable reach at 200mm Lovely lens to use
