    Smile Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 vs DT 18-70mm

    Hi! Im really interested in getting the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 MACRO as my next step up lens. Ive heard good things bout it from ppl here and a lot of Sony DSLR users already have it. I'd really like to see the difference a good lens can make in comparison to kit lens. Can anyone post performance/comparison shots of the Tamron with the kit DT 18-70mm? Thanks!

    Take some time and scroll back through the threads here if you haven't done so. There are numerous and rather detailed discussions on lenses, comparisons, evaluations, comments and opinions. Take a look at what lenses keep showing up in our tag lines also to see what is being used. Don likely has the largest collection of glass and Tamron on here so he is a good source. Also what kinds of things will you be shooting, wanting to shoot, and do you have a 'glass plan' just recently was a good thread on a basic glass set up.

    Cool Show me the ... results!

    @Miggylicious - click on this link will take you to some comparisons that were done a few months back, between some popular zoom lenses people either have or chose ... roughly in the 17-80 range.

    It could answer some questions you probably didn't even know you had.
