    First impression, this thing is sweet. Awesome DOF at f/2.8. I havent shot with it a lot seeing as how it was dark when I got home. I did mess around in the kitchen a bit. Tomorrow I will go outside and see what I can find in my yard. I look forward to warm weather, and having class in downtown Chicago.

    I take it you're talking of the same Tamron 17-50 that I have?

    I love that lens. I just took this shoot 2 days ago... It's amazing how sharp the images are:

    I got the same lens for my Sony. Great lens...probably my best lens purchase so far (my other purchases are a 50/1.7 minolta and a 10-20/4-5.6 Sigma). The 10-20 Sigma lens is really cool, but not practical for most shots.

    I pick up mine (used) over the weekend as well. But did not have a chance to really use it yet. (assuming we are talking about the Tamron lens)
