So I want to upgrade my 18-135 KIT lens, and I think this is the best for it's price.. I don't want to spend the double for the canon version.
I have Canon 60D, and sometimes I shoot weddings as a "2nd shooter" to get experience :D
What do you think about this lens, does it worth it?
Thanks!

I've had it for over a year and have zero complaints. Good price.

But, have you looked into a 24-70mm? It may be a better zoom range for what you are looking to do.

Yes, but it's too expensive for me.. by the way is it soft at wide open?

I own it and like it. It's good, not great. A little soft wide open.

I can't speak for the Sigma or Canon equivalents, but I have had the Nikon version for several years. I've never regretted getting it and my 'primary' lens is the Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VRII so I'm no stranger to top level glass. Can the Tamron perform as well as the 70-200? Not completley, but can hold its own well enough. I've never hesitated to switch to the 17-50 when the 70-200 was too long on my D7000.
