ah, just a question guys. is the zoom ring of the tamron 17-50 hard to turn?

a friend of mine recently got this lens (but for the Nikon mount), and I tried
the lens and turn the zoom ring but i had to exert a great deal of effort
compared to turning the zoom ring of my Canon EF-S 55-250mm.

was that normal? or was it a bad copy that my friend had?

i'm also planning to get this wonderful lens along with the 60mm
and i'm concerned with the 'zoom ring issue'. thanks

My Tamron 17-50mm was a tad tight when I first got it.. After 18 months use the zoom ring is silky smooth..

It will loosen up after use..

Nice pics, barq. Did you use an ND filter on the last one? Great flare control, something the Canon 17-55 is often bashed for.
