Just tried it on my XSi. With the hood it blocks quite a bit but it was fine without it.

Thanks! this is excellent to know.

my last image to this thread :(
sold my tamron moved to the canon 17-40 L, miss the f2.8
the tamron is a great lens, but the optics are not quite L quality, mainly the color rendition.
the sharpness is L quality or better.
i tested on my colorchecker, and the custom profile created from the 17-40, is almost the same as the standard profile, but for the 17-50 more noticeably different.
but Jesus the tamron is great xD, you can't go wrong with it.

Here is probably the last image from me, unless i go digging through more photos

Thanks :D, her hand is blown out, i didn't spend time fixing it in PP.
it good to get a good image to start with, but alot of it is post processing.
the great people on this forum take good images, then make them excellent in post

First post here i have spent the last 5 hours going through this thread reading and looking at just about every pic and reply :lol:

I must say there are some awesome photos in here from this lense, I currently have a 550d with the 18-55m lense kit, i have the tamron 17-50mm non vc version on the way should be here in a few days :) and will also be buying a 50mm 1.4 prime to go with the two, cant wait to have it delivered and start shooting.

keen to see more from this lense.

Trae

Hi I had read some review from photozone.de.
Non VC-The CA produce quite high at 17mm-34mm. Thought that will affect the sharpness/quality. This is I worry about. Im doubt whether going to get this lens or not. Seeking for advise from expert here. Many thanks in advanced.

I am pretty close to ordering this lens. Only thing giving me second thoughts is if I should go for the Sigma with OS instead...

I just got a chance to test this lens from a shop.
-Performance great.
-AF Speed fast enough.
-AF noice (just a little. Not as noise as I imagine)
-Consistence great sharpness.

Finally I bought it. Will test more again and share the result here. Tks. ^^

Finally got a 50D to replace my Rebel XT and I feel much more comfortable using this lens @ f/2.8 due to a better AF system. The lens is sharper wide open now than it was on the old camera. no MA was needed.

rcdy, garben, buy it used, it a superb lens., used saves you 150 bucks,way better then kit lens,
it is one of the best bang for your buck zooms, especially this range, i guess the other bang for your buck zoom would be the 70-200mm f4 L
it not as fast focusing as canon L lens, not as good color rendition as canon L,but you can get it for 350 or less used, and it a ton better then the canon zooms in that range
