^Dizzy, that's cute! :)

If you can live without the hood on you could grab a cheap 67->77 adapter ring (or similar) and use a larger filter. Certainly helpful if you have other lenses with a 77mm filter thread anyway. I'm not sure if the adapter to 77mm, for example, would be sufficiently out of the way.

Thanks for trying to help! I'm mostly using this lens for traveling and hiking, so I want convenience and the smallest size possible. I think I'll stick with my current polarizer and edit out the dark corners when needed.

I got a really good deal on this lens,initial thoughts are GOOD! It looks great, the focus is perfect and this appears to be a very sharp copy. It looks good wide open as well, although I'm sure stopping it down will be even better. I'll try to get some pics today and post very soon. So excited! If this works out good for me I may sell my awesome 17-40L...we'll see.

You're probably right...the 17-40 is my first wide angle and I'm so not used to it. I may keep both lenses, I'm just on this new kick right now of trying to only keep what I use. I just sold some and bought "new" ones in different focal lengths. Partly due to the fact that I could use the money right now and then can just buy another one back later if I want to. ??? I'm super new to landscape photography anyway ...another reason I'm having trouble justifying keeping the 17-40. I don't know! I also risk not ending up with a sharp copy the second time around. Decisions, decisions...

I just picked up a well used Tamron 28-75 via Craigslist. I did a few test shots and viewed them on the LCD screen of my 5D Classic. They seemed OK, so I bought the lens and took it home for further testing.

After doing a studio shoot and shooting some lens test targets at various distances and settings, I'm pleasantly surprised by how well this lens works. No front or back focus issues, nice bokeh. I think it is going to be a nice studio lens for me.

You can tell the build quality is not that of a Canon lens and certainly not an L series lens. But then the size and weight is much less than the equivalent L lens too. Seems like a good trade off to me, since I am not hard on my lenses.

^for the price, it is a great lens that I am loving for the past year. Not having ever using any L lenses, I can see still some short comings in the lens, but really you can work around it with some skill and this lens can pump out some great images!

Again I must disagree. I think the build quality is up there with other lenses. In this case I don't even think it's less robust either.
