I have been doing a lot of research and reading regarding upgrading from my 18-55 kit lens (here in potn). Now I have read a lot of reviews/opinions on the Tamron 17-50 and Sigma 17-50.
I would like a lens that will replace my kit lens for events and to use as an everyday lens also. I currently use an XTI and have a 580ex flash. I do have a budget of at least $500. I am looking to rent first and see how it performs which at the moment only has these two lenses: Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II VC LD for Canon and Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II VC for Canon (2 different site).
Would like to know if this is a good lens to rent? Am open to other suggestions. Thanks in advanced.
