Anyone here has any experience with Tamron lens? I'm planning to buy a telephoto lens in Hidalgo.

They're one of the big 3rd party manufacturers for Nikon/Canon/Sony DSLR systems, along with Sigma.

Quality varies from lens to lens though, but their 17-50mm f2.8 is quite popular alternative to the Canon/Nikon originals.

I have a friend who swears by his tamron 70-200, for about half the price of the canon and nikon equivalents there isn't much you'll miss for the price point. I've also read that the G2 version of that lens is even better than the canon and nikon equivalents.

I still have my Tamron 17-50 2.8.

after about 8 years of use, medyo nag higpit yung zooming mechanism nya. It still works though pero kailangan na ng konting force para mag-zoom out or zoom in.

Ginagamit ko pa rin sya ngayon. Kapag tuluyan na syang nasira, I will still buy another tammy 17-50 2.8 rather than the canon equivalent.

Interestingly the highest-rated lens on DXOmark is a Nikon-mount Sigma 85mm f/1.4 prime, beating out Carl Zeiss and first-party glass.

They serve different purposes IMHO, 50 is close to half-body portrait at normal 35mm scene distances, you have to move a fair bit backward to get equivalent of 35mm field of view on a 50mm. Same applies for 35mm for portraits/close-ups.

I'd personally go with 50mm.

pag kailangan ng wider wider shots, camera phone pwede na. hehe
