As per my knowledge, Tamron as recently release lens with the motor which works with D50/D40will it even fit on my d50?
and why would amazon charge tax?
I spend most of my shooting time at the wider end so the 17-50 seems to fit my needs as a carry around lens (for now anyway:biggrin. The extra low light capability of the f/2.8 aperture is a plus. So far the lens hasn't been off my camera.Mike a question for you. Do you think its worth taking this lens even if you have 18-135 or say 18-200 in my case?
Hmmm, I didn't know this. I checked my lens and it's made in Japan. Also focus is dead on.... I would also recommend searching for a "Made in Japan" version. The "Made in China" samples seem to have higher variation, but this is purely anecdotal - I tried 2 Chinese copies, and they both front focused really bad; my 3rd attempt was a Japanese one and it focused dead on!Mike
