  • I don't use lenses. I spent too much on my whizz bang bells and whistles camera so I can't afford a similar lens full of bells and whistles so I rather not use a cheap lens, 3rd party or original.

    I used 18-105, 35mm F1.8, 55-300mm then after i tried the tamron 17-50mmVC. I feel more confident on the result...(First time using 3rd party lens.) And happy with it)

    I used Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC OS HSM for my everyday walk about lens. And it is really nice. No regret getting it.
    So I will use both 3rd party and original lens depends on which is worth the penny.

    2) Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 EX DC
    3) Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 IF EX DG HSM
    4) Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF)
    5) Tokina AT-X 16-50mm f2.8 Pro DX

    None of the above.

    You need wide fast prime lenses if you want thin DoF.
