    Default Newbie need help in buying TAmron 17-50 f2.8

    Like the title says i'm a newbie and i "want" the Tamron 17-50f2.8 and need help someone with experience buying lens whom is able to accompany me to check the lens as i read several issues regarding front/back focussing and also sharpness....if someone is willing to help me I'm definitely will pick u up and send u home maybe a free dinner if you want to

    If i cant get anyone I'll prbably just go ahead and buy it and sent it back to the shop claiming sharpness and back focusing issue so that they will send back to japan??for calibration.....like i said before this is a want so i dont need it anytime soon and dont mind waiting for it

    Please do not flame me if you feel that this post is rubbish

    Go to shops with good rep like John 3:16, MS Color, Orient Photo if they have stock. If you go on a weekday, you can try the lens in the shop for as long as you want and even the shop sales will help test for you.

    Tamron is good but rma sibei troublesome.

    haha i was apprehensive about buying my first lens on my own too, but I took down some pointers from this thread:

    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=311048

    and got the courage to buy one myself! Then again I will never know if i bought a less sharper copy, but what the hell, i love my lens! =D
