    Price range around the same as 17-50. And since my Canon kit is very sharp hence not intending to replace it.

    So thot of the 28-75 to use as a zoom lens for portrait shoot. It's an alternative for the very expensive Canon 24-70. Haha!

    But you might lose out on range. I was thinking of that too. 24-75mm and the 70-200mm will have a gapless range. But i lose out on the wide end. Of course i can replace the wide end with a 10-22mm easily, or maybe a Tokina 10-17mm. But it will add to added costs.

    For me is otherwise. I edit in RAW, convert to jpeg. Looks like not edited at all. How do you edit via DPP?

    There's no one size fits all.

    DSLR is all about changing lenses and having the lens for a purpose. (i.e. if I know, I'm going for a portrait shoot then I will pack my equipment accordingly. It doesn't mean you have to bring the whole dry cabinet out, don't you? Well, if one wants to bring the whole dry cabinet out then it's fine too because I'm not the photographer carry the bag. Haha! )

    Eh, added cost? From the day you stepped into the world of DSLR, you should know that you are stepping into an expensive hobby.

    Actually, 28-75 is kinda good for street photography. On our cropped bodies, 44.8mm to 120mm - pretty good at the longer end.

    I brought all my stuff on my Vday shoot and ended up with back ache when i went home. Haha. To be frank, i've not shot anything on the 17mm range yet. But i believe when i go for my trip, i might be shooting some landscapes. Like buildings and cliff sides.

    At the moment, 18mm is fine for me. Just play around with your position. Make good with what you have.

    Put a red rubber band and you'll get a custom-made one!

    Nevertheless, Tamron is a real gem.

    Unless there's specific needs, otherwise your kit lens should be more than enough.

    How do u save the JPEG file from your CS3?
    Do take note that it is about 240dpi for your RAW development while it is only about 72dpi for your JPEG if you save the JPEG without 100% option.
    For me, my JPEG is about 240dpi and I normally save the JPEG with 100% option.

    Not too sure about DPP.
    Never use that b4.
    But I think that it is still the same problem.
    It might be due to the dpi problem.

    I really like Tamron. It is really value for money.
    My 17-50mm and 70-300mm really never disappoint me with its IQ.

    Then save up for 28-75mm if possible.

    Actually it would be good to have 17-50mm, 28-75mm, 70-200mm, 200-500mm.
