    Of course its a ring type full ftm lens.. That was why i was interested in it as well.. The cheaper micromotor variant Usm does not support full ftm except for one lens, i believe its the 50mm f/1.4 Usm .
    So how many of u all wid me that i should go for the 17-50tamron and don look back?

    Also wid it include the ef50mm f/1.8 or is there no need for this second lens since the tamron already covers that range ? And good reasons i should just get the tamron or both tamron and the 50mm ? I am beingining to sway more to these 2 lens rather than the 17-85mm .

    Definitely the 17-50mm. The 50mm is also handy because its aperture opening is larger than the 17-50, though both cover the same focal length.

    for me, i don't need 50mm f1.8 since i have tamron 17-55mm. i bought it to replace my kit lens and no regret so far.

    ya i second that. Just get the 17-50 first. KIV the 50/1.8
    Who knows? You might prefer to take photos at a slightly wider focal length (eg 30mm), then you'd have saved yourself buying a white elephant, even though it's an affordable white elephant
    Exploring! :)
