Background: using 450D with kit lens 18-55 / F3.5-5.8 for sometime now.. also got the cheapo 50mm F1.8
Question: I looking at the popular Tamron 17-50 F2.8, and i read in the forum many are using it.. but is this lens worth spending $500-600 to replace the kit lens 18-55mm F3.5-5.8 ??
I was thinking, if i want a fast lens maybe i shld just go get a 35mm f2 or a 28mm f1.8 .. since a 17-50mm isn't giving a wide focal range anyway so might as well hv one fixed but with faster speed.
what you guys think?
