    haha...what would one expectations on such a all-in-one type of lens......i think in some circumstances......image quality (usually subjective - depens on individuals critieria) would be less significant if the shot powerful compositon goes well beyond the nitty gritty image quality....+ convenience!!!!!

    might be quite ok. Tamron has done pretty well with the XR incarnations of the super zooms. also, the accurate focussing of the 20D would help

    aint ridiculous, but its a welcome addition to the tamron range...very good
    whats more interesting is the 11-18 zoom they're coming up with too. hope its a cheap alternative to the sigma or nikon 12-24s.

    Hi sh! Its been a while since we met!

    Actually, there are some super zooms with good quality output (eg Sigma 50-500). Its just that most superzooms do not do a good job in terms of resolution or sharpness. Which is why I am wondering about this new Tamron. They seem to be improving heaps... as what mpenza has said....

    But yeah... above all, composition matters most....
