    I have the 28-75mm which I got 2nd hand for around $400. It's a relatively sharp lenses though focusing is a bit slow. What I like about the lens is the close focusing performance is quite good. Good minimum focusing distance and decent magnification for those casual close-up shoot of food, flowers etc

    17-50 ftw. The lens is v sharp wide open and its range is suitable for crop. I think it is worth it to get the local one cos there is 3 yrs warranty for it. I think it is my sharpest lens so far..
    I need to shoot more!

    i feel that the 10-22 is just as sharp.

    nevertheless, both 10-22 and 17-55 have good resolving power.

Actually it all depends on your style of photography. and yes, both the 17-50mm and the 28-75mm lens are pretty similar in terms of sharpness (both have excellent sharpness - center). as someone had mentioned before, the 28-75mm lens is made for full frame, but I would not recommend that for FF user because the corners are quite soft... for cropped camera, it seemed alright though.

    Anyway if you are certain that you would not be taking far off objects and using the 600D, 17-50mm will be a fabulous choice.

One suggestion, if you are not too urgent in need of these lens, you could actually rent both first and have at least 1 day of use to see which one suits you better. Then go to the shop and do a thorough test on the lens you want before buying that lens (you can check out some of the thread here on what to look out for when testing the lens before buying).
    i see, i think i will go for 17-50mm and maybe ask my friend lend me his 55-200mm. haha. is there any other lens that cover from roughly 17-75+? f2.8? noob here. >< i think i ask to try out both lens first bah. i leaning towards from buying at mscolor.

    But if possible for you to add alittle more budget..you can get a 18-200 or 18-250..This kind of lenses are usually very useful since it cover from wide to a good zoom range..and you dont have to keep changing your lenses on the move. Not too expansive..and not too heavy. : )
    wow thanks, yeah, i guess will go for 17-50 bah. 18-200 or 18-250 got f2.8?

    sometimes i do shoot indoor and low light thus f2.8 will be a great help to me.

Budget for the camera and the lens around 1.5k, haven't buy yet though. i looked up at tamron website but cant find much different about them. >< anyone can help? price between them is roughly the same right? Thanks.
    Go for 17-50mm, the images are sharp and definitefly a good lens that matches it's price. I was like u when i got myself a 500d, i bought 28-75mm but after 2 months i sold it away.

    Some of the reasons
    - Not Wide Enough for group shot
    - Slow Focus
    - Images not sharp

    Not wide enough for a group shot can be attributed to:

    1) photographer doesn't understand the meaning of FOV
    2) photographer's too lazy to take a few steps back
    3) flash isn't powerful enough to light up everyone from far

    Slow Focus

    1) most probably attributed to shooting in low-light

    Images not sharp

    1) handshake due to slow shutter speed in low-light conditions
    2) camera focused on the wrong subject in the focal plane, rendering the main subjects OOF.

    but that's just my guess.

    @fastforwardtofriday you should go and find the reviews on the lens online.

    You might to do a search on clubsnap before buying a local set. My personal experience with JEL wasn't too good. Both personal reasons and JEL limited manpower, their customer service however, is acceptable. But not worth spending $200 to $300 extra for the warranty of a cheap lens.

    i have done my research on 17-50mm, but idk which is idea for an all rounder between this 2 lens for me. becos i like the range on 75mm but 28 seems tight.

    JEL corporation, the local agent for Tamron. You have to go back to them for any servicing and problems.

    JEL is the local Tamron service partner. Not sure what other people consider as 'cheap lens' but the 17-50 is far from being one and the price for local warranty is less than $200.
