Been using the kit lens 17-55 on D5000 for the past two years . So decided to take a step ahead and getting or maybe upgrade a lens . Been eyeing on Tamron 17-50 f2.8 non vc for street wise, potraits and such .

I'm not sure should i get the VC type or non VC ? is there any differences in the pictures ?

1. Please use a descriptive topic next time. "Lens" is just useless. You have been a member since 2010. You should know this.

2. The Tamron VC vs. non-VC has already been discussed to death all over CS, from the Nikon section to the Canon section to the general section... Please SEARCH first next time. You have been a member since 2010. You should know this. For example:

3. This will help too:

4. Most importantly, rent the lens first to see if you will really improve.

The tamron non-vc is reputed to be much sharper than the vc version.But the 17-55mm is still the king of crop sensor body.Just wondering why do you want to "downgrade" to the 3rd party lens.Cheers!

3rd party lenses can be far higher quality than the "original" ones too at times...

I think TS is referring to 18-55 kit lens. Not 17-55 f2.8. Just go for non vc bro. U don't really need a vc at this focal length. Non vc is cheaper n sharper. Been using it n loving it. No regret there. Cheers!

price - the only factor that people choose the tamron 17-50 alternative.

You might want to consider the Sigma equivalent. I was looking for a new lens a few weeks back, and after doing my homework I felt that the tamron AF wouldn't meet my expectations, so I got the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 for a few hundred $ more.

But in terms of cost, the tamron is the cheapest standard zoom f/2.8 for crop sensor bodies, so if you have a tight budget then you definitely know which one to get.
