Details from Tamron USA about this lens:

Setting high-performance DSLRs free with SP engineering, strengthened by F/2.8 maximum aperture advantages and Tamron VC.

The compositional options afforded by the SP 17-50mm F/2.8 Di-II VC’s wide-to-moderate-telephoto zoom characteristics are prized by experienced photographers, rendering a picture angle range approximating a 26-78mm lens on a full frame DSLR or a 35mm SLR. A fast and constant F/2.8 maximum aperture allows cluttered backgrounds to be softly obscured, additional freedom in low-light conditions and added viewfinder brightness. State-of-the art properties, including XR (Extra Refractive Index) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass in an optical formula employing 19 elements and 14 groups—assures sharpness, optimal contrast and breathtaking image fidelity. Its form factor and handling characteristics can be traced to the use of aspherical element design and internal focus. Tamron’s proprietary tri-axial VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization adds to image sharpness and further expands low-light shooting freedom by combating image blur resulting from camera shake. Tri-axial VC addresses the adverse effects of camera shake in three planes making it possible to shoot handheld at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible.

The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.

 


Here are a few images taken with this lens:

The results of the Vibration Compensation (Image Stabilization) are amazing in these Tamron lenses.  Check this example out!

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I already have the 28-75 mm Tamron and could greatly benefit from having the 17-50mm lens because sometimes I find myself backing all the way up against a wall to take a photograph. So I guess that means I could use a little more focal range.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    I usually find myself liking 35-50mm. but I suppose thats because its within my current focal length abilities! Maybe that would change to 25mm with a new lens =D

    My favorite focal length is 50mm.

    This lens would benefit me b/c I would be able to be more versatile during shoots without relying on MY speed to back up.

    I follow MCP on FB and love your site.

    How would this lens benefit your photography?

    Great give away!
    1. This lens would benefit my photography b/c my favorite lens is a Tamron that has seen too many years of hard work. It desperately needs to be replaced. I only have one other lens and it doesn’t match my Tamron.
    2. I should primarily with a 28-135 and find that around 35mm is where I shoot most. Must be my fav.
    3. I am a definite facebook fan!

  5. September 14, 2011 at 9:10 am —

    1. This lens would allow me to shoot wider angles. I’ve been experimenting with this lately and love some of the creative shots I can get. But I usually have to rent a lens.
    2. If I had to pick one focal length, I’d choose the 50mm. But I love using my 28-75mm zoom because it’s so versatile.
    3. I already “like” MCP Actions on Facebook. I get lots of info from the posts and the updates remind me to check the blog. 🙂

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography? This lens would be great in helping me with weddings. To have another lens to choose from would be awesome. That way I would have to keep switching cameras to get the look I want.
    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? 24-70 is one of my favs.
    3. I like MCP on FB!

    I would LOVE to win this lens!!! I just bought the 28-75 and if it were legal to marry a lens (and I wasn’t already married) I would marry this lens! I love shooting wide so this lens is next on my list. Thank you for this awesome giveaway!

    1. it definitely give me better options in lower light situations.
    2. my favorite is 50mm, though I’m still learning how to get my 1.8 to focus properly.
    3. I already like MCP Actions on FB.

    How would this lens benefit your photography? I think having a wider range of lenses to take different portraits and not using same focal length each and every shoot would be amazing. I think it could help advertise my point of view better as well.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? I love 50mm but occasionally I like shooting at 300mm to make sure my subjects don’t know they’re actually being captured on camera, they tend to act more natural that way.

    I have been a fan of MCP Actions on Facebook for quite some time now.

  10. September 14, 2011 at 9:09 am —

    1. I could use a wide lens…and this would be great!
    2. I love to shoot at 50mm.
    3. I *like* MCP Actions on FB.

  11. September 14, 2011 at 9:09 am —

    up until recently, the 50mm has been my favorite lens to shoot with but as I said above, there are so many limitations, particularly for travel photography.

    1. This lens, with its f2.8, would be a huge improvement over my current zoom lens, which is f4-5.6. It would allow me to get more shots using available light without increasing the ISO or being forced to use flash.
    2. My favorite focal length is currently 50mm, but I think once I buy a 35mm lens that may change. 😉
    3. I “like” MCP Actions on Facebook.

  13. September 14, 2011 at 9:09 am —

    I believe that if I had this lens it would be a big aspect for my business. I do a lot of weddings and studio photography and have not been able to afford getting a 2.8 lens. I would be using this lens a lot.
    right now after having to sale my camera and lens to help my family out when we both got laid off I only have a 18-55 3.5 lens. We did keep one camera so I can keep trying to make money for my family.

  14. September 14, 2011 at 9:09 am —

    This lens would be wonderful for taking my photos to the next level since I haven’t yet invested in a slight telephoto lens. I think the quality would be perfect for the types of photos I take (generally with a 50mm but I want something other than a fixed lens).

    1) I think this lens would benefit my photography because I don’t have a fast, wide lens. I’m trying to take more wide angle shots. I do a lot of landscape and portrait photography, and this length zoom with a fixed aperture would be perfect for my outside and inside work.
    2) My favorite focal length to shoot is 35-50mm, but I’m trying to shoot wider for something different and some variety.
    3) I do like MCP Actions on Facebook.

  16. September 14, 2011 at 9:09 am —

    I primarily shoot with a 50mm f/1/4 lens for portrait work but would love to add this lens to my collection! I really need a fast zoom when children run out of the 50mm sweet spot. I’m a follower on FB too!

    I would love to own a wide-angle lens and be able to shoot an entire building without standing in the next county! My favorite focal length really varies, but mostly around 50 mm. I love MCP Actions, and already “Like” on facebook!

    This lens would benefit me because this winter I will be shooting a lot of indoor sessions in a very small space. My 50mm 1.4 wont’ let me back up far enough. My fave focal length now is 50mm, because thats the lens I use 99% of the time. Also, I like MCP on facebook. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  19. September 14, 2011 at 9:06 am —

    while 50mm is my FAVORITE focal length to shoot, sometimes having something in the 17-50 range allows for wider shots with out having to move around (which when photographing kids can be HUGE – they move sooo much faster then I do!). This will enable me to get those wider shots a whole lot quicker which would give me more shots to offer my clients! 🙂

    And I love MCP- your facebook page is how I stay up to date on your stuff! 😀

    1. This lens would benefit me because I believe my 60mm is dying and I can not replace it right now

    2. Favorite focal length is 60mm-I love this lens

    3. I like MCP on Facebook!
