I have a Nikon d5100 with the twin kit lenses.
the 18-55 broke which I will grab a part online and fix for a few bucks, keep for a knock around lens.
Any way I bought a Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f2.8 XR Di-II LD from online.
it wasnt auto focus all the time so I returned it and after a lengthy battle Ive fineley got my money back.
Well its on its way through paypal.
So Im still after a new lens, an in the 17 - 50 range for an alrounder and wider lens.
the money im getting refunded is $304 lol but I dont mind throwing in up to another 100 bucks.
this time I will be going to thats local to me.
So the price comparo to in shop and online will suffer a fair bit im thinking.
Unless there is another good online place to get one.
What im really after is what lens can you sudggest for 300 - 400 clams. in this focal range.
I did like the look and feel of the origanl Tamron that I bought. but im worrie dbaout getting the same one and have the same issue.
I read on a forum that they had the same problem but he got a replacement one.
and another person said his works but hate low light and some times wont even auto focus in low light.
when i tried mine it was daylight inside.
So either way I wasnt happy with that exact one I had.
is it still worth getting the same lens or another one all together, be either nikon, sigma,tamron
hope someone can help me out.
