    I ordered a 40D and wasn't planning on selling the old body, but a guy offered me $800 for my XT, 28-135, and 75-300. How could I say no? I'm gunna go buy the Tamron 28-75 2.8 with it, and save the leftovers for my 70-200 2.8 IS fund.

    Congrats on off-loading the XT for that much. Why not pick up the Tamron 17-50? Granted I have both, but if I had to chose it would be the 17-50. Faster autofocus, wider and 17 wide is much more usable than 70 long. I recommend both, but only the 28-75 as a supplement to the 17-50 and the 70-200.

    I have the Canon 10-22 which does all my wide stuff already, figured the 28-75 was a nice progression being f2.8 and all.

    Ahh, well there ya go. Yeah, the 28-75 is a great lens. It is a bit slow to focus and needs a good deal of contrast. It's not incredibly slow so that you miss a lot of action, but it can be painful sometimes. Otherwise, color, sharpness, contrast, bokah are all great with that lens. :bigthumb:
