    I finally said fuck it an ordered the Tamron 28-75 2.8 since I desperately needed a mid range lens and shooting all the time with primes and ultra wides simply wasn't cutting it. So I got my buddy and his younger brother as my assistant and went to an abandoned factory (great urban exploration there too).

    I am freaking in love with this lens..I did the entire shoot with the lens and its just about perfectly sharp handles like a dream..obviously id rather get the beast of the nikon version, but at about 1/4 the price its just way to good of a price to pass it up with my budget.

    Here are a few of the photos I took

    nice shots as always, first one almost looks photoshopped into the scene.

    second i'm not too crazy about. lil overly dark and face is a lil too concealed for my tastes between the fence and the shadows. whats the strap / pouch thing around his neck/waste?

    third.. is he swinging a board?

    first one I was going for a really high fashion advertisement look..so far I think it worked real nice. Second one ill probably go back and reedit later, he was wearing a jumpsuit and wasn't actually going to take pictures, just decided since he was helping so much might as well get a few shots of him.
    third one its a piece of some random crap that was on the floor..you can see how dirty my lens is there :mamoru:

    agreed, looks good. though i think his right hand looks a bit awkward the way he holds his belt. other than that, looks good.

    i was playing with a 17-55 2.8 yesterday and that thing is amazing. i would go with that over the beast; not that the beast isnt an incredible lens just that you get the wide end with the digital lens.

    I thought long and hard about that lens over this one (the tamron version) and since I already have the 12-24, it just makes more sense to get this one.

    What kind of lighting setup did you use in the first one?

    in the first 1 the catchlights on his glasses are a bit too much, and that plant on his left is very very distracting

    excellent point; i would make the same decision if i were in your shoes. not having a nice wide angle myself the 17-55 would handle all of my landscape needs and prevent having to buy the 12-24.

    I really need to buy an external flash but I'm really poor.
