But the Minolta X300s is not the only camera which has get a new friend. My canon 400D has a new buddy, a Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 LD ASPHERICAL (IF). I was long time wishing to have a new and better ALL-AROUND lens, I have the 18-55m IS which works ok, but I was in need of a lens with which I could get more light and sharpness (mainly for the photographs I take at live music shows.)
I was several weeks checking out web sites, reviews, forums and asking another photgraphers about which could be a good and “cheap” ALL-AROUND lens, and finally after a hard decision, I choose the Tamron 17-50mm 2.8.
Here some of the first photos shot with this buddy:
