Whenever I’m looking for a new lens for outdoor photography, I try to think about three main things. What is the cost of the lens compared to other competitors? Will it help me take better photos than I already do? Is it more advanced than my current lens selection? When I started to use the Tamron 17-28 f/2.8 wide-angle lens, I knew it was a better deal than competitors on the price tag. However, I wasn’t sure how it would respond in terms of image quality and usability. After using this lens for a few months, I was blown away by the results.
