Nick - Were you shooting in auto or manual setting?

I have the same lens and I just can't seem to get mine that crisp...I am mainly using the auto mode on a EOS Rebel XT

I was in shooting manual ... Ap setting with it all the way was super bright which helped

Looks like your in cam sharpening is cranked up pretty good as well (which is fine)

Yup Nikon d40....

the lens has no VR... it might be nice to have but on that day it was so bright it wouldn't have mattered

Tamron just put VR/IS on one of those super zooms by the way.

I like Tamron lenses, when you get a good one like Nick did they can be spectacular.

Awesome! I have that same lens and it's pretty funny, I always go back to it cause it takes great pics!

As far as other lenses, I second Umali go for the 50 mm 1.8 I just shot with my buddies and I am gonna go pick one up this weekend!

Nice pics with the new lens!

Sorry for the mini hi-jack......whats the deal with this 50mm 1.8 lens? I certainly like the price tag I see at B&H

Just a good all around lens for everyday purpose? Or is it primarily portrait that it's good for?

It's a fast prime lens with unusually good IQ given it's cost. I use mine for indoor shooting usually holidays where I can get by with room light and no flash. It's a good portrait lens on a 1.6X crop body given the "magnification" effect of the sensor crop.
