positive:For cost? Everything..It is so good so IT is little hard to understand it don't have higher prise.
negative:It could have being 17-70 .. Then it would be close to perfect. But 17-50 work anyway..
comment:I wright so bad English. So I cant say so much in writing.

But if you need a good good allround lense for a nice price I can only give my best recommendation for this Tamron 17-50 f2,8.. It will serve you and give you nice photos with good sharp (even in F2,8 !) and nice colors.. I really really like this lense...
