comment:Fed up of seeing comments that Tamron lenses feel and look plasticky...if they're made of plastic what else are they going to feel and look like, doh! Very few, if any, lenses in this price range are manufactured in any other material and personally I'm more interested in the quality of the photographs they produce than the look and feel.

For the money this lens beats the opposition hands down
