Port of Toronto -- Canon 1D Mark IIn & Tamron SP Adpatall II 35-80mm f2.8-3.8. Larger.
I am really surprised how good this lens is. I don't normally like zoom lenses, especially this kind of awkward focal length on non-full frame cameras. But, the SP moniker is not just a marketing ploy, at least not with this one. Besides the very sharp images with good microcontrast when stopped down a bit, one of the cool features of this lens is the very close focusing capabilities, down to 0.27 meters at 80mm, and at a 1:2.5 magnification ratio. This is almost at the macro territory. For a lens that costs so little used, it's indeed a bargain. You do need to look out for loose rubber focusing/zoom grip skins. I had to replace my rubber grip on the focusing ring with one from another lens.
