Tamron 17-50mm SP AF XR Di II LD Lens For Canon
Tamron's 17-50mm lens is still quite fast, considering the zoom range and the price point. The f2.8 constant aperture will still produce a nice, defocused background, while the zoom range allows for more versatility over fixed wide angle lenses. The Tamron starts at a very wide 17mm but extends out to a nice 50mm. With a minimum focus distance of 10.6 inches, this lens can handle some macro-type shots as well. Weighing in at just under a pound, this Tamron won't add to much to your gear bag either.
