Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II LD Aspherical [IF] Autofocus Lens for Pentax Digital Cameras

You Pay: $499.00
Product Highlights
  • Zoom Super Wide Angle

The Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II LD Aspherical [IF] is a lightweight, compact, and fast standard zoom lens designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras. The focal length of this lens is equivalent to approx. 26-75mm in 35mm format.

This lens offers an f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the entire zoom range, to ensure stress-free photographic shots at all focal lengths and distances. Additionally, a broader photographic expression through the use of faster shutter speeds as a result of the maximum aperture offers enhanced photographic pleasure.

Note! Di-II lenses cannot be used with digital SLR cameras using image sensors that are larger than that of an APS-C size imager (e.g. 1D series), or with 35mm film SLR cameras.

Optimized for Digital SLR
The use of XR (Extra Refractive Index) glass optimizes the overall distribution of optical power, and also reduces various aberrations to the absolute minimum while achieving remarkable compactness. In addition, suitable positioning of two hybrid aspherical elements serves to maintain imaging performance and to shorten and compress the entire optical system.
LD Glass
An LD (Low Dispersion) glass element is used to accomplish effective compensation of on-axis and lateral chromatic aberrations, a critical factor for enhancing optical quality in digital photography, in order to achieve outstanding optical performance over the entire zoom range.
Enhanced Peripheral Illumination
Peripheral light fall-off is minimized when compared with that of conventional lenses for film cameras, so images are uniformly bright from the center to the periphery.
Internal Surface Coating to Reduce Ghosting and Flare
By employing "Internal Surface Coatings" (i.e., multiple-layer coatings on cemented surfaces of plural elements) and multiple-layer coating technology on ordinary elements, ghosting and flare due to the reflections that occur when light enters through the front element and reflections caused by the imagers themselves are reduced to the absolute minimum.
Zoom Lock Mechanism
The Zoom Lock prevents unwanted barrel extension when carrying the lens/camera combination.

    Great lens, but may not really be f/2.8

    I already owned the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, but I wanted to supplement my kit with a wider angle zoom. I found that the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 took very sharp pictures with great contrast and color, even wide open.

    However, I noticed that when compared to my 28-75mm, the 17-50mm was producing darker pictures at identical exposure settings. In my in-studio high-key portrait photography, my subject would be dark and my white background would not longer be properly blown out (overexposed) when I replaced the 28-75mm with the 17-50mm but kept the settings the same.

    I also compared my Pentax 18-55mm lens, and found that it produced identical exposure to the 28-75mm, but the 17-50mm was darker than both. After further evaluation under controlled conditions, I found that the 17-50mm performs more like f/3.3 wide open. The problem become worse as aperture decreased. Wide open it was about half a stop underexposing, and at f/10 it was a full stop.

    I think that the aperture is being set too small, resulting in a lens that is not as fast (bright) as it should be. I returned it, since I do a lot of available-light and indoor photography, and I need an f/2.8 lens to perform like an f/2.8 lens.

      Comments about Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II LD Aspherical [IF] Autofocus Lens for Pentax Digital Cameras:

      They say: don't get your hopes up too high, and they are quite right on that.
      I had really high hopes for this lens, but the initial impressions are less than stellar. K-x is the current body for the lens.

      Let's start with the bad:
      1) constant underexposure by about 1EV.
      2) "purple/yellow fringing" is quite pronounced
      3) slightly lifeless color rendition at times. "plasticky" probably would be a good word. Will try it on a different body, maybe they'll get along better.

      not everything is bad, though:
      1) it's sharp
      2) bokeh is nice and smooth wide open
      3) AF works fast, although at times it requires refocusing; I have no idea on what exactly the focus locks on. luckily that doesn't happen often.
      4) other reviewers sometimes bash the build quality; can't complain about that

      I did a stupid thing and filled in the warranty card before taking this lens out on a more serious "field trip", so I can't exactly return it anymore, but I'm going to send it to Tamron to get the underexposure at least looked into it (fingers crossed, it will be fixed).

      It has potential, obviously, and maybe I just wasn't lucky, maybe it has something to do with "made in china" imprinted on the body of the lens, maybe it doesn't, but I think - you might be able to do better than this. I will keep playing with it for a while, maybe it will "grow on me", but somehow I regret [a bit] not spending the extra $$$ on 16-50/2.8. OTOH, for the money, there probably isn't better fast zoom out there for Pentax. Except 17-70, perhaps, if you are OK with f/4.

      I can't exactly "recommend it for a friend". That friend has to check it out by him/herself, maybe it will work, maybe it won't. Depends on the requirements.

        I use this lens for portraiture. The zoom assures I don't miss anything while allowing me to crop in camera. The viewable area on my camera is a little tighter cropped than the final image. I usually use prime lends but this is a nice alternative.

              There are some dust particles at both ends, that should not affect IQ.

              It was my second copy. I exchanged my first copy due to bad front focusing problems (I had to dial a -10 in the AF Fine Adjustment page to make it focus reasonably). The second copy was even worse. Out of frustration, I returned it for a refund.

                  Received the new Tamron 17-50mm for Pentax as an early Christmas present few days ago, but was disappointed right away with the first photo I took with it. Pictures that I took with Tamron was extremely soft so I had to put it aside and put my Pentax kit lens back on for few days. Yesterday I did some controlled testing with the Tamron and was able to confirm that it has severe front focusing issue. Hopefully I can send it back to BHPhotos for another copy after the holidays.

                    I am so [pleased with this lens it is now my primary lens - Love the fact that it will keep at F/2.8 when used at the full 50mm focal length. Very sharp and worth the weight (which is not all that heavy for a f/2.8 lens).

                      I bought this lens instead of the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 because I thought it was sharper... what a deception.
                      This lens is not sharp and it's construction is terrible, it's weak and mine have a lots of spots of dust inside and are impossible to remove.

                      I wanted other Tamron lenses, but now I'm very disappointed with this brand.

                      I recommend you to bought the Sigma one or the Pentax.

                        I now find myself keeping this lens on my camera more than the 18-200mm Tamron. Sharp images and so nice to be able to keep the f stop at 2.8 when zooming out to almost 50mm. Very versatile, good buy for the $$ and not too big-

                        A good lens, with a fast constant 2.8 aperture. Mounted on a K-5, it focuses very accurately. Color rendition is good. It is a bit noisier than the Pentax 16-50 2.8 DA, but without the SDM worries.

                          I use the lens for indoor existing light photography of my kids. I was torn between this lens and a more inexpensive fast prime. I find it to be plenty fast, and I'm really glad I have the versatility of the zoom.

                          Comments about Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II LD Aspherical [IF] Autofocus Lens for Pentax Digital Cameras:

                          I already owned the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, but I wanted to supplement my kit with a wider angle zoom. I found that the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 took very sharp pictures with great contrast and color, even wide open.

                          However, I noticed that when compared to my 28-75mm, the 17-50mm was producing darker pictures at identical exposure settings. In my in-studio high-key portrait photography, my subject would be dark and my white background would not longer be properly blown out (overexposed) when I replaced the 28-75mm with the 17-50mm but kept the settings the same.

                          I also compared my Pentax 18-55mm lens, and found that it produced identical exposure to the 28-75mm, but the 17-50mm was darker than both. After further evaluation under controlled conditions, I found that the 17-50mm performs more like f/3.3 wide open. The problem become worse as aperture decreased. Wide open it was about half a stop underexposing, and at f/10 it was a full stop.

                          I think that the aperture is being set too small, resulting in a lens that is not as fast (bright) as it should be. I returned it, since I do a lot of available-light and indoor photography, and I need an f/2.8 lens to perform like an f/2.8 lens.

                            I am an advanced amateur who uses the lens for travel, portraiture, landscape, and candid people shots.

                            I use this lens as my "walk-around" lens. It has replaced my kit lens.

                            It has good flare resistance for a zoom of this range, but not as good as I would like.

                            Comments about Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II LD Aspherical [IF] Autofocus Lens for Pentax Digital Cameras:

                            I've purchased this product as a replacement for a normal range kit lens and it is more than satisfactory. It's quite sharp - DXO shows a maximum lpm of 51, which is excellent. This non-VC version for Pentax and Sony sensor-based image stabilization seems sharper than the newer VC version in many different tests. I found that macro range sharpness was also more than adequate. Contrast seems very good as well. I also considered Sigma's new 17-50mm lens, which may be somewhat sharper, but the extra bulk and weight dissuaded me.

                            Comments about Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II LD Aspherical [IF] Autofocus Lens for Pentax Digital Cameras:

                            First things first, let's get the good out of the way. It's razor sharp, even wide open. If that's all that matters to you in a lens, stop, do not pass Go! and buy this lens. Bokeh is pleasing for its price range as well.

                            OK, now onto the quirkiness. AF is tempermental, that is to say, sometimes it is responsive, other times less so. I would say AF speed is average at best. Although I don't have any BF or FF issues. And yes, it's noisy, but that's to be expected.

                            What's really odd is exposure consistency. It underexposes consistently .3 EV without flash, .7 at 17mm with flash, and 1.3 EV at 50mm with flash. The good news is that this is totally consistent. It's just annoying.

                            Build is acceptable, but nothing to write home about. Manual AF is not steller, but it works just fine.

                            Upshot: it's a compromise lens. Great price, great optics, weird performance, average build. As long as you know what you're getting yourself into, I recommend it.
