[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] Aimed to satisfy the most demanding professionals and advanced amateur photographers, its enhanced optical design has multiple moving lens groups and features that adjust and compensate for a variety of conditions. Ultrasonic Motor (USM) technology and an internal focusing system enable silent, high speed autofocusing. A wide rubberized focusing ring and manual focusing capability in the autofocus mode provides maximum flexibility and ease of use. Key optical features include a replica aspherical lens element that minimizes distortion and a flare-cutting diaphragm that helps the lens maintain contrast in tough lighting conditions.

My lens is used (not much tho). New from bhphoto at $310. Make an offer.

    I just like the Tamron 28-75/2.8 better. Aside from the build quality typical of these consumer grade lenses, it is sharp and reasonably contrasty.

    well i have the 18-55mm EFS lense. image quality seems to be acceptable with the 18-55mm

    i dont really need the USM as i tend to manually focus 95% of the time, but am semi-unhappy with the focus ring on the 18-55mm. it's touchy, choppy, and can be easily jossled out of focus ( loose ), but i have gotten used to it.

    so would the image quality be substantially better than the 18-55mm?

    i'm not a lense expert
