: I am looking to purchase a Canon Rebel 2000. One retailer sells it with the Canon 28/80 lens another sells it with the Tamron 28/80 lens claiming that the Tamron is a superior lens. What do you think?
: Thanks

Assume that you are planning to get a good camera for long period use, i suggest Nikon instead of Canon because Nikon's optics are better than Canon (not all model, but most). Canon even use non-glass type lens for the middle lens group to reduce weight to gain higher focusing speed, which may reduce the quality of your photo; and the coating will fade after sometime. Try more expensive range of Canon lens if you still want to get a Canon camera. Tamron manufactures good optics, choose their higher end and you won't be disappointed.
