Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Nikon F

"It is amazing for the price how crisp and clear the images are with this lens. Beside the ability to work in lower light and create nice out of focus back grounds with the 2.8. This is a must for anyone shoot portraits on a budget. The macro feature on this lens is very good as well." bhphotovideo.com
