I'm not familier with the Tamron 28-80 you mentioned, but wonder if you meant the 28-75, with the constant F/2.8? That's the one I'd reccomend, if you want a great walk-around lens. I love mine, as do many others here. Not too pricy, worth a look. And yes, do go to a show and pop it on the camera for a test, see how you like it in your hands.
THIS is the one I have now. It's okay, but I'd like something a little faster and with a little better minimum focus distance. Still looking around, but the 28-75 is one I have considered.
