comment How does the Tamron AF 28-75mm f2.8 compare to Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM?
Thanks!! I usually try to use 50mm 1.4 when inside unless I take group photos. I find the focusing speed of 50mm 1.4 extremely fast when using central focus point

yeah...it is a difficult choice. I do shoot a lot outdoors as well and the extra reach may come in handy. It is worth extra $300? I am not sure

comment How to avoid shadows under the eyes when using bounce flash?
I actually agree with you. I am trying to avoid using direct flash, however the bounce mode creates shadows under the eyes which are much worse anything I get in the direct flash. Hopefully I can find a way to use bounce mode and avoid the shadows.

comment Should I buy a Canon 55-250mm lens or 70-300mm for my Rebel T3i?
I was facing exactly the same choice last week. I do not see myself using 70-300mm often so I did not want to pay a lot for something I would only use infrequently. I ended up getting Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD - only $330 with the rebate until June. I got it few days ago - pictures seem fine to me.
