I am looking to get this lens in the future and if anybody has used it or had experience with it. Any pros cons?

I have never used this one, superzooms are usually a compromise at best.

I have used and owned the Tamron 28-75 constant f2.8. I was very pleased with it except for a bizarre tendency to over expose 1.5 stops, only on flash exposures(on Nikon).

The reviews on the web are all highly complimentary and I would agree; except for noted caveat. It is an excellent, sharp, fast, low cost alternative to the Nikon 24-70, or Canon alternative.

What a lens for a wedding or any other use! Sorry I don't have experience with this lens, but I do own a 100-400 Tamron, and it's tack sharp!

All in ones are a compromise, but it boils down to what you can afford.
Tamron makes great glass though, I own the 28-75 F/2.8 and it is very sharp. As is the Tamron 17-50 F/2.8
The issue with all in one wide to telephoto lenses is you tend to lose sharpness and IQ.

Looks like a good walking around lens. Will have to disagree with Jim for wedding use unless it is afternoon sun in the middle of summer outdoors. Standing in the back of a dark church with no flash allowed ... this lens won't do you a whole lot of good - especially on the long end.

Own the Di version of the 17-50f/2.8 and it is a great little lens and makes an excellent backup or second shooter kit.

Purchased the Di II version of the 28-75 f/2.8 when my Nikkor 28-70 f/2.8 needed service. Very slow focusing, even in "ok" light. Returned it immediately and got the newer Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8. Never looked back.
