What exactly is a "light sensitive" lens?  I don't think I've seen that term in this context before.
He means small f number...

Small f number, or in other words a high aperture, allowing you to shoot with lower iso or exposure time.

Sorry, English is not my native language. Sometimes I may express myself not so clear. But RPT and Florianbieler.de explained it correct. Thanks for that!

The tamron has a 5 or 6 year warrantee, it's almost not worth worrying about a manufacturing defect here and there you'll discover it long before the period is up. I'm thinking the tamron will be my next purchase once it comes down in price. I have trouble paying 1300 for a third party lens.
