Very sharp lens, has it's limitations of f5.6 at 300mm, but at $350 (after rebate) it's a steal. Outperformed Nikon 70-300Vc in almost everything I tested both for.
One of the two lenses that came with a package deal for my Canon EOS Rebel XTi DSLR. While I don’t use this lens as often as my short lens, this is my absolute favorite. I use it for the majority of my macro and darkroom shots, and obviously for plenty of wildlife and zoom-necessary photo...
Decent entry level extended zoom. Plenty sharp for consumer use. Take the MACRO feature with a grain of salt though. 4.9ft min focus and does NOT make this a macro lens by any stretch of the imagination. Smooth zoom ring though. Of the plastic zooms I have handled this one is decent.
Price/performance ratio can't be beat. Metal mount! Comes with lens hood that is reversible. Light lens with out feeling too cheap. Great for back yard bird/critter watching (within 30 feet). I've taken some full frame shots of squirrels that are very nice.
There are not too many. It could be a tad sharper, but then it would cost more. IT is very usable as is. I'm not going to say the speed is a weakness as you are buying a f4 lens. If you want to shoot low light go pay for a f2.8.
I have been especially pleased with this lens, but then again this is not my first Tamron, and I was extremely pleased with my last one. Why pay so much more for a Nikon when Tamron will achieve the same results.
The image quality and build quality on this lens are fantastic to say the least. The price is just right for a zoom range of this size, and the VC is top notch, I prefer it over my nikon VR II to be honest... This is an FX lens so there's no noticeable vignetting in my experience.
I was tossing up between this lens and the equivalent Nikon 70-300, read all the reviews and they came out pretty dead even and all of them but for $100 less I went with the Tamron. Now I haven't used the Nikon but I'm very happy with the Tamron. I'm using it on the Nikon d5300 and its awesome!
I researched this and other lenses to find a long zoom for my new Sony Alpha A57. I knew that the Sony lens line was limited and/or expensive, so I decided to check out other Sony Alpha mount lenses. I wanted a lens that would be very sharp, lightweight, and affordable.
I used it and keep using it with my D5200 Nikon and I love this product the best part is that I can adjust the sharpness using the exterior ring, I love this capability on this lens. I recommend it to those of us amateurish people that are learning the ropes.
I thought it had auto focus , but not luck there. I still use it and am learning more ways to do so. Having auto focus would me it easier to use and get better shots. The price was one good point for me.
Was clean and workes great am so happy
