This lens is the best! It focuses very fast and has excellent bokeh. Built very well too. I use this with my Sony a77ii. Nice deep lens hood which is great thing to have!

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 had an older model Tamron Zoom Telephoto AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom for many years that worked well on my Minolta Maxxum 5 35mm, my Sony alpha 100, Sony Alpha 200, and my most recent Alpha 77 II. I took, what I would estimate, around 10,000 shots with it and recently quit working.

I use this tele-macro lens for 95% of the shots I take on my SONY a65. I rarely leave the house without my camera. Just about daily, I try to get in a drive or hike to shoot nature shots and wildlife.

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.

This lens is plenty sharp for photography with adequate lighting (daylight or flash photography). I used these a few times when I went to the zoo. It is great to take pictures of animals from far away, but you just have to make sure that there is enough light hitting the subject.

This lens is advertised to use for indoor/outdoor sports, portraits etc., but it is not that great for low light and fast moving objects. It really is a 5.6 lens, so it requires bright sunlight or you have to increase ISO substantially. Or use a tripod.
