The Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Lens features a popular and useful focal length range, a nice design, USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) AF and VC (Vibration Compensation) for a very affordable price .
For the first time, Tamron has incorporated an Ultrasonic Silent Drive, or USD, with full-time manual override in this zoom lens, making it a competitive technology with Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor, Canon’s Ultrasonic Motor (USM), and Sony’s Super Sonic wave Motor.
The Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC is surprisingly good optically. It is merely a little bit less sharp compared to my Nikon 300mm f/2.8 AF-S, stopped down to f/5.6. The Tamron does have more chromatic aberration, i.e. color fringing in light-to-dark transitions.
Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at Tamron's first lens to include both an Ultrasonic focusing motor and Vibration Compensation.
Very good optical performance, Good build quality, Ultrasonic drive, Effective vibration compensation system
Focusing a little slower than other silent focusing systems I've used.
Tailor-made for wildlife and sports shooters, this third-generation 70–300mm full-frame telezoom in Tamron’s SP line adds Vibration Compensation (VC) plus two innovations: an Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) focusing motor for near-silent AF, and an element of what Tamron calls XLD glass, a relatively...
This Tamron SP 70-300 XLD is fantastic! I see no vignetting and no chromatic aberration and quality is quite sharp. For the price, I don't believe you'll find a better lens.Yes, it's heavy. Yes, it's large. But what do you expect? It's quality.
Tamron has come a long way since my first lens from them back in the 60's. That lens was so soft in the corners I said I'd never buy another Tamron product, but Japanese cars weren't that great back then either, and look at them now. This Tamron 70-300mm VC lens does what I want it to do...
I've owned 2 of the canon version of this lens & was extremely disappointed in them past 150mm. This Tamron that replaced my Canon lens simply blows them away in sharpness.
This is the BEST option for someone not wanting to invest a lot of $$ on a lens in this zoom range. It has excellent image quality. The VC works excellent for 300mm hand held shots.
Not a macro, but then again I did not purchase for that use.
I have had this lens for about two years now and have been using it almost exclusively for wildlife photography. Sometimes I wish I had more reach, but unfortunately an extender cannot be used with this unless you want to sacrifice image quality. And trust me, you don't.
