Pros: Construction, optical quality, fixed opening, diaphragm ring in the Nikon version.

Cons: Delicate coating.

Opinion: I'm not one to do fleas every single pixel of the images, apart from the "peeling" of the coating, I have no complaints about this optics, precise and fast focus, at least for my needs, optically very good, the flare, although present in certain situations, is quite contained, not higher than that of other similar optics, but with the most famous brand, even if the wording APO is a little exaggerated, the chromatic aberrations are quite contained. I used it, and I still use it, in the most disparate situations, and it never betrayed me. The iris ring, in my version for Nikon, makes it usable on all cameras in this house, including analog. Compared to the Nikon 80-200 F/2.8 pump, which I used for a long time, optically does not disfigure at all, on the contrary, and the maf is much faster and quieter.

Pros: Construction, sharpness, starry at night, value for money, absent chromatic aberrations.

Cons: Use multiplied to the limit, loss of typical coating of sigma, af valid, but not very fast.

Opinion: is an excellent 70-200 cheap, my copy I took it semi destroyed to 240 euros, but still optically very efficient. The sharpness is good although of course at 2.8 does not break the hair (as it is honest), but closing is really defending very well and the diaphragm with 9 blades you see everything in the night and in the blurred, now is the best starry I've ever found in a lens. The construction is great, by tank, if the copy I had found I still went is a virtually immortal lens. It Has several limits in the multiplied use, considering its 2x up to 300mm is more or less acceptable closing, besides it becomes aberrant even closing a lot, to do something remotely acceptable you have to close to F11-F13. The AF is already ultrasonic, but it is not in step with the times, for more with time the clutches of the full time MF are kneading and can be dragged behind the outer ring together with the elements of the lens. It Can be a very valid alternative to a 70-300 paying no more than 300-350 euros for a specimen kept well, besides so much worth taking the OS version

Pros: 2.8 aperture, zoom and internal mf, very solid construction, fluid ferrules, good excursion of mf ring, sharpness, color tone, it is FF, speed and accuracy AF good.

Cons: unserviceable at minimum focus distance and 2.8 ingombroe weight (which is also considered 2.8 remains a beast), unusable with direct sun in the frame, even diaphragmed.

Opinion: Used only on the right coupled with Nikon d300. It 'a good deal because it has a good cost-performance ratio. My copy has the defects that I describe above, I do not know if it's common problems. Unlike what I read in other reviews mine has no problem back focus. Its advantage is the price: it costs as a Nikon 80-200 first original series but is more modern and HSM.

Pros: HSM Autofocus, aesthetics

Cons: Everything, zero contrast weight of stabilizer tropicalizzatornAssenza

Opinion: I had this zoom for two months, sold out of desperation, suffering from back focus weighs very heavy, although these lenses is normal, the sore point of this now optical dated and exceeded the quality of the mediocre, slow, often having the lenses untreated sufferers magenta casts, under the 125 second if you do not use a monopod is often risks camera shake, under daylight conditions works decently, although much advice Nikon rende.rnOttica coast sconsigliornrnVoto 5

Pros: f2.8 throughout the zoom range, price, speed AF.

Cons: Heavy (but with this type of optics is obvious), the coating loses color, heavy problems of back-focus, rings that rotate with respect to the contrary nikon but there becomes a habit.

Opinion: I had this light for a period of about 4 months and then I resold for a simple reason ... unsolvable problem of back-focus. At the time I had a Nikon D5100 so I could adjust the autofocus as I would now with the D7000. But despite the assistance has resulted in the problem I was not solved. Unfortunately, we must admit that as optical start to feel the years, in fact ensue type 3/4 new versions even if there is to admit that in fact aging technology is much slower than for example the SLR. Minimum distance of focusing too high (1.8 meter are very many and not realize it since the first shots). Undoubtedly low price now that with 300 euro you take home. Obviously to buy only if you are in "monetary shortage" and you have a DSLR where you can correct the problem of back-focus because from what I understand almost 70% of the models suffers. Needless to say, the absence of the stabilizer is felt but for the amount that it is insane to demand it. Vote7 for the ultrasonic motor and the price calculated for the fact that it is a fixed f2.8 (the Nikon motorized version is twice what af-s and if you're lucky three times). If I had another chance to buy it do not know if it wouldnt, right now I aim to nikon 80-200 or if its just the Tamron.
