Pros: Cost, Performance up to 200mm

Cons: Lightness (yes, though that might be a plus to many), Performance at 300mm, fiddly and awkward 'macro' switch

Opinion: Tamron's evergreen budget FX telezoom and with the low price in mind, it is not as bad as you might think! Tamron have a long history of being able to produce pretty decent zooms of around this length, or shorter, such as the hugely popular Adaptall 80-210mm f3.8-4. I now have this lens' current sister SP version with VC, which is the best in class but for a few months, I owned this very light Di lens, which I understood even includes some plastic lenses inside. But, being used to a much heavier Nikkor 70-300mm VR (which I dropped and destroyed, hence the lack of a tele zoom) and without any form of stabilisation, this little Tamron is so skittish, it was almost impossible to get steady shots in all but the brightest conditions. One got used to these characteristics of course and I was able to get some very decent shots in London over several days, including a day out at London Zoo. The sunlit architectural shots, especially at shorter focal lengths were very sharp and undistinguishable from other lenses of this type but beyond 200mm or so and in less contrasty light, the performance suffered, though naturally stopping down helped. The close up feature, via the fiddly switch, which will not allow you to follow focus from close up to infinity, ie, tracking a flying away butterfly, as you have to stop, flick the switch and then reframe again - so not good, but consider this as a bonus and not a reason to buy this lens. So, as others have said, a good little budget lens that is good for normal 'snaps' and to start off with. You soon will find its faults and want to upgrade but don't dismiss as a complete waste of time. The competitors seem to be Sigma's cheap effort, but that is more expensive, or Nikon's DX 55-300mm, with VR, which is more expensive, has VR but is DX only but is probably better performing at longer lengths. There's also Nikon's basic 'G' lens at a similar price to this Tamron. I've not used or handled either the Sigma or either of the Nikons mentioned, so cannot speak with authority. 7/10

Pros: Little or nothing but the price

Cons: Construction quality, af.

Opinion: Purchased at the dawn of my photographic experience, but used very little. It's really hard to get noteworthy photos out. It is clear, however, that for that price we cannot expect who knows what photographic quality. A lot, a lot of plastic that gives the touch a poor feeling. The lack of stabilization will make it difficult to take home shots of moving subjects which is a bit frustrating. I found it useful only in the portrait field where it gave some small satisfaction. AF also underperforming. To buy if you want to practice with low-priced pushes, but if you enter this photo segment you will surely veer on to something else. Already the stabilized Tamron itself is something else, but it also costs more than twice as much.

Pros: good paperweight

Cons: weight comparable to the same focal points but with stabilization, low light, slow autofocus and noisy engine, plastic everywhere, chromatic aberrations and vignettes at every focal and every opening

Opinion: this was in my spite my first reflex lens, purchased in 2005 new and used on Canon 3000N first and then on 1000D and 90D, it never satisfied me, indeed I was always disappointed, the project I find old and pasty, brightness absent at every opening and every focal point, not to mention its autofocus engine , slow with ring and very noisy and not precise engine, the weight then is a record thing to be a plasticone, for some years now I have been using it as a paperweight since it is the only possible and common sense use that this optics can have

Pros: Interesting goal, unsurpassed price quality.

Cons: Considering the price nothing relevant.

Opinion: I bought this lens for Canon, using it on my Sony 6500 with the adapter. Results achieved more than I would have expected, managing to shoot at very low times thanks to the stabilization of Sony that manages to stabilize even the goal. An excellent combination for the owners of the stabilized Sony and for the icing also the macro and five years warranty offered by the house by registering. bought on Amazon 134€.

Pros: Price, semi functionality - macro, focal range both APS - C and FF

Cons: af performance but especially in AF it is not possible to adjust the focus manually.

Opinion: I bought this lens when I started photographing, I used it mainly for birdlife and macro seeds but it was always she who introduced me to landscape detail photography. In fact, its focal range, once mounted on APS - C, becomes such as to allow you to approach bird life, but still allows you to approach a kind of inspired landscape photography. Compared to a 70- 300 Nikon or Canon, which cost 400 euros more than mine, the cheap Tamron sins in some things. First of all there is no stabilizer, in fact at 450 mm equivalent you can not go below 1/500 of a second and also it is also very difficult to frame the scene well with all those vibrations. Then we have the achromatic essence, which at 300 mm f5.6 makes itself felt enough, so much so that I immediately noticed, despite being inexperienced. The construction is very plastic, but is acceptable everywhere except in the AF/MF switch. Precisely the latter is the worst flaw of the goal, in fact being the AF rightly very slow (but sometimes precise) being able to adjust the fire manually would have totally changed the experience of use, especially in bird life. While as far as the photographic look is concerned, the price difference for me is not justified. The photos coming out of this glass are not of high quality, but at good f8, acceptable if at 300 mm. Personally with this lens I took some of the photos I like the most, including a jay with prey, taken at 450 mm equivalent, high ISO and f5.6, which stands out for colors and shades. I sold it when I bought the Tamron 70 - 200 2.8 LD, but I regret it, in fact it is a good alternative to the latter when I need to mount on FF a lens that allows me to cover the entire landscape in the medium to long focal on some excursions.
