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: once it was value for money

Cons: on many examples of this lens breaks the diaphragm

Opinion: I bought this lens in 2015 just to have my first telephoto lens at the very honest figure of € 110, in the following two years I used it from time to time also managing to get some decent photos despite the qualitative compromises imposed by the price in light of which it would now be unfair to complain about the lack of stabilization, slow autofocus, chromatic aberrations of the plasticy consistency and various and possible. The only thing that I could not digest and that leads me years later to write this review although I would have many other things to review is that just finished the warranty period and after only a few hundred shots one day I start reading on the displays of all my SLR cameras 600d 100d and 6d mk2 the words "err 01 communication problems camera - lens. clean the lens contacts." In essence, the contacts were clean and the diaphragm had stopped working, first only on the focal length that went from about 180/200mm up to 300 and then on the entire extension of the zummata. Given that in a lens already not very bright and that imposes in the absence stabilizer very fast shutter speeds especially on apsc 1.6x I rarely went to close the aperture above 7.1, but currently once I had this problem it works only at full aperture, then starting from f4 to 70mm up to f5.6 on 300mm. In my opinion, this leads to an accentuation of the above, obvious and understandable chromatic aberrations. Searching on the various sites for an economic solution to this problem (so as not to continue to preserve something partially broken but it seems bad to throw away) I note meanwhile, that many specimens of this lens have had the exact same problem, that it is not even convenient to try to send it to someone who can repair it. I also realized that the price on amazon of the latest pieces produced until 2021 have reached the absurd figure of € 249. DON'T BUY IT. Not for that amount, really it would not be convenient even in the luck of finding the specimen to which the diaphragm does not break. Buy more, even Tamron but higher models, even spending a little more or at most buy it used for no more than € 70.

Pros: Comparing everything to the price this lens is more than decent.

Cons: Slow Af, Chromatic Stabilization, Chromatic Aberration, Sharpness

Opinion: Starting from the assumption that I am not an expert, this lens is accompanying me on my path of photographic growth. Good enough to become familiar with focal lengths of this kind; the absent stabilizer is a not indifferent obstacle, but I think it is necessary to be able to train to eliminate tremors and movements as much as possible (if you learn with this with the stabilizer it will be a walk). A big shame is the af, slow and noisy that often misses shooting opportunities. Good brightness all in all, seen and considered that it keeps f/4 up to 120mm if I am not mistaken. Be that as it may, I read a lot of rather harsh and heavy criticisms that I consider exaggerated given the price. It will not be the best as optics, it is true but for less than 100 euros from used (less than 200 from new), for a canvas, what did you expect? So, reasoning on quality price, I would like to give an 8. Obviously, if a person is looking for high performance he will not find them from this lens and you can not expect who knows what given the price (you can not want a ferrari and pay it 10,000 euros). On the other hand, this lens is great for learning to stay still and shoot at low times without a stabilizer.

Pros: Price

Cons: Slow AF - Chromatic Aberrations - Dark - Sharpness - Flare

Opinion: Purchased to practice with those focal lengths. Although it costs little, I would not buy it again, turning to better objectives. So much, because the same is practically unusable. It is very dark and difficult to use even in conditions of abundant light at the most extreme focal lengths, given the absence of stabilizer. It is not particularly sharp and chromatic aberration is almost always present. He suffers a lot from flares. The AF is slow and inaccurate, but given the age and the price of the lens I did not expect better. Not recommended.

Pros: Right focal width. Almost complete macro. Hood always available. Lightweight for focal length. Extraordinary price.

Cons: Qauasi chromatic aberrations always present (but simple to remove in PP). Not easy to use.

Opinion: I had this lens because I bought a Canon 5D Mark II with some lenses, including this one (in excellent condition). I think I've experimented with it embossing to try to understand it. At first I did not love it, on the contrary, then ... Let's start with the cons. You have to get used to AF. If you understand how it works (not being recent is not comparable to modern ones) you can handle it well in most situations. Sometimes it goes into trouble and here the manual is "smooth" enough to allow you an easy fire. Other serious defects I do not see. The brightness is in line with those of its cluster, the weight is light. While not excelling in photographic quality, most of the shots I've taken are decent/good/excellent by definition and colors. It has the Plus of turning into a macro with a max magnification ratio of 1:3.9. Of course, the CAs are always present or almost, but they are removed in a couple of clicks in PP. And we come to the strong point indeed very strong: the price. On the bay you pull it down between 50 and 100 euros. I find that at that price you will not find anything that allows you to have a zoom certainly not easy, agree, but that covers the average distances decently. Well of course you can buy another 70-300 f/4-5.6 like this but Canon L IS USM the performance is much better, but instead of 50 euros you have to pay it a thousand....
