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: Phantasmagoric preZZo from new for the product, lightness, friendly use.

Cons: Except for the bayonet, plastic dominates unchallenged.

Opinion: At this price, it's no wonder you don't have knockout optics on your hands. But it's also true that Tamron's nearest upgrade makes the wallet open three times, so I think the quality research talk is avoidable, but reading some comments it seems that the company has produced total crap, but it is not. Then, just look at the photos taken below, to get an idea, of how important are the active neurons of the taker of the photo, of the euros paid for the lens that will reflect our image. Personally I am satisfied by the use that I make especially on the track for Formula One, where in Monte Carlo in principal mode, I find myself shooting in often prohibitive conditions (in the midst of the people, among the protective nets, transennial, in the middle of the bushes on the hill, among the moorings of the yachts) and I must have a light equipment, easily maneuverable and free of supercazzole and that if even takes a shot , all right anyway, because the blow doesn't make him take it to me... The speed of zooming is not great but it is also true that in these years of photos lost at the end of the accounts were few, the brightness will not be excellent, but I repeat in my case I often shoot in the time range from 12.00 to 15.00 and those times I used it for some portraits from afar, it did not behave so bad as to shout at the scandal. A plus is definitely the possibility of the Macro option, I have used it a few times, but it is pleasant and already at a meter it is appreciated... I have a picture of a hornet at the Aeolians for example.

Pros: Poor lens goal. They are sold at an affordable price.

Cons: Scary, indecent mechanics. slow and difficult focus, when it works and that is very rarely.

Opinion: I bought two of these goals, completely the same , I paid them a discreet price, but they are completely useless. Despite a repair they are equally at the same level ie do not go into focus . I'm going to throw them in the trash can which is their ideal location. It seems absurd to me that they build things like that.

Pros: Price and lightness.

Cons: Nothing (with such a performance/price ratio).

Opinion: Absolutely exceptional lens at such a price. Bought new with 5 years of original Polyphoto warranty and free UV filter, from Conti Supplies a few years ago to 109 euros. Very pleasant to use for its lightness and versatility also as a macro. It always gives more than dignified images in any context (as long as you are able to photograph it is obvious). Mounted on Pentax KS-1 (APS-C 20MP) gives a light and powerful set. I've printed 30x45 and 50x70 magnificagnions on ultralight material (Piuma) and classic 30x45 prints on truly spectacular Fuji photo paper, with minimal postproduction. Viva Tamron!!

Pros: it's cheap! (end of pros)

Cons: Almost everything...

Opinion: I marvel at how an industry like TAMRON persists in producing and selling a bad lens like this. Handling it feels like you're dealing with a toy camera! Built entirely of plastic (very light) apart from the bayonet which is aluminum (neancho milled well!). Apart from this which could be a personal opening, the quality of the photos is really poor: sharpness under the sufficiency at all openings; sci-fi chromatic rendering with absurd colors when compared to the real; autofocus to forget, even in optimal light conditions; difficult manual focus, due to the approximate construction of the dial, which suffers from very large yolths; macro function not to even consider. Overall it barely adds enough for the price that is toy. From my point of view it can only be purchased to match the cheapest sLLrs to use in those situations where there is a real risk of losing equipment.
