Pros: Usability, as a telephoto zoom package; image quality; effective vibration control; Price; Build/cost ratio; decent lenshood

Cons: Focus isn't the quickest;

Opinion: Update: I've replaced the old model with a brand new exact same one (apparently, the buyer of the old lens had it repaired and a loose wire inside was responsible for the hit and miss VC fault, so not necessarily a fault with the design) and upgraded the D7000 to the 24mp no alias filter D7100 and the images are now even sharper! Review: My 5 year old model has produced over 25,000 images and it still is THE zoom I use for most telephoto applications. The VC function has now become hit and miss, now, the only sign of wear it shows and if I were to replace it (not worth cost of repair), it would be with the exact same model. Being a Nikon user, I cannot use the Canon L, which I understand is the only lens of the same spec that competes with this Tamron. And why not the Nikkor 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 VR, that would surely be my target? Well, I had one of those and it broke quite quickly. The Nikon did display excellent contrast and sharpness at lower focal lengths and in the centre of the frame and its VR is quicker to activate and quieter in operation. This makes the Nikon better than this Tamron for action and wildlife, where central image is more important. The Tamron SP however, is the better all round lens for travel, architecture and landscapes. The VC, once activated (takes a short time) literally holds its subject like glue. The distortion is much less than the Nikon (the Nikon had such pincushion at 300mm, you could see it in the viewfinder!) and the plentiful sharpness is more even and across the frame. Even the so difficult 300mm at f5.6 produces a very acceptable image - I'd be happy to shoot at this to isolate my subject - and often do. It won't be as sharp as a fixed focal, of course, the contrast a little less too, I find f9 to be the sweet aperture here, f8 at lower focal lengths. but in the everyday practicality, the Tamron is good to use and one can have confidence in it. Of good solid weight, it can be handheld with confidence, though if I have a criticism, the rather front weighted bulk on camera means it can be difficult to use on a tripod, especially in the vertical position. It's not especially easy to use in manual focus but SO much easier than the Nikon, which had an awfully thin and awkwardly placed focus ring. And if you think that such lenses are only used with AF, the true landscaper will often find very low light and low contrast subjects, such as after sunset. With the D7000, AF can find and lock onto subjects to a surprising degree but when it loses it, it annoyingly goes through the entire focus path and you have to interrupt the shot, and reset the focus manually and your subject is gone. But then, that can happen with almost all lenses, after all. Lastly, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could use my Sigma EX 1.4x APO teleconverter with it! And with pretty fair results, giving a 560mm equivalent foccal length on DX, even if I do choose to use f9 or smaller and best of all, the VC works then too, reigning in all that huge potential for severe camera shake. Has to be as near to 10/10 in practical terms, especially when the modest price is concerned. If nothing else, this lens has been the 5th most used optic by Juza users for as long as I've been on the site myself - we can't all be wrong!

Pros: just the right wight and fill of the lens ....the VC is great but tricky i will explain later the glass used in this lens is great. and a 6 year warranty

Cons: variable aperture F/4--5.6 so it is dim but you get use to it. i wish tamron would just made it a F/4 only .... shooting at high iso sometimes in order to keep your shutter speeds up because its tack sharp at F/8 thru F/11

Opinion: I think for the price its a steal!!!! i know it came out in 2010 but it is still a great lens to have in 2015 do a internet search you hear a lot of great reviews for it now with that being said here is my issue with this lens now it might be just me with these issue . i have a nikon D7000 i use back button focus but when i use this lens the VC does not work sometimes i have to ease down the shutter button then let it kick in then fully press it down to snap a photo.i was getting so frustrated so i decide to switch back to normal use where you half way press down the shutter button to bring it in to focus then full pressed to snap a photo... when it was like this the lens work great no issue no problems with the VC it work normal and great the only other issue i have is shooting high iso i am use to shooting with fast zooms and prime and not having to use high iso this is my first time shooting over 1000 iso. so that was something i had to get use to so you have to know just how high you can go before noise sets in and set your auto iso that is how i use this lens i set my auto iso at 1/100 sec and auto iso at 100 to 2000 iso and so far my normal iso has been between 100 to 1600 iso it depends on if you are shooting in the shade or in the sun. i also use spot metering or center metering so if you just got this lens take some time and learn what works best for your camera and you.its a great lens but i had to learn how to use it in order to get the best out of it. i guess thats what i get from using primes so much lol

Pros: Price and stabilizer, stabilizer and price. price. stabilizer.

Cons: Talking about defects, considering the ratio/quality price, means wanting to look for the hair in the egg.

Opinion: I press to be a simple photoamer who photographs for himself and for the pleasure of hearing "click" after each shot. I use it on Nikon D5600 (APS-C) and have a great time. I do not dwell on repeating the well-known (and a few) small ones that many have already emphasized (I call them in because "defects", given the price, seems excessive to me); I would like to say a few words, however, about the stabilizer: it seems to see a still image in the crosshairs! At 300mm I was able to achieve more than acceptable results even with a time of 1/30.

Pros: Stabilizer, autofocus, price

Cons: Weight, some difficulty with little light

Opinion: I have been using it for a long time especially for aeronautical spotting, given the price has given me several satisfactions with excellent shots. In poor light it is a bit difficult but I would say that it fully meets my needs. great purchase that definitely paid off. It loses a little sharpness above 250mm.

Pros: Value for money, Stabilizer and Price

Cons: Weight, sharpness that drops over 200mm

Opinion: This lens has accompanied me for 5 years on my former 650D and as far as it costs I can say that it is a really good lens in value for money, obviously if you start comparing to canon L series optics or superior optics of other brands, then the difference is there and you see. Personally I used it in day and night landscaping and also for my son's football matches and he never missed a beat, despite the slowness of the 650D, the rows always workable and sharp up to 200/220mm, as well as then you lose quality. Note TOP is the stabilizer that is phenomenal really, guarantees what is written, 3/4 stop definitely, otherwise good yield as mentioned, also the typical colors of the tamron lenses and also the speed, stabilizer apart from that when it is active takes a few seconds to start. I sold it only and exclusively for the 70-200 f/4 canon.
