Pros: Sharpness, price, focus, stabilizer to be scary

Cons: Portraits a little difficult in the late afternoon, heavy

Opinion: This Tamron is my first Tele, I consider myself very satisfied with my purchase since I can use it for both 70mm portraits and for photos of details at higher distance, it has a really impressive sharpness for what it costs and I would recommend it to any start of photography... It is inconvenient to use the lens with the paralight mounted in reverse but above all he noticed a trend of colors to red when I go to shoot in situations of little light.

Pros: Sharpness in general, ridiculously priced, awesome stabilizer

Cons: Photo A little "flat" (in post it solves everything), autofocus not very fast

Opinion: I've used it/I'm using it a lot, it has a stellar price/quality ratio since I found it new on Amazon at less than €300. Good construction. It has an impressive stabilizer that allows you to get hand-held shots free even at 1/40 second to 300 mm: it almost seems that the camera stops in mid-air! Crisp from f/7.1 down, sharp even at F/4, not to cut your eyes but what do you expect? Towards the 300mm softens a bit, but just a negligible amount (at least in my case): I always managed to get very satisfying shots at 300mm. The photos are a bit flat as I specified above, mainly because this is a zoom lens, but this is not a problem for those shooting in RAW, as you can make the shots more "full-bodied" in post production. Finally the autofocus is not the fastest and often "goes hunting", ie you lose and begins to go back and forth looking for the right point. But they are all details, for a price so you can stand this and more!

Pros: Cost of the used, seemingly solid construction

Cons: I associate myself with those who affirm the decline in definition after the 250 mm focal

Opinion: I expected better. I certainly still have little or no experience with this lens, but having compared it with my old Nikkor 300 Ai s ED, it shows a disappointing definition. But I bought it for the practicality and the stabilizer, as well as for the autofocus, and on that I do not discuss. I will use the Nikkor 300 when I can afford the use of the tripod.

Pros: Exceptional stabilizer, excellent optical rendering at almost all focal lengths, fast and accurate autofocus, great value for money.

Cons: Sharpness not excellent at 300mm

Opinion: I think this is the best value for money zoom ever. It has a really high performance stabilizer, an optical rendering and really good sharpness (except at 300mm and at full aperture), the autofocus is fast, precise and silent. Anyone who wants to enter the world of zoom should not get away this goal, much better than the version from 100 and a few euros (does its duty eh, but the difference is abysmal). I really struggled to find flaws in this lens, except the already mentioned softness at the extreme focal lengths. Definitely recommended, it is one of the first lenses that you have to buy to enlarge your outfit.

Pros: Excellent value for money, sharpness (loses something just at 300mm, but at F/8-F/10 still good returns), versatility, excellent stabilizer

Cons: Hard to use it with hood mounted on the contrary (it's a cons?!), autofocus a little slow (with moving subjects, especially if small, it takes luck!)

Opinion: Purchased used in excellent condition at a very advantageous price as upgrade of the old Canon 100-300 USM (not is), compared to which is another planet. Images much sharper and contrastate, good brightness, excellent stabilizer (I have fairly firm hand, but I managed to shoot at 300mm to 1/30 without any blur, with the old Canon I dreamed of it!). Already good to TA, it improves further by closing a little the diaphragm (the best at F/10). AF slow with small subjects, even in light conditions not exaggeratedly critical I happened to "lose" a shot because it did not focus on time the subject in rapid passage (avifauna especially), but being an amateur, was not then this great problem ( With larger and/or slower subjects, no problem). Obvious that a Canon 100-400 II is further another planet, but compared to spending, I am fully satisfied with the purchase and I recommend it to everyone. For the price to which it is used, I think it is difficult to find better. Good Tamron!

Pros: Cost, weight, footprint, Diametero filters

Cons: A little soft over 250 mm

Opinion: I read quite questionable opinions. It will be 8/10 years that I use the lens in question and I consider it one of the best lenses in relation to cost/performance. How do you say it is cumbersome.... heavy and/or missing bracket? Boh is a 70/300.... compact and lightweight lens. Long Lens hood (but Xche is a flaw?!) and Af fast. Lens that I carry always behind very often in place of the 70/200 2.8 that many times it is too short and since I do landscape those 100 mm more serve as well (which does not exploit the 2.8 instead) I recommend the minimum use to f 8-9 x increase the sharpness OT Very slow..... buy it! Very curious to try the 100/400 always Tamron but definitely will anke this a great lens

Pros: It seems to me great value for money.

Cons: Maybe the weight? Construction?

Opinion: I have a Nikon D5100 camera (previously I had Canon 5d and Ob. EF 70-300 USM IS very good) I would buy the Tamron. Looking at the images posted seems to me to be very good value for money. Many write leaking to 300 mm well! If the leak is the one I see is a very good lens among other ultrasonic and stabilized F/4-5.6! For the crop on APS-C I would have more focal length, maybe all in all better.. I accept advice. Thank you.

Pros: Excellent value for money, effective stabilization, good build quality always in relation to the price.

Cons: Over the 200 mm decreases the definition.

Opinion: The success of this optics is closely linked to the purchase price. In Casa Canon There are qualitatively superior solutions but you have to be available to spend more. The Canon offer is still interesting and, in my personal opinion, is to be preferred. That said, I love the wide angles and fixed focal lengths and I use it sporadical, I have not applied my theory and I bought it new to less than three hundred euros. The money is worth them all and knowing the limits you learn to minimize the flaws. The rest has already been widely said.

Pros: stabilizer, focus, Price

Cons: Sharpness to TA, jar effect

Opinion: I kept this lens in outfit for a winter for photos to Wildlife. I found a very good and accurate stabilizer even if the battery of the machine suffers slightly. Not too large even if the lens hood is long enough. Zoom ring almost unusable with hood mounted on the contrary while the ring of the MAF always at Hand. I cannot give opinions for portraiture as it is not a field I know sufficiently to give a reliable opinion. The low price, especially of the used one that is easily found, makes this tele a lens absolutely to try.

Pros: Price, compactness, sharpness in general, incredible stabilizer.

Cons: For me, in relation to the purchase price, no one. If you claim sharpness from the series L better not to get too many illusions.

Opinion: Exceptional lens. If you want compactness and an extended focal range you need to turn to a zoom lens, if you also want it economical I think this Tamron represents a best Buy in its market range. Paid 250 euros on Amazon, new and under warranty for 5 years (only for the first buyer) has served me faithfully for two and a half years, finding space in the camera bag without major problems and not giving particularly in the eye when mounted. The construction is good, though not at the level of a Canon L-series, and by a feeling of robustness. Used on Canon 450d, 5d and 6d I found a big difference in yield between APS-C and FF; On the reduced size for me the quality was not satisfying while on FF the image quality for me was more than good at all focal lengths. It must be said, however, that the 450d is quite old and with a sensor not really the best, needs high-level optics to show the best. The stabilizer is amazing, I came to shoot at 1/15 to 300 mm on FF, getting still images. Personally I took for years without worrying about the exposure time, always still images. Much better than the 24-105 I've owned. Personally I could see that after the 200mm there is no loss of sharpness, rather a small micro-contrast that is perceived as a slight kneading of the image. For me, however, nothing dramatic, in fact, I used it quietly at all focal lengths and at every aperture. But I do not recommend the crop, you lose much detail as the optics can not solve enough. I recommend the purchase, especially if you look for compactness, provided you do not expect extreme sharpness and crop strong. How Tele Handyman Travel in my opinion is perfect.

Pros: Focus, construction, focal hike, stabilizer

Cons: Loses a lot from 200 mm onwards, heavy, bulky

Opinion: I was looking for a good telephoto lens that cost relatively little and in the end I chose him, the Canon 55-250 STM does not convince with the plastic attack even if the rest is defending well, the Canon 70-300 is quite criticized and costs even more so I went on the safe. The lens looks good, solid construction, including Lens hood and 10 year warranty. Mounted on the machine is exaggerated (I have a Canon 1200d), the weight is as much and unbalanced completely forward (in this aspect much better than the 55-250 STM); The focus ring is beautiful at sight and very fluid, can turn even if set to AF, you can not say the same as the zoom ring that is not very fluid and its hardness varies according to the inclination of the lens. The stabilizer does its job very well, trems a bit at the focal points more pushed but the result for what it costs is more than good, not good for videos because it tends to "autocentrarsi" and the end result is not fluid. Too bad for the lens hood that is very narrow and long and put and remove the cap to the lens is a feat for those who have a little big hands. Speaking instead of image quality is love and hatred, between the 70 and 200 mm about the result is very satisfactory (at 70 mm I would say excellent, are beautiful portraits even at full aperture) even if it is advisable to close a bit the diaphragm (7.1) to have a better result , from 200 to 300 Cala quickly, better to stay at least F8 but at that point it is necessary to increase the ISO for not having moved, in short, better to approach if possible and use shorter focal if you want to have good sharpness. I recommend it without a doubt in this price range is not rivals (after you get directly to the Canon 70-200 L) Even if it is worth evaluating the Canon 55-250 STM that costs a lot less (I saw it again at 170-180 euros) since the 300 mm are little exploitable.

Pros: Price, AF, weight, stabilization, full-time MF

Cons: Sharpness dropping in the last 50mm, no tripod ring

Opinion: Objective with a great value for money: the autofocus (as it is ultrasonic) is very fast and the stabilization is excellent, even at the longest focal lengths. Wanting to find some flaw, the zoom ring is a bit ' wide compared to the barrel and easily grains of dust fits into the slot, and it is to hope that they do not enter between the lenses, which has never happened to me. With full excursion and all opening Cala (not too appreciably) in sharpness, but it is still perfectly usable. Wanting to put the dots on the I sometimes feels the lack of a tripod ring (although there are models that, not too good, they cover, but covering the window of focus distance), but for this price is to be expected. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to approach photographic hunting or sports photography (or even macro, as you can see from my galleries) and wants to have for a price content a valid goal, which is not to be changed after two months because unsatisfactory.

Pros: Price, stabilizer, focus speed, touch sensation (good rubber on focus and zoom compared to other crap on the market to this figure), weight content

Cons: You can find the presence of dust in the lens very quickly (whether you buy it again, and even before used), maximum sharpness of the lense to F/8-9, bulky to 300mm

Opinion: It is almost a year that I own this lens, has always been useful to photograph nature (animals), landscapes, macros, etc.... but what struck me right away was its stabilizer, the VC (vibration compensator), very useful in light situations Poor (even when shooting at 1/40 of a second... well.... in those moments you must also have a minimum of steady hand). We then find the USD (ultrasonic focus) very fast for the figure to which this "jewel at low price" is hovering. The only real hassle, as you can read at the beginning is the dust... Before buying the lens I had heard phrases like:

Pros: Price, very efficient stabilizer, sharpness (if used at the aperture recommended for focal)

Cons: For its nothing price

Opinion: It is now available in the second-hand market at around €200 and in the new to €340. Taken from about a month and tested properly on Nikon D7000 with excellent satisfaction due to the ISO tightness of the machine. The stabilizer is exceptional, allowing you to safely recover 3-4 stops. For my use, mainly sports photographs of soccer and some evidence in birdlife, I consider myself very satisfied although in birdlife the optics are obviously a bit ' short forcing a crop of the image obviously already budgeted. In the future I will evaluate whether to continue with the crop or to match it with the Kenko 1.4 or 2x multiplier

Pros: Weight-price/quality-sharpness-stabilizer

Cons: Lens hood

Opinion: One of my favorite lenses, despite having his older brother the 70-200 G2. I use it often and willingly, the stabilization is crazy, you can shoot at 1/60 at 300mm without choppy, also guaranteed by the fact that it is very light and portable. The only drawback in my opinion is the lens hood, which forces you to disassemble it as often as you have to use the lens. Found used at 230 euros, I think one of the best buys.

Pros: Value for money Light. Most sharpness sufficed. Very efficient stabilization.

Cons: For 300 euros I do not have the courage to find

Opinion: Premise the yield is better and not little with the FF and especially with the Mega Mpx (used on the D800 has a whole other yield than the d3200): from 70 to 135 mm from the best of SE and therefore to F5 to 135 mm allows you to make good portraits with a Nice blurry. Even at 300 mm f. 56 You get some nice portraits. It's a good travel companion and photo reportage. And it goes very well to make some landscapes in stacking. So I would call it a good compromise. Now there are 100-400 both Tamron and Sigma, but they cost twice as well. Often you get distracted in technicalities from the real goal: think and take pictures. And often I also have to soften the portraits because they are too sharp. So only advice taken thinking. If the subject is good it is both at F5 and at f 2.8. Who complains that it is dark or is dumb or is of competition: when you buy it you already know it can give you. On the sharpness speech remember that under the 1/200 the micromove from the mirror increases and not little. That's why the FF among other things is favored: then use the LV to make good use of the stabilization.

Pros: Value for money, excellent stabilizer, focal range, weight

Cons: Sharpness not always excellent, interlocking hood

Opinion: I bought this lens in 2011, when it was in its kind perhaps the best on the market, and on 350D and 600D I was very pleased: autofocus fairly quick, excellent portability, great usability, no problem F/B focus. Paired with Sigma's 17-70 f 2.8-4 I was fully satisfied for many years. But passed to 6d and then to 70-200 F4L is, I realized that I switched to another world, so I understand the distance between a cheap lens and a pro. I would recommend it compared to all the same band, even Canon; It is certainly infinitely better than the 55-250 around, but I do not find it comparable with an L series. The real flaw, unfortunately present also in the last Tamron, is the hood with interlocking. By dint of using it, you wear the joint on the lens, and the hood becomes unstable, until it is unusable; The replacement of the hood is useless, because the worn part is on the lens, requiring intervention in service, unreasonable for economic reasons; The high-end Canon lenses in my possession do not present this problem.

Pros: Cost, sharpness (when used at the right aperture), autofocus, Lens hood included.

Cons: Weight (but it was budgeted), bulky lens hood

Opinion: Taken and tried for 3 weeks, I can tell me more than satisfied with the product: I have read technical reviews that have also helped me to better manage the diaphragm (at 300mm f/11 offers excellent sharpness) and already at ISO 200 my D5500 manages to the best loss of bright And I can say that those who complain about the slowness of autofocus do not know what standard is accustomed. That said, the hood is cross and delight: useful and valuable, however it is not functional when it is hooked on the reverse, and prevents the zoom to be used in a functional way. Price and weight, known well before the purchase, are the other two bills, but also on weight, it is not that it is so burdensome.

Pros: Cost; dimensions; stabilizer; definition and sharpness in the center.

Cons: Undeniably dark; sharpness at the edges; autofocus does not always engage and slow down, with little or too much contrast.

Opinion: My example, like many others, is well made and its sharpness in the central part is really good. I compared this 70-300 with the 70-300 USM "old" and 70-300 L Series of the Canon and I noticed that the sharpness in the middle is right in the middle between the two models. On the sides the old 70-300 canon is identical to this if not inferior, while the L series is better as you hopefully seen the 1000 euro that you spend more to get it. I tried the new Canon 70-300 USM II and it is better, but the difference is not so noticeable.rnSu APS-C this lens is perfect, because the loss of sharpness at the edges does not bother me because the lens portion is not used from the sensor, while on full frame you notice a little. I must say that most likely those who have had problems in general has not raised the doubt that it is a star model, as it also happens for lenses series L or Nikon pro (denigrate as always a lens just because it is not prodeight from the renowned I do not go down) .rnIo recommend it especially now that used has reached 200 euros and with this price is really the barrels.rnStabilizer effective 4 stops, clear and well contrasted .. these pros are enough for me and who it is not a pro or who does not need a quick connection. I would only change it for a 70 200 f2.8 only for the brightness in the interior.

Pros: sharpness to all openings, light, stabilizer, value for money.

Cons: a little slow autofocus and sometimes not very precise.

Opinion: I have it for two years and I must say that I am fully satisfied because it offers very clear shots. Then not having the Canon, with which it is often compared in various reviews, I can not judge the differences, certainly the canon will be better but also the price .... it is different.rnIn conclusion, I fully recommend it to those who , like me, do not make a professional use even if, and I confirm, the image quality is very but very good.rnPosseggo also the younger brother 17/50 and I am fully satisfied with that too.

Cons: nothing at that price

Opinion: Having 18 months I can say that if one wants to spend the right quality price without fainting and go on a bianchetto 70 200 f4 with other prices I find it very valid. Coupled first to my 550d canon and now 80d at the mugello with the motogp I made some nice photos. It has a 4-stop fear stabilizer that locks the image and helps a lot in shooting in motion. I do not use it much for the long focal length but the straconsiglio. great

Cons: af not lightning, it is not a monster of sharpness, dust enters the lens

Opinion: Optics from the really good quality price ratio, I use it with pleasure on my 6D, perhaps one of the optics that I use more, it must be said that to have a sharp picture I have to close the diaphragm very much, at least f10, 300 mm not is the top but you can bring home the shot, in my specimen dust enters the lens, I have no idea whether it is a factory defect or not.rnLeggerly dark but I was aware of what I bought.

Cons: Sharpen to 300mm, brightness (but at that price you can not expect so much)

Opinion: Lens used for more than a year on the Canon 600d and I must say I was astonished! With such a low price it has a really remarkable yield up to 200mm! In my opinion, better than the Canon base. It has a good stabilizer and a really fast focus that has never given me any trouble in the action shots!

Pros: Value for money, full aperture up to 250 mm, ultrasonic AF, stabilizer, included lens hood, chromatic aberration resistance.

Cons: The lack of the tripod ring, but at this price I'm so happy.

Opinion: I use it on my 100d and never disappointed me. Exceptional sharpness up to 250 mm at full opening. At 300 mm is a little less sharp and you have to close the diaphragm slightly (from f / 7.1 up). Ultrasonic AF fast and accurate, even with little light. Stabilizer really extraordinary: you can shoot at 1/30 to 300 mm without micromass! It resists very well to chromatic aberrations and the hood is included in the price (they are not broken like Canon). The only flaw is the lack of the tripod ring: this is a pretty heavy and bulky goal, especially when combined with lightweight bodies such as the 100d. As a result, even using a sturdy tripod the weight is unbalanced and the machine tilts forward.

Pros: Cost, sharpness up to 200/250 mm already af / 8, reasonable filter size (62mm), phenomenal VC system, also suitable for FF

Cons: VC energivoro, with hood is a sight obscure, bulky; It's not a featherweight (but it's a 70-300), 300 is not perfect, not instantaneous focus (but not too slow), lack of zoom lock, with hood mounted on the contrary it can not zoom

Opinion: I claim that I mount it on my d3300 (which without lenses weighs about 400gr), so the lens is unbalanced by the car, is disproportionate to the small size of my entry level! With mounted hood is Gigantic! Beyond the constructive quality (I'm sorry not to have plastic in order to hold 800 grams of weight), I think there are some bad things, such as the absence of the focal block and the fact that with the hood mounted on the contrary it fails to Use the zoom ring, which explains the reason for its not high cost! If you can overcome these defects, you can appreciate the true quality of the lens, ie the lenses and the VC. I optically liked it, F / 8 is sharper than 18-105 (which in my opinion is a qualitatively comparable zoom with this), the VC feels and is noticeable, it is very effective, far superior to the VR of the 18- 105 of nikon, allows to make shots even at 1/30 if not less than 70mm, and at 300mm i have been able to imagWithout micromassage at 1/125 and probably could keep even longer times! Useful for outdoor photos (it's too dark for indoor), I have not tried it yet to use for sports photography, but I have good hopes! I really liked it as it did in the portrait and in the street (yes it's long and you notice, but if well camouflaged it's not being seen by the subject, keeping the naturalness of the moment)

Pros: Quality sharpness sharp colors AF fast and precise stabilizer great. Solid construction quality

Cons: Bulky hood

Opinion: I've been around for about a month. Do different tests. Taken in different situations. I really liked it. The AF is fast and accurate. The stabilizer is great. His best give it to f8. I have tried with big bird type flying herons not lost a shot. The colors are very beautiful and the sharpness is great. The mount on Canon 60rne talks very well. Sincerely, I consider it a beautiful goal. Only the long hood is very long, if you fit a filter it is almost impossible to reach it at least for me, maybe I have short fingers. € 400 paid in store.

Pros: Overall lens quality and price

Cons: Not tropicalized

Opinion: I personally find this lens my favorite because it gives incredible clarity and precision, comparable to the Nikon homologue and in some cases better (in the middle in some conditions). Even the focus is up to expectations even if you can lose the subject in case of particular backgrounds (this has never affected my shot anyway) .rn Although not very recent one is still one of the best in circulation and I'm really curious to try the G2!

Pros: Great construction quality, fiery focus on the Alpha A99 with the active autofocus limiter. Very clear from f8 onwards.

Cons: NOTHING.

Opinion: Paid 190 euros used but as new. I immediately got feeleng, I immediately sucked it over 220 mm. You have to close at f8 and at 300, even if you use it with sharp images (but it is quite normal with almost all optics). Many complain about the slow MAF, it will be that I have a lucky specimen, I do not have this problem, I expect to use it on a FF SONY A99 which has as standard the focus limiter that narrows the field a lot and allows it to focus Fulminea. Slight enough, the hood, is a little bulky but it's from that "long" touch that does not hurt at all. I've had both the small 70-300 little brother and the SAM 70-300G who did not give me the same satisfaction and I paid him more than twice used. I really recommend it, not suitable for small bird life (for that there is 150-600) unless it's really close, but with large birds, flying is a show. Absolutely to have for street and tourism photos.

Pros: quality / price ratio, weight, stabilizer

Cons: Hood cumbersome, focusing not fast

Opinion: I had this goal, he bought and resold twice. I am not a professional but in any case I can only confirm what we read the reviews written before me. For the price you pay it really is an excellent lens, the stabilizer helps a lot even though the focus is a bit slow. Sharp the right (but not too much more than 200mm) is an excellent choice for those who want to try. But using it you realize you want more and for that reason I sold it. It is still an excellent product. Recommended if you have a tight budget.

Pros: Price Stabilizer, Sharpness, Weight.

Cons: Slightly noisy, bulky hood, MAF not always fast, Tropicalization, distance MAF a bit 'long.

Opinion: Bought new online recently, I have to say it is a good product with a good price-quality ratio. Used still a few times but I have to say that is giving me good results, considering that I make a purely amateur. Good image clarity, good construction, not too heavy. The MAF is sometimes not very fast, but maybe they have not yet found the right setting. I have yet to try it in situations of low light indoors to test if the stabilizer really makes a difference. All in all, at the time, nothing to complain. Maybe if it had been too macro or with a minimum distance of MAF it would have been better.

Pros: stabilizer and sharpness

Cons: perhaps the stabilizer noise

Opinion: I sold and bought back many times this goal, the opinions in the comments are always discordant, can assure you it has nothing to envy to the Canon L series after many field trials, the only reason why I sold it for a pass brand to another, the buy back a thousand times and did not even need enormous lens hood attached. Soon I will buy unless you want to take the fixed focal lenses for all

You ask them to snap and he will respond with a pernacchietta to say, ready! The VC ovviamente.Rumoroso but really well stabilized, I shot 130 and the picture was clear. I have not seen substantial declines sharpness at all apertures, Ta is crisp but a little less at the edges but it's not important if you are looking a bokeh of course, if you want a landscape shot you have to close at least f8 like all so the fact that it is dark or not is relative, considering that there are targets of focal, ie diaphragm that cost from 2000 on. Do not liken it to 70-200 f2.8 Nikkor because I have not tried it but we talk about goals for 2000 EUR guys, that I bought at 250 and does its job. negative points? None of those statements dagl'altri because it is not a fixed, all the paintings that I saw from 200 up have considerable hood. The only flaw is that it is not tropicalizato.Plasticoso but if you are looking for a goal to use instead of the hammer I do not know ... Buy yourself a hammer, they are otherwise sensitive items, any goal, maybe not out m inside you, whatever. If he were really tropical conditions it would use in any situation, because it really is true. Maybe also resists well to the rain but I do not know and I do not want to risk rovinarlo.Se someone has used in similar situations let me know, I would recommend it for portraits with studio flash, landscape, reportage and especially sport all aperto.Ps l ' I also used to dance essays in the dark in the theater, it goes.

Pros: Price, stabilizer, sharpness

Cons: bulky hood

Opinion: I'm not a professional, but in my experience and in relation to my needs I believe that this lens (taken from a few days) is exceptional for clarity and for the quality of the stabilizer. A focal around 200 mm and aperture 8 is fantastic. A 300 mm lose something if used at full aperture, improves diaphragm around 8. The only drawback a very bulky hood, but, perhaps, necessary. The stabilizer does impression both for the efficiency that for the noise that produces during its operation. This last aspect you forgive when you realize you can get sharp photos by taking 1/50 with zoom pulled to 200-300mm. Someone compared it to optical by at least a thousand euro. I am not able to do so, never failing to try, but I have no comparisons to make.

Opinion: I own this lens for a few months before a specimen bought used then sold for the stabilizer problems (communicated to the buyer), bought back again and made to calibrate Polyphoto. I honestly believe that the quality is overrated, discreet only f8 up. Over 200mm then is worse than my Canon bridge. I have not seen a single photo on the forum that justifies the votes over 9.0.

The stabilizer is then I think the winning absolute of this canvas, blocks the image with an audible hiss but it is a guarantee that takes your dall'agguato of blur.

Opinion: Good telephoto lens that completes my current lineup of optical with the Tamron 17-50 VC and Canon 50 F1.8 STM. rnDevo say I am very satisfied with the performance objective, is quite bright but clearly going towards 300mm must be careful in situations with no light elevata.rnlo advice vivamente.rnuniche things that "do not like" this lens are: l ' the absence of the small "lock" to lock inadvertent lens aperture when you have the camera in the neck or shoulder and the inability to use the zoom when you have the lens hood reversed. RNLA second is an extreme situation for me, because I always have the lens hood even if the machine is turned off at the neck.

Pros: effective stabilization, sharp (up to 200mm), good construction, versatile, lens hood included

Cons: AF not fast, and yield to TA over the soft 200mm, has not the block for the ring

Opinion: I use it very often (for photos Canon version) paesaggisitche from 3 years (of old 5D and 50D), with him I am taken away a lot of satisfaction !. The stabilization is very efficient and silent, very good sharpness up to 200mm, well begins to drop, the 300mm (also closed aperture as f / 8 or f / 11) always returns soft images that make complicated crop interventions. The building is decent, with good quality plastics that return a good feeling but nothing to do with the L series of Canon. The af is precise but not lightning-fast (I do not do photo hunting, so for me it is not a big deal), the lens does not have the lock to the ring, this will mean that when you will not use, and will be facing down, optics is allungerà alone (very annoying) .rnSecondo me is worth the purchase, the price / quality ratio is outstanding! New is on € 340 (I got it used in good condition at about 230 &€;), at those prices I would absolutely recommend, you will have a versatile lens (70-300mm) with some changes that will give great shots!

I'm happy with the purchase, the difference with the previous lens you see, the photos are sharp and clean, I expected a little more from focusing saw the ultrasonic motor, but at that price it's fine.

Pros: Construction, range of focal, beautiful hood included, stabilizer

Cons: Sharpness, heaviness and encumbrance, the inaccurate zoom ring

Opinion: I purchased this objective used on ebay a few years ago to replace an older Canon 100-300 f 5.6 in my loan and I was very disappointed by the poor sharpness at longer focal lengths (200-300mm). The photos taken at the moon with the Tamron were decidedly less sharp than those made with the old Canon with the same focal (300 mm), among others, the Canon has not even stabilized. Result: I sold, after less than a month, without losing anything to luck. Another thing I did not like about this lens is the zoom ring, rather hard and "jerky". I think for the price that is new is better to add something extra and focus on bianchino, although shorter.

Perhaps Roy72chi will have taken a Tamron 70-300 defective because I do not see them right all those defects also does not give me problems because I can not find the hard indeed ring and very light so I highly recommend it with 300 euro you take a great canvas.

Pros: Stabilizer

Cons: 200 to 300mm to say the least painful. Construction and solid feel from pure toy.

Opinion: Taken and returned after a couple of days. The zoom ring was so tough that ran jerkily. At 200mm even seemed to have arrived at the end of the race, it was so tough. Probably defective at birth. Although not suffering from back / front focus problems, since the 200mm was so soft and kneaded it even stopped down to f / 8-11 managed to be decent. It will be true that you take back to "only" 300 €, but a yield scandalous like that had not even my old 55-250IS first series on the 70D. The fact is that I restored back and I took the new Canon 55-250 IS STM which, although plasticky, is built much better, (bayonet separately) costs half and the yield is consistent and clear to any Focal also to edges of the frame. Personally I definitely do not recommend the Tamron "toilet" in favor of the Canon 55-250 IS STM if you aps-c, otherwise recommend spending more and take a bianchino.

Pros: Versatility (especially on FF) - Stabilizer - weight / size - Price!

Cons: If I find one: AF a bit 'slow with poor light and lens hood "excessive"

Opinion: Having also had far more "noble" zoom / tele as well as expensive, I can say with knowledge of the facts that this 70-300 - referenced to zoom hand hiking - definitely worth more than what it costs! The use of Canon 6D and 7DMkII and in both cases I get photos more than decent. With the FF then it is almost a "handyman" and the factor "crop" of APS-C brings its "length" the equivalent of 480mm, certainly sufficient for distant subjects. Someone "laments" a slight softness to "TA" beyond 200mm, personally do not understand the reason for wanting to insist on getting the most to "TA", just "close" f / 8 (which also did it with much more expensive optical, to get the maximum sharpness ...) and the "problem" is solved ... for against, the excellent stabilizer which is fitted to this objective, allows to earn easily stop 3 without risk of micromosso.rnPesa relatively smoothly and comes in a medium sized bag, while I do not like it at all excessive lens hood, with one mounted do not pass unnoticed ... and in the rest position does not allow to act on zoom and Maf, but it is a "classic" of the optical Tamron, nearly a price to pay ... rnSe I have to find a functional defect, I would say that the Autofocus - low light - is not fast; but in low light, most or all the objectives are in crisis, except they do not have optical light, but exponentially proportionate to the costs luminosità.rnConcludendo, I think for what it costs, and for its versatility (especially on FF) is perspective to have in your kit, knowing her and knowing she use you can take much satisfaction (and I add that: "if it was white and it cost three times, would be" for all "a great goal" :-D

Pros: Sharp price stabilizer 5 year warranty.

Cons: zoom ring a little 'tough. nothing else saw the price.

Opinion: The first impression is of excellent sharpness at all focal lengths, also usable at full aperture. It will not get the resolution of a fixed lens, but if the shot is correct, the difference must really look carefully watching the image at 100%. Even the bokeh is not bad; you can make good portraits 100mm f4. Unlike most I see well even resolving to 300mm, and the contrast is always great. The stabilizer would say, powerful. But be careful to use it only when needed, and leave the second to work well, otherwise you will lose sharpness. Contrary to what usually many do, I leave it off and active only when times drop below a certain threshold. Doing so can make the most of 'optical clarity. very good building, not at the level of the Canon L series, for example, the zoom ring is duretta, is not as fluid as the canon pro, but there is the advantage that sets a focal remains pretty firm, also the Barilointernal tto is stable and does not play as it does on many zooms too expensive. Autofocus great and even accurate, does not seem to have the back front focus issues. If you serve in these focal FF landscape, wildlife, this is perhaps the best choice under 500 €. For portraits you can get good results between 70 and 135mm shooting at diframma everything open. Although ideal for portraits remain large openings fixed. In conclusion, for € 300 it is also too much stuff, good Tamron. I do not understand those who accuse him of little detail; or the variability of the specimens is high or there is some error in the shot. It can often be linked to these shake-focal.

The VR although not exactly compensates for 4 stops, but three seem safe to me (maybe I hand quite firm), allow me to leave the 70-200 2.8 doubler and the monopod at home or in the car with a total weight in less than two kilograms, which in less backpack feel all right. The sharpness is very good at all focal even at maximum, considering the decay of my 2.8 duplicated seems to me that if the play, anzthe. There is not much I have to, but within the first shots I was thrilled. I recommend it as new as the favorable value for money, even more to use (of course if found in good condition and at a reasonable price, or better again about 300 € in physical store or online, and even less with a long warranty long). I do not regret not having taken the bianchini as MMT have a price far higher than the conditions that often have, not to mention by new (especially the IS). I quickly discarded the 2.8, the first for the cost (I am a amateur photographer and not a professional, so the equipment does not repay the costs faced), then for the weight that would have forced me to always leave something at home to risparmiarne a bit, something that most times the other hand I did with what I already have. One thing that perhaps I would have liked would have been the presence of a tripod mount, although already with VR it does without the 90% utilizationnormale.rnrnAggiunta of 31/05/2016 ATTENTION TO FILTERS THAT PUT IN FRONT OF THE LENS front. After putting a UV filter Cokin I realized after some time that the optical performance had changed for the worse from 150 up to any aperture, but at first I thought to a possible failure to stabilizer (and even if the I switched off the situation did not change) as images in magnification to 100% showed a kind of vibration. After only a few scervellamento day I realized that the cause was the UV filter (I think not digital) will appear before the lens. I also tried a filter 1A and the problem manifests the same even if to a lesser extent. I eventually taken away even that and the benefits are back perfect.

The stabilizer is great although slightly noisy, but I always brought home good shots despite the times of shots relatively long compared to the used focal; the image quality has always left me satisfied, especially between 70 and 250 mm (over becomes too "soft", especially 300); good colors and contrast the lens returns; aps-c of little vignette, but of ff I never had the opportunity to mount it; the construction seems solid and making quite rapid and effective fire. Among the other hand, in addition to the softness above 250 mm, I would not report much: at this price it would be ridiculous to ask for higher brightness or tropicalization.

The lens is a must to always have on hand, portraits, landscapes, reporting, you can do everything. Needless to mention the pro, you all know by now, so I will pass directly to the hand, to better explain the ones I added. -Construction Is certainly well made, but it is a great plasticone, not from a sense of reliability, but does his duty. -Variabilità Specimens: I Have had two, one for and one for Canon Nikon, Canon in the sample, for example, I noticed a certain dominant blue / purple, sometimes very annoying, forcing a few more steps in the post. In what Nikon, however, this dominance does not seem to see it, but I found a slightly increased noise stabilizer, compared to Canon model. A bit 'wide sleeves, probably, the qu controlsality, but it always comes back to price discourse .... Brightness: well yes, it's a little dark, when the sun begins to set, the ISO rise very quickly. The low-light also leads to the next problem; Levelling-focus: that if one part is pretty quick and quiet, the other goes completely broke down when the light begins to run low, and it is here that the low brightness does not help. All in all a very good buy, does its job, and does it well in the right conditions. It lies very easily in the used market, but often the price is too close to that of the new online.

Comparing it with other canvases (Canon) I tried, that is 70-200 f / 2.8 IS II, 70-200 f / 4 IS and 200 f / 2.8, of course there is no comparison. I'm just saying that after a couple of shots a bit under all conditions, the image quality up to 200 mm seems close to me or slightly higher than that of the 18-200 Canon, a handy, certainly not brilliant. Above 200 mm is even worse, at TA the images are rather kneaded. Those who are satisfied will enjoy it, especially at this price (288 euros VAT included, with hood and free UV filter). Stabilizer really ok, nothing to say in this regard. Embarrassing vignetting on full frame. With hindsight, between having it and not having little difference. UPDATE: After a trip during which I often had to use the long focal lengths, which I usually do not like, I can say that my exemplary bestself closed at af / 9 and focals up to 250 mm; under these conditions and with the right light the riresults are more than dignified. It does not have the character of "whites" but at this price, I repeat, you can easily settle down.

Pros: Solid, more than adequate AF, versatile, attractive price.

Cons: Appropriate quality at affordable price.

Opinion: Let's say I was - is - flawed in judgment from having had the Canon 70-300 L el 'excellent Tamron 70-200 VC; It is a great handyman universal weight (denoting quality construction) but easy to use. The optical quality is decent, good sharpness, lightning-fast yet accurate AF, as well as color rendering. I did not expect miracles, but for that price it is absolutely worth the money them all. rnConsigliabile.

Pros: Many: price, build quality, image quality at all focal lengths, perfect interaction with the camera, speed MAF equal if not superior to the originals, efficiency stabilizer, chromatic aberration virtually nonexistent.

Cons: Given that the brightness does not interest me, nobody.

Opinion: Purchased even after reading the reviews on Juza and strong excellent results obtained with the Tamron 16-300 and 28-300, I must say, in this case, to be fully soddisfatto.rnLa image quality it seems to be even higher than that of Canon 70-300 DO, with a cost equal to a fifth though! The bokeh is more than acceptable, not exceptional considering the opening; TA I did not detect vignetting. Not very compact but if you do not have a shortage of space does not matter; the weight is in line with the type of lens and the construction is truly accurate; the five-year warranty, although not valid for any subsequent purchaser, is a plus more than welcome. Ultimately, a goal certainly advisable, exceptional price / quality ratio.

Pros: Very clear from 70 to 200-250, discretely at 300 f / 5.6, good at f / 8, best price performance ratio, sensational stabilizer, good and included hoods.rnBen correct chromatic aberration and coma.

Cons: Zoom ring that turns in reverse, a little 'soft at 300 af / 5.6, a bit' cumbersome as a dimension.

Opinion: It was my first telephoto zoom. It is light enough and fits comfortably with other objectives in the bag for an excursion.rnThe image quality is good, not exceptional but satisfying, especially considering the price at which it is located.rnFrom 70 to 200-250 is clear and well resolved already at full aperture, at 300 unfortunately becomes a bit 'softer at f / 5.6 while improving a bit' closing af / 8, which is always his sweet spot. As far as I could see in my copy, the optical aberrations are correct, there are no problems of front or back focus and the vignetting is modest and easily solved in pp.rnrnThe really strong point of this goal, however, is the stabilizer. It is exceptional and allows you to take pictures on dense sensors like that of my 70D (20Mpx apsc) even at 1/20 of a second, or about 4 stops. This of course framing still and static objects. If you take pictures of moving objects, the stabilizer must be switched off.rnThe stabilizer, in thisI'm objective, it's also great for solving any problems of micro moved.rnComodo also the fact that the stabilizer is activated when you activate the AF, then while the lens focus, in the viewfinder (or on the screen of the live view) you see the image well and steady.rnConsigliato who, without wanting to faint, wants a telephoto discreet / good at a good price.

Cons: Anything

Opinion: I can say very little since I bought it last night, but the little that I used it I can say that is very good picture, zoom is great catch things far away, I saw, as I said a friend, who for this goal the least minimum zoom is the maximum of a 18-55 mm and it is true indeed, perhaps even a hair more. rnNon being just a zoom for close-ups, but they still managed to take pictures of my kittens as first floor but not zooming too. The stabilizer is great. I just have to get used to a little weight but nothing that's just to take confidence.

Cons: weight

Opinion: I'm using this tamron 9 months and I must say that I am very well, has a very good sharpness and also the stabilizer does what it must. I think that for what it costs we can not have more. If we find the only flaw is the weight, using a half-day free hand when you return home you feel a little fatigue but this is a very relevant issue. I highly recommend this Tamron, you will not regret.

Pros: Stabilizer truly amazing, Unexpected Sharpness and cleaning Image 300mm, Construction Solid, precise focus ring, Ultrasonic Motor with nothing to envy to Canon.

Cons: Light game on the bayonet when mounted on the camera, zoom ring that runs in reverse compared to Canon.

Opinion: I possessed the Canon 70-300 IS USM and I expected to get rid of it to switch to a Sigma 70-200 f / 2.8 EX OS HSM. rnAvendo revalued on how to invest temporarily available budget, I gave away the Canon and I wanted to bet on this Tamron 70-300 in combination with a 6D and then with the possibility to cover the missing stop aperture with the large capacity of 6D ISO up to and maintain the image of that lens pulita.rnLe expectations, after reading several reviews, having viewed several different tests and test beyond. rnSiamo much on the Canon 70-300 IS USM inexplicably costs about 100 euro more than this lens, but that is really far behind in this building Tamron.rnLa touch is perceived to be above it. The optics transmits strength and solidity ... is heavier than the Canon and not of poco.rnQuesto Tamron than the Canon it has a true ultrasonic motor ring with the possibility of "Full Time Manual Focus". The fire is accurateand fast as the Canon's ring-type USM. The difference on the firepower with the corresponding Canon is abysmal. The Canon has the front lens that rotates and stretches when focheggia thus creating diffcioltà to be able to use certain types of filters and does not allow manual focus without first sgnacia engine. The Tamron is extremely faster, as quiet as you would expect from fire engines ultrasonic, the front lens does not rotate and does not stretch during the fire and then you can use all the filters without problemi.rnI two strengths that I have really hit of this lens are the stabilizer and detail. We are very, very far from Canon ... stabilizer you see right away that it is a different category. It emits more or less the same hissing when the Canon comes into operation, but the picture is really glued edges once it enters into operation. I could take to 300mm (three hundred millimeters) with times of 1/20 (one twentieth) obtaining an image in sharp focus and without any kind of micromosso.rnInutile saythat Canon will not get to this level because of a significant loss of detail to 300mm which alone tend to knead the immagine.rnCon the Tamron 300mm f / 5.6 we continue to have a truly noteworthy detail ... the image is engraved, clean, crisp. Probably not having tried the best performing as a lens 70-200 L f / 4 I have no benchmarks higher but with my old Canon 70-300 IS USM are definitely on another planet. rnL'ottica and makes it so much, probably complicit in this excellent 6D. I wanted to bet on this objective preferring 100mm rock at an aperture of f / 2.8 classics 70-200. To hazard a bet that I had to mature confidence that it merges with a 6D, the latter has its more than excellent performance at high ISO. For now it seems a winning bet. A lens with a value of really high level.

Pros: Clarity, soundness, value for money, excellent stabilizer

Cons: A little heavy. Hood too flashy, zoom ring for me uncomfortable.

Opinion: The use of 6d. For the price it's a great goal. Very sharp. It loses a little bit around 300 but nothing serious. The stabilizer is very effective and fast-focusing lens (not to the levels of 70 200 is f 4 canon that I tried for a long time). The thing I like least is the forward position of the zoom ring, for me uncomfortable. I would have preferred that the fire far and the zoom as close on canon.rnIn synthesis, for less than 300 € you can not ask for more of this type of lens.

Opinion: I was torn between this lens and the original Canon of the same level but in the end I opted for this, and I have not regretted it at all. The value for money is great and gave me great shots even in low light conditions. Photographs taken with this lens can be viewed in my gallery. The solidity of this lens is very good, and sends some confidence, the lens is also equipped with a big hood. The only flaw is certainly not just the weight and the diaphragm is not fixed. I used it on a 600D and the couple was perfect! The contrast is good and the focus is pleasant.

Opinion: Bought with the Sigma 10-20mm about a month and a half ago, this goal I fully exploited only in my last trip to London. rnSi proved a lens truly sublime, the sharpness is superb at all focal lengths, as blurry (we talk about use of APS-C, let alone on FF!). The stabilizer is a godsend, especially when shooting at the maximum focal length, and is very good at his job. rnPagato just under 300 €, I was afraid that there was in a trap, but it proved a really smart buy track, showing the excellent voices on build quality and image: quality / price ratio 10 + .rnSe really want to find fault, I I quote the following dimensions: I agree with those who called the hood "of exhibitionist", because it is almost as long as the lens and makes it bulky and awkward, especially in crowded places. The weight is felt very, using this lens on a Canon 550D, and could have used the presence of a ring Treppiedi.

Pros: Low price compared to Canon products. Performance average but improvable if you know the operation.

Cons: Sometimes not guesses focus in conditions not exactly optimal.

Opinion: Objective is not absolutely evil. I tested in extreme conditions to test and passed the test well enough. The lens is well-built and solid enough. The weight is relatively light and it is not difficult to carry for long periods. In good light conditions the lens has yielded good results. The auto focus is fast but not fast. Sometimes it only occasionally can cause blurred images, even when the conditions were excellent and the image was perfectly focused in the viewfinder even if only visibly. The tests were all handmade libera.Ho bought the lens for nature photos of animals. When the light is good, the percentage of high-quality photos. In low light situations or animals moving the percentage of clear pictures down a bit '. My results were very different in quality. In some sequences, the results were spectacular, the photos were sharp and high contrast with great color fidelity. For other ifcies in different conditions the pictures were out of focus. So it is also difficult to see if the fault is partly to be taken to the camera, the photographer or the lens. For example, I suspect that the Tamron does not always work well with the 70D in automatic mode "sport" when the focus should be rapid. With the control in manual mode it seems to work best but not always. All in all, the Tamron is a good lens and it is worth buying, especially for the price. In my opinion it is a lens that we must learn to use it and with time you will get the benefits. The product is good, but not great, then to use in the best conditions.

Cons: boh, for 300 € I would say that I do not see.

Opinion: Arrived yesterday and still little used to give a true judgment ... However, according to some tests I've done I can say that: RN1) I was in doubt between the 70-200 and this for months and because of the price they are finished choose the less accurate ... I was afraid that as sharpness could disappoint me and instead I was pleasantly surprised. Really nice and preciso.rn2) Needless to say, it is a bit dark etc ... Obviously, costs 300 € and not 1200, be satisfied in fact. Perhaps the AF is a bit slow in low light and when there is too little just let it go but I do not think it's a problem for me since I do not do sports, and that given the low performance learn to focuse hand with more care .rn3) As everyone says after 200mm begins to suffer, but if you quit a bit and then PP will help with some changes you can still get good results. At full aperture is an instant soft at all focal lengths, but nothing scary ... between f8 and f11 behaves very well! RN4) I was afraid for the blurry, judged by some "unwatchable" but even there at the timeI loved it. It all depends on which fund you choose, that depends little on the qualities dell'obiettivo.rnInsomma in conclusion I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good paintings at a low price;)

Taken as an alternative to the canon 70-200mm f / 4 L IS, that "point" again, but for now will not buy, given the price difference and the 100 mm longer (sometimes return their profits) in favor of the Tamron . As lens from portrait to these focal prefer the Canon 135 f / 2 L, but for my trips to the mountains, the canon 17-40 (attached to the camera) and the Tamron 70-300 VC (in the backpack, to be extracted in the case of sightings of animals or landscapes "long") are a good combination.

Pros: AF, stabilizer, focal excursion, price

Cons: Plasticky, general yield, little bright

Opinion: I state that it is a lens that I used on APS-C and probably on FF is more indicated; The first impression was of a lens plasticosa although well built, AF and stabilizer excellent, especially the stabilizer has recovered me almost 5 stops on 24MPX APS-C under different circumstances; On APS-C format at the yield level, the colors are poorly decided, the lens tends to burn the lights a bit, at TA at 70mm has obvious chromatic aberrations that go away by closing at 5.6, in principle is a lens to use on this format between 70-150mm between f 5.6-8 , above 150mm must be diaphragmed F9-F11 where the phenomenon of the difraction comes into play and the AF tends to have a slight back focus, however too dark for some shots; In the portrait has a bokeh and blurry passable, at 150mm at close distances from portrait tends to accorciarciarsi as focal to an equivalent credo on the 100mm; I recommend this lens to anyone who wants a tele zoom all make alternative to an 18-200mm and can't afford a 70-200 2.8 (which nonetheless is always preferable, better yet, especially in portrait, fixed and bright lenses).

Pros: Excellent value for money, not too excessive weight, good colors, good sharpness, autofocus fast enough ,, stabilizer noisy but excellent

Cons: Slightly soft to 300 mm but nothing that dim

Opinion: First, as many have said the value for money is nothing short of excellent .. I used it for a whole day and I was very pleased. The stabilizer and noisy but does more than his duty well, autofocus is pretty fast, softness on 300 mm is slightly noticeable perhaps depends on the conditions in which you shoot. In any case, light and not very evident. rnil weight quite content but do not know how far my impression may be useful as I use in combination with Canon 24 70 LL known to be rather pesante.rnIn any case it is highly recommended and for what I saw to what I know at this price there is almost nothing better. rnciao all

Pros: stabilizer deadly sharpness at certain focal

Cons: excessive weight and bulk

Opinion: I mount the Tamron SP 70-300mm f / 4-5.6 Di VC USD for EOS 600D with the crop factor so the focus is even more thrust. The first thing you notice is the size on the one hand is an advantage because it gives security, but on the other hand is a little too bulky necessarily need a backpack, simple bags are not enough. the hood is huge. the stabilizer is amazing, one of the best on the market, frozen image !!! f good and not too noisy. excellent sharpness, but lost a little over 250mm. brightness "typical" of a canvas. great for amateurs, unbeatable price.

Pros: Excellent stability, good focal length, excellent sharpness up to 200, good for up to 250.

Cons: Soft at room temperature and above 250 mm, extends the zoom by.

Opinion: I bought it while I evaluate the replacement of the Canon 55-250, I was torn between the canon 70 200 f4 and this Tamron, but the price and comparisons that I found around and I could personally have made me lean towards this goal. I am fully satisfied, it is perfectly usable for portraits and for wildlife, the detail is amazing especially considering the price and the stabilizer has made incredible, can earn about 4 stop.rnConsigliatissimo

Pros: excellent stabilizer,

Cons: poor accuracy. disastrous to 300mm - First version- EXCELLENT the copy which I was replaced

Opinion: I bought 40 days ago, after reading a number of very positive reviews. Now things are: a) do not know how to use; b) I took out a bad product c) is a poor object (but in this case I can not explain reviews ...) I have a Canon 18 135, by many referred to as a pretty lousy aim. I took more pictures as evidence and it is always better result, even doubling the magnification .... Does anyone have tips? Update: After months of trials and two steps in technical assistance to me has been replaced. The new is excellent. Meanwhile, I had purchased the Pompone (100,400 L series1) and up to 250 challenge you to find differences.

Pros: Stabilization excellent sharpness even at 300mm, quality / price ratio

Cons: Sometimes when you turn the camera does not start autofocus

Opinion: I purchased this light in 2012, and what impressed me at first use is to stabilize highly effective and visible in the eyepiece of my camera, allows you to shoot easily even at 300mm at 1 / 50th of a second without micromosso.rnAltra peculiarity is the sharpness I would say very good even at 300mm and fully correctable in PP from 70 to 200mm is sharp like a knife giving files very well exposed with excellent resolution, but it is nice blurred (not mixed), not suffer from flare and not overexpose the foto.rnLa zoom ring is very smooth and the hood is well made weight is fine since the zoom range. For the type of photography that I prefer is perfect (still photos), but if the request has speed limits in both AF precision (I use it on a Canon EOS 7D) .rnA my opinion on the market, there are objectives that are at the even (especially for the price / quality) considered that the Canon 70-300 L costs 4 times as much, ifyou do not have to meet the sporting needs advice absolutely.

Pros: AF, stabilizer, quality / price ratio, focal length

Cons: Sharpness at RT and over 200mm, construction

Opinion: I use it for about a year on APSC (Canon 60d), mainly for racing. rnCome said, has a quality / price ratio really high. rnLe plastics are not the best to be honest, but you have to take into account that it costs about 300 €! The focus ring is not very smooth, but using it to 99% in AF is not an issue. The zoom ring is better, although in my example is a bit 'too soft at the end of the race. The lens hood is made rather bene.rnPer regard to optical performance, a TA sharpness is not the best, but close enough to a stop to get the best results. Using it often for panning, I have big problems from this point of view. RNA my opinion, the quality remains good up to 200mm, beyond which begins to knead too much detail. rnDavvero excellent stabilizer, which offers a great advantage especially for those who, like me, uses it on APSC. rnL'AF is quite fast, although a bit 'noisy as already shown in other recensioni.rnIn conclusion: for mie needs (car racing) is beginning to be tight for sharpness and AF, although I managed to get some good pictures. In my profile, you can find some for track use. I'm still satisfied, and highly recommend it if you are looking for a tele stabilized by the good performance and do not have a large budget.

Pros: Af ultrasonic, stabilizer, sharpness, quality / price ratio, bokeh, beautiful hood compared to the canon of 100-400 and 70-300L, build quality.

Cons: Missing limiter distances of MAF, stabilizer noisy, IQ at TA 250 mm up, lack of tripod ring.

Opinion: I own this tamron past two and a half months, a short time compared to others who have reviewed it, but enough to write this opinion. At first I was torn between the purchase the Tamron or the most popular Canon 70-200 f / 4 is and is not, however, telling me that I would have used on countless occasions and genres I decided to opt for the latter. Bought at a price of 280 Euros, quest'obbiettivo certainly not disappoint the expectations showing a surprisingly good sharpness diaphragm key personnel as f / 8-11, beautiful bokeh, best of 100-400 canon and almost comparable to its namesake series L, and showing off a system of ultrasonic AF ring (the best in all the optics in my opinion) as well as with a stabilizer that earns on occasion four stops in the use of time (you can take safely to 1/30 to 300 mm ). Although considerable pro convinced me all'aquisto of quest'ottoca, really cheap, the lens also has some small defect. First, the AF system: some talk of one of the best performing sisteI auto focus existing, but often I found myself waiting also 3:00 to 4:00 seconds (difficult shooting conditions) because agganciasse the subject well. In part, this lack is due to the absence of a limiting distances of MAF which greatly affect the speed, in fact automatic fire must try to focus on a subject at a distance range that starts at 1.5 meters and goes up to ' infinite. Despite this to happen in the hours when there is little sunlight, since the lens in question is a relatively lete "dark", this addition would allow MAF a much better performance if not twice as fast. Another flaw, in my opinion, is the noise level of stabilization. As soon as you turn it around for a second before shooting the viewfinder of the camera shakes and you hear a mechanical noise quite annoying that lasts when you hold down the shutter button halfway. Despite this, however, after a while you do get used. Alsothe sharpness to TA is another factor that is the subject of a thousand threads. From 70 mm up to 200-250 optics it returns detailed images even at f / 4-5.6 despite better still if closed by a pair of stop. Speech is far from 250mm up where there is a considerable drop in IQ and where, for sharp pictures and detailed, you have to close up to f / 11. Apart from these shortcomings there are other defects that do not affect the optics in itself such as the lack of a tripod mount ring (according to me superfluous given that good tripod support it also extended to the maximum focal length) and the construction relatively plasticky ( plasticosamente but good for a lens of the medium-low) .rnIn definitely not recommend this to those who aim only sports or nature photography (rather wait and take a good used or the 100-400 70-200 usm is not) but I recommend instead to those seeking a lens for all uses and in sostituzuione the classic optic kit APS-C, or at least to those who can not afford purchasing a series L. rnEDIT (22 aprile 2015) I recently bought a 70,200 IS II. The review, after trying this perspective more professional, remains valid and I repeat that the Tamron AF behaves very well, almost like the mythical toed without limiters distances of MAF, though, once you have entered these, there storia.rnVoto: 8.75 / 10

Opinion: For what it costs is a good choice, especially if purchased used on 200-250 euro.rnResa and good sharpness from 70 to 200, the stabilizer helps, is certainly no miracles but does his duty, as the construction is plasticky discreet and not tired when used for several hours, I recommend it to those who do not want to spend too much for a tele and has no great pretensions. The AF is a bit 'slow and sometimes misses the focus, we must learn to know him.

Pros: Weight, good sharpness (but not excellent) throughout the zoom range, the stabilizer. Handy and practical. Price.

Cons: Focus thread slow and noisy (at least my copy), when used in soft TA to any excursion. Not very bright.

Opinion: Using this perspective on a Canon 40D, so APS-C which consequently becomes a 112-480mm and I would say that is a great zoom that performs its job very well. I have always had as Sigma lenses and I have to say that, indeed, the quality of this zoom is not particularly excels, however, is a good compromise quality / price. Has the great advantage that, if used for an entire day hanging around his neck, you should not go to the orthopedic control.

Cons: for now it is not known

Opinion: I use it with the D700, I bought it because with nikon 24-120 F3.5-5.6 I could not shoot from too far away (portraits traveling). for now I used it in low light to a concert and came out satisfied. considering all the equipment for the FF that port in the backpack, the lens is actually compact and lightweight (of course everything is relative).

Excellent quality up to 250mm, over becomes a bit 'soft at room temperature, closing at f8 the situation improves. rnun Another point in favor of the Tamron is the presence of the stabilizer (not present in 70-200) which provides up to 3/4 stop.

Pros: price, sharpness and stabilization

Cons: weight and quality vary from specimen to specimen

Opinion: Aquistai this perspective, at the insistence of a dear friend. The warnings from the very beginning was that I had to find a copy successful, because in his opinion and other persons to whom he had to buy the same vein, the sharpness and the yield of pure whites depended a lot to copy to copy. So I tried a shopkeeper who had provided at least a dozen with the availability to select a perfect specimen that reflects my expectations. I was looking for nikon mount but the specimens tested showed all the white hot kneaded and photos, with little impression of sharpness. After several tests and a pain in the ass to not be able to describe (for the retailer), I found a connection with 70-300 canon that even today I kept instead of the fantastic 70-200 4 for a greater focal length range and a better stabilization by at least 4/5 stop. What can I say, it's my travel optics, economic and handyman! Up to 200 is fine, 300 is very good. I can not speak well. Obviously, if I want to compare the 5DIII and 70-300 with the D800E and 70-200 vr f.4, I appena purchased, there is no story, but the 70-300 is always a great optic for the quality / price ratio.

Pros: Stabilizer crazy, colors, blur, image quality, good coverage of focal lengths

Cons: lack custody, on a tripod low level to the focal length of 300 mm is not very firmly due to the weight ... not just silent auto focus and stabilizer

Opinion: The construction of the lens is good (keep in mind that as far as I was used to the telephoto zoom Nikon 55-200 DX) the weight begins to be felt but not excessive. The sharpness and image quality are excellent and also the longer focal length does not seem to me that there is this big drop as it was. The colors are bright and very pleasant blur the 9 blades are felt. The precise focus is not always perfect but sometimes mistakes while the stabilizer is great I would say that 3 stop more you allow them a few times I even managed to make the shots to the focal length of 150 mm (APS-C) with time 1/13 of a second where you do not notice the blur. The size with the lens hood is remarkable, especially for me that I was accustomed to other objectives.

During the first day of safari in the Masai Mara we found very late hour (sun already down for a while) a group of male lions (4) and photos taken with the Sigma are unwatchable while those with Tamron are ok and well defined in spite of the poor condition.

The weight is still acceptable and perhaps helps to stay somewhat active and more stable. With sufficient light the sharpness is at the top, and you can see it in the details of the subject! The light is different from the usual: it makes the components more interesting to observe. I found that the easiest post to make better picture itself, without going mad too much!

Cons: In low-light or low contrast sometimes fails to focus immediately but you have to take it back. Support with missing despite the average weight that unbalances the camera on the tripod too. Start and end mechanically stabilizing a bit 'noisy. With little light sometimes the focus is not accurate. On the easel then I had to retouch it manually.

Opinion: I wrote a long review with detailed photos in a gallery posted on my site. Here's the direct link: www.juzaphoto.com/me.php?pg=49617&l=it Maybe it's very long to read, but it can help those who are about to make a good purchase, without spending a fortune! For now I'm quite happy with the shopping done. You can find different prices on Internet sites, however, the average price is around 320 Euro and is great for offering the sharpness this lens!

Pros: Good image quality, fast AF, the stabilizer does its job well, good construction, lens hood, price

Cons: to 300mm lose quality if you close the aperture to F7.1 at least the rest is fantastic!

Opinion: After a year that I own every time I mount it on my canon seems as exciting as the first time! RnSoldi well spent! good image quality, a shame to 300mm but the quality is not a problem by closing the aperture by 2 stops, the stabilizer works very well and so far I'm satisfied! rnlo advice! :)

Pros: Value / Price - Capacity up to 200mm - powerful Stabilizer - Lightweight - Filter diameter - many aberrations contained

Cons: A bit soft at 300mm - Af "fast enough" and without a limiter - the bokeh is not his strong

Opinion: A lens that compared to the price is great but that obviously has its flaws otherwise would have cost twice as much, its biggest flaw is the bokeh, very bad in many situations, AF is silent, not very fast but still good even if a limiter would be beneficial , aberrations are really very small, soft to the maximum focal length, but how many zoom with a high focal length does not become?! rnNella its price range I highly recommend it, to have something better you should spend more than double !

Opinion: A great buy! With 300 € you are holding a canvas that can give great satisfaction! Fast, quiet, well-made ... say that in addition, you will also see the hood! perhaps the only flaw is that it lacks the ring tripod, but for now I'm using mostly free hand, so ... rnLo recommend it to anyone, given the cost then ...

Pros: AF fast, almost too perfect to 300 mm, very good stabilizer, Price, 5-year warranty.

Cons: Indeed it is pesantino then the ring to the tripod would have been handy.

Opinion: I have worked for a few days and I did find really great, so I sold my Canon 55-250 to go to the Tamron. The AF is really fast and accurate, able to maintain focus even birds in motion, the only flaw I noticed was the subject contrastai just a little effort to focus, but it compensates with the AF-Full . Excellent image quality even at the 200 mm focal addition you lose very little in sharpness between F8 and F10 from the best. The stabilizer is a bit noisy but it works great, vignetting absent. It 'sa bit heavy, but I must say that you hold very well, it has the right weight that makes you maintain stability, but this is entirely peronale. I confirm that it is perfectly compatible with the teleconverter 1.4x kenko pro DGX 300 is a big plus. For a little over € 300, there is nothing better.

Opinion: Absolutely worth all the money it costs. Excellent yield up to 250 softens towards 300. Fast AF stabiizzatore very effective although noisy. Too bad for the zoom ring, outside that is covered dalparaluce supplied when mounted upside down and therefore unusable. The absence of the ring for tripod is somehow be overcome with the use of the ring for 70-300L Canon. Heavy and solid conveys a feeling of strength, has the zoom ring takes a nap.

RnMolto fun to use, the quality of the shots is not great when it is still very good, even in extreme conditions (for es. 300mm and TA). rnLo stabilizer is very very effective (something essential of these focal lengths), although a bit 'noisy, autofocus is accurate, fast and silenzioso.rnInfine is equipped with a lens hood very effective and of good construction .

Pros: Price, Durability, Full-Time Manual Focus, stabilizer, 5 year warranty, Engine USD

Cons: Soft full-aperture

Opinion: I bought this lens for about 6 months, it's my first telephoto lens, the price is very good, € 330 new on Amazon, already see it gives the impression of being a perspective of a good standard, very solid and with good finishes. The ability to adjust the focus manually inserted even if the auto focus is really useful in some situations, the stabilizer does a good job. From what I could see from my shots, 300 mm aperture is closed from 8 to 11 to get a good sharpness at 5.6 is soft. Really is giving me a lot of satisfaction, I use it for macro photos (not having a specific optical) and gets along pretty well, allows you to stand at a distance of 1.50 to 1.80 meters by small subjects without getting too close to the running risk of them escape. The focus seems very good, fast focus and silent thanks to the ultrasonic motor. Another important thing is the guarantee of 5 years and is sold with the lens hood. The weight does not seem at all excessive.

Opinion: is great at the minimum focal 70mm up to 135mm even at maximum aperture, excellent F8 to get a little soft from 270mm to 300mm maximum focal length, unfortunately as I said in the other hand, in my example the focus is often inaccurate, but it is a defect I tried my copy to a friend of mine and the photos are all in perfect focus. rnTutto in all a good lens for those who do not want to spend troppo.anzi better not exist at this price.

Cons: If I find one stabilizer a little noisy ... but who cares ...

Opinion: The best first tele-lens for Canon L-series quality / price unbeatable sharpness suck, f / 4 is a tad soft but from f/5.6 to f/11 is a knife ... beautiful colors, good contrast, little PP thanks to these qualities ... USD fast autofocus, the stabilizer is a little noisy, but once activated, can also achieve 100dB noise because its effectiveness forgive all the noise that can make a real rock ... un'po pesantino (I like) but with a nice BG's all pretty balanced ... plastic hood but quality seems very solid.

The build quality is good: all plastic but high quality, metal clasps course. The zoom and focus rings are well used. Bello also petal-type hood with non-reflective coating. The stabilizer is noisy and nervous at the time of activation, but once running it seems to use the tripod so accurate. I think there is no other telephoto at that price again (280-340 €) of this quality.

Opinion: If your wallet is crying and you want a telephoto lens that will do his duty in terms of sharpness, stabilization and bokeh. The above will do for you! It's really fun lens I really like for its speed, robustness and reliability. When I think that I paid 335 euros NEW in physical store, I still feel I have made an internal through eight!

Pros: Fast AF, good detail even at 300mm, weight, price

Cons: price, at least the one for Sony, because despite having no stabilizer costs the same versions with stabilizer. It has the feature that the other macro economic Tamron has more and that for me was very helpful.

Opinion: My opinion is influenced by the fact that they have only owned the other 70/300 of the Tamron, the small of about 140 euro. rnLe sizes are good, as well as the weight, photos up to 300 mm are rich in detail (I septum opening at f8), I miss a field test that I will carry, and soon will complete the review of this objective that the first impressions almost excites me. Mean-field pictures outdoors in the countryside, birds. Used autofocus extremely slow small 70/300 this seems like a thunderbolt, but reading the various opinions on the subject is just fast. Quality seems robust even if it is plastic, but remember that it is a lens to be just over 300 euro. I also find it very luminoso.rnAdesso I changed brands (I took the Nikon D600) I have the Nikon version, repeat the previous sensations and add an opinion on the stabilizer, a little noisy but absolutely fantastic, practically stops the world!

Cons: Rarely (1 out of 200 shots) focus when you get close to the minimum distance of fire if there is a good contrast busts. Morbino at room temperature up to 270mm.

Opinion: I was lucky enough to have a gift that lens and now I'm impressed. The image quality is very high up to 270mm. At f / 8 to a maximum of itself. A 300mm should always keep it closed at f / 8 and, if possible, until af/11-f/13 improves again slightly. The defects are very few. This objective, for this range of use, it deserves a full 10.

Pros: Very rugged, very good image quality, very effective stabilizer, autofocus fast, quiet and precise, relatively light price.

Cons: stabilizer a tad bit noisy, a bit soft at 300mm at room temperature

Opinion: It 's my first and only lens of home Tamron and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised: the 350 (or so) euro spent on this lens is a very low figure when you consider what it can offer. The feeling of strength as soon as it is removed from the boxes is amazing (even the hood gives the impression of being nice solid and durable), the zoom ring does not have games and offers the right amount of resistance. Once mounted on the machine surprising effectiveness of the stabilizer (to a first approach seemed a bit 'noisy, but it has never been a problem, especially because it plays very well his work) as well as the prowess of autofocus ( which has the convenient full time manual focus, which I have been able to benefit in some situations). The images obtained with this paintings are very good throughout the focal range, there is a slight decrease if you use at room temperature to the maximum focal length, defect, however minor and resolvable chiudento to 7.1. Last but not least, I really like the bokeh offered by this lens for all of these features, consider it a good buy. Every time I pull it out from the bag I think I was right to buy it and will replace it (maybe) when and if I decide to make the leap to move to the 100-400L.

Pros: Stabilizer phenomenal, good sharpness almost all focal lengths, autofocus good (not as USM Canon but still great) construction in relation to the price I would say excellent.

Cons: Not yet received

Opinion: This 70-300 is a really good lens, and has all the credentials to be the reference in this price range. Do not worries even his counterpart Canon as it costs at least € 100 more and I think it loses on all fronts (autofocus in the first place.) What can we say, the quality is excellent, it is certainly not perfect, has some aberration and 300 to TA is not just a knife but it is great if diaphragmed and again, for what it costs is really a best buy. Rated 9!

Pros: Good optical quality, low price, good construction, excellent stabilizer, lens hood, lightweight.

Cons: Sometimes in low light or distant subjects takes a fraction of a second longer to focus on the subject. Sometimes blurs the maximum and then return to heat and this is wasting precious seconds. But we are talking about borderline cases. In normal conditions it is perfect.

Opinion: Objective affordable with a value / price unbeatable. I use it for 10 months for hunting or traveling photographic stalking. I arrived to crop the images as much as 50% and if the shot was not done at high ISO and closed a little 'f/8.0 aperture is obtained, however, very beautiful photo and defined. Sure, 300mm is not enough for this type of use, but again, for what it costs is unrivaled as a lens "beginner". In addition to learning how to approach the birds is an excellent school: when the lens is short you need to work your brain and find new ways to reduce the distance to the subject! Highly recommended to all aspiring photographers. Putting away the pennies worth only change the focal length, to go to a 400mm or 500mm. At its end, in my personal judgment, has no major rivals.

Opinion: Purchased on offer in € 330, this lens already stunned when you pull out of the box: it is really well built, with no games and a weight (I consider this a pro) which helps to give a solid feel. When it is mounted on the machine then the urge not to remove more, the autofocus is very fast, discreet and stabilizer is phenomenal (with a little 'technique you can go down to 1/20 even at 300mm). Finally the image quality: very good, is worth at least double the price paid. That said, if you want a canvas with good quality without spending a fortune this is the lens for you. =)
