Excerpt: I have a Nikon D7000 and I take a lot of sports pictures of my Grandson. I bought a 18-300mm f/ 3.5 to 5.6 Nikon zoom that works great for daytime football games but does not do well indoors for wrestling or basketball. Remembering the problems I had last season shooting basketball games in the local rec center, I bought a 24-70mm f/ 2.8 Tamron with VC to use this year.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Excerpt: Needed a fast prime lens for my FX and this one works great. It's compact and lightweight and fits in your pocket, so if you need the extra speed and the convenience of easy carry, get this lens.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Many Nikkon Lenses, Nice Bokeh, Nikon Dx, Nikon Fx, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purchased this lens when I had my D80. It stuck with me on my D7000, and my D600. It's an excellent lens to use for portraits because you can really isolate your subject from the background. The low light capabilities are great, and auto focus in dark locations is much better than 3rd party lens manufacturers. I highly recommend this lens for individuals who really want to get creative with depth of field and have a solid workhorse for walking around.
Excerpt: This is replacing my 24-70 2.8 zoom lens. I found myself always having to compensate for way too much distortion and having to shoot around 50mm anyways just to get a good shot. I figured I should just sell the other and get a 50mm prime. I was really disappointed until I put this baby on. Wow! I am in love. I usually shoot with primes, but I wanted a good zoom to be ready for any scenario since I am now shooting editorial.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: This is a great all round lens to just carry on your camera. Does great portrait and landscape stuff. I bought a Nikon PK13 extension tube and shoot ultra close ups with it. Although the close up tube has a very small depth of focus, it is pretty neat.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this lens two weeks ago, have done two shoots with it at 1.4 in daylight & artificial light as well. I can proudly say that the D.O.F you get from this lens, DOESN'T COMPARE WITH ALL THE OTHERS OUT THERE. Reason? 1. "TACT SHARP QUALITY/FOCUSING", 2. "SOFT, CREAMY D.O.F", 3. "IDEAL/PERFECT CHOICE FOR D-MOVIES". I own a D800, Its ISO RANGE and the MAXIMUM APPERTURE of this lens, its just PHENOMENOL.
