Excerpt: I received the lens on time as expected. The quality of the pictures are very good, my friends like very much. I wish the lens can have OS/IS funtion as we sometimes need to use 300mm for portrait.
Excerpt: This lens is to replace the second Tamron lens that I had go bad with communication errors. This lens seems really nice. Fast focus, works with my 2x tele-converter for a min F8 aperture which works great for the zoo. The macro is good and clear but works strangely.
Excerpt: The Auto focus is Very noisy. (that irritates me)
I also wish there was an image stabilizer...

Excerpt: I needed a solid zoom lens. The price was right. The quality is way higher than expected. I took photos during a friends wedding and they turned out beautifully with this lens.

Excerpt: I use this lens on a Canon EOS 6D. The images are very sharp, even turning out very nicely at 300mm. For the price, this lens shouldn't perform as well as it does. Flare is well controlled, and I haven't noticed any vignetting. It even performs well wide-open, though stopping down still helps.
