Summary: Very nice lens. Works perfectly with my Sony Alpha. Very clear image! Great zoom range. This is my go-to candid lens. I like this lenses better than the OEM lens that came with the camera. Great price too. Winner! Winner!
Summary: I have used this lens with my Rebel 2000 and EOS-3. It's an excellent lens! The auto focus is fast and relatively quiet, the image quality is excellent. The best feature in my opinion is the large lens area, it captures lots of light. This is an A+ lens for the price.
Summary: I have purchased two of these lenses (autofocus version) for our Nikon N-70. I dropped the first lens and something came loose. This is a superb lens. I studied the Modern Photography Magazine ratings to select this lens, which was/is the sharpest zoom lens in the 20-120 range.
Summary: For the price this is an excellent lens but did a side by side comparison with my higher priced Tamron 2.8 17-55mm and there is a clear difference in sharpness and contrast so don't expect perfection.
Summary: I bought the Sony A300 and was immediately disappointed at the image quality produced by the kit lens. So, I started searching for a replacement lens and that's when I came across this Tamron 28-105mm. It offered less WA but longer reach, which I prefer.
Summary: I own a Sony DSLR-A300. I bought this Tamron lens at the recommendation of some other Sony DSLR owners on the forums at Steve's Digicams. At the time, one vendor had them for $39. I could not pass this up, especially after seeing the sample shots posted by users. I was not disappointed.
Summary: Great addition to my Sony Alpha a100. Yes thats right it works with out a glitch with my sony. It takes awsome pictures and goes the extra distance that the standard lens that comes with the a100 can not simply do.
