Real Quality Lens for Sony Emounts !!

Ernest F. Carneau, Amazon
31 October 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this lens for my NEX-7. I purchased the all black, due to the fact it goes with my NEX-7. I've gotta say that I'm really impressed with the build quality, and performance of this lens! It, like all compromise lenses, covers a large range of focal lengths.

Great option for eos m3.

Robert B. Pratt, Amazon
19 September 2015
  • Summary: Love it! Great image quality and very high quality build. I had to have the firmware upgraded to make the auto focus compatible with the eos m3. This was painless and tamron was fast and did it for free. It works great after the upgrade.

Wonderful lens - but will NOT function at all w/the EOS M3

Ben Herrmann, B&H Photo

Tamron all-in-one 18-200 VC for Canon M3

Ricardo A. S. Batista, Amazon
6 August 2015
  • Summary: I ordered it although I had read in reviews about the firmware fix needed to work with Canon M3. It didn't work so I sent to Tamron, in NY, and one week later I received it fixed. The lens is a all-in-one perfect for traveling.

lightweight and quick on Canon M, M2 good for carry if size is a problem

Bid D, Amazon
16 July 2015
  • Summary: My canon M-2 and this lens are a great team for trips overnight trips good on 18mm side but the 200mm can be a challenge at times. 200mm should be sharp and clear shots as this lens is a APC lens. action shots are hit and miss. got some good and some fair.

Not Working with EOS M3... Yet.

Philtastic, B&H Photo
18 May 2015
  • Excerpt: I love this lens, and it's great with my EOS M and M2, but it doesn't work with the EOS M3. And it's not just an auto-focus issue, or something like that, where you could "ignore" the problem. On my unit, it actually prevents the camera from working at all...
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Doesn't work with Canon EOS-M3, but does work with EOS-M

Justin Robertson, Amazon
1 May 2015
  • Summary: I bought this to use with my Canon EOS-M3. The lens currently doesn't work with the M3, causing the camera to freak out. It works fine on my Canon EOS-M, though. Tamron is aware of this issue (press release at wwwDOTtamronDOTcoDOTjp/en/news/release_2015/0327_2.html - replace DOT with . in the URL).
