Really good lens
15 November 2013
Summary: Wow! this lens is wonderful. Pictures are really sharp. Normally, these all-in-one lenses are not used at night, however, I tried it and the pictures I got at night are stunning. It is really worth the investment.
Good lens, great glass and producing super photos in my outdoor photography

Summary: I am using this lens on an NEX7 with great results, I will be selling my Konica 80-200 now as it is manuel focus and about twice as heavy as the Tamron. I will say though the manual focus on the Tamron at 200mm is a bit soft compaird to razar sharp on the Konica. anyway I'm happy with this purchas: Larry. NOTE: Had to send lens to Tamron Canada to remove a spot of oil on inside of front lens. The spot just appered while shooting wildlife on the so.TX. coast.
Summary: This lens is a great addition to my collection lennses came well packaged in the box and was suprised with the quality of the lens itself nice feel, lock to the camra smoothly and fits firm with no movment or shake, feels good in your hand and when the zoom lens is fully extended it does not collape on itself like the sony version.
Summary: I've been using this on my nex5n for just over a week now and am really impressed - very quiet and fast,great image quality, just what I needed - I use the camera mainly for travelling, where size and weight are critical. A few weeks ago I bought the LA2 adaptor so I could use my existing sony lenses (especially my 18-250), but with adaptor and lens fitted, I might as well have taken my dslr!(so LA2 returned). Instead, bought this and am very pleased.
Summary: I think wolf's head was unlucky, I think that the lens meets and surpasses expectations. It's relatively sharp through most of its range and it's focus is fast acceptable for stills- not so good for video. I would rate the lens 8/10 for build- 7/10 for performance, great travel lens.
Summary: This lens looks and feels cheap, but having downloaded lots of sample images taken with it, I decided I could live with its defects and bought one. It arrived loose in a box about six times the size of the lens box inside with only a small screw of brown paper for company. On the camera, it gave about one fairly sharp image in 20, the rest being oddly blurred - more like camera shake than poor focus.
