Excerpt: lens has been returned twice already for repair. once needed new focusing gear.problem is you dont realize there is a problem till you review your pictures and see they are not sharply in focus.would not recommend this lens for that reason.
Summary: This is the biggest waist of money ever. After extensive testing between the cheapest Plastic Canon Kit lens 55-250 and this New Tamron I can honestly say that the Canon wins for clarity and image quality hands down.
Summary: Not very good indoor, and especially with low light. It is not worth to spend money on this product. I have a cheaper lens (70-350) from Canon without shake control and it makes better picture than this one.
Summary: Very disappointed with this lens. Swapped it onto different canon bodies and got same result. About 50% of the time the focus is out giving a fuzzy picture. used a tamron 18-200 to compare and its always pin sharp. Turning the VC off helps but still not successful.
Summary: I purchased this lens on the strength of its very favorable reviews online and also in many photo magazines, I used this lens in comparison to my Canon EOS 7D kit lens the EF-S 18-135mm, can I save you people wasting your time with this lens, in back to back real life tests, the Canon kit lens wipes...
Summary: Je ne suis hélas pas agréablement surpris par cet objectif... D'abord, l'autofocus est assez bruyant, à mon avis, et surtout, la stabilisation est très bruyante, et donne des sursauts dans le viseur qui peuvent surprendre...
