Summary: works very well on my Nikon D5100, I compared it to sigma 18-250 on Sony A55 it took better pictures at the long end of Osprey inflight ,then the Sigma. That may be me or the difference in cameras .I like them both. Would be hard to say which I like best.
Summary: I was looking for a lens that I could use as an all purpose lens, rather than having to change lenses all the time. I'm not a professional photographer by any means, but I love to take pictures....landscapes, family, wildlife, flowers, etc.
Summary: so far really liking this lens - it replaced both our 28mm-50mm and our 50mm-250mm I decided on it because we were going on vacation and I did not want to be swapping lenses all the time, making taking opportune photos so much nicer, no missing shots due to switching lenses This was recommended by a...
Excerpt: I ordered this as a starter lens for my 7D because I didn't have enough cash for the one I truly wanted. I bought it thinking i would eventually replace it with a canon 28-300mm lens as soon as I could save up the money for it.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Zoom
Excerpt: I haven't had this lens very long, but so far it's meeting my needs. I've used it at family gatherings, as well as taking action shots at hockey games. I have used Tamron lenses (and their customer service) before and have always been satisfied.
Excerpt: This replaces my Canon EF-S 18-200mm. The Tamron is compact, ruggedly built. It focuses quickly and very quietly and produces good quality images with a bit of distortion at both ends. The zoom is a bit stiff after a little use, but it also stays put without a zoom lock.
