Summary: Lens is quiet, smooth in operation and quick to focus. I have used it in a number of situations and love the results. it obviously if not a sharp as a prime lens but in most conditions provides clean, crisp images. Great all around lens when you don't want to lug around a bag full of glass.
Summary: Purchased to use on vacation. Was to replace my 28-300 Canon "L". What was I thinking? Never going to happen. For the the price it makes an expensive travel all in one lens. Images are good, not as sharp as my Canon L but 10x lighter and that was why I purchased.
Summary: I bought this lens and took it with me hiking in Yellowstone and Glacier National parks. Let me tell you: not having to lug an "L" around makes a lot of difference on the back. I didn't have to sacrifice drinking water to carry a lens. But seeing is believing, right? Well then, mosey on over to the Flickr group for this lens' owners: https://www.flickr.com/groups/a010/ and feast your eyes on photos taken with it.
Excerpt: In short, this is a great all-in-one lens for those that want something better than the basic consumer line, but can't afford or don't want to lug around several Canon L lenses to cover the same zoom range. For many years now, I have avoided third party lenses for my Canon bodies like the plague. I had too many bad experiences early on with poor/slow focus, shoddy build, and incompatibility errors, especially after upgrading software.
Excerpt: Just returned from a two day road trip where space was a consideration. This was a great opportunity to give this new lens a workout on my Canon 6D. Most of my pictures were taken outside using a full range of apertures and distances throughout the day from sunrise to early evening. This lens is amazingly light weight for its range, a plus when shooting all day. Overall I am pleased with the picture results even some taken from a moving vehicle.
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Light weight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have the 28-300 Canon L. I am a amateur so build quality is not of huge importance even though the tamrons is good.Image quality is very close to the same as far as I can tell. Weight and size are a huge advantage. This is a fun lens to use.I can now carry it everywhere without embarrassing my family with the huge white lens. I will probably be selling the Canon. I use it on a Canon 6D.
Pros: Cost, Ergonomics, Image Quality Super Zoom, Iq As Good As My 24-105l, Size, Weight
Summary: I used this on a Canon 6D for two weeks in a variety of situations both indoor and out and it performed wonderfully. Sharp at both the wide and tele end and focuses super fast. Great - 28-300mm reach and still relatively light - Sharp at all lengths. Not prime lens sharp, but a world better than a regular kit lens.
Excerpt: This lens is great. It is compact, light weight, well built and performs very well optically. The autofocus is quick and accurate and the image stabilization is effective. Images are sharp throughout the focal range. The ability to have one walk-around lens for a full frame camera makes it very convenient.
Pros: Consistent Output, Convenient, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Full Frame Compatible, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: This lens is a great addition to my gear for both my cameras, one full sensor,one cropped sensor. The wide angle is true. I really just got this lens but I know i will love it. It will be "all in one" lens for my full frame camera.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens with a Canon 6D. It is very well built, not like a L but really nice, while small and light. The lens looks just the right fit when mounted on the Canon 6D!Weakest focal length is 28mm: hazy at F3.5 then F5.6 much better, but you need F8 for sharp borders (F11 for corners). Then coverage improves with focal length, and around 70mm good image on all the field from F8, then the lens stays very sharp at 200mm near F8 as well.
Pros: Good built quality, Image Quality, Light, Zoom Range
