Great Lens for the price.

  • Excerpt: This is a nice 'walk around', all-purpose lens. Not as sharp as my high end Canon lenses but the wide range is great. 28-300 covers almost every situation I come across on travel or street photography. It is small and light weight. Beats carrying the large, heavy Canon 24-70 and a 70 -200 and having to change lenses in the field. Certainly this lens can make a very sharp image but it needs lots of light and a fast shutter speed. I am very happy with this lens.
  • Pros: Good value for the price, Large Focal Length, Lightweight

Great walk around lens

Photo Engineer, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: All-in-one zoom that is lightweight, small physically and very good optics for the money. Can't match a Canon L-series, but great when you need to travel light. Focus and aperture rings are in opposite positions and rotate in opposite directions from Canon lenses. Experienced Canon lens users will find this very annoying. Lens lock is a nice feature but unnecessary since the focus ring is stiff and there is no creep, unlike my Canon 24-105.
  • Pros: Lightweight

Very Pleased with this lens

  • Excerpt: As a multipurpose all in one lens it does an excellent job. very sharp on the wide end and with sufficient light on the long end can be sharp there as well. Auto focus is quick, VC works very well. This was one of the lenses I took on a recent cruise,and was very pleased with the results. I was a little skeptical when I bought it, but I'm pleased to say it's exceeded my expectations.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Lots of quality for a great price.

  • Excerpt: Dollar for dollar this lens is about as good as it gets. I used this lens with my Canon 6D camera on a hiking trip in Cheaha State Park in Alabama recently. This lens gave me images that are comparable to images I get with my L lenses. Another great advantage to this lens is that it weighs less than half as much as the Canon 28-300 mm L lens, not to mention costing about a third as much.

Great lens for 6D

  • Excerpt: I use this lens for all-around, and lite wildlife/nature photography. It works wonderfully with my Canon 6D, producing very nice sharp images,with nice color. The AF is fast, and accurate. It will probably end-up being my favorite lens for the 6D. I have it's counterpart for Pentax on my K-3, and that also is my favorite lens for that camera.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Great travel lens

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to use while traveling and I am looking to just take one all around lens. I use a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 when I want to take my best images. But, I won't carry such a heavy lens during extended family travel. First thing I did when I got the Tamron lens was to test it against my Canon 70-200mm. No surprise the Canon, which both costs and weighs about three times as much, took sharper photos.

  • Summary: I had a Tamron lens similar to this one for my Rebel and love the flexibility it gives! Very happy that I can do some macro and then landscape spontaneously without changing lenses! Quality product, innovative thinking.

Great Travel Lens

Stuart B., B&H Photo
2 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I think this lens is perfect for travel (which is how it was recommended to me). It is light weight and, of course, the wide range of focal lengths is very desirable. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II. As soon as I received the lens I compared it to my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8. Guess what? The Canon lens produces a more detailed image. The Canon lens also costs directionally three times as much and weighs about 3x as well.

  • Excerpt: Vignetting in all 4 corners with full frame cleans up with Lightroom. Auto focus fast & quiet. Good walk around lens I guess.

Excellent lens

JonG, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have the old Canon 28-300 lens that I've been carrying around for years. It is a great lens but heavy and big. It is hard to lug around on a bicycling trip and out of the question for hiking. I bought the new Tamron 28-300 as a much more portable substitute. It was a Christmas gift so I've only been using it for a few weeks but it has been exceeding my expectations for picture quality.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight
