Reviews and Problems with Tamron 70-210mm f/4.0-5.6
Showing 1-10 of 28
A really nice little manual focus lens.
9 May 2011
Summary: This is a nice, little lens! Great zoom range, very good image quality. Very good build quality. I use it on a micro 4/3 camera, where its small size is most helpful. I like Tamron Adaptal lenses, I especially like this one. The $30 price (NIB) made it even better!
I will buy it again, it has good IQ and is light weight.

Summary: This is a very useful lens, it replaced the very heavy 70-210mm lenses I had. It is very light and has good IQ. You cannot beat this lens for the price. You can get a PKA and it will work on the Pentax just fine, the DSLR will read all the information. You only have to manage the focus manually. Great lens by Adaptall Tamron.
Summary: I LIKE IT I LOVE IT I WANT SOME MORE OF IT.......I TRIED SO HARD I CANT RISE ABOVE IT.......DONT KNOW WHAT IT IS ABOUT THIS LITTLE LENS LOVING BUT I LIKE IT I LOVE IT I WANT SOME MOOOOOOOOORE OF IT !!!!!
Summary: I bought this lens becoue of it's zize and specifications from 70 to 210MM. The price was excellent and since it was a Tamron lens it means if I buy a tamron Pentax mount and a Minolta MAXXUM mount I can use this lens on my three camera Systems and in my Pentax Digital SLR. The one flaw I found was that it was listed in the AF lenses section and it is a Manual focus lens. I can learn to live with that.
Summary: I use this lens with a Sony A58 and it's a great combination. The auto focus is accurate and silent which is great for shooting wildlife. The quality too is awesome - obviously, it needs a steady hand with the correct exposure, etc to bring out the best in this lens (as is the case with any lens), but magnificent results are possible, sharp, lovely colours and smooth bokeh.
A must have piece of glass for any budding amateur photographer

Summary: I agree with most other reviews, it has quick crisp quite focusing and the picture quality is great... However I have a few little niggles which has stopped me from awarding 5 stars. 1. The lens hood is so large it's hard the replace the lens cap. 2. The lens cap "pops" off too easily 3. The manual focus ring has no "stop" point, it just keeps spinning, which is annoying when trying to find infinity focus in the dark. 4. The price.
Summary: This lens gets 5 stars for good reason, it works! its relatively cheap and the auto focus drive is silent. slightly heavy but that makes it more stable, takes good clear,sharp pictures. If you do not want to pay a lot for a lens that gives performance close to much more expensive ones then buy this.
