Reviews and Problems with Tamron 70-210mm f/4.0-5.6
Showing 1-10 of 32
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.
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.
Summary: make no mistake, this is a substantial lens. super image quality, almost silent in use, but, and it's a big but (imho). the zoom ring cannot be accessed with the lens hood reversed. not ideal but not a deal breaker. overall really impressed with this lens.
Summary: Wow what an astonishing piece of photography equipment for that price as I write this review I'm at knockhill racing beside Perth and omg I must say that me being a 21 amatuer photographer it is certainly an amazing lens for the price your paying the zoom is second to none no fuzzy or pixelated...
Summary: I recently upgraded from the cheaper DI LD version of this lens and am amazed at the difference, I used it at a local woods i often go to and managed some of the best wildlife shots i'v ever got, and that's just my first outing with the lens!
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.
Fantastic alternative to £700 Sony's 70-300 SSM G lens

Summary: This is great lens, fantastic alternative to £700 Sony's 70-300 SSM G lens. 1) Build quality: Build quality is excellent, feels really solid and the zoom has spot on stiffness. Focus ring is a bit on the loose side but I use AF mostly so not an issue at all.
