Excerpt: I travel a lot and got very tired of carrying 2 lens with me. A friend has this lens and really likes it so I bought it . Good buy and great for travel. Light weight and just about does it all!
Excerpt: Very nice lens. Purchased for my new Canon DSLR camera and it matches up perfectly for great pictures. Nice all around lens and small enough to pack comfortably for air travel or extended vacations. Makes very clear photograph and focusing is quick.
Excerpt: I am a hobby photography taking about 200-300 pictures a week. Great lena for the money. Light and compact. I love shooting BIF, wildlife, and nature. Fast lens with wonderful results. There are times that a blurry focus occurs but that is common with other lenses also. Please do not compare a $ product to a $ one. This lens for the money does a great job. I believe Tamron does a wonderful job. I am now waiting to receive the Tamron 150-600mm.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I am an average Joe with a habit of taking lots of pictures when I go someplace. Not a professional by any stretch. I use a Nikon D3200 and I wanted a lens that would do it all and this one is that lens!! I recently went on a cruise and bought this lens specifically to take. My pictures came out WAAAYY better than the kit lenses. I definitely have no regrets spending the money for a good lens.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
