Excerpt: Excellent all around lens for varying use. I am impressed with the photo quality especially for the price. Decent low light performance for a bigger lens. We have put to use inside a school auditorium where lighting was poor, outdoors for prom pictures which were excellent, and outdoors for nature.
Excerpt: I had this lens approximately 1.5 years now. I am satisfied, for the money you cannot go wrong. Tamron quality and durability. Primarily used for my everyday walk around lens, travel, portraits, wildlife, and macro. Does creep so be sure to employ the lock switch when walking.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this Tamron after researching a number of zomm lenses. I was getting tired of lugging around 3 -4 lenses and wanted to consolidate before taking a few trips aroudn New mexcio and Arizona. I've only had it a couple weeks but, so far, I'm very pleased. Very versatile and quiet.
Excerpt: This lens is just fantastic. I recently travelled in the Philippines and the pictures/photos were just beautiful, no complaints. I took about three(3)thousand pictures and almost all the pictures were perfect.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
