Tamron 55-200mm f/4-5.6 LD Macro Review

  • Summary: The Tamron excels at wide apertures and short-to-medium focal lengths but is numerically weaker at the 200mm setting. Overall this is a very competent and good-looking lens that should appeal to everyone other than photographers for whom a practical manual-focusing option is essential.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality at shorter focal lengths
  • Cons: Minute manual focusing ring

  • Conclusion: Not the lightest in class and not the best build quality in class (but not the worst either), this offering from Tamron is certainly one of the cheapest in class and optically the best performer by a long way.
  • Pros: Amazing optical quality for a budget lens, Price makes excellent value for money, Hood included
  • Cons: Plastic mount (can wear if much lens changing is practiced), AF is a little slow and noisy.

  • Conclusion: Listing the advantages and disadvantages of the Tamron 55-200 mm was a difficult task – practically in all categories it had close to average results. You would be hard-pressed to choose one serious slip-up but, on the other hand, in no category we saw a truly exceptional performance.
  • Cons: noticeable chromatic aberration, especially at 200 mm,, visible coma,, susceptibility to inner flares at all focal lengths,, slow and noisy autofocus,

  • Summary: Dość trudno było w tym przypadku wypisać wady i zalety Tamrona 55-200 mm, bo praktycznie we wszystkich kategoriach notował on wyniki blisko średniej. Trudno więc wskazać jakąkolwiek dużą wpadkę; ale też w żadnej kategorii nie odnotowano wyniku świetnego.
  • Pros: dobra ostrość w centrum obrazu szczególnie dla 55 mm,, praktycznie brak dystorsji dla 55 mm,, znikomy astygmatyzm, winietowanie niezauważalne po przymknięciu przysłony o jedną działkę,, dobre światło f/4.0 trzymane aż do ogniskowej 135 mm,, autofokus, który jak na brak napędu typu ultrasonic, myl...
  • Cons: zauważalna aberracja chromatyczna szczególnie dla 200 mm,, zauważalna koma,, podatność na wewnętrzne odblaski w całym zakresie ogniskowych,, głośny i wolny autofokus,
