Summary: This is a little bit of a pearl and i am very impressed how good this is for thr money invested; harp good colors and fine macro! of course its not ED or L glass but their own SD(LD) glass and this is visuable.
Summary: Initial impression was very good after taking a few photographs, but then found the actual zoom was not working, very disappointed and even more so when I have to spend the next day waiting to return the item and have to wait 2 to 4 days for a refund.
Summary: I bought this lens 3 years ago to go on my Canon EOS 450D; I was on a limited budget and having read the Amazon reviews and several technical reviewa in photographic magazines and on the Internet, it seemed that this Tamron 55-200mm strikes the ideal balance between price and quality.
Summary: First about me! Ive got a Canon 550D with a 18-55mm mkII IS kit lens who is quite obsessed with crystal clear image quality, but on a budget! I really want the Canon 70-200mm f/4L but as stated funds are low. The kit lens Canon 18-55mm is pretty awful to say the least, soft is not the word.
Summary: I was just reading some of the reviews for this lens and wanted to add some balance to the glowing references that people have been supplying. First lets be up front and say that the lens is really cheap, if you are on a budget it might be the only option for you.
Summary: Perfect lens for my Canon SLR camera, great for amateur photographers while learning new skills, very affordable so you can hold out on paying for more expensive lens until you've mastered the art! This is good for newcomers to SLR
Summary: this lens produces great images that are very sharp and give lots of detial. It is a good size that is not too large and looks quite cool on the end of my sony a300. At the price of under 100 quid i would really reccomend this lens.
Summary: Purchased this to compliment the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 & numerous sub 55mm primes I have. Before picking this up I tried out the Sony 55-200mm which people informed me was a re-badged version of the Tamron.
