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: 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: This lens has performed well, expecially given the modest price. I don't use a telephoto often so didn't want to pay too much. This lens is a bit plasticky but it is very light as a result and all the controls are smooth. It even comes with a lens hood.
Summary: This lens is a fantastic piece of kit for the price. I bought one for my canon 500D! I can see no visible picture quality change even at the furthest focal length. The zoom is relatively large and it has a wider zoom at 55 than some of the bigger zoom lenses that start at 75.

Summary: Having read many positive reviews on this lens, I decided to go for it and coupled it with my SONY A33, expecting it not to be so great because of the price. Now, the lens is made in china and the mount is plastic, but that aside, it is constructed very well and the zoom feels smooth and solid, with...
A good, useful telephoto to follow on from the kit lens

Summary: The Tamron AF 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Di II LD telephoto lens is targeted at people who've just started with a DSLR, played with the 18-55mm kit lens, and then decided that they want more range without having to spend a vast amound of money while they're still getting to know the camera.
