Excerpt: This lens has done a marvelous job to my canon t3i It's amazing how a lens can change the quality of a picture and the TAMRON has done it for me ! I mean the stock lens are ok but this TAMRON !
Excerpt: I have to admit, the lens produced extremely blurry photos. B&H has told me to send it back in that the lens might be defective. I will do just that, but should I receive the same results, I will request a refund. Be advised, this is the only issue that I have encountered since dealing with B&H.
Summary: I love this lens! The range from 18 to 200 is perfect for every shot, and the convenient size of the lens means I use the camera much more than I did before. This is the perfect vacation lens when you only want to bring one lens. All the extras in the kit were a pleasant surprise.
and a wonderful lens. While I am not a serious photographer/snob

Summary: Completely as advertised, arrived on time, and a wonderful lens. While I am not a serious photographer/snob, I do find that it works well, is solid and high quality, and allows me to take excellent photos. I highly recommend it as a wonderful alternative to the $900 Nikon "name brand" version.
Excerpt: No change to do long-term test (camera died), but the lens performed really well. It's sharp enough, it's light for its range, and it's compact in size. One drawback, AF is a bit slow, expected for a megazoom. If you're looking for an all-in-1 lens, this is it.
