Autofocus does not work beyond 50mm.

Adorama

  • Excerpt: Autofocus will work at low focal length but Manual focus is required for 70mm to 200mm. Very disappointed. I don't have this issue with other Tamron zoom lenses I have.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, No Autofocus200mm, Slow Focus

This lens is terrible

67 Roadster, B&H Photo
29 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Reviews said it was slow....it is But it also hunts for focus and when you finally get to take a picture, objects are out of focus. The focus range is great for a walk around lens but since it takes so long to focus or never really gets crisp and clear, you miss shots. This lens is now a paperweight. Bummer, this would be a great lens.
  • Pros: Great Walk Around Lens
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Lens Creep, Slow Focus

Buy it if soft focus sounds good to you

Little Chicken Hawk, B&H Photo
31 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Simply not a lense anyone serious about photography would want to own. My first lense other than Nikkor and possibly my last. I bought it as a knock about lense when shooting things that aren't important enough to bring out a heavier, more professional lense. After viewing the results, I'd rather put up with the additional weight of a higher quality lense - at least the results would be worth looking at later.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Lens Creep, Slow Focus, Weak Casing

Might be good just not for a D40X

J. Delorme, Amazon
8 January 2008
  • Summary: i Got this lens as a christmas present and it ended up being catastrophic. The lens fit onto the camera fine but when you tried to use the auto focus it just doesnt work. The lens is not compatible with any NIKON that does not have the auto focus motor built into the camera in example the D40X. So i cant really say i was happy with it.

Beware..This is a gray market item

VV, Amazon
23 September 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this lens because of the cheap price and the trust I have in Amazon. However, I'm surprised to know that Amazon is allowing is this vendor to sell unauthorized gray market items. The serial numbers on these lenses are compromised and are not recognized by Tamron. This product has no warranty from Tamron and there is no mention about it in the product description which is a shame as we all trust Amazon.com so much.

CANON-Fehler ERROR 01

wama "wa", Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: Von der Bildqualtität darf man nicht zuviel erwarten. Nach einem halben Jahr Einsatz meldete sich der berüchtigte CANON Fehler 01 ("Schlechter Kontakt zur Kamera") Ich schickte das Objektiv in der Garantiezeit ein, nach etwa 8 Wochen (lange Reparaturdauer wegen der Photokina) funktierte es wieder. Ursache des Fehlers: intern hatte sich die Leitung zwischen Blendenelektronik und Kontaktstellen gelöst. Nun nach zwei Jahren meldet sich wieder dieser Fehler.

Da nützt auch der günstige preis nichts

Jedi, Amazon
25 June 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe mir dieses günstige Objektiv mit gemischten Gefühlen bestellt. Einerseits bin ich ja "nur" Hobbyfotograf und suchte ein günstiges immer-drauf-Objektiv. Andererseits möchte ich natürlich auch die bestmöglichen Fotos mit meinem Equipment (Canon EOS 600D) schießen. Ich war jedoch bereit Kompromisse einzugehen.

Enttäuschend mit Sony a290

Leibi, Amazon
11 April 2012
  • Summary: Hallo zusammen, ich hatte mir mit diesem Objetiv ein neues Standard-Objektiv erhofft dass das mitgeleigerte 18-50mm von Sony ersetzt. Bei gutem Licht macht das Objektiv auch wirklich gute Bilder. Wer hier seinen Einsatzzweck sieht, kann denke ich zugreifen bei dem Preis. Es ist gut verarbeitet und schön griffig. Der Autofokus ist zwar etwas lauter als der des original-Objetivs aber noch absolut vertretbar.
