  • Summary: I like the range and size of the lens a lot. I shoot mostly with the camera in manual exposure mode but when I do put it in automatic my Sony A57 automatically turns on Macro, not sure why yet but that is my only real complaint.

  • Summary: Overall, it is okay, so far, after 2days of use for about 2 hours of video. I have not shot any stills yet with this lens. Also, this lens came with its own 62mm butterfly lens hood, which I did not expect (was not in description) and bought one at the same time (as a suggestion from the page) - it...

  • Summary: I purchased the Tamron lens because I desired more options than my Canon 18mm-55mm lens provided. I looked at several lens options including Canon, but for the price the Tamron seemed the better buy.

  • Excerpt: I read other reviews and I thought I would get sharper images. I is regular. Although it was the cheapest offer I could get, so the relation cost/benefit is good.

DIDN'T BUY THIS LENS

  • Summary: It came in but I had to return it. It takes time to focus because aside from your camera, this lens has its own focusing system that would put you behind when shooting some action photo.

Decent For The Money

  • Excerpt: I picked this up to be able to carry a single lens on a recent trip through Europe. It served that function as well or better than you might imagine a lens at this price point would be able to do. Pluses: Wide zoom range; Light weight; Moderately sturdy construction; Ergonomic controls; Nice bokeh.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Perfect fit

  • Excerpt: Very nice, low-range wide-to-telephoto for a good price. Easily navigated to on the B&H website. Good specifications info too. Found it, bought it, had basic shipping and it arrived within 4 days. Very pleased! Will come again, perhaps for a higher-priced, name-brand item.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light
