Good for the money

  • 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.

You get what you pay for.

  • 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. The 18-200mm allows me more flexibility in zooming in less accessible objects though so far I dislike what appears to be a picture clarity not seen with my previous Canon lenses which had stabilization control built in.

  • 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. Minuses: Slow, sometimes inaccurate focus; Soft images.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

  • 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

Didn't like it

  • Excerpt: I wanted something with more zoom than my 28-135 and the pictures weren't as good. Doesn't have IS so could see the shake. Liked the closer up pix but for far away, not as good and clear as my current lens. Returned it after a week.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight

Good deal for the price!

  • Excerpt: With rebate this lens cost $. This alone is a good reason to buy,as I'm saving quite a bit off the 700 dollars I could have spent. I bought it to replace two kit lenses - a Sony 18-55mm and a 55-200mm. In the 18-55mm range, images look better than they do on the kit lens. In the 200 range, the tamron performs slightly worse than the kit lens (with regards to focus.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Focus
