Pelo preço, perfeita!

Summary: Penso que pelo preço não poderia ser melhor. É uma lente de muita qualidade, não ficando atrás em nada em relação a minha antiga Sony 18-70mm. Essa lente é muito boa. Estranhei o fato de, em todas as fotos, aparecer uma mancha escura no canto esquerdo, como uma sujeira. Será mofo? Foi comprada lacrada, na caixa.
Summary: Really a great lens for the money. It sometimes seems to hunt for a focus, (maybe an autofocus issue) which causes an occosional bad shot when taking quick pictures but usually very good. I'm just an amature, but really like this. For what I use it for it's the most versital and light weight lens I've found.
Tamron AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II LD Zoom Lens
21 February 2011
Summary: There's no such thing as a free lunch and the Tamron is no exception here. The extreme zoom range combined with the small lens dimensions comes at cost of some compromises. One is the rather slow max. aperture which limits the creative potential regarding shallow depth-of-field and the other compromise is, naturally, optical quality. In absolute terms the lens shows rather extreme distortions at the 18mm and vignetting as well as border quality don't impress either.
Summary: I've read a lot of reviews from apparently knowledgeable people who claim that Canon is far superior to Tamron. Maybe so. But for the average Amateur Photographer such as myself and most others, you will not see a noticeable difference between this lens and the Canon 18-200. Noisier yes, but the picture quality is very close.
Summary: I bought this lens to use as an all purpose lens. The zoom range gives you wide angle to telephoto all in one lens. I mainly shoot cars and people, often at events, so I need a lens that can go wide enough to shoot an entire car at close range or a large group of people, as well as pull in a car or person at a distance. I had bought the Tamron 28-300 zoom first, but found the 28 mm focal length (at the APS-C format) isn't wide enough for group and whole car shots.
