Summary: Great product. Just as good as a Nikon lens. Someday when I can afford a lens that is more than 200mm (either Nikon or Tamron) I will get that but for now, it certainly does what I need it to do. Very impressed with the performance...
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 !
Summary: Bought this as a gift for my daughter and she, absolutely, LOVES it! She has middle and high school age girls who are quite active in school, as well as community, activities!! The photos she has taken with this lens are awesome and she now is able to capture more thanks to not having to change...
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.
