Tamron 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 XR Di Aspherical IF Macro AF review by joe88

  • Summary: it is comprehensible that it is very difficult for a manufacturer of lenses to correct image mistakes of such a big zoom range. Nevertheless the middle range is phantastic; the extremes of tele and wide angle are still very good, with some CA's. ok. But everybody has a good photo program, nowadays.
  • Pros: big zoom range and extremely sharp betwee 50 and 135mm
  • Cons: some CA's, sometimes visible

  • Summary: Hi I bought it for my digital Nikon D 70s since the crop factor makes it into a 42 to 300 mm lens and used with the Nikon 18-70 mm lens it covers a full range of my type of pictures makes for a great setup also it takes great pictures, I just need the Nikon for wide angle pictures .

New Glass, New life for a trusted Pentax Spotmatic !!

  • Summary: The Tamron 28-200 AF-D LD Aspherical lens I purchased had been converted to a Pentax screw mount. I purchased it for my very old Pentax Spotmatic 35mm film camera. I am excited to find a very modern, high powered optic. This is a very compact, lightweight zoom.

  • Summary: I bought this for my son to use on the film SLR that I gave him to mess around with. For him it is a perfect all around lens. I have been stealing it from him for my K5 when I want to go around without my bag.

Excellent quality at a reasonable price.

  • Summary: Honestly, photographers go crazy over lens specifications. But honestly it just comes down to ability as most modern lenses can do a decent job, if used correctly. This lens, while not high-speed by any means, will suit most peoples needs.
