Excerpt: I am an amateur with my first DSLR. This lens was recommended by a friend and I have found that it meets my current needs. I shoot landscaped, people, and animals. As I am still learning the price was right for a starting lens.
Tamron 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 XR Di Aspherical IF Macro AF review by joe88
3 January 2015
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

Summary: a very good zoom lens for travelling, sports, family etc. good sharpness,high contrast,nice colors, some few CA's on both extreme ends wide open, but they can be reduced by stopping down a few (and the rest by PhSh) 135mm with f11 and macro ring:best results very sharp macro shootings with this lens...
Pros: big zoom range, sharp photos, 135mm very sharp with f11 and additional macro ring
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 . Howie
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.
A good value film era lens that covers a good range for outdoors on a DSLR.

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.
Summary: very small and lightweight. great all in one lens when you don't want to lug your camera bag. Picture quality not quit as good as a nikkor but for the price and my intended use a great lens. This is my 3rd Tamron and very satisfied with all 3.
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.
