OK lens but watch the warranty

Howard F. Meyer Jr., Amazon
16 September 2013
  • Summary: When I rated this lens I factored in the photo quality AND the service provided by Tamron. I use it on a Nikon D800 and find the sharpness acceptable. What I don't find acceptable is the way Tamron handles their warranty. I have had this lens for 5 years. The warranty is 6 years. When I tried to use it in movie mode, it would not focus in live view. Tamron said it needs to be serviced to correct the problem.

Not a very good lens

Ana, Amazon

  • Summary: I just got the lens yesterday from the port agent where i address the package because i work on the Cruise Ship, the lens is very disappointing because of its bad quality, blurred and soft image. i really want to send this lens back and get a Sigma 18-250mm for my pentax, if amazon will only give this chance i will not stop buying things from your website, amazon knows how much money i already spent in their site and i am one of their good customer.

The worst

Mark B. Anstendig, Amazon
29 September 2011
  • Summary: We have two of these lenses. Both shut down and stop working at long focal lengths. Tamron wants to charge 140 dollars to fix each one, even though the fact that both have the same defect shows it is their fault. Forget Tamron. They do not stand behind their products and the product is a mess to use.

A complete waste of my hard earned pay .

Harley Dude, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens is slow, noisy, and soft. I struggle to find enough light for long focal length shots. The noise of the auto-focus annoys me so much I wonder if the internal parts aren't grinding into pieces. And I've yet to take a photo that's sharp and acceptable - they are all incredibly soft. The focus is so bad I wonder if there might be a problem with the specific combination of my Canon 20D and this lens.

Kombination mit Sony (Alpha 7 + Objektivadapter LA-EA4) geht nicht -> kein Autofocus

FEP, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • Summary: Hinweis: Diese Rezension bezieht sich nicht auf die Qualität des Objektivs sondern nur auf die genannte Kombination. Um Ihnen denselben Aufwand (Anfragen an Hersteller, Rücksendung,...) zu ersparen, würde ich dringend empfehlen die Kombination Kamera - Adapter - Objektiv vor dem Kauf zu testen.

LCD-Monitor der Kamera funktioniert nicht mit Tamron-Objektiv

ba31182, Amazon
12 November 2013
  • Summary: LCD-Monitor funktioniert nicht zusammen mit einem Tamron-Objektiv. Der Monitor bleibt dunkel. Man muß unbedingt den Livebild-Modus einschalten und dann dauert der Focus für ein Bild ca. 10 sec (!). Das ist kein Fehler, es ist so! Canon unterstützt nicht Tamron (und auch nicht Sigma-Objektive). Somit ist die Kamera nicht tauglich für Reisefotgrafie!

Falsche Angaben gemacht !

wiegel67, Amazon
1 February 2011
  • Summary: Obwohl als gebrauchtes Digital Kamera taugliches Objectiv im Angebot angegeben wurde ein altes Objectiv gesendet. Da dies nicht kompatibel mit Digitalkameras (wie zum Beispiel EOS) ist, ist das Objectiv bei hoher Brennweite fast unbrauchbar. Klarer Fehlkauf da fälschliche Angaben im Angebot gemacht worden sind. Leider habe ich das erst jetzt bemerkt, da ich im Urlaub war.
