My Nikkor lenses work fine with the camera

Robert C Mac, Amazon
14 October 2015
  • Summary: Purchased in 2013 for a trip abroad. It worked very well for a while. Compact and light compared to Nikon equivalent. FX lens was what I was looking for. Now, in 10/2015 on my Nikon D810 has lens focus chatter at short distances.

Lens has a loose screw and gets stuck in different zoom positions

  • Summary: This appears to be a common problem with this lens. I should have bought it brand new considering it will now cost money to open the lens and fix the problem. It's probably the reason it was sold in the first place.

poor autofocus

  • Excerpt: Bought this lens along with Sony a33 from B@H. It really has a good picture quality, great macro capabilities, nice bokeh, BUT... Autofocus simply didn't work, especially on a moving object.

Not very happy

Dee, B&H Photo
1 April 2011
  • Excerpt: I was looking forward to having a nice walk-around or "vacation" lens for my new Sony Alpha 580 camera. I was extremely disappointed in the quality of this lens. It's being returned. I don't know if I got a bad lens, or if this is the normal quality of the lens. It was very "soft" throughout.

OK lens but watch the warranty

Howard F. Meyer Jr., Amazon
10 August 2010
  • 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.
