Summary: I may have gotten a bad copy. It didn't autofocus accurately -- not even close. I had to return it. It does have a manual focus mode, which worked, but then it didn't function as a "walk-around" lens, which was why I got it. Pictures were a little softer than my canon L lens, of course, but I have ways to fix that. If the autofocus had worked, I would have kept it.
Excerpt: Adorama's description for this Tamron Lens Hood for Af 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 zoom lens did not specify whether it fits in 62mm or 67mm diameter of the zoom lens. Historically, Tamron first came out the zoom lens 28-300mm AF f/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD [IF] having the diameter of 62mm and without VC (Vibration Compensation)feature.

Summary: I am a realist and read a lot about this lens prior to purchase. I have a 5DII and 6 lenses - 3 of which were expensive. It is all in a large now heavy camera bag. I stopped taking the 5DII out because of the weight and taking 2 or more lenses. I was taking a Sony NEX instead. Love the 5DII had it 4 years now, after a lot of time pondering I took the plunge and bought a nearly new Tamron 28-300mm VC. I am very pleased with it.
Summary: This is a great walking around lens! The glass matches my Nikon glass on the wider end (28-70) and does very well to 200mm. Above 200mm the lens is softer than my Nikon lens at 3x the price, so fo it is a great value across the capabilities.
