bad copy?

B. Florence, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • 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.

Newegg or Tamron should give me rebate 50.

Yung-Yi L., Newegg
22 February 2011
  • Pros: just so so. Nothing special
  • Cons: I ordered this one on 12/10/2010 because it has the rebate $ 50. I sent the rebate form to Tamron, but today I got the notice from them saying this item was not included in this rebate. Finally I found one fact: newegg sent the same camera with different model number. Who‘s fault? Newegg or Tamron should give me rebate $50.

NOT MACRO V C not good.

Deb, Amazon
27 May 2011
  • Summary: I like using this lens, saves me having to tkae all my lenses out with me. its not Macro but does take good quality photo's. The Vibration only works on large subjects. if you try to use it on distant shots it vibrates and won't focus. I just use a tripod on long distant shots. i give it 2 stars as its not as descriped. but i do recommend it for a all in one lense and you dont have to carrry other lenses with you.

A Compromise too far?

Tim Kidner "Hucklebrook Hound", Amazon
26 February 2011
  • Summary: If you are a serious photographer, do not be tempted to buy this lens. Dismiss what it is said about how good it is. I was swayed by favourable comments on buyer's sites (such as this) and it isn't. Such a wide-ranging zoom is always going to be a compromise; it's how much of one is the real question. It's not however a total disaster and needs some close scrutiny for its weaknesses to be revealed.

  • Summary: Ambitious concept but ultimately, too much of a compromise. Pro's should avoid. Best at centre at 28mm, though never really sharp.

Knackige Schärfe nicht möglich

Horst Kolmer, Amazon
25 April 2013
  • Summary: Ich habe heute das Objektiv Tamron AF 28-300 F/3.5-6,3 XR DI VC LD Aspherial (IF) Macro für meine Nikon D800 erhalten. Ich habe es sofort an der Nikon anbebracht und vom Speichergiebel aus Fotos von der Umgebung gemacht. um keine unschärft durch verwackeln zu erzeugen, habe ich meist die verschlußzeit ab 1/250 eingestellt und auch höher, wenn ich voll gezoomt habe. den VR habe ich eingeschaltet, Blend f8 und Iso zwischen 100 und 500.

  • Pros: цена - хорош для начинающего любителя на недорогой зеркалке
  • Cons: тёмный, нерезкий, цвета даже не могу описать - какие то ярко/мутные

300 mm bei Tamron entsprechen 280 mm bei Canon

TomGo "TomGo", Amazon
11 May 2010
  • Summary: Habe das Tamron AF28-300mm F/3,5-6,3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical (IF) Macro bildstabilisiertes Objektiv für Canon mit den Brennweiten 28mm bis 300mm und parallel hierzu das Canon EF 70-300mm 1:4,0-5,6 IS USM Objektiv mit den Brennweiten von 70mm bis 300 mm bei Amazon bestellt. Das Tamron deckt die ganze Bandbreite der "gängigen" Brennweiten ab. Ein wechseln des Objektivs ist in den meisten Fällen nicht notwendig.

Viel Werbung , aber beeindruckend war die Qualität nicht... nicht alles glauben...

PlanetEarth "Grande Vita", Amazon
20 March 2008
  • Summary: Hatte das Objektiv mit einer Canon D 400 genutzt. Bekommen habe ich ein Objektiv das laut Hersteller mit Stativ saubere Bilder machen soll. Ich habe mir dieses Produkt zugelegt weil ich am liebsten Freihand fotografiere. Außerdem reichen schon minimale Bewegungen der Motive wie Autos, Vögel, Radfahrer und die Bilder werden nicht scharf und ziehen zum teil unschöne schlieren. Ebenso war es unmöglich während der Autofahrt oder aus einem Bus heraus scharfe Bilder zu machen.
