Decent lens, but there's 2 versions it looks like.

Summary: The lens offered appears to have changed alittle. When I bought it back on 3/13 there was no autofocus motor in the lens and was listed as model number A15. Now a new picture appears clearly showing an autofocus motor and the model listed as (A15N).
Summary: Pros: Compact Light-weight Good feel/build, looks great too! Wide coverage of focal lenghts Cons: Poor image quality Loss of contrast I bought this lens about six months ago for my Nikon D60, despite the fact that it would not auto-focus with my camera.

Summary: I have owned and used this lens for over a year. If you are a professional and need an expensive L series lens ... then this lens is not for you. The target market for this lens is D-SLR owners fitted with standard zoom lenses.
Summary: I did not realize that this would not autofocus on a nikon d3000. I bought it for my son for Christmas.. If I had known that I would have bought something else. They should point that out in the description.
Tamron AF 55-200mm F/4.0-5.6 Di-II LD Macro Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras
23 July 2008
Summary: Excellent lens!! I purchased this lens because I just started back doing photography and did not want to spend alot of money on equipment straight out. My nikon uses this lens without any problems, it is definately worth more that you pay for it and it gets the job done.
Summary: I'm satisfied for the price that I bought this lens($70). Keep the following in mind before purchasing: This Tamron lens is suitable for use with Nikon cameras which have a built in autofocus motor. There are some Nikon camera bodies that will not power the autofocus mechanism in this lens.
Summary: I bought two of these because I found a crazy deal somewhere, $40 each. Even with this terrifically low price, the lens is really lackluster. First of all, with "macro" in the title, I expect it to be a macro lens.
Summary: I picked this up to use with my Nikon D7000 temporarily just to test it and explore with while I was deciding on other lenses. If you are looking for a nice little lens you should consider this. It's a nice starter lens. You can always pass it along should you decide to upgrade at a later time.
Great Bargain, but there are a couple of minor caveats

Summary: I just bought one of these recently and have been testing it like mad. It seems sharp as a tack, and nice and light. An incredible bargain at $40! Only one fly in the ointment, though: When using this lens, my D200 underexposes by about a full stop.
