Tamron LD A17 70-300 mm lens: great photos and great value.
4 May 2014
Summary: I bought the Tamron LD A17 70-300 mm lens for my Sony A-65. I had two good reasons for choosing the Tamron: the price and the warranty. It takes beautiful long-distance shots and macros. I think I received a great deal and will be looking at Tamron for any future lenses. Now, when I go on local photo safaris with my friend, I won't have to feel jealous of her 300 mm any longer.
Summary: I purchased this for wildlifwe pictures and found that this umit is very clear and easy to install. The reviews were much better than the cannon as I have never used the cannon to prove it for myself
Tamron LD A17 70-300 mm lens is a great lens for distant pictures

Summary: The Tamron LD A17 70-300 mm lens is a great light weight lens for distant pictures where you can not be close to the object you are wanting a picture of. Great for sports, theater, arenas or concerts with awesome detailed imaging. At 12' I can read the head of a dime! This lens I carry with me at all times and I can swap it out in seconds to get pictures when I can not use my regular lens.
A good economy zoom for non-professionals. Dim light requires lower f-stop

Summary: Good for wildlife photography though you may not always get professional results - especially in dim light. But some closeup shots of wildlife that I did get were simply awesome. Maybe the user. The one beef I have is that the AF function suddenly stopped working. You can hear the motor trying but it doesn't budge the focus. My camera bag gets banged around quite a bit on the ATV so I'm not sure if it's rough handling or not.
Summary: So far my photos have been crisp and sharp. My only complaint is that auto focus mechanism is slow and noisy. But, well, I paid a fraction of the price that I would for a comparable lens, so I figure I got a pretty good deal.
Summary: The Tamron was our first zoom/telephoto lens, and so far it's great. Feels solid, works well, focuses reasonably quickly, overall - very pleased. Especially considering value for the dollar - great investment.
Summary: I bought this lens for my daughter. She tells me it is the best lens she has! I have looked at the pictures she has taken with it and I can see an obvious improvement with the focus and color. The seller was very prompt and I was very pleased with my experience with them as well.
