Excerpt: Bought this to shoot my kids sports, but now more excited about the Macro. The lens does have some weight to it, but I like that. The auto focus isnt the fastest, but is better than my 55-200 Nikon kit lens. Very happy with the quality of the item and photo image, even happier witht the price.
Summary: I gave this lens fours stars but in my head I am thinking five stars. I used it when I need to get photos of my wife running a 5K. It gave me the reach that I needed. My best portrait of my daughter was taken with this lens. The reason it only got 4 stars is that I took it out to shoot eagles and the auto focus was too slow to get the flying birds. I was able to get some great shots that same day using a Canon 400mm L lens.
Summary: I have used this lens for varying events (XC events, football games, track meets etc). I am very pleased with it, it has meet all of my expectations and more. Takes wonderful shots when you take your time, I am looking forward to using this lens on the Sony A58 which I am looking forward to purchasing in the near future.
Summary: I purchased this lens for a vacation to some of the National Parks. I owned a 70-250 mm 2.8 lens which is a great lens but is heavy and much larger. this lens is light and has vibration reduction. It produced very nice results as a hand held lens and because of its weight I was able to secure the camera to a tripod instead of the lens. this allowed for a quick transition when needed.
Excerpt: I was looking for something that would extend to 300mm but that would be easier to carry and hand-hold than my Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6. I tried the Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6, but I was disappointed by the resulting IQ. Thanks to B&H's excellent return policy, I was able to return it and order the Tamron 50-300 f/4.6-5.6. I couldn't be happier. It was just was I was looking for.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
