Summary: I bought this lens for 450 with $100 rebate. Considering other lenses in this price range [Not many, just sigma] this is wonderful lens !! Auto focus is pretty faster compared to many zoom lenses. This is my first time Tamron use and I really love it. Construction quality is way better than competitors. Image quality is no different than NIkon !!!
Summary: This is an outstanding lens (paired with my D5200)! I already own a 35mm f/1.8G prime and a Nikon 16-85 f/3.5-5.6G, and bought this to complete my [amateur] kit. Tack sharp and very fast, and an absolute steal at the price point (especially when it was $100 off when I bought it). I've used this at sporting events as well as the zoo, and have zero complaints. Even the size/weight is very good compared to other similar lenses.
Summary: I bought this to upgrade my current Sony 55-300mm DT lens. I use these lenses at full zoom ONLY and that's where I did all my comparisons. Most lenses in this class are sharper at 200mm and below, but I don't care about that. Mechanically the Tamron has better features. Faster zoom, non rotating barrel, and the ability to manual focus while still in AF mode. Although they both hunt for focus in low light going the full range of focus.
Summary: Read many reviews comparing this lens with the Sony 70-300mm at better than twice the price. I am an amateur and take pictures for my own enjoyment. This lens gave me some great pictures on a trip to Hawaii. Wish I could attach a couple of pictures.

Summary: I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend, he loves the lens and how it came packaged, it was a birthday gift. Loves the fact I also bought the protection plan. The rebate was a great incentive to make us buy the lenses. The photos that we have started to take with this lens are phenomenal. Thank you for the great offer, now if you would send out notices for other great opportunities we may consider more lenses.
Summary: ENGLISH: I bought the Tamron SP 70-300 for for my Sony SLT-A99 two weeks ago, but already has to realize that in the range of 70 to 300mm this lens is actually better than the Tamron 28 300 I've ever had ... What surprised me was the speed of the focus motor is almost the same in both lenses (fast!), but the Tamron SP 70-300 is obviously much quieter.

Summary: I initially purchased the Sony 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 for $50 as part of a bundle with my Sony A77 . I gave it an initial test shoot and was very underwhelmed at its performance. The colors weren't extremely saturated, it was fairly soft and the CA was really bad on the long end. I sold it immediately and saved up a couple more hundred for this lens based on the reviews and it does not disappoint! Build quality is not top notch, but I would rate it 4/5 (very good).
