Great lens so far
3 weeks ago
Summary: These are great lens. I´ve bought used but in mint condition item from Japan and I am really satisfied. Used about month and taken ca 2000 pics with it. Great bokeh and detailed quality. I have Canon D550 camera and going to change it for full frame D6 or D5 to get most light from lens. Good buy!
Summary: Great Lens. Took it on a trip with 45 WWII Veterans (honorflightsouthflorida.org), colors very warm, great bohken effect when zoomed completely in with the ap set at 2.8. My first "aftermarket", won't be my last. Super Crisp focus, quick and quiet.
Summary: I compared the specs between this and the Canon 70-200 IS L series and the reviews and comparisons were very similar. The Canon edges out the Tamron very very slightly but for the $1000 difference, I decided to go with the Tamron. I am very happy with this lens. It appears to be tack sharp at most focal lengths with very little vignetting.
It MAY be a Great Lens, but I got a "Grey Market" Lens w/out a Warranty --Beware of who you buy from!

Summary: Just got the Lens today, and after a few hours of frustration, it's going back. It very well may be a great Lens, but mine came from an outfit called Web Offers, Amazon Prime and all that, Amazon MarketPlace,2-day shipping, and a good price.... BUT nowhere in the copy I read did it say that this was a "Grey Market" Lens, not supported by Tamron USA. As soon as the lens arrived, and I saw the warranty in Japanese, I called Tamron USA, and gave them the serial number.
Excerpt: I love this lens! I have also have the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC Zoom Lens and I love it too. Great lens for a great price. I use both my lens on my Canon Mark 5d III without any problems at all. The VC works wonderfully and the low light abilities are great!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have other Tamron lenses for Nikon so I thought I would try this one as an alternative to an OEM lens. You get your monies worth and a 6 year warranty. Although it doesn't come with a soft case, it fits mounted to my D7100 in both my Kata and Click backpacks (lens hood turned backwards). Attached is one of the first pictures I took w/ a polarized filter.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged
