Great Optics! Will NOT work with Tele-Converter's including Tamron's!

Chris, Amazon
26 February 2015
  • Summary: Let me start by saying this lens has great optics, focus is fast and works well on both full frame and APS-C camera bodies. Here's the big problem at least for me, this lens will NOT work with any kind of tele-converter including their own and and nowhere does Tamron state that.

Beware: this lens is NOT compatible with the Canon 70D

Dave Radford, Amazon
23 September 2014
  • Summary: Beware Canon 70D owners, this lens is NOT compatible if you want to use the AF features of your camera. The lens will drop connection to the 70D at random as the new hybrid AF system works to get your shot in focus.

Focusing issues right out of the box.

Bugalydosh, Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: I expected so much more, but it came with focusing problems right out of the box. Focuses accurately rarely when zoomed at 200mm (as compared to my Nikon 28-300mm lens at 200 or even 300mm).

Awesome lens with issues

93octane, B&H Photo
7 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Quality build, optics are amazing. Lens was amazing but had focus issues with my 6D. The focus was erratic and failed focus 3 or 10 shots. Wanted to love the lens, but the focus didn't cut it. I wish Tamron would fix this issues. If they did it would be an awesome lens.

It MAY be a Great Lens, but I got a "Grey Market" Lens w/out a Warranty --Beware of who you buy from!

Richard "coast biker", Amazon

  • 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....

Does not work with any Tele-converter

George G. Bear, B&H Photo
1 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Bought this lens great by its self but it will not work with any tele-converter!!!! Not even Tamron per their web site and e-mails. Sigma's 70-200mm works with their tele-converters but image quality is not much better than the 120-400mm sigma.

MAJOR ISSUE! Please upvote for Nikon users

danno, Amazon
8 October 2013
  • Summary: MAJOR ISSUE! I recently purchased this lens and was not aware of an issue with this lens and the Tamron 24-70 VC combo. For Nikon cameras, both of these lenses show up as the SAME LENS - therefore you cannot save individual AFMA (AF fine tune) values for them.

  • Conclusion: Köpte detta i tron att det skulle vara en värdig motståndare till Canons 70-200. Tyvärr så var icke det fallet, AFen är en total katastrof felfocus både på min 70D och min 5Dmk3, har även provat denna på min kompis 700D och 600D samma problem.
  • Pros: Billigare än de andra 2.8orna, superskarpt i studio/kontrollerat ljus.
  • Cons: Kass AF, ibland total oskärpa i hela bilden, VCn är inte i närheten lika bra som tex tamron 70-300 f4-5.6

Kein 2.8er

Markus & Magdalena Winkler, Amazon
19 December 2014
  • Summary: Es ist schon viel geschrieben worden über das Objektiv. Es ist definitiv hochwertig verarbeitet, der Autofocus und Stabilisator passt, das Bokeh ist schön. Allerdings ist es erst ab Blende 4.0 scharf wobei bei 200mm eine erneute Unschärfe auftritt.
