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.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

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

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.
  • Pros: Lightweight

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.
