Summary: I had to return this beautiful zoom lens ONLY because it weighed slightly over 3 pounds!!! Way too heavy for me to haul around and change (think 5 lb. bag of sugar!) so I'm sticking with the f4.5 lens and hope that I will be happy with it.
Summary: Its a good lens, but did not work on my Canon 60d. I tried 2 copies and had same problems. Not sharp at all. I could even get better o similar results with my kit lens (18-135 Canon). So. I returned it. Others find it very good. You have to give it a try.
Summary: On checking the serial number with Tamron, the lens I received turned out to be gray market, and was immediately returned for that reason. The box it came in, had USA and US markings on it, so I'm glad I took the time to double check with Tamron.
Excerpt: I wrote the below comments about my experience with the Tamron 70-200vc and its facility with the Tamron 2x SP Teleconverter. This lens, on its own, is a fine product. Now that I have the Nikon 70-200VRII I can clearly see the difference. The Nikon is superior - albeit far more costly.
Summary: I was very impressed with this lens when I was shooting my dogs and some ducks on the lake during the day. It was a bright sunny day and the aperture was always 5.6 or higher. The pictures were excellent and super sharp.
Excerpt: First and foremost I cannot say enough about the services from B&H. Hands down the best service. Unboxing the lens: (nicely packaged) After holding I noticed I actually think the finish and feel of the lens is better then the Nikon vr2 ( I own it).
Summary: I debated between this lens and Nikon 70-200 F/4. Decided to get this due to faster aperture of 2.8. I regret this decision. Even though Nikon is a bit slower, I don't think the IQ can be any worse. From what I heard Nikon is a very capable lens but I don't own it yet.
Summary: I am having some trouble with the stabilizing on this lens at 1/1000 and up .. seems to work against me. Need to do some tests. Had it for over a year now. Very frustrating. Seems to work better with stabilizing off.
Summary: In Verbindung mit meiner Alpha 77 konnte mich das Objektiv nicht zu 100 % überzeugen. -Speziell in den längeren Brennweiten konnte ich keine wirklich guten Ergebnisse erreichen ( Weichzeichnung sehr stark ) +Bei den Mittleren Brennweiten sehr gut , AF sehr schnell , gute Qualität der Aufnahmen.
