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: 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.
Summary: Recu dans les temps et bien emballé. Excellente construction, bagues souples et assez bien disposées. L'anneau de fixation sur pied est bien fait, solide et donne un bon équilibre. Mais après quelques dizaine de photos à pleine ouverture et à 200 mm, je constate que toutes sont floues !
