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. I've seen very good photos on many other cameras, 5D Mark III, Nikons, etc.
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. My order had been re-directed to "Another Deal Site", who according to Tamron, is not an authorized Tamron dealer. They delivered a good gray market lens promptly, but I wanted and was expecting a white-market lens.
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. "I am an enthusiast - not a pro. Lured by the lower cost compared to Nikon's 70-200VRII. Got the Tamron 70-200vc and the Tamron 2x "SP" teleconverter together.
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. Then I took the lens my son's high school football game where the lighting was not great and I was at 200mm zoom most of the time. Any pictures under F4 were very soft and in some cases not worth keeping.
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). The rubber gripping on the zoom/focus ring has a nice feel. The lens has a solid smooth feel. I think the lens is actually a bit smaller in dimension's and weight compared to the competitor's.
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. So I did some test shots with this and Nikon 55-300 (kit lens for D5200) and amazingly Nikon beats this lens in IQ, color saturation. Not to mention Tamron overexposes terribly !

Summary: Vorab zu dieser Rezension möchte ich sagen, das mir zwar gewisse Zusammenhänge beim fotografieren bekannt sind, meine Bilder allerdings (im Vergleich) eher geknipst als fotografiert sind. Das bedeutet, das ich auch keine professionellen Ansprüche geltend machen werde, doch es sollten schon anständige Ergebnisse (also trotzdem scharfe Bilder) mit dem Objektiv erzielt werden (in Relation zu den 0815 Objektiven der jeweiligen Hersteller) Kommen wir also zum Tamron.
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.
