  • Conclusion: The other standout feature is Tamron's Vibration Correction (VC) system - an optical stabiliser that offers 4-stop performance in fending off camera-shake.
  • Pros: Fast and near-silent USD autofocus, with full-time manual override, Very effective 4-stop Vibration Correction, Sharp at all but the longest zoom setting
  • Cons: Lacks sharpness at 300mm zoom setting with widest f/5.6 aperture, £50 more expensive than Sigma's 70-300mm OS lens

5 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 SP Di VC USD is a very welcome new option in the tele zoom lens class. The lens is capable of delivering a very good to excellent center quality combined with good to very good borders/corners. Lateral CAs are low and not objectionable from a field perspective.

Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 SP Di VC USD (EOS) - APS-C Format Review / Lab Test

photozone.de
5 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD performed fairly well in our full format test but it is a more desirable lens on an APS-C DSLR. The resolution figures are very high in the scope and that's, at least mostly, across the image frame.

  • Conclusion: The fantastic image quality from this lens places the Tamron high in the 70-300mm field. With such a modest price-tag and a reliably responsive VC mode, it really does have a lot going for it. Our only gripe is the fact that it really needs a tripod ring.

  • Excerpt: Tamron-objektivet fylder og vejer som det originale objektiv på 70-300 mm og balancerer fint på kameraet. Dog går zoomringen lidt mere stramt og ikke helt så jævnt. Der medfølger en god modlysblænde.

Tamron SP 70-300mm F4.0-5.6

  • Summary: Et zoomobjektiv på 70-300 mm er et perfekt supplement til en normalzoom, og Tamrons nye har både ultrasonisk fokusering, innebygd bildestabilisering og to linser med lavt brytningsindeks og dermed all den teknologien som finnes i tilsvarende originale objektiver.
