Summary: WARNING!!! THIS IS NOT A "VC" LENS!!! THIS LENS DOES NOT HAVE VIBRATION COMPENSATION WHICH IS THE EQUIVALENT TO CANON'S IMAGE STABILIZATION. THE LABEL IS DECEPTIVE!!! I thought I was buying the VC AF USD but the one they shipped to me was the Di LD macro. They ship from Hong Kong so I don't know how much effort it's going to take to resolve this.
Summary: Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 USM 75-300mm Tamron AF 75-300mm f 1:4-5.6 LD TELE-MACRO (672D) Lens If you are looking for a really technical review/ comparison of these two lens, that is not what I am going to do. I am comparing these two lenses for the person who has purchased an entry level Canon DSLR camera and is looking for a cheap mid-range zoom lens. First off, neither of these two lenses are high quality in build or performance.

Summary: Despite specifically avoiding the cheaper Amazon partners from Germany etc and ordering from Amazon themselves, this lens was a grey import. There was no guarantee card in the box and when I went to register it on the Tamron website using the lens serial number it said that the lens would have no warranty of any type and certainly not their 5 year warranty. Beware.
Summary: Great lens at a great price - has dropped down £20 since I bought it last week, and still eligible for £30 cash back until 15/01/12, yet to try it out in anger but a word of caution. Tamron offer a free 5-year extended guarantee for all their lenses sourced from an authorised dealer via the Tamron UK website ([...
Excerpt: Trots många goda erfarenheter och en mycket positiv inställning till Tamrongluggar gjorde den här mig besviken. Jag provade två olika för den första var det fel på. Den andra fick jag bara nästan skarpa bilder med.
