good zoom lens for beginner photographer

  • Excerpt: i use this product for sports and some closeup nature shots. i use it with a canon t3i. the zoom is really awesome but with the extreme zoom comes an aperture thats not constant, meaning the aperture will get small as it zooms in more. so the lens is not that fast with a fastest at f4.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Zoom Range
  • Cons: Heavy, Non-Constant Aperture, Poor in Low Light

  • Excerpt: This Tamrom lens is really a good option.Inspite some minor issues, the image quality and the price you pay for it makes this lens one of the best options on the market.What minor issues?? The image stabilizer button is somewhat protruding, and accidentally can be changed without you notice it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Price
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Great lens!

  • Excerpt: First off I've owned a canon telephoto lens with IS and a Sigma 70-300 non image stabilized. The Tamron far exceeds either of those lenses. The auto focus is quick and accurate most of the time.

Sharp, accurate, great value

  • Excerpt: I use this lens private and professional. I is my only non-Canon lens (I did use to own Sigma's). I own a Canon 17-40L, Canon 24-105L, Canon 50mm 1.4, Canon 20mm 2.8, Canon 135mm 2.8, so I have a lot to compare it with. The Tamron is cheaper and longer than the Canon 70-200L f4.0. And it has IS.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Tamron 70-300 mm

  • Excerpt: This lens has my vote. As long as you have good lighting the results are fantastic. Light in weight, fast to focus, and costs a lot less than its big brother 70-200.

Great lens for the price

15 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought the lens primarily for wildlife photography. The lens gets five stars on almost everything the counts, picture quality, speed to focus, weight and vibration control (VC). The only reason I dropped a star is because it really struggles to autofocus with my Kenko 2x extender.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Great banf for the buck tele lens

  • Excerpt: AF is quick and quiet. The lens has great optically quality and is sharp all the way to 200mm and a bit softer up to 300mm, but still usable. VC works great at stabilizing stationary subjects. Comes with lens hood. Metal lens mount. VC jerks when trying to follow moving subjects.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
