Meh

  • Excerpt: I did not have high expectations for this lens and it met them squarely. The lens was recommended by a colleague as an inexpensive alternative to the Canon 24-70 f/2.8. While it has some weight and feels durable, the focus ring is gritty and flimsy, and just feels cheap and awful to the touch.

  • Excerpt: I used this lens on several photo shoots before finding out that it wasn't in focus. I finally did some test shots and confirmed that it doesnt focus properly, or is just very soft. I managed to save enough of the photos to not have to reshoot the photos...luckily it wasn't a wedding.

  • Excerpt: Was so excited to get this lens but after using it for a day I was SOOOO dissapointed! Basically every picture was soft, dull and grainy. It didn't matter what apature setting I used, ISO, etc. Every picture looked like I used a camera phone. My kit lens took better pics then this lens.

Focus Issues

  • Excerpt: Be aware: this lens might have unresolved focusing problems. I bought two, the first one was replaced [...], the second was sent to Tamron for repair and still does not focus properly. Tamron is aware of the problem with this lens but would not admit it.

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens because I didn't want to spend the $1,100 for the Canon L lens. I used it for mainly portraits, HS Seniors, Weddings, etc. This lens is nowhere near sharp. If you are looking just to sell 8x10s and smaller, this lens will work great for you.

  • Excerpt: Mожет кому то будет полезно, особенно тем кто имеет кроп. У меня Canon EOS 500D, который до покупки этого объектива я использовал с Canon 18-135 и Sigma 50-200... В общем так: хотел я себе такую модель, новую[del mod]обычная коробка без надписей и инструкций, внутри линз не много пылинок, на линзах...
  • Pros: Удобные фокусные, почти нет геометрических искажений на кропе, передняя линза не вращается.
  • Cons: Смотрите в комментарии.

  • Excerpt: Выбирал из пяти в наличии на витрине. Этот фокусировался точно до 3 метров. Надеялся, что откорректирую в пядьваке на бесконечеость. Не хватило настроек в +20. Сдал в маг с радостью.
  • Pros: Дешевый, универсальный, легкий, удобный.
  • Cons: Не точно фокусируется. Мыло по краям на всех значениях диафрагмы. Требуется значительная коррекция при проявке в редакторах.

  • Excerpt: Объектив очень темный, картинка смотрится "дешево", глючит автофокус, мылит (рисунок на любой диафрагме особой резкостью не отличается, мягкий). Наивно начиталась диферамбов про этот "чудо-объектив" - купила почти за 17 тысяч с фильтром, сейчас лежит это "Г", пробовала продать знакомому фотографу,...
  • Cons: неадекватный автофокус, объектив темный
