I really really wanted this lens to work for me...

  • Summary: I really really wanted this lens to work for me because its affordable but unfortunately it didn't. Don't get me wrong, I love the constant 2.8 but it can only focus in bright sunlight. Indoors, in relatively 'normal' lighting, it just can't focus.

Couldn't justify it

  • Excerpt: I got this lens and found that it tends to be very soft at either end. I was consistently getting slightly out of focus photos. Occassionally I'd get some fabulous ones, but it just wasn't worth the [$] price tag. I think had it been closer to $300 I could justify it.
  • Pros: Durable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

  • Excerpt: I got the lens yesterday 6/30/2010. I took about 100 pictures under low light condition for testing. I could not get any sharp image at 75mm, 2.8 f. Totally disappointed. I understand that I might get a bad copy of this lens.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light

It's okay at best

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens a few months ago because I have read many reviews saying how sharp it is and how good the quality is...I am not impressed. I have used this lens from Landscapes to Weddings. Landscapes it does alright at f8-ish. Indoor and lower-light was having a tough time with sharpness.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: AF hunting, Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

Major AF problems with D300

  • Excerpt: The lens is sharp, and the f2.8 very useful. This lens would have gotten 5 stars, but unfortunately, the autofocus was a major problem right out of the box. The AF is intermittent. The autofocus will work normally, then, without warnining, it will simply stop autofocusing.
  • Pros: Sharp lens
  • Cons: Disfunctional autofocus

  • Excerpt: Покупать можно только после тщательной экспертизы, т.к. некоторые партии тамронов идут практически полностью бракованными. И, кстати, официальный сервис "Сивма" фронт-бэк фокусы неисправностью не считает.
  • Pros: Резкость, цена
  • Cons: Качество - вероятность купить стекло с мыльными углами, фронт или бэк фокусом составляет, наверное, процентов 50%
