Great for Pentaxians

  • Excerpt: Bottom Line Up Front: If you need a high quality 70-200mm lens at an affordable price for your pentax body that has in body stabilization, this is fabulous. My absolute best lens. Now on to my general review.I first ordered this lens from another retailer but it had a back focus issue (even after making a -10 adjustment in my K3 body). The current one works great.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Price, Price To Quality Ratio, Strong Construction
  • Cons: 2 Step Manual Focus, Heavy, Slow Focus

have to get used to it

Conewbie, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use this for a multitude of shots and have been very happy with the image quality so far. I am not a pro, I use it as a dad, friend and just to play with a Canon T1i DSLR. I am finding that fine line between shutter speed and lens length to be challenging as I am way to used to using VR lenses. I need to get used to setting the shutter speed instead of relying on aperture alone as I have done with my slower lenses (with VR).
  • Pros: Clarity, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Heavy

Really Great lens

Birdi, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use this lens mostly for wedding photography. It's got a great sturdy feel. Pictures are crisp and it is fast. Only issue I have is that it is quite heavy. But, that really isn't an issue if you use a tripod.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

GREAT for the $$$, fits above the Sigma, right below the more expensive Canon

Movielighter, Amazon

  • Summary: I tested the sigma VC and non VC version of this lens, Canon's versions and the Tamron before making my purchase. *The Sigma took way too long to auto focus (both versions), had a good picture, a little over priced. *The Canons were sharp and solid, but were well out of my range. *Tamron decent focus speed, sharp and well built for the money. Paid $550 used and well kept, have really enjoyed the performance with sports, portraits and events.

For the casual/hobbyist photographer, look no more. Great value and performance

  • Summary: I needed a low light zoom lens to take pictures of my daughters during their dance recitals and other activities. Given that i am not going to be using this lens on a regular basis, i did not want to sped a ton of money. I gave Tamron a change after reading many positive reviews. It doesnt disappoint! The lens is a bit on the heavy side, but expected for any 2.8 lens. The picture quality is above average, I wish it was a bit sharper, but just nitpicking really.

Great Lens...Don't be scard to buy!

Kerrie, Amazon

  • Summary: I think I looked at this lens along with the Nikkor for my Nikon D5100 for about two months before finally making the purchase. I was hesitant due to seeing in reviews that this lens was sometimes slower to focus, taking up to 5 seconds at times. And, I wanted to make sure I was going to be getting sharp images.

Favorite Lens and never comes off my camera

Will Thorpe "Will", Amazon
13 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this lens USED last year and it still working fantastic. Is it as sharp as a canon on nikon? No. Is so less sharp it's worth another $2? No. Its barely less sharp and works great. As a wedding photographer this is my go to lens for just about everything and I use it for portraits and as a macro. If you can't afford a Nikon or Canon version of this lens, save yourself the financial heartache and but this one.
