GRAY MARKET LENS

Gretchen, Amazon
22 August 2014
  • Summary: GRAY MARKET LENS First lens I ordered just didn't have the sharpness I thought any lens should provide. I had done a LOT of research prior to purchasing the lens, knowing it was on the cheaper end of most lenses, and had heard that sometimes you can get a 'dud'.

Grey market item - no US warranty

Mark Hornick, Amazon

  • Summary: Some time back I had ordered the Tamron SP AF28-75 F/2.8 Di from Amazon, which was sold directly from Amazon - it came with Tamron's 6-year USA warranty. I recently ordered this lens, which was fulfilled (but not sold) by Amazon.

Good price but don't buy!

Ron L, Amazon
2 July 2013
  • Summary: Most of my indoor pictures was out of focus and it was loud! Most of the time it hunt the image back and forth and created loud noise. It was so embarrassing to take pictures in low light condition.This lens only good for outdoor. I finally bought a Canon 17-40mm L lens and it is awesome!

Don't bother

Kevin H., Amazon
5 June 2013
  • Summary: Bought this lens new, I used it a couple times on assignment (I am a photojournalist) and after just a few times it would not focus, manually or auto. Sent it into Tamron (had the receipt and still under warranty) who wanted $400 to repair, would not honor the warranty.

Spotty QC

Doc Sarvis, Adorama
26 March 2012
  • Excerpt: My wife bought one of these for her Canon EOS 60D and it is an excellent lens. So excellent that I bought one for my EOS 60D. It consistently focused six inches behind my chosen focus point, and even at its best focus was not sharp.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Chromatic abberation
