Tamron is a good brand but this particular lens.. I'd give it 3 out of 5

  • Summary: A bit dark/slow. But oh well, if you really want a 500mm lens, then you have to live with these drawbacks. It's very huge (I mean really really huge) and quite heavy. Expect a big package to be dropped at your front door!

Cheap, lightweight, and decently sharp. Autofocus not ideal for wildlife

  • Summary: Low weight is great for hand-holding. But autofocus too slow for wildlife photography, and manual focus ring is inconveniently placed.
  • Pros: Decently sharp, long, cheap, lightweight.
  • Cons: Slow autofocus, no focus limiter. Minolta version front-focuses (though Canon is fine)

"Great" Zoom lens as expected

  • Summary: avoid the lens unless you think about 200-300mm range only, still the best performance at f/11. You can get Canon 200mm f/2.8L II USM for less money.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Easy To Clean, Lightweight
  • Cons: Below average image quali, Very soft till f11

TAMRON Objectif AF 200-500mm F/5-6,3 Di LD (IF)

  • Excerpt: Les premières photos prises semblent témoigner d'un bon piqué ..mais à vérifier . L'absence d'un stabilisateur est un manque pour ce genre de focales. L'AF semble suivre en mode image par image , n'ai pas eu l'occasion de voir les résultats en rafales dans la photo animalière par exemple ...
  • Pros: prix compétitif pour un 500mm
  • Cons: pas de stabilisateur
