Great lens for great price!!

  • Summary: I love the lens. I mainly shoot from my back porch looking out to a wooded ravine. In the winter months in WI I love to get close up photos of the birds at my feeders and in the yard. This does the trick for me. I do have it set on a tripod when on my camera as it is a bit heavy to carry around, but you cannot beat the price for a fine lens!

  • Summary: Bought it to photograph my daughter sky-diving. I was staying on the ground, had my fill of flying in the military, so I needed to reach up. Worked well but I photographed the wrong person. My fault not the lens'. It has a tripod adapter for a reason.

Good lens for the price

Moester1955, B&H Photo
30 November 2013
  • Excerpt: This lens is a great value for the money. From 200-400mm is the sweet spot on this lens. Does it have the fastest auto focus ? No Is it a $ lens? No.Does it work for me? Yes. I have gotten some nice photos under extreme conditions as I got this lens mainly for wildlife and it did not break the bank. I use it on my Sony a700 mostly.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Great telephoto lens

mivi2925, Ebay
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Great telephoto lens! The Canon 500mm lens is way out of my price range. This Tamrom SP 200-500mm/F/5.0-6.3 LD AF IF Di lens is awesome. Pictures are clean and crisp of birds from great distances. Autofocuses well with use of both the Tamron and Canon 2x teleconverters.

The answer to a 40 year prayer

Joe Cantrell, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: I have been a pro, or semi-pro, photojournalist and constant photographer over 50 years. One of my current gigs is volunteering as the official photographer for a major local blues festival, where some of the major acts, musicians my age, now insist that we stay at least 60 yards away and/or restrict close access to 3 songs. I bought this lens with that in mind and used it for this year's 4-day festival, for hundreds of images. It was pure delight.

Offers good alternative to Canon Lens

Retired Tom, Adorama
16 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I use the lens for wildlife images. The images are as crisp and clear (in my view) as my Canon lenses. Shooting with a 7D the 400mm Canon options weren't as useful beccause of restrictions on extenders. It is heavy to lug around at my advanced age. The new release of the Canon 400mm with extender built in was a bit steep for my purse.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy

Great lens

Steven Powell, Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: I really enjoy this lens. I use it for wildlife photography. Keep in mind that it is only auto focus if set up in the camera. Still, I don't mind the manual focus. I would recommend this lens to friends.
