R2D2 in HEAT!

Michael A. Lombardi "Hoop", Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: I must have received a bad copy as this thing sounded like one of the Transformers while trying desperately to auto focus on something. So loud it was embarrassing! It was also extremely cheap feeling and It was only sharp at F8. A real JUNKER!!!

Cheap Lens- be aware

Kate loves color, B&H Photo
19 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I am a lifestyle portrait photographer who shoots a D90. All my other lenses are Nikkor so I am use to quality lenses that produce tack-sharp images. This lens was recommended by a reliable source so I took the risk and bought an inferior brand lens since I am not excited to spend $ for the nikkor version. Big mistake. This lens is so inferior. It felt plastic-y and cheap mounting it on my D90, and when I zoomed in and out for the first time, I was sick to my stomach.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus, Weak Casing

SERIOUS QUALITY CONTROL ISSUES

G.M., Amazon
5 November 2011
  • Summary: *******PLEASE READ UPDATES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS REVIEW TO LEARN WHAT HAS HAPPENED WITH MY LENS AT TAMRON*********** I bought this lens after reading so many positive reviews from Amazon customers. However, I did note on a multitude of websites such as slrgear.com, dpreview, and photozone.de that these lenses have quality control issues. These websites all had to use multiple lenses from Tamron before receiving one that worked good enough to test.

NOT GOOD!!

Cura, B&H Photo
15 September 2008
  • Summary: I initially bought this zoom because of all the other feedback that I had found on this site, nevertheless I must say that this is the worst zoom I have ever used in terms of brightness and sharpness. I used it to shoot photos for a friend’s wedding and I was really angry afterwards because the sharpness in all the pictures was really bad, even when I shot at high speed, small ISO and working at f11 or f13.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: I just returned the lens. I did not like it at all. It is VERY slow and not sharp. More work in photoshop. I upgraded to the Nikon 2.8 and LOVE IT! From now on I will wait and save my money and only buy Nikon lenses for my Nikon. What a difference!

Save your money

C.T., B&H Photo

  • Summary: I bought this lens because I didn't want to spend the $1,100 for the Canon L lens. I used it for mainly portraits, HS Seniors, Weddings, etc. This lens is nowhere near sharp. If you are looking just to sell 8x10s and smaller, this lens will work great for you. However, if you plan on selling 11x14s, 16x20s, 20x24s, etc., don't plan on using this lens. I tried it on my Mark II n, 30D, 5D. All the images looked soft.
