Good idea, fair execution

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens with hope to avoid heavy spending on the Nikon 24-70mm lens. Got the lens as promised fast and safe. I wanted to try the lens and tried to photography my baby. Outcomes: colors are very nice with good contrast. The problem I had was with the focus and the zoom ring.
  • Pros: Contrast, Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Unpredictable Focus

  • Excerpt: I've had this lens since it was introduced. Have used it on Konica-Minolta 7D, Sony A700, and Sony A99V. It was excellent lens on both 7D and A700 but have noticed considerable back focus on A99 @ F2.8/75mm. It gets progressively sharper as F stop larger (4.0-8.0). At 8.0 lens is really sharp.

Very good image but noisy

  • Summary: Very good image but noisy. It doesn't have a ultrasound motor, so it is very noisy when it works. when I tried to record video, I could hear a focusing noise.

good optics, autofocus problems

Groovy, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: First off, it is very good optically even at 2.8 but you get corner softness, by f4 everything becomes really sharp, almost prime like. Unfortunately, my copy had some pretty intense back focus (I need to get at -10 on my k-5) at the 35 to 75 range and for the tele end I need to be at +3.
  • Pros: Good Optics, Lightweight
  • Cons: Back Focus Problem, Plastic feel

lightweight and good range

  • Excerpt: does not have an easy fit onto the nikon D600, used it at an indoor event and is provided good range for group shots and individual photos. On a large group shot indoors at 2.8 there was some distortion in the people on the edges. Sharp focus though even using f/2.8
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

Ok lens if you're willing to settle for mediocrity

  • Summary: I expected better image quality from this lens. To say that I am disappointed would be an understatement. I own other Tamron lenses that far exceed the optical qualities of this lens.
