Summary: Love this lens. It's been sitting on my d800 for quite sometime. My only gripe is that there is some vinetting that's going on unless it's just my filters. All in all it's a good all around lens to cover a decent range and the images come out sharp.
Excerpt: I use this lens primarily for portraits. It's easy to use, pretty fast and produces great results with certain settings. Unfortunately, I've found this lens only to be sharp from f/4 and higher. I really wish I would have invested more and gotten the lens with image stabilization or vibration control.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Fantastic Lens... if it works right... (and you have a warranty!)

Summary: I spent quite a bit of time researching what sort of lens would give me the very best value as a budget but sharp, high quality walk around lens for my new canon 70D, and this lens just kept coming up. Side to side comparisons between this lens and the far more expensive Canon EF 24-70 f2.8L lens were very, very comparable, and in fact in some cases the tamron even bested the L series super lens from canon.
Summary: Images are crisp and the f2.8 really provides excellent depth of field in the pictures. This lens is very well built and is much smaller and lighter compared to the Nikon 24-70 f2.8. I love the lens and the images !!! I have a Nikon D90 and feel that the auto-focus feature may have been better. But overall - im loving it !!
Excerpt: I purchased this to replace the lens that was included in a bundle for a Nikon. The image is sharper and I have more flexibility. The autofocus is a plus. I has a substantial feel and focusing is quicker.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens to photograph high school sports. It is fast enough and does a decent job. The pictures are not super sharp but for the price you aren't going to get super sharp. It is a relatively inexpensive glass and the pictures reflect that. If you want the super sharp photos you can spend 4 times as much for the L quality lens. For the price it is a decent lens.
Summary: Arrived yesterday. Did a quick test to make sure that it worked with my NIKON D3100. Mounts on camera just fine, and AF works too. I took a few indoor shots at night and immediately noticed the difference in low light results compared to my 18-55mm kit lens. Due to the zoom and the focus range, I have found that to be a great walk-around lens but due to unsatisfactory low light results wasn't entirely happy.
