Be Careful - Seller Another Deal fulfilled by Amazon is selling grey market Tamron lenses

  • Summary: I just purchased this lens and it arrived today. Thanks to someone else's review here, I immediately checked the serial number and discovered that Another Deal is selling grey market Tamron lenses. What this means is that there is zero warranty from Tamron and they will not service the lens even if you pay for it. I asked about the Tamron warranty and if the warranty was for only 6 months or something I may have kept it.

  • Excerpt: Photographing 9 years. Digital and medium format film. Worked with all kinds of lenses over the years. This is the single worst piece of photographic equipment that I own. Focusing this lens is an exercise in futility.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Difficult to Clean, I fell for it, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus, Too light for doorstop, Tough To Attach, Weak Casing

Lens failed within a few months

  • Excerpt: This was the first lens I ever purchased that wasn't a "kit lens". It was never dropped. Always handled with care. Stored properly away from extreme cold and heat. After having it for about two-three months it stopped working with my Nikon D90. Camera no longer recognizes it and no one can offer a reason why. Huge waste of money.

lens failed.

  • Excerpt: 10 days after I obtained the lens it started to no longer work with my nikon d90. I did take it into a camera shop and we reproduced the error, but they don't know why. The camera intermittently does not recognize the lens. Therefore you cannot take pictures or adjust the aperture or use autofocus. It did take cool pictures of some flowers we had around the house, but it's hard to be enthusiastic about something that stops working so quickly.

  • Excerpt: The lens mount was very tight, so if was a little difficult to mount. I became concerned about damaging my camera mount. The autofocus didn't work at all. It hunted a lot, and came close a few times, but the image in the viewfinder was never in focus. Initially when using manual focus, the viewfinder was bright. After the first shutter release, it became much darker, and therefore difficult to even focus manually.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Lens Creep, See comments, Slow Focus, Tough To Attach

  • Summary: Leider konnte ich mich nicht mit dem Objetiv "anfreunden". Für ein Objektiv waren die Motorgeräsche wie eine "Nähmaschine". Weiterhin störte mich auch der lange Auszug.
