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
