Cons | Rating: ★★★★★
“Overall, despite the negative qualities, this is a wonderful lens and a joy to use. My biggest surprise with this lens though was that is is great for photographing dragonflies and butterflies (what i use it for, but not what i bought it for).
For beginning DSLR users, it is well worth the price, and I consider it an amazing bargain. It is built well, it works well, and it delivers good pictures (though you will probably need a tripod, and you will probably be focusing this lens manually a lot) Even if your’e not sure if you need a telephoto lens, get this one anyway, because you will never find a deal like this one! “

Nice lens | Rating: ★★★★★
“So far, I am very happy with this lens. My budget wouldn’t allow me to purchase the pricier lenses. After reading lots of positive reviews, I settled on the tamron. I have not regreted the purchase. The lens is a bit heavy and I always use a tripod with it otherwise I experience camera shake. The quality of photos that I get with this lens have been excellent for my purposes. I am not a professional, but this lens seems like a great deal for the price. I would recommend it to those who would like a zoom lens in the 75-300 range but can’t afford a lens that cost more than your camera. “ – by Deborah McCandless

Just What I Needed… | Rating: ★★★★☆
“My once part-time hobby has turned into a part-time business. The amount of people who need Headshots in Los Angeles out-weighs the number of Photographers..supply and demand. The Tamron lens is just what I needed to meed the demand.” – by Lawrence P. Davidson “larryfrmny”

Amazing lens for the price | Rating: ★★★★★
“The build quality is better than I expected for this lens. Although it is plastic (frankly I don’t understand why people complain about a plastic lens, unless you abuse your lenses I think a plastic exterior is just fine, unless of course you want to spend hundreds for more not having plastic) the build quality is very good. The auto focus was also very quick and although some users note the noisy auto focus as a con, I don’t think it is noisy at all. Overall this lens far exceeds my expectations in every category. If you’re an amateur or novice to somewhat serious photographer I don’t think you need a telephoto lens that costs more than this one. I am really glad I bought this lens. “ – by J. Peterson “JP”

“I purchased this lens 3 weeks ago and I am quite happy with it. A friend let me borrow her Cannon 70-300 lens to try, starting reading the reviews on this lens and decided what the heck, for the price I am going to give it a try, thought both lens took about the same pictures, and I am very happy that i purchased this lens, I have already received compliments about the quality. So for the price you can’t beat this lens and the warranty that comes with it, you would be silly not to get it. “ – by L. Beister “Lbeister”

Good len for Canon DSLR | Rating: ★★★★★
“Well designed, works perfectly with my Canon Rebel XS, good range, big range for focussing the target. the complain maybe that i have is the autofocus is little slow, but for this lens, i better if you use in manually mode to achive the the picture as well you desired. if you want a lens not spensive like other, this lens is a good choice. i recomended this item. “ – by E. Albino

Beautiful, Affordable Camera Lens | Rating: ★★★★★
“Tamron has constructed a wonderful telephoto camera lens for Canon Cameras…! This lens helps in taking beautiful snapshots at a closer proximity than a regular standard zoom lens…! Really a nice zoom lens at an affordable price! Definitely recommend it for those wanting to capture some incredible wildlife photos…” – by Lauren Bullers “Lauren”

Serves the purpose | Rating: ★★★★☆
“This lens serves a no nonsense zoom lens for a novice photographer. Although the focusing is slow it takes great outdoor pictures. My purpose is mainly outdoor photography for which this lens is great. The macro mode takes a while getting used to but I’d rather use this as a zoom lens only. Overall great value and a super buy for a novice photographer on a budget. “ – by K. Shah
