Suprisingly Good!

I have been using this lens for about a year now and I was always wondering if I made the right chioce. Honestly, I got it for it's price, I wanted the WA and constant aperture and couldn't afford Canon 17-55 at the time. Results were very good from the start, but still I thought it would be better with, well, more expensive glass. So, recently I purchased two L lenses and I borrowed the 17-55 and did some extensive testing. Guess what? I am keeping the Tamron, it might be noisier than Canons...

So, recently I purchased two L lenses and I borrowed the 17-55 and did some extensive testing. Guess what? I am keeping the Tamron, it might be noisier than Canons and has no IS, but the image quality is right there with L glass, tad less resolution in shadows and slightly different color balance, but everything else is a tie... With some unmarked samples, I actually picked Tamron over Canon. Very nice lens and the price is just great.

Lens ok, Tamron support, not so much

This is the second Tamron lens I've purchase, the first I've had to send back for warranty. It stopped zooming. BEWARE! if you have any issues, even under warranty, tamron will NOT honor your warrenty. They will find reasons to charge you for repairs.

Lens Cap Won't Fit

By

I have no issues with the lens, but the lens cap does not fit on over the filter offered with this kit. I would not recommend the extra money for the kit. Just get the lens.

Fantastic Lens

By

After purchasing the Sigma 50mm 1.4 I was frustrated with my only wide angle option, a Nikon 18-55mm 3.5-5.6. I just was not getting the quality I'd seen others get on my same camera (D7000). I began looking at options, and ran across this lens. The price and reviews really had me excited, so I ordered a used copy. This lens is FANTASTIC. I really feel like I'll get many more years out of my camera thanks to the sharp image quality this lens affords me. I don't regret this purchase at all, and I especially recommend getting used gear from Adorama. The lens came exactly as they had rated it and I could not be happier.

Too much back focus

By

This is my first Tamron and also my first business with Adorama. The lens was delivered a day earlier than promised. I used it on my D7000, try to take the advantage of a $75 coupon offer. It's the version with built-in motor. Its focusing is quick enough, just like the speed of my beloved Nikon 18-200 and the noise is bearable. But it has too strong back focus from 17mm to about 35mm, rendering this lens almost unusable at wider apertures within this range. The back focus disappears at 50mm and gives pretty sharp image at center even with aperture wide open at 2.8. I fine tuned the autofocus in-camera up to -18 to give acceptable results at 17mm-2.8, but then at 50mm it's not focusing right and gives blurry pictures. After 500+ pictures, I also discovered that the left side one-sixth of the picture seems always more blurry then the right side. I've sent back the lens and Adorama promptly gave me the refund. The customer representative handling my call was great. I will do business with Adorama again.

Pretty good and solid lens

By

Overall, the lens is a solid and reliable lens. It feels very durable but is on the slightly heavier side. It comes with a lens hood which is helpful. The only real problem i had was with the auto-focus, sometimes its really hard to change the focus of the autofocus. It doesnt work very well in low-light situations either. The bokeh is not too bad, at f2.8 you still get that blur and fuzz.

What I like about this product is its accuracy and its boldness an excellent wide Single for groups and Portraits. At a reasonable cost. I can't say anything bad about this lens. I find that it works for me. You give it a shot, click click Gotcha..

I don't know what problems the negative poster had, but I have had no problems with Adorama. I will be ordering this lens from Adorama.

Great all rounder

By

Great all rounder for an APS-C camera. A really unbeatable value if you don't have the cash for a Canon/Nikon brand of this type of lens.

Nice lens

I've had the lens now for about a week. Enjoy using it. Makes noise while focusing, but at least does it rather quickly.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Does this lens have a fixed 2.8 aperture or is it variable?
ROBIN W  2.8 is this lens' widest aperture. As with most lenses, it lists the lowest aperture in the description because a good deal of the value is placed on how fast the lens is capable of shooting. But it can be used at many other apertures as well.
