Great Lens For Wildlife

By

This lens is sharp with great bokah. I prefer to use it on manual focus.

Great for the price

By

I took this lens out to the Renaissance Festival and it performed quite well. The wide 2.8 aperture makes for some great shots in low light while keeping the image sharp. The only con would be the slower auto-focus, however for anything but sports it is fantastic. Highly recommend.

Fantastic Lens

By

I've had this lens for a few weeks now and have taken close to 1K shots with it in all sorts of settings. It has its downsides; its really fricking heavy, it does occasionally run through its whole focus range when it loses its target, the auto focus isn't super fast and it's kind of noisy. Those things being said, this is a fantastic lens that is worth every penny of its price. I can't recommend it highly enough.

great addition to my camera family

By

I just got this lens and plan to use it for inside shooting- The f 2.8 at al lens extensions is terrific. Easy to switch back and forth from manual to auto. Not too heavy for what it is

Bought used, flawless

By

This lens was clearly treated well by its previous owner. It's cleaner than I expected from the rating. Adorama exceeded my expectations with this used lens. The lens itself is sharp and responsive, even though a bit heavy.

Excellent lens.

By

I bought this lens to take pictures of my daughter's cheer competition. Competition season doesn't start until November, so I haven't had the chance to use it for that. It has taken beautiful pictures around the house and at the park. It is bigger and heavier than I expected, but this is my first zoom lens.

Great Lens

By

This was an absolute great buy. The lens does exactly what it's suppose and is even very easy on manual focus. Getting some great action shots of the kids. Plus Adorama sent the lens within two days of ordering it.

grest value

By

I use this for wildlife and some macro and will be using it for sports mainly football and softball. its a fantastic value for the money. only problem I have is its weight but it is manageable if you hold it properly. it zooms internally so this is a huge plus for me also and makes it a lot easier to use.

Great lens for the $

By

I use this lens primarily for shooting sports, mainly basketball, wrestling, and soccer. I wasn't in a position to spend $500+ on the other similar lenses and after shooting a few events I am happy I didn't.

I love this lens

By

I was expecting to use this lens rarely (I figured it has way too much reach for landscape stuff), but--to my surprise--I used this lens more than any other in Yellowstone. I loved shoot at f/2.8 for the bokeh, and shooting at f/5.6 to f/8 for fantastic sharpness.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  How much auto focus improvement over 55-300?
CHRIS C  This lens is a large improvement over the 55-300 in most areas, but AF will not be that big of an improvement. This lens does not have an AF motor so it is driven by the screw drive AF. So it will be a little loud, and keep in mind this thing is enormous. If your main concern is AF speed you should focus on the sigma 70-200, the sigma is the fastest option in this range for Pentax . For what it is worth I sold my Tamron and bought the DA* 50-135. The size and loudness were my reason for switching.
