Not Bad!

For the price you can't go wrong. I have taken some fantastic sharp photos with this lens. The nice thing is the cost and not having to worry about it if you drop it on a hike.

Low price zoom tele lens


from Tampa, FL  -  Casual Photographer

It's medium zoom tele that I just purchased. Very clean with chrispy optic. Low price but wonderful working on my Nikon D70s. I use it for both birding and macro's. I love this lens!

Tamron Zoom Lens


from Casper, WY  -  Pro Photographer

I use this lens all the time, whether shooting scenery, animals or portraits. Had one before. Broke lens after 20 foot drop to sidewalk. Small drops never bothered it. Immediately ordered the new one to replace the old. This is a definate must have.

Do not waste your money


from ATL, GA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

So i bought a 90mm tamron macro with true 1:1 for $400 and it has quickly become one of my favorite lens believe it or not. Use it just as much as my L lenses. So I figure what the hey I will try this smaller aperture zoom that supposedly is macro. I get closer shots with ANY of my non-macro lens and not to mention they are actually clear. I would not pay $50 for this lens now knowing how it performs. Cheap all around...feels like a toy, horrible AF, and images are just garbage. Spend an extra $250 and get the 90mm prime from tamron and save yourself the greif. I just dont understand all these good review on this thing! I guess I should have known you get what you pay for..in this case you get less than what you pay for.


Filter Doesn't fit the lens


from Boston  -  Photo Enthusiast

I looked at the kit and figured the filter fit the lens it is paired with. Not the case. And to swap the lens I am supposed to return the whole kit.


Pretty great


from Boston  -  Photo Enthusiast

Got it for Christmas and used it right away on a walk with the dogs, and right around the tree. The zoom is great, the focus takes a second or two and the Camera is sometimes flumoxed on whether the subject is near or far, but usually gets its nice and clear. This might seem like a silly CON, but, the lens is really long, especially with the hood on it. I am espically please with it because I needed more zoom and this has more than enough. At full zoom it is right at the limit of what you could shoot without a mono or tri-pod. It works well enough it low light, but anything with a somewhat extended exposure time at full zoom would require a pod. But that's not an detriment for me, a good excuse to pull out the tri

Make sure it works with your Nikon


from Sacramento, CA  -  Casual Photographer

Does not auto-focus with the Nikon D3100. Otherwise, a great lens for the price.

I would buy this product again


from Fort Worth TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I like and recommend this to a friend


Good for the money.


from Martindale, TX  -  Casual Photographer

Great for wildlife but zooming in and out is not very smooth and the autofocus is slow. For the money I spent I can't complain. No frills and it does what it's suppose to do. I haven't been out in cold weather with it and the lack of smooth zooming might be an issue when I do.


Very good Budget telephoto for beginners


from Raleigh, NC  -  Casual Photographer

Since I bought the product, I used less often because it is a big telephoto. I used it to shot on high floors towards the ocean. The lens deliver its functions well considering the cost. The AF is slow that you need to be patient.
