By Mr. T. White TOP 500 REVIEWER
Style Name:For Canon
I happen to have this as well as its rival, the Canon 18-200. So please bear that in mind when assessing my review. Secondly, please ignore the (inevitable) forthcoming two thumbs down as I happen to have a complete i--ot, who trolls all of my reviews. In fact, he who always thumbs my reviews down has written more in the comments section of my reviews than anything else on the whole of Amazon, which should say something to you about how much worth you should give to his thumbs down to my review. And now, my review which I hope most of you will appreciate. :-)

Is this a great lens? No. Is this a reasonably good lens at a fantastic price? Yes.

Selling at almost a third of its Canon equivalent, its quality is respectably about 2/3 of the more expensive lens. So on pure price to performance ratio, the Tamron is a winning budget lens and deserves serious consideration mainly if price is an issue to you. Note too that second hand values are strong - whichever lens you choose. So it definitely is worthwhile trying the Tamron first to assess its quality for yourself. Otherwise if you can comfortably afford the Canon, buy that instead - as there are definite differences in overall output quality which, frankly, are noticeable at times.

This Tamron's build quality is first rate, and apart from the fact that it's a not particularly heavy lens, you'd be hard pressed to tell that this is a budget zoom at all. Yet when it comes to output on my Eos 40D, the said differences between the lenses become apparent. In particular, compared to its far more expensive rival, there are two areas where overall quality is compromised: Colour reproduction and sharpness. Colours are restrained at best and otherwise somewhat lifeless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purely amazing professional quality lens 18 Aug 2011
Style Name:For Nikon
This lens fascinated me. I read the reviews online and bought the product due to its low price. From the reviews that i had read, i expected the lens to be of lower quality build, lower functionality after a certain focal length, and overall just an ok lens. However, as soon as i lifted it out of the box my assumptions were proved wrong. The quality of build was amazing, and i soon decided that the build quality of this lens is actually better than the NIKKOR lens that I already had. The zoom range is very very high quality and doesn't become blurred after a certain length. The only thing i would say is a con is that it makes my camera from heavy, even with a battery grip, but you can only really tell when you try to stand it up and it falls forward.... but most of the time its either on a tripod, around my neck/back or in its bag. Overall I love this lens and this it is superb quality for its price... forget the price... this is an amazing lens and takes great photographs. Also, i love the included lens hood, and i especially love how fast the autofocus works, although it is a bit loud... but you can even control the focus in autofocus mode without breaking it, as the motor is strong but flexible in how tight it holds the focus. The button to stop the lens extending when not in use is a very clever one, and all this adds up to one conclusion to me. I won't tell you what it is but ill say it has replaced all my lenses and makes me very very happy. Have a guess what I think!

Style Name:For Nikon|Verified Purchase
I bought this lens on Amazon.co.uk in February 2012, excellent service, arrived a couple of days early in perfect condition. Lens quality considering the range (18 - 200) makes it the perfect lens to keep on the camera full time just changing to a longer lens for distant landscapes or objects. My Nikon is 6 years old now so not the fastest but was still able to get pictures of birds in flight at Exmoor Falconry with good definition on the feathers thanks to an excellent automatic focus. Strongly recommend for the point and shoot amateur (which I am). I looked at the Nikon lens in the range that this Tamron covers but the prices were 3 to 4 times the price of this lens, the difference in cost doesn't seem to be good value for hard earned money.

3.0 out of 5 stars TAM AF18-200 25 Feb 2007
Style Name:For Canon
This is a very good beginners lens, especially if you are into architecture, still life or portrait photography. It is very wide angled and does only distort the image at the sides slightly, where as some other wide angle lenses distort straight lines more. If you are using it about 70mm then you will notice a large drop in quality and to use it fully out is not really worth it. I have found that this lens peaks at about 35mm, but is still very good all the way from 18mm up to about 70mm and you shouldn't notice much difference in quality using it in this range. I still use this lens now and am very happy with it. I would however advise a faster focusing lens if you are only using it for fast moving objects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value 12 Mar 2011
By Simon
Style Name:For Canon
This lens has had some very mixed reviews, it's a toss up between this and the similar range Sigma as to which is best. Some reviews favour one, some the other.
I decided on this because I've had Tamron lenses before (many years ago) and always found them to be high quality.
I'm very glad I did buy this one!
The lens is not perfect, but for the price it's damn close.
Wide open it's fairly soft at most magnifications, but close it down a stop or two, and the story is very different. Everything seems to sharpen up a huge amount, it then becomes a very capable lens. The colour saturation is spot on, natural and accurate.
Barrel distortion at the wide end is more than acceptable; pincushion at longer settings is also well controlled. Contrast is strong and edge definition is surprisingly good for a lens of this type. Chromatic aberrations are evident, but only in high contrast detail where most lenses exhibit these. They are no worse than on the 18-55 Canon lens I also use.
The construction may be mainly plastic but it handles and feels like a quality, well made product. The zoom ring operates smoothly and evenly, as does the manual focus ring. The overall build feels solid, well designed and durable.
Having one lens that covers such a large range of focal lengths is remarkably convenient. for trips, holidays etc it's the ideal "walk round lens" Not having to fumble around changing lenses means your less likely to miss that shot when the moment presents itself.
All lenses of this type are a compromise between convenience and quality, but I would rather catch the shot and sacrifice some quality in absolute terms, than miss the shot altogether!
For the cost, just over 150, this thing is a steal.
