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 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.

Style Name: For Canon Verified Purchase
I initially bought this lens to use with a Canon 600 as a temporary replacement for an older expensive lens that had become unreliable. After a couple of months of use I have decided I will stick with it until I can justify spending many times as much on a real top end lens. Reviews of the the mid-price alternatives still mention the same lack of perfection I have seen with this lens, but they cost three times as much - the Tamron is the best in this budget class. The range is perfect for 'one lens' days - as you are ready for any situation and can capture reasonable results.

Good points are, it is compact, it focusses pretty well in most circumstances, it is fast and quiet to zoom and focus, it is lightweight and while not the most expensive construction I have seen, it seems well enough made. Like all Tamron lenses I have owned it comes with a hood included in the price.

The downside is exactly what you would expect on a lens of this range and price - at either end of range there are the expected issues with Chromatic Aberration and at some focal lengths the focus sharpness is not consistent all the way to the corner when images are blown-up.

My conclusion is that any large range zoom is a compromise and you know that before the purchase. If you need perfect professional results then this is not for you, but for the money I am very pleased with what this lens lets me do and the images captured.

Style Name: For Canon
For the price you pay this is a fantastic lens with a great focal range.

The only reason i can think that people would fault this lens would be if they are a professional photographer and i can only think that if you are a pro why are you buying a budget lens in the first place.

Im an amature and i own this lens , the canon kit lens and also the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM Lens.

A lot of the reviews say that this lens has problems focusing quickly in low light. This is true, but i have exactly the same problem with my canon lens in the same light. And the motor noise is no different.

Personally i've been using it for 2 months, its a firm build, great focal range, and the quality is good for what you pay. I use it mainly for travel photography so i don't have to keep swapping lenses for shots.
