This lens was EISA best consumer lens 2008-9, a redesign of the long standing full frame non stabilised lens. Sigma and Tamron have done a great job with their wide range superzooom lenses. This is one of the best. I hve tried it on a Canon 40D and a 5D Mark 2 and it gives exceedingly good images on both. It is a little slow and soft at the 300mm end, but still very good. A light weight of 500G is excellent for a large IS zooom lens, and it is pleasantly small when not extended. It will take acceptable macros, I recommend looking at the groups for this lens on Flickr. Well, I was impressed!

For a walk around lens with such versatility it is a reasonable price and excellent quality. Suitable for the enthusiastic amateur for most purposes, but it is a jack of all trades, so shorter zooms or primes will be better, but at what price? The image stabilisation works very well, up to 4 stops improvement.

Tamron AF 28-300mm F3.5-6.3 XR Di VC Vibration Compensation LD-IF Macro for Canon AF

A very good lens (some barrel distortion, but acceptable) with a superb zoom range, and capable of macro photography all without having to change lenses.
The image stabilisation is good, although it has its limitations - exposures >1sec may or may not be acceptably sharp when hand-held - but photos from the deck of a ship at sea were all very good.

....this lens is a CRACKER!! - I use Canon L series lenses (16-35mm Mk2, 27-70mm f2.8 and 70-300 DO IS) which all have incredible quality with stunning optical performance, and the quality of this lens is really not too far behind and definitely worth the price difference (approx £450 against £1000+). Terrific for compactness and travelling, with such a zoom coverage. Absolutely no problem with focus tracking, providing you know what you are doing with auto focus points and set your CAMERA up correctly!!! - HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!!
