The lens itself feels pretty good build quality and for the money, the optics are good too. As other reviewers have rightly pointed out, it is a little bit soft at the longer focal lengths (200-300mm), with some noticeable cyan fringe chromatic abberations. Lets face it, for £130 (or there about) you are not going to get top quality optics. If you are on a budget, as I was, you will not be disappointed with this lens. Just dont expect to be able to take razor sharp images at longer focal lengths with the clarity of a high quality apochromatic "pro" lens. In relatively low light conditions, you will find that the lens "hunts" so you have to switch to manual focus occasionally (esp if you stop down to f/8-f/11 to sharpen up at longer focal lengths). It maybe a touch noisy during auto-focusing but not too intrusive. The lens barrel rotates during focus so using circular-polarising filters can be a little troublesome but this can be overcome by focusing then switching to MF and adjusting your filter.

Pro's
Good focal length for mid-range nature photography.
Reasonably fast (f/5.6 at 200-300) for a cheap lens
Sharp under 200mm
Light weight
Good build quality

Con's
slightly soft over 200mm (can be rectified by stopping down to around f/8-f/11) or in CS3 post-production
Some noticable cyan chromatic abberation

This lens is now my primary lens when I do drifting/sports events for a number of reasons, I'll list these reasons towards the end of this review.

The lens for the price is outstanding (£89), the build on it is superb, the lens hood is sturdy enough to take a good few knocks when out on trails or at events.

It will work in the rain, I've had it out in numerous weather conditions and it still works.

When it has been swapped for another lens, it really doesn't take that much room in the bag (I use the Lowepro Vertex 300 AW Photo/ 17" Notebook Backpack for Digital SLR & 6-8 lenses - Black for hiking/sports and the AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR Cameras and Accessories Black backpack for biking) and I can fit it in the 18-55mm space no bother (I reverse the lens hood on it so it takes up less space and to give it some protection from bumps)

The lens hood clips in to place very securely so you know that it won't slide off unlike my Nikon 55-200MM F4 - 5.6G AF-S DX Lens - Black which falls off from time to time.

The macro mode is activated when the lens is in the range of 180mm and 300mm, there is a slider on the lens itself for this, this too is very snug and won't go on by accident.

Macro mode as a distance of 3.1ft for its closest focusing, but I reckon a few extension tubes would increase that.

The grips feel really well made and are easy to use while wearing gloves.

Let me know if this review was useful in your decision or if you have any questions about it.

This lens:
Does NOT win the title for the best image's sharpness.
Does NOT win the title for the best macro quality.
Does win the race for the best ALL in ONE value lens.

I am totally happy with this lens, its cheap and effective. Its not the best out there as i said- you should not expect a supreme lens with this price any way!-.
Its effective, nice photos, good macro feature, and good built quality.
I would recommended to any one who is a beginner -like me- and want to do some practice on different aspects of photography (macro and telephoto)before moving on to the serious part where you have to pay at least double the amount for only one of the previous features.
All in all:
Image quality: 3.75/5
Focusing: 3.5/5 (noisy and slow)
Macro feature: 3.75/5
Value: 5/5

A Pro? well, you should not be looking at this lens any way!

Even alongside lenses costing a lot more, this Tamron 70-300 performs well. OK it's the budget version without the anti-shake bells and whistles, but don't let that deter you. It's really excellent value for the money. I have a Nikon D300 + Nikkor 17-55 and 105 macro, which cost an arm and three legs - this cheap Tamron fills a much needed gap in my selection. I previously tried Tamron's 18-270 (but I might have been unlucky with the particular one which I tried) - at maximum range, the 70-300 out-performs the 18-270 version. Against a cheap Nikon 70-300, this lens exhibited less chromatic aberration. My Nixon lenses are both heavy brutes; this Tamron is refreshingly light to carry around and it also has a macro switch which does not do a bad job either. Unlike other telephotos, I have had no problems with lens creep or brewers droop and if needed, it is totally compatible with full format (FX) Nikon cameras.

Amazon's provided their usual excellent service as always, and even when the dispatch company lost my first lens, Amazon express shipped a replacement which arrived in time for my trip away - very well done Amazon!

I'm just getting started with my photography but I decided to buy this lens to add to the 18-55mm that the camera came with.

I can't fault the macro ability of this lens, the shots have come out crystal clear and I can get incredibly close to the subject. Using it as a telephoto lens works equally as well, and it comes with a crown to fight glare.

Although I don't have the Nikon equivalent of this lens I can't see what the extra £200 price tag would add as the photos have come out perfect so far, I would definitely recommend this.
