A must have piece of glass for any budding amateur photographer,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tamron A005S SP AF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di USD Telephoto zoom lens for Sony/Minolta A-Mount (Camera)
I agree with most other reviews, it has quick crisp quite focusing and the picture quality is great...
However I have a few little niggles which has stopped me from awarding 5 stars.
1. The lens hood is so large it's hard the replace the lens cap.
2. The lens cap "pops" off too easily
3. The manual focus ring has no "stop" point, it just keeps spinning, which is annoying when trying to find infinity focus in the dark.
4. The price. Yes its very good value for money but why is it more expensive than the equivalent Nikon or Canon version?
All minor issue's granted but still I’m just offering my personal opinion.
Just one more thing, the lens is pretty heavy (which for me is a good thing) but if you’re intending to carry this around affixed to your camera you may want to think about a neck strap or monopod!
