Product Description

This telephoto zoom from Tamron, designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras, is ideal for anyone who wants to capture truly dynamic telephoto images. It goes far beyond the capabilities of the standard zoom that comes with a digital SLR camera. Ideal for photos of family fun, sport events, scenery, and portraiture, the lens naturally creates a out-of-focus background that emphasizes the main subject of your photo.

I took the Tamron AF 55-200mm out for a test drive along with my (new to me) Cannon digital rebel (300D). I went for a few hours into the wine country of Northern California. The Tamron is a perfect companion if you already have the standard Canon EF-S 18-55 mm lens. The Tamron is 55 to 200mm, so it takes over where the cannon leaves off.

Also, you get better lens performance compared to a lens that "tries to do it all" by going from super wide to long telephoto. Outdoors the camera was able to focus the Tamron quickly and reliably. I am very pleased with the lens.

I'm also pleased because this lens is designed specifically for digital cameras. (Digital cameras are different from film cameras in several respects). For example, a digital camera uses what amounts to a big chip to gather light, the surface of the chip is far more reflective than film. This means bright light can hit the chip and some of it bounce back into the lens. If the rear-end of the lense does not have good coatings, you can get re-reflections *back* to the chip. The light rays hitting the chip also need to be parallel NOT in a "cone". These are the types of design elements Tamron has paid attention to when designing this lens.

HOWEVER, you cannot use this lens with a film camera, or you will get dark fading (vignetting) around the edges of the photo.

Also, this lens is designed specifically for cameras with a CMOS or CCD chip no larger than 15.5 to 23.2mm (perfect for the Canon 300D) To see how big your chip is, refer to the specifications in your owners manual.

I originally bought this lens in order to have a zoom along with my 18-55mm kit lens for my Rebel Xti. Overall the build quality of this lens is very nice. It comes with a lens hood which is great because Canon usually charges you around $30 extra dollars for a lens hood. The only bad thing about this lens is the autofocus speed. I have often tried to use this lens for sports photography and have really been disappointed. It often takes a while for the lens to focus on hat you want it to. In low light the autofocus is completely unusable. Sometimes at the last second the camera will focus on something else and all I get are some blurry action shots with the background in focus and the event completely blurry. Overall I would recommend this lens for a person that wants to increase their lens capabilities to a mid-range zoom and whose budget is somewhat lower. If you're really looking for a lens more suited for sports photography you're not going to find anything at such a low price. But the price you pay an the quality you get is impressive. This was my first experience with Tamron and I will continue to buy their products in the future.

I am just a debutant photo amateur but I was looking for a not pricy telephoto zoom mainly for portraits and bumped into this option. Basically all critiques are good, nice image quality, good color rendering the only downside is the slow and noisy AF. It is a real good deal for a beginner on a budget.

I purchased this lens a year or two ago for my Rebel XTI because I wanted something that would fill in that small gap between my 18-55 and 70-300, I sometimes wanted something but neither lens would do. This fits the bill pretty well. I originally got this for those times when I was watching my kids play soccer and they were too close to me to use the 70-300. It does just okay for this. The auto focus can be a bit slower than my others so you have to allow for that. It's also a little bit more noisy, but eh. Doesn't matter.

What I use this lens for the most, however, is indoor shots. I am no where near a pro photographer. I like to play and my subjects are usually my children (who run away if they seem with a camera). So, I tend to sit back and use zoom a lot to get what I want. This lens spectrum covers well in an indoor setting and the quality of the detail is amazing for the price I paid. I'd recommend for folks to pick this one up - and give the Tamron brand a chance. I was worried at first because I have a CANON camera that I'd only use CANON lenses, but this is a fabulous lens for what we use it for.

I own a Canon Digital Rebel XT 8MP, and I've had it for 3 1/2 years. I thought it's time to get a 2nd lens, since I have a 300mm lens for my 35mm Rebel, but not for my Digital Rebel.

I figured I'd give this one a chance, due to the price and features. I think this slightly smaller lens is a better choice, for me, because of the smaller size. And, unlike a 35mm camera, it's a lot easier to crop digital pictures.

I am pleased with the lens. I believe the picture quality is exactly what I expected or better. I do think it's a little slow when it's far out of focus, but it's quick enough when it's just a little out of focus. I don't plan on using the lens everyday, but for the money and features, it's worth it.
