Im not sure if its the camera or the lens but auto focusing is kind of slow.

The level of sharpness and overall image quality from this lens has been just fantastic.
Kelli Shaver
I am sure you can get a better 75-300mm lens if you spend a lot more money of course.

With lenses, the rule of thumb is, more often than not, "you get what you pay for" - having said that, this lens is an exception. This is a great price for a lens in this focal range. While I'm sure there are better quality lenses out there (if you want to spend a lot more money), for an under $200 lens, this one's great! Construction is solid and the lens feels sturdy and not at all cheap. Auto focus is reasonably fast and manual focusing feels quite comfortable. The level of sharpness and overall image quality from this lens has been just fantastic. I have no complaints at all and am very happy with this lens. I'd reccommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive lens in this range.

many people have commented on the pros of this lens:
-reasonably fast AF
-good color balance
-sharp images
-great feel (sturdy, smooth focusing ring, nice look, very light)

But there are also several cons:
-When Chromatic Aberration shows up, there IS a lot of it
-zoom ring could be smoother
-AF is loud and annoying (grating and harsh; I can only stand to use the manual focus)

Overall, despite the negative qualities, this is a wonderful lens and a joy to use. My biggest surprise with this lens though was that is is great for photographing dragonflies and butterflies (what i use it for, but not what i bought it for).
For beginning DSLR users, it is well worth the price, and I consider it an amazing bargain. It is built well, it works well, and it delivers good pictures (though you will probably need a tripod, and you will probably be focusing this lens manually a lot)
Even if your'e not sure if you need a telephoto lens, get this one anyway, because you will never find a deal like this one!

I use this lense a lot for capturing wild life and the first time I used it I couldn't believe what I was seeing. The autofocus mode is quick for those split second opportunity shots. It also does well as a macro lense so it serves a dual purpose. Did I also mention that I am just an amateur photographer? This lense is really easy to use too!

I got this lens for my Canon XSI. I am sure you can get a better 75-300mm lens if you spend a lot more money of course. I was a little concerned about not having IS on this lens but I figured for $100 I could deal with this by taking multiple shots and hoping half weren't blurred and half were decent enough to select from and use. Well I was pleasantly surprised by the clarity of the images even at full 300mm. When the lens arrived today I took it outside and took a few photos of a flower in my front yard, just to test it out. It was windy so the flower was swaying back and forth and I wasn't making a concerted effort to hold the camera still in my hands, and the image came out very clear and much better than I expected. I then took a few pictures of my cat at the full 300mm inside my house while he was eating. Again I got really nice pictures, although I had to have the flash on inside (tried without the flash and came out blurry) I figure with this lens I am going to be using it mostly for outdoors, and if I do use it inside I will likely use a tripod if I can't use the flash. But for outdoor use based on what I took today I don't think I will need the tripod, so again I am pleasantly surprised.

The build quality is better than I expected for this lens. Although it is plastic (frankly I don't understand why people complain about a plastic lens, unless you abuse your lenses I think a plastic exterior is just fine, unless of course you want to spend hundreds for more not having plastic) the build quality is very good. The auto focus was also very quick and although some users note the noisy auto focus as a con, I don't think it is noisy at all. Overall this lens far exceeds my expectations in every category. If you're an amateur or novice to somewhat serious photographer I don't think you need a telephoto lens that costs more than this one. I am really glad I bought this lens.

We bought this lens for my wife's Canon Rebel XTi DSLR. The 35mm film equivalent of this 75-300mm lens is 112-450mm.

This lens is outstanding in every way. It has great build quality and a nice ergonomic feel. The focusing is pretty fast and it is able to autofocus accurately even at low light situations. It produces sharp pictures at all focal lengths with excellent detail and color balance. The lens hood is an added bonus.

At this low price for a lens I looked for flaws, but could not find any. I have to agree with the other reviewers that the axiom "you get what you pay for" does NOT apply to this lens.

The auto focus is faster then I expected based on other reviews. The lens is pretty darn slow. Don't expect any decent shutter speeds for anything but very bright conditions.

Easily worth the $120 I paid.

This is a very good - perhaps excellent lens. There were very few negative reviews for this lens when I was shopping for a better zoom, one in about the 55 to 300 range. The worst attributes listed were slow or no auto-focus. But even this was not talked about by most owners. I decided to buy and try this lens and found a better deal than Amazon offered. (Since then Amazon has reduced the price by over $50.00)

After receiving the lens, I have used it to take over 300 pictures. These pix ranged from landscape, to sporting, to church dinner, and portraits. First, let me say that I have not noticed any no or slow auto-focus problems. This is a light weight, well constructed lens that works exceptionally well with my Canon T1i.

If you read all of the reviews, you will discover that owners of this lens are more happy than unhappy with their purchase. I found this to be a better lens by listening to other owners of this, Sigma, Canon, etc. No other lens had this overall satisfaction rate from its owners.

Update 2 March 2013: I went on a trip in October, 2012 and for some reason the ZOOM feature of the lens stopped working. (Very disappointed in this, but it seems that somehow sand had gotten into the lens and caused the zoom function to break in some manner. I have spent a great deal of time at the coast and at sea.) When I got back from the trip, I sent the lens in for repair (Contact TAMRON, not the Seller about Warranty repair). After the repair, it now works as well as new. It was "disassembled, repaired, oiled and reassembled" according to the work order that was returned with the lens.

I would purchase any Tamron Lens before a compatible Cannon lens for the warranty and quality alone.
