From the Manufacturer
Designed for optimum handling ease and portability (it weighs only 458g <16.2oz.> ), it’s ideal for handheld shooting with full-frame and APS-C format SLRs. Its unsurpassed close-focusing ability (down to 0.95m (3.1 feet ) or 1:2 in macro mode) makes it perfect for nature and portrait photography.
AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens Features
Low Dispersion (LD) Glass for Greater Lens Sharpness
Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens help reduce chromatic aberration; the tendency of light of different colors to come to different points of focus at the image plane. Chromatic aberration reduces the sharpness of an image, but glass with an extremely low dispersion index, has less of a tendency to separate (defract) a ray of light into a rainbow of colors. This characteristic allows the lens designer to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration at the center of the field (on axis), a particular problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto end of the zoom range), and for lateral chromatic aberration (towards the edges of the field) that often occurs at short focal lengths (the wide-angle end of the zoom range.)"
Top customer reviews
Pros: Price, versatility
Cons: some ease of use concerns, some tradeoffs due to price
However I want to point out that the lens seems a bit too long when fully extended, and it does not have vibration reduction so taking shots at 300mm could be a little tricky.
Overall I am very satisfied with the quality, and performance of this lens. I definitely recommend this for the overall value.
I've gotten some amazing pictures of Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles, Rough Legged Hawks, Red Tails, etc. I've taken photos of birds from as close as 10yards, to as far away as 60 yards. I've photographed birds on the water, on the fenceline, on power poles, and in trees. This lens never fails to take some amazing photos!
HOWEVER, I have noticed that while this lens does an amazing job at photographing stationary birds, once they take flight it becomes much more difficult to get clear photos. A moving bird requires a lens that can focus on them faster than they can move away, changing the depth of field. This is not a lens capable of that in my opinion. You would have to spend much more money to get a lens that will take crystal clear photos of a golden eagle soaring away from you in the sky.
In my opinion though, for the price, it cant be beat and I have still gotten incredible photos that I never dreamed I would be able to capture. I have submitted some of the photos I took of the local bald eagles to the photo gallery for this lens, so feel free to check them out to get a better idea of what this lens can do.
This lens worked so well I've purchased some other Tamron products and have been quite satisfied.
In summary: this lens makes me seem like a much better photographer than I actually am. I'd recommend it.
