Tamron 70-300MM F/4-5.6 LD Macro AF

70300mm
Review Date: Nov 8, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $150.00 | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Cheap, Light, Big(gets some funny looks)
Cons:
AF is Slow, Focusing Ring, Soft

Very cheap, light lens. AF is slow, but it seems pretty accurate to me. Very soft @ 300mm. Color is not reproduced very well. CA city, Lots of CA! Did I mention AF is slow?

If you need a cheap lens, fast this is your lens. Do a little sharpening in PS and you're good.

Pros: Light, Price, Image Quality
Cons:
ISO 1600 is sometimes noisy, very plastic feeling, grip feels loose

My first DSLR. Feels very plastic-like to me, doesnt have the metal chassy underneath it like the pro bodies. The first thing I remember thinking after I took it out of the box was " WOW I paid 600 bucks for this!?" Other than the plastic build quality, the image quality is amazing.

Overall this camera is a joy to own. I would recomend it to anyone looking for a cheap DSLR with great image quality.
