Review Date: Sep 13, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $45.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very good results, considering the price paid for it. I'd buy another one.
Cons:
None. You get more than you paid for.


This is the third edition in the Tamron 28-200 line. I've used the first two (not bad), but prefer this one. Small, compact and pretty sharp. Decent build quality too. A fantastic value for th eprice.

Review Date: Jun 27, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, well built.
Cons:
None that I can think of.


I hesitated for some time, before pulling the trigger on this purchase. My mistake. I promptly burned two rolls of fine grained film with it, and the results are VERY good. Upon glassing the negs, (10x loupe on light table) I found the negs to be very sharp and defined. Great color & contrast. I used it on the F100 body, and had no issues with focusing. Quite fast. It's not too heavy or awkward. It very well, will probably become my "go to" auto-focus lens.

Review Date: Sep 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $190.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: A great little flash.
Cons:
Would have liked to se the built in flash-bounce panel, like the SB-800 has.


A very nice flash. It only has 2/3 a stop less power than the higher priced SB-800. The user controls are very easy to understand and navigate through. Love the metal mounting shoe. It recycles immeditaely with lithium batt's. Very well designed and built. Nikon, is far ahead of everyone else, in flash technology I'll probably get a second one. I highly recommend it.
