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

70300mm
Review Date: Jan 1, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Macro mode!, cheap, range.
Cons:
Soft, slow autofocus.

I have this lens for 2 years now it was my first lens i bought after the kit lens and i didn't have any regrets allthough thats only because it was so cheap.

Pro's;- Macro mode it has an 1:2 macro mode from 180-300mm wich works great and u get alot of space between u and the bug or insect. (its alot of fun)
- Cheap its so cheap that EVRYONE that buys his/hers first dslr should get this to its so much fun to get so close to to insects and have so much range.

Con:- Soft, lets say it as it it its soft mostly from 200-300mm and the image quality is not good allthough u get some good photos once in a while if u have luck (wich i had mostly at weddings).
- Autofocus is very slow for macro work its not that bad cuz u don't need it but for weddings its horrible thats why i'm saving for the sigma 70-200mm f2.8

Summary; Good and fun lens for beginners use it until u can get a 70-200mm f2.8, but a recommend lens for evryone who just starts and want to have alot of lens for a cheap prize.

Pros: Versatility, price, vr and af-s.
Cons:
Distortion at 18mm.

I got this in a kit with my D90, and though i thaught i was gonna hate it (cuz of the reviews) i absolutly love it, u can get very wide to farely close.
The vr works great and the af-s focus is handy to also front element doesn't move so u can use all filters u want.
Only thing i don't love is the distortion it is alot more prominent in this one than in the 18-55mm that i used before.

Pros: D-lighting, Iso performance, fast,d-movie, cls, ergonomics, ...
Cons:
Microphone input

This was my second DSLR after my D40, and i absolutly love it.
Its high iso performance, handling and imagequality is top notch.
Also it has video though it isn't perfect it is damn cool.
I can recommend (and did) the camera to evryone.
