Tamron 28-300MM F/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD VC AF

28-300vr
Review Date: Jul 24, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 7 

Pros: Not expensive, useful across a range of focal lengths, compact, sturdy.
Cons:
Low light performance

I picked up this lense when I purchased by Nikon D70 and have to say that I am happy with the over all results Ive achieved with the lense.

The range of the lense makes it quite a handy lense to have in the bag for times when you will be wanting reach and dont want to be changing lenses all the time.

The cost of the lense was pretty good. At a shade over 220 I think this is good value for money.

While its true that in low light conditions the lense does struggle Ive still managed to capture many good shots with it.

Once again, over all Im pleased with the lense but will shortly be upgrading to something with a little more reach (like a sigma 50-500).
