  • Superb Telephoto Lens On A Budget

  • August 30, 2012
  • By: Mark

I purchased this lens for my Canon Rebel T3i about a year ago, and have thoroughly enjoyed using it since. It's a terrific piece of glass for the price. The 70-300mm zoom range (equivalent to 112-480mm on the Canon) is great for a wide variety of outdoor use, including nature and portrait photography. The Tamron's image quality is better than I expected; it's capable of producing sharp images with nice colours and strong contrast, although it starts to get soft around 250mm and can really suffer from CA in certain situations. I've found the macro feature of this lens, which lets you shoot at 1:2 magnification from 180mm-300mm, to be particularly useful when photographing any flowers, plants or other small subjects, as it can give your shots a more professional look than what you'd get from a non-macro lens. The lens is made of plastic, but it feels solid in your hands and balances well with a camera the size of the T3i. Autofocus is fairly quick and accurate with well-lit subjects, but I would strongly suggest switching to manual focus in low light to guarantee sharp images. The only thing missing is image stabilization, but that may be asking a little too much for only $200. Overall, the Tamron 70-300mm is very comparable to Canon's 75-300mm, but costs almost $100 less and includes a lens hood. I would absolutely recommend this lens to anybody looking to buy their first telephoto zoom - you won't be disappointed.
