Product Description

Product Description

Compactness, light weight and affordability are brought together in the Tamron 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di, giving emerging photographers an alternative to the highly lauded SP 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di VC USD. Picture takers eager to bring distant sports or wildlife subjects closer, as well as bringing tiny, close range subjects into clear focus will appreciate the standout macro function, available at focal lengths between 180 and 300mm. Capable of a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2 (one half life-size) close-up detail fills the viewfinder. Also, because the macro function is available at the lens' longer telephoto settings, an extended subject-to-lens working distance is maintained.

From the Manufacturer

Designed for optimum handling ease and portability (it weighs only 458g <16.2oz.> ), it’s ideal for handheld shooting with full-frame and APS-C format SLRs. Its unsurpassed close-focusing ability (down to 0.95m (3.1 feet ) or 1:2 in macro mode) makes it perfect for nature and portrait photography.

AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens Features

Low Dispersion (LD) Glass for Greater Lens Sharpness
Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens help reduce chromatic aberration; the tendency of light of different colors to come to different points of focus at the image plane. Chromatic aberration reduces the sharpness of an image, but glass with an extremely low dispersion index, has less of a tendency to separate (defract) a ray of light into a rainbow of colors. This characteristic allows the lens designer to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration at the center of the field (on axis), a particular problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto end of the zoom range), and for lateral chromatic aberration (towards the edges of the field) that often occurs at short focal lengths (the wide-angle end of the zoom range.)"

This lens is an all together wonderful deal. It works well with my Nikon D3000. The auto focus motor is a tiny bit louder than your usual motor, but, it doesnt really make much of a difference and if the slight noise does disturb you you can always manual focus. It works great in brightly lit conditions and is comparable to the Nikon 18-55mm lens in less bright conditions e.g. inside a building. The lack of vibration reduction means you may want to use a tripod, but, i find that it's fine with a faster shutterspeed. By far not the most amazing lens, but, it's the most amazing 300mm lens that you can get for the price.

A good lens for the price. Sharp focus isn't there as you would expect in a higher priced lens but satisfactory for most of my photography. A little too much power for an all around lens, but good for those longer shots. Worth the price, to have in your arsenal.

I bought this lens for my Nikon d60, and it works perfectly. This lens is exactly what I had hoped/expected for the price. I do need to use a tripod when using the zoom, but I knew that from the outset. Macro function has been fun to play wirh as well. Shipping, as usual, was very fast. I took a chance on this lens and was far from disappointed.
