    Fantastic lens

    This is a great lens ---- especially for the price. I bought it for a Nikon camera and have been very happy with the results I've gotten. The two shots I've attached are handheld with VC switched on. The lens seems to be sharpest at around f/8. The lens is very well made and it's not too big or heavy. The zoom and focus rings move smoothly. The only negative I have is with the hood; it seems a little fragile, but that's not a big deal. I own another Tamron lens (70-200mm f/2.8 G2) that I use with my Nikon D850 and it's great too.

    This lens is the last lens most people will ever need. Right out of The boxi was as impressed by its sturdy construction and stylish appearance. I’ve already used it on landscapes, wildlife, sports and everyday pictures of my dog . I was very happy with how fast and quiet the auto focus is. It does very well at all focal lengths. This lens will change your life. It’s the best travel lens ever and outstanding general purpose lens. Every camera deserves a lens this good.

    for the money - heck yes. I use it with my Nikon d500 and while it is not an FX full frame lens, what it does do is enough. it'll get you by - especially for the price. i was looking to spend $2300 and this will keep me from doing that until I absolutely have to. so yeah. hold it very steady - it may have auto focus but it needs a good grip to turn out anything decent. the zoom function has helped me out a lot so far!

    Better than Nikon 18-300

    For about the same price as the Nikon 18-300mm this lens is the better buy since it can go 100mm more. But it's actually about 600mm on a crop sensor Nikon which is a plus. I did notice lens distortion at 18mm but that was expected with these type of lens. Overall I'm impressed and very pleased with this.

    This lens is great for both wide angle shots and zooming in on distant shots. It is a great all purpose lens . Only have had it for a short time, but so far I am very happy with the lens. In the past I had to carry multiple lenses and switch them out in the field or carry multiple cameras with the different lenses.

    So far, so good

    I've taken a number of test shots with my Nikon D7200 and the results so far are very good except - as expected - out toward 400mm. Photos are sharp form edge to edge from 18mm to over 300mm. And the build seems to be decent. We'll see how it holds up.

    Travel Lens

    This is a great add to my equipment for my camera. 18mm to 400mm, you can use this for almost anything. one of the issues is, that is not that fast at focusing at night, but other than that, I think this is all I hve found wrong with it.

    I purchased this lens for travel but more important for shooting my grandkids at soccer. It takes a very nice picture. My only complaint but not a deal breaker is that the focus ring is stiff compared to a Nikon lens.

    Love using just one lens to take pictures up close or zoom a little further. The lens is heavier than my 55mm-200mm, and it will take time to learn as I am an amateur.

    Love my lense, until it gets overheated at the end of a picture day. Doesn't focus or do anything.
