    "Love it...Just wow!...After researching for a great 35mm Lens it boiled to either this or the Canon L 35mm which costs a thousand more, if weather sealing isn't a matter of life or death to you there is no reason to buy the Canon, the build quality, the sharpness of the image is right on par with the Canon....I was very hesitant to purchase a non canon lens but this is one of the best lenses I have especially for portraits and wide shots of landscapes."

    "Very good...great len...This Tamron lens is afordable compared to a equivalent canon lens and the picture quality is very good, this gives the average person a chance to take great shoots at a reasonable price....This lens is a bit heavy to hand hold for more than a few shots, will need a mono or tripod for best results."

    "Great !...Very nice...This lens allows me to have more room for filming and still get a bokeh affect...I will say the lens is huge and heavy and of course not that much light comes in like the 50mm 1.4...not a carry around lens, unless u dont mind it, you'll need a sturdy tripod, mine is a Manfrotto....Like many of you I did a lot of research of all the lenses in the market that I could upgrade my kit lens to, and I found this to be by far the best for my purposes."

    "Great lens...Great lens but slow...If you buy this lens, do yourself two favors, buy a good monopod/tripod, and get the Sigma TS-81 grip, which improves the balance of the lens a thousand-fold, it also makes carrying the lens easier....First off, this is a large, metal lens, so yes, it's heavy, but if you've ever used a super telephoto or large prime lens, the weight won't be too much of a shock."

    "Love it...Worth it...It might be a little lacking for pros or very experienced amateur photographers, but if you're still a relatively casual photographer like myself, this is a huge step up from the kit lens, and combined with the 50mm 1.8 and a decent zoom lens, it's a great option to get a nice range of focal lengths covered....Since these cameras have the cropped sensor, the 50mm lens acts as if it was an 80mm lens, which is good for portrait work, but is too long a lens for using indoors like a birthday party, or in a museum."

    "Nice lens...I love it!...Kinda pricy but worth it would be a excellent lens for side line sports shooters who have early evening games or late morning/early evening wild life shooters on a crop sensor body because as long as you keep the zoom range in the f4 aperature you'll still be able to keep a decent enough shutter speed for moving objects and it gives you the 1.6 magnification so your range will be better than that on a full frame....Living out west a zoom lens is a must have and this one is a perfect choice."
