  • Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD SP AF

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    very good AF, very good contrast and color, 6yr. warranty
    none at this time

    I use this zoom on a Canon 50d & the pictures come out very nice ! Any tests, reviews in any magazine says this lens on a crop sensor Dslr is best in class ! From 70mm to 200mm excellent & at 300mm very good. I'm getting 3 to 4 F/stops of VC stabilization which is awesome ! The only downside and it is a very, very small downside is when the VC engages, you look thru the view finder and the image jumps in a snap. But I'm getting use to it. That is the only downside or I would have rated it perfect 10. Either Canon or Nikon mount you have, this will be a very good lens to have in your bag ! The best 70 to 300 zoom for the money !
