  • Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD SP

    7 out of 10 points and recommended

    I bought that lens for my Nikon 610. Used it 4 times. Had a filter in front element. Realize after less then a month it has already particle in front element. Return it to Amphis by Purolator (41,00 $ shipping) and they told me , it need to be cleaned and will cost me 225,00 $ ! and clenaning is not under warranty ? Well I presume the particle was already in the lens when I get it ? I had a Tamron 70-300mm since 10 years without any problem. That lens is a vacuum cleaner ??? In Photonews (belong to then) It is written dust and moisture resistance... A product should last more that a month without any dust...come on ? Value of the lens decrease with dust ? What will be the quality of the picture in a year of use ? Waiting for a positive answer from Amphis Canada to solve my problem. I own Nikon since 1974 and lens and never have any problem with lens (Tokina,Tamron or Nikkor) !
