  • Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical IF Macro AF

    2 out of 10 points and not recommended
    VC works well
    Unable to focus on moving objects above 150mm

    I bought this lens to use with my Canon 40D. The lens is adequate when used for immobile objects. It is, however, unable to focus on moving objects at focal lengths above about 150mm. As this accounts for over 50% of my photography, I have found this lens to be quite unsuitable. If you are thinking of sports photography avoid this lens and buy something more capable. This lens does not live up to its very attractive specification. It is seriously flawed and highly over priced.
