  • Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2 AF

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    sharp image, macro, good quality
    slow AF, hunts in low lighting, soft at 300mm

    just got this lens recently...
    its the first lens I have invested on aside from the kit lens that came w/ my 400D

    so far I find the macro quite handy... you just need to be conscious on how to switch to macro mode and back..

    it delivers sharp images at 70mm to 100mm yet it is soft beyond 180mm..

    slow AF esp in low lighting, its better to switch to manual focusing .. quite the hassle if your covering indoor events

    so far, I guess you just simply can't have everything
    and I do find this lens a worthy investment in my part
