Most helpful reviews

Robert, Exeter Keen photographer, knowledgable

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good price for a medium telephoto lens. Quite a bright image and a good spread of aperture values. Free filter include in the cost makes an extra saving.
Bad points:
None really - just not quite the brightness and crispness of a own make lens, but at this price one shouldn't complain. Does the job.

Paul, Cardiff Enthusiastic photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Light and easy to use, tested on the sony a65.
Good value for money.
Image quality good, except when cropping in a lot afterwards on the computer at 6M JEG, better at 24M JPEG.
Marco surprisingly good.
Bad points:
Not really a bad point, but I have noticed a difference in the image quality when compared to the tamron SP 17-50mm, but not surprising considering the price difference.

Manufacturer's Description

A general consumer telephoto lens, this lens is designed exclusively for APS-C digital SLR cameras and is an excellent choice for a second lens.
This versatile telephoto lens (equivalent to 310mm in 35mm format) is ideal for portraits, sports, landscapes, and even closeups that rival macro lenses with a minimum focus distance of 0.95m with a ratio of 1:3.5.
Its optical design is optimized for digital SLR cameras with LD (low dispersion) lens elements to compensate for axial and magnification chromatic aberrations. Internal surface coatings (multiple-layer coatings on the lens’ cemented surfaces) prevent ghosting and flare as well as enhance peripheral illumination.
This light and compact lens gives even a beginner the tools to easily capture beautiful and engaging photos.
