It will mount on a camera.
It will take a picture.
|negative:||Why would anyone buy an f5-f6.3 300mm zoom?|
Why buy any lens built like this abomination of very cheap plastic?
|comment:||AVOID THIS LENS LIKE THE PLAGUE.|
This has to be the most horrible zoom lens of this focal range that I have ever touched. Build quality is absolute crap! This thing feels like a toy. I could go into detail, but why bother. Just realize that the build is lousy as hell. I won't waste anymore time reviewing this lens, because that is exactly what this lens is, a waste. Truly one of Tamron's worst offerings. The bottom line is, lens build does not get alot worse than this. It's a lens. It mounts on a camera and takes pictures. That is all you can say in its defense.
Bought in a box lot on Ebay, in order to get the other items. I am just glad I found somebody to buy it from me.
Not to insult, but how can you previous reviewers give this lens a 4 in build rating?
