Tamron AF 55-200mm F4-5.6 Di II A-mount lens review by BasK
|BasK#677 date: Apr-11-2006|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I have experience with this lens|
|compared to:||KM 18-70, sigma 75-300 zoom|
|positive:||Light weight, optical quality, price|
|negative:||manual focus, sun hood|
|comment:||I bought this lens as a replacement for the (now 14 year old) Sigma zoom from which I found the results disapointing.|
The pictures taken with this Tamron are all very sharp (sharper than from the other ones) and also the possibility to focus within 1 meter is very convenient. For it's price it is a very good lense.
The bajonet for the sun hood is a bit tight. Also the mount is (like the KM 18-70) from plastic.
