With this in mind, the existing lens is a potentially attractive choice for owners of Pentax and Sony bodies with built-in sensor-shift stabilisation, because it’s super-cheap at only £130. After all, why pay for optical stabilisation if you don’t need...

One of Tamron's Digitally Integrated (Di) lenses, the AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro is designed for use on both full-frame and APS-C-sized cameras. It's available in Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony fit and, on APS-C bodies, the effective zoom range is...
Good Only a third of the price of some budget telephoto zooms, Decent optical performance at the short end of the zoom range, Quite light in weight for a fullframe lens...
Bad Lacks Tamron's Vibration Correction stabiliser, Poor sharpness in the 250300mm zoom range, Basic autofocus system is very sluggish...
Bottom line The Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro is quite an old design and is now outclassed and outdated by most of the newer competition. It may be cheap, but it's not a particularly good buy.

This is a very usable lens if you can live without IS (eg. if you'll be using it on a tripod), users on a tight budget and those who will make use of its close-focusing (though not true macro) capability.
Good Closeup facility...
Bad No image stabilisation...

Regarding its extremely low price tag you cant really expect a stellar performance from the Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 LD Di macro but from a value perspective it is fairly amazing what it can give you. The resolution is very good till 200mm. At 300m...

While there are a few standout bargains to be found, the lens world is much like the rest of life: Theres no free lunch, you tend to get what you pay for. Its thus no surprise that lenses as inexpensive as the Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 dont perform as...

The AF17-50mm f/2.8 zoom produced numerous excellent images at all focal lengths with high sharpness, remarkable resolution of intricate detail, and snappy contrast. Even at f/2.8, central sharpness is very high at all focal lengths, a sign of superior...
