Designed for optimum handling ease and portability and weighing only 458g, this lens offers the distant capture and foreshortening effects characteristic of the 300mm ultra-telephoto world. It's ideal for handheld shooting with full-frame and APS-C format SLRs.
Tamron's lightweight, compact, high-image-quality telephoto zoom lens with macro capability of 1:2 has improved multi-coating for optimised performance with digital SLR cameras as well as film cameras.
Flipping a macro switch in the focal length range of 180mm to 300mm obtains a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2 at an unsurpassed minimum focus distance of 95cm, enabling close-up shots of flowers, insects, and other objects that normally require the use of a specially designed macro lens.

A handy lens to have in the bag if you are on a budget. Images are for the most part clear and sharp until you get to the big end. Sharpness drops away quite a bit at 300mm. Macro performance is surprisingly good for a 1:2 zoom lens. Quite a decent lens for the money.
Easy to use
