    Comments about Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di USD Zoom Lens for Sony:

    I've only had the lens a few weeks, but it has performed very well compared to those taken in the same location with a kit lens.
    The only draw back is having to depress the shutter button half-way for a moment before the auto-focus kicks in (a battery drain). I lost a few shots before I realized I needed to change my methods. It may make it tougher as I now have to anticipate the shot, but thank heavens my Sony SLT A65 shoots at 12 frames per second. So now I carry an extra battery or two and use hi speed shooting mode more than I had in the past to compensate.

      Comments about Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di USD Zoom Lens for Sony:

      I bought this lens to go with my SLT-A65 to take pictures of kids at tumbling and trampoline competitions. Most of the venues are not well lit, so you really need a lens like this to get good action shots. Even though I'm a novice, I've been able to get some great shots since I got the Tamron.
