Tamron 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

The Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro lens is a quality compact ultra tele zoom lens which covers the 70mm to 300mm telephoto range, with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2 at the tele end.

This lens delivers ultimate handling ease and portability in the field due to its lightweight size and mechanical operation. Best suited for shooting outdoors to make full use of the real telephoto of 300mm as well as providing diversity in portraiture using the medium focal length ranges of 70mm to 135mm.

Di (Digitally Integrated Design) is a designation Tamron puts on lenses featuring optical systems designed to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras.

Di Design
Digitally Integrated is a designation Tamron puts on lenses featuring optical systems designed to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras. By employing "Internal Surface Coatings" and multiple-layer coating technology on ordinary elements, ghosting and flare due to reflections that occur when light enters through the front element and reflections caused by the imagers themselves are reduced to the absolute minimum.
Macro Effect of 1:2 in Telephoto Zoom Range
Flipping a macro switch in the focal length range of 180mm to 300mm allows entry into the macro range, for photography as close as 37.4" (95 cm) from the subject. In the macro range, one can take advantage of the telephoto effect and a maximum magnification ratio up to 1:2. In addition, since the focal length in the macro range spans from 180mm to 300mm, zooming can also be used to adjust composition.
LD Glass
LD glass elements reduce various aberrations while minimizing the fall-off of light at the corners.

    Tamron 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Lens for Canon EOS is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens for the Price. I use this lens for outdoor events, portraits, and nature photography. This lens has great color, and it is sharp. If you are strapped for money and need a long focal length, then this is a great choice for you. The only thing negative I can say about this lens is the autofocus is clunky and loud and at first it is a little slow to focus, but with use, this seemed to not be so much of an issue. If you use manual focus alot this won't even be an issue. I really love this lens and am very glad to have it in my lens collection! I am not an avid macro photographer, so I really can't say much about the macro feature, but the lens as a whole is wonderful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice as a first telephoto I recently got one of these lenses to expand my rebel xt into the telephoto range. Obviously for the price I wasn't expecting an L series or anything spectacular. Contrary to some of the negative reviews other photography sites post, this lens produces very little if any chromatic aberration, and focuses quite smoothly. While it did take some getting used to, the built-in macro mode really impressed me. The only two things I'd change about this lens are the focus (a wee bit faster) and the lack of image stabilization (as with all non-IS telephoto lenses). A great deal for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the money, acceptable I purchased this lens to replace another brand that started having problems. I shoot a lot of outdoor sports and the 70-300 range is what I use the most. I chose this lens after doing a lot of research, also at the time of purchase budget was in mind. It feels good on my Rebel XT, takes a decent photo but a little soft at 300mm. The weight and balance are good and it is easy to zoom in and out. For the price it is a good lens. Expertise: Very advanced amateur Problems Encountered: Slower focus than my previous lens. Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Sigma 70-300 APO Items I Recommend: 1A filter

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lense I've used Love this product! Sure you need a tripod but that's not enough to take away. from the product although I've been able to use it without a tripod on portraits that came out great. I've used it for portraits and flora and fauna and so far it's not produced any negative results. It also hasn't had a slow autofocus like most people have said, which really if your investing this much in photography you should be comfortable using manual. I've really enjoyed the macro setting and produced some awesome photos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Lens. The best low budget telephoto zoom Nice build, nice colors, decent AF, Good front lens cap(center pinch).For the price its a great lens with tons of ability.If you are looking for a telephoto zoom lens in this pricerange you really have only two choice IMO. This lens or theSigma 70-300.Personally I like Tamron better.The macro feature is icing on the cake. Problems Encountered: The only down sides to this lens is its a bit soft wide openand there is a bit of purple fringing on extremely highcontrast like midday sun reflecting on water. Previous Equivalent Items Owned: Sigma 50-500, Canon 100-400L Items I Recommend: None

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for the money I bought the lens as a gift for my wife and after checking it out, (I had to make sure it worked right??) almost couldn't give it to her. I wanted it for myself! I tried it for landscape, portrait and wildlife photography and have been really surprised how well the lens performs. The AF is a little slow and the lens is a bit heavy but seriously for the price what more could you ask for? I will be ordering one for myself very soon!
    Date published: 2008-12-29
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its an OK lens not great If compared to 75-300mm by canon which is a little cheaper than this one I would go with the canon lens. I figured being a 70-300mm it would give me more room in shorter shots plus the Macro function seem to grab my attention but when you compare quality of the photos the canon low end comes up better. Plus the zooming function is tight and not smooth and the focus is slow. Still an OK lens but I would have been happier with the canon 75-300mm since I have used it and the photos look better and more focused and clear.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tamron Zoom Telephoto AF 70-300mm f/4-5. This lens is good under most circumstances with plenty of light. If light is low, image quality suffers. Its tremendous range makes it a handy lens to have when space or weight are limited. The action of the lens when zooming feels a bit sluggish or stiff so it helps to practice using the lens before you go after those once in a life-time shots. Switching between Macro and Normal is not intuitive so, again, it helps to practice with the lens before using it.
