Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Overview

  • 1Description

This Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Lens made for the Nikon SLR system incorporates a motor built into the lens itself, which gives it the capability to autofocus with all Nikon DSLR cameras (including the D40 and D40x). In addition, with the motor built into the lens, focusing will be quieter and more responsive.

The 70-300mm Di LD Macro 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. It 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 1.6' (95cm) 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/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Reviews

    70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Autofocus Lens for Nikon AF is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 142.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny! I use this lens for my Nikon D40. I mostly shoot with it outdoors in broad daylight with a fast shutter speed. It also works quite well indoors with a bounce-flash.It doesn't have Vibration Reduction (VR) like its Nikon equivalent, but for what I use it for the VR isn't needed... Even at 300MM. But if I were using it in low-light conditions, then the VR would of course be necessary. Anyway, I saved $320 by getting the Tamron. Still can't justify buying a lens that costs more than the camera itself.Overall though, I'm very happy with it. The outdoor macro shots with the blurry backgrounds are incredible. Makes me look like a photography genius.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice glass for the money I shoot this on a Nikon D60 with an aftermarket battery grip and find the lens weight to be acceptable. The Built in motor can be somewhat loud at times, but keep in mind the cost effective price. This lens will search a bit at times for focus, nothing that will cause a missed shot under normal conditions however. Picture quality is crisp and color vibrant from 70mm up to 300mm, with minimal distortion that is very acceptable for the money. Bottom line, if you need a cost effective zoomer than this glass is a good bet. One final note, if you plan on shooting fast action wildlife or sports with this lens the auto focus speed may be an issue?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Zoom & Macro Lens for the price This Tamron 70-300mm lens is very versatile. It takes very sharp zoom photos and macro shots. I use this on my Nikon D7000 and it is as good as Nikon lens in many ways. (It is not a Nikon lens but it does a very good job at a fraction of the price). When using for Macro shots, use manual focusing, otherwise it will keep on hunting for AF and will be frustrating for a while you may never even get the AF. Please follow the instructions on turning on and off of the Macro function. The manual comes with the lens is not good. Download the instruction manual from tamron-usa.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for what it is This lens is quite good for what it is. It is a macro and decent variable aperture zoom for under $. The results are fairly sharp if you have decent lighting or a tripod, but without stabilization your results won't always be keepers. It has good color reproduction and is well made with no lens creep. It is very slow to focus in low light and still relatively slow in good light, but this can always be overcome if you use your manual focus. The macro mode is very nice as it gets you very close to your subject for those very very fine details or insect shots. All in all this is a great budget lens especially if you are broke after switching full frame and need a new telephoto lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I'm not a professional. Still learning and I've bee eyeing a Nikon 70-300 mm but couldn't justify the price at this time for me. So after chatting with a B&H rep, I decided on this lens and I'm not sorry! I really like it, takes fantastic photos. The auto-focus seems to be fast, fast enough for me anyways. LOVE the macro--so fun to zoom in on tiny details. But like I said, I'm a beginner and learning lots of thing yet. If you want a 70-300, try this lens. For the money, it's appears to be a great bargain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens! I bought this lens after dropping my old 70-300mm recently which was another brand. I was immediately impressed at the quality and wish I had dropped my old lens years ago. I really love the macro function on this lens which I use probably half the time shooting. It was the main reason I went with this lens over the Nikon lens which was much more expensive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, versatile lens I've been using this lens for a few weeks now and so far I love it. The images are crystal clear and the macro mode is really great for closeup shots. My only problem with the lens is with the autofocus. I have a Nikon D40x so in order for me to have autofocus the lens needs to do it (which this one does). Only problem I've had is the lens not accurately focusing on my object. I've changed the autofocus mode on the camera to each of the three available modes, but so far it's not always accurate. Sometimes it's dead on, other times it's dead wrong. Since I'm used to doing manual focusing anyways, this isn't a big deal; but for some people they may have some trouble getting used to it. Otherwise, great lens and incredible price! I recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tamron 70-300 The lens offers great zoom and quick focusing. The lens is not top of the line but is great for a enthusiast/hobbyist on a bugdget and possibly even a semi-pro. Low Light performance is limited because of the aperture size. Macro work is very limited with the focus only being as close as 39.5 in. and 1:2 magnification ratio if your looking for a macro this is not your lens. The zoom will have an equivelant of a 105-450mm on a full frame camera. Overall the lens performs great and is a great price, its outdone my expectaions.

    Is this a brand new lens?Also, would it be better to use this lens or a 1.4 teleconverter. I am really questioning the quality of the picture between the two.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, this is a brand new lens. Since a teleconverter is incompatible with lenses that have a focal length wider than 70mm, I advise you use this lens.
