    Tamron 28-200mm Very satisfied with this lens with its wide focal range although the focusing ring is a bit stiff for fine tuning. Images are sharp relative to camera used, more than adequate for A4 prints. Overall, a great lens for run-around use. Recommend.

    OK lens for the price The lens is a good starter lens but there are a few issues. It is a stop or two darker than my nikon. It hunts for focus a bit and is a bit slower in focus. Pictures in the 70-150 are fairly sharp but soft above 150. All in all I’ve taken some good photos with it and I still keep it on a second body but I don’t use it much anymore.

    New Glass, New life for a trusted Pentax Spotmatic !! The Tamron 28-200 AF-D LD Aspherical lens I purchased had been converted to a Pentax screw mount. I purchased it for my very old Pentax Spotmatic 35mm film camera. I am excited to find a very modern, high powered optic. This is a very compact, lightweight zoom. I just love the fact that it mounts and works well with such an old camera. I am in love with the lightweight compared to older glass for this style of lens mount. I cannot say enough on how glad I am able to move up with new lens technology without leaving my trusty Pentax 35mm film camera.
