Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens – Review:
GOOD LENS @ LOW PRICE FOR BEGINNERS!
I did go through a lot of reviews of this lens specially the negative ones. However as a beginner I felt the minute details the reviewers were considering was hardly a concern for beginners like me. Moreover a good lens to put into use for learning telephotography and macro mode before delving into the high class lenses which are way too costly…It does autofocus with my Nikon D5100 which makes it even more special at this low price.
