Well-built and bright for this price! Had this on my Nikon D70 and took many nice pictures :)

Affordable normal zoom with aperture f / 2,8 and image stabilizer! Provides sharp images and you do not usually use flash even if the light is bad indoors. Used on the Nikon D200. The quality is as good as in Nikon own lens. Recommendable really!

Very good to handle, gives the impression of good quality. Very nice to use indoors as it gives noticeably brighter viewfinder image than kitobjektivet. Something big and bulky, but that's the price of high brightness. The picture quality surprisingly good even at full aperture, but already printed so the quality is very good at Darkening 2 steps. Use it on the D90 - with image stabilization + a little keyed up the ISO so you avoid the usually flash (if the subject is still of course ...). Amazing deal!

Affordable lens and very good build quality to be the Tamron. Very sharp except at 50mm and full aperture. Sharpest aperture at 5.6, but takes very good pictures even at 2.8. Image stabilization IS usable even on a lens of this range. Examples include handheld indoor shots and landscape shots in low light conditions.

+ Very much lens for the money. + Well built, sharp and bright. + Fixed brightness over the entire zoom range for manual shooting. It had cost a fortune with Nikon loophole. -The autofocus is not as fast and safe as dot on Nikon's own lenses. Can get pretty decent problem sometimes when trying to put the focus on a specific AF point. Works much better with more field measurement. -No AF-S with manual priority, which had facilitated when the lens is on the less successful focus hunting.

Clear 10'a in value. The optical quality will not be around other openings in this price range. Disagree with the statement below, either, think this lens jacket Sigma 18-50 macro. It is going to remark is well to build quality feels like a lens in its own price range, but you can not very well ask the Tamron will conjure? :)

So far, I am super happy with this lens. Have read that some are complaining about slow / noisy AF on the old model. I now have the newer model with built-in AF motor and it is both quiet and fast. I have not used the older model so I can not compare them.

A very affordable lens, good quality and approved sharpness.  Sigma 18-50 Macro with Hypersonic engine is much better, and cost the same.
