The Tamron AF 55-200mm F/4-5.6 Di II LD Macro (Model A15)  is a telephoto zoom lens. This is a convenient supplement for the standard 18-55mm lens for those who lacks for an affordable telephoto range. The lens is intended for digital SLR Canon EF-F, Nikon DX, Sony A APS-C-sized cameras (incompatible with full-frame cameras) and features a range of efficient focal lengths of 85-310 mm. The optical scheme employs multicoated optical elements, including one LD glass element.

The Tamron AF 55-200mm F/4-5.6 Di II LD Macro pros:

  • good resolution at the center at 55 mm,
  • almost no distortion at 55 mm,
  • slight astigmatism
  • vignetting is invisible when stopping down,
  • rather accurate autofocus,
  • affordable price.

The Tamron AF 55-200mm F/4-5.6 Di II LD Macro cons:

  • plastic body,
  • notable chromatic aberrations, especially at 200 mm,
  • visible coma,
  • flare in back light,
  • slow and noisy autofocus.

Evaluation of  Tamron designations:

  • AF - autofocus
  • Di II (Digitally integrated) - optimized for digital cameras with APS-C sized sensors only (max. 24x16 mm)  
  • LD - "Low Dispersion" elements decreasing aberrations and increasing contrast  
  • MACRO - macrography
