Additional information:

The Tamron AF 28-200 mm f/ 3.8-5.6 Aspherical LD IF 171D  is a universal zoom lens with internal focusing and 1:4 scale macro capabilities.

Angles of  view 75°-12°

Rather noisy micro motor and slow focusing.

The front lens is non-rotating, which enables a convenient use of gradient and polarizing filters.

The Tamron AF Aspherical LD 28-200 mm f/ 3.8-5.6 lens produces a pronounced distortion at 28-35 mm (barrel) and  at 160-200 mm (pincushion).

At 200 mm and open aperture it is not sharp enough.

The Tamron AF Aspherical LD 28-200 mm f/ 3.8-5.6 can be recommended as a universal low-end kit lens.

Period of use: 3 months

Strengths:
  • good focusing.
  • good price.
  • surprisingly lighter than one would expect.

Weaknesses:

  • It is big.
  • Focusing seems offhand turning is counter-clockwise, though I wonder if mine was for a left-hander . . .

Comments:

I should mention that I brought this used for my Digital Nikon, it was a great price for what I was looking for. This 16yr old lens takes some amazing pictures, easily earned back it's purchase price.
