Got this lens on a Nikon D300 at the moment, (no motor on the D3000), so using as an autofocus lens, great viewability and crisp images, very easy to use and lightweight,with a motored camera i am sure it would be even better. I paid £87 a couple of months ago, so is a great price.:thumbsup:

Assuming this is the model A17 - The manufacturers specs state compatible mounts as:

Canon AF, Konica Minolta AF-D, Nikon AF-D, and Pentax AF.

As a autofocus lens? - should that be manual focus?
#16
Thats a great price
#17
I think Waltersmith is right with the Canon fit.

The lens is available at Currys also and the Reevoo reviews point towards Canon. Also the recommended accessories are all Canon DSLRs.
#18
bargain but bit of a lottery when it doesn't even say which bodies they fit :?
#19
ordered, heat and rep
#20
Even a phone call to customer services failed to elicit which lens fitting it is for !!

Tamron 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di LD Macro - Canon Fit

Having read a number of positive reviews, I bought the latest Di version of this lens in the Canon AF mount for £119 which seemed like it was going to be a bargain. Wrong! It was really disappointing. Poor image quality at wide apertures and long focal lengths meant it had to go back. Not a patch on the Sigma 70-300 APO which I’ve owned previously. The Tamron offers about the same image quality as the non-APO version of the Sigma lens which again is pretty average. I could get decent results in a very narrow range of focal lengths and apertures but to me that really hinders my photography – I want to be able to use a zoom across its full range and wide open if needs be.

You can get decent images from this lens but it’s hard work and I was constantly thinking about whether or not you can get in to the optimal range. In poor light you simply cannot. This does not make for spontaneous images! It's a real shame as this is a well built, fine handling lens....altough personally I don't like plastic lens mounts.

If you’re on a tight budget I’d say the Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG Macro Lens is a better bet for around £30 more.
