canon 10d and Tamron AF28-300mm Ultra Zoom F/3.5-6.3 XR Aspherical [IF] MACRO

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Tomash Bednarz, Jul 14, 2003.

  1. do u think, it's good option to buy such lens to 10d?
    or is better to buy something else in the same level of price?
    thanks in advance

    Any lens with 10:1 zoom ratio will be EXTREMELY compromised (save one...the
    Canon 35-350 L).

    You will be severely crippling your 10D's abilities with that lens.
    It will be soft, very distorted at moth ends of the zoom, and slow (small

    I think you should break that zoom range into at least two
    lenses...preferably three--with one being wider to help deal with the 10D's
    1.6 multiplication factor. You don't have to spend a ton of money to do FAR
    better here.

  3. thank you for answer,
    i was also thinking about 28-85mm & 75-300mm lenses - maybe it can be better
    for first i wanted to buy something very universal, but now reading many
    many tests and have to think more...
    and which lenses you can recommend?
    what about this one:

    I've also read a lot of good user reports for the Sigma 50-500. You
    wouldn't think a 10x zoom would be any good, but according to users it's not
    bad. Check out the Canon lens forum at

    that's exactly the set of lenses that Ibought with my 10D and love them.
    (I did get the IS version of the 75-300 and it rocks)

    I wish I could get some of the L lenses with constant aperature, but alas
    this year the body was the big ticket. maybe next year.

    Do u think, it's good option to buy rubber boots to Tuxedo ?
    Buy Canon lenses not El Chipo if You want to get optimal effects.

    It would most helpful to know how much you are willing to spend.

    This will help with realistic and worthy recommendations from people here.

    Also, please comment on what your main subject interests are (landscape,
    portraits, wildlife, etc.).

    I think Canon 10D is not a cheap camera I wish to have so much money to buy
    it. If somebody can afford to pay over $1500 for camera body why not to
    spent $100 or so more to buy original high quality Canon lens ? Any way some
    Sigma's El Cheapos do not work with every Canon's body, perhaps other El
    Cheapos like Tamron have the same problems.

    there is a review of that lens here

    it seems pretty good - my next purchase if nobody has any serious negative
    points to raise?

    by the way - how many marks are there in this group???

    If the difference was only $100, I'd go for Canon L glass every time.
    That's not the case. Just as an example, the Sigma 70-200 EX f/2.8 is $700
    at B&H. Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L (non-IS) is $1100, more than a 50% difference.
    In this case, the Sigma is a very good compromise for the non-pro on a
    budget. The money saved can go toward a 550EX flash or a pair of 420EX's.

    But, you can get a 70-200 f4 L for about the same price as the Sigma.
    It's very nice to have a big aperture, but if you ain't got sharpness,
    it doesn't matter. Plus of course, the Sigma would likely not work on
    the next Canon body you buy...
