The Tamron 70-150mm f/3.5 has been in my wishlist for over a year. If you are looking for a great telephoto zoom lens on a shoestring budget, this is probably THE best I can find for you. Because?
> Max aperture is constant f/3.5
> It is tiny, compact and lightweight
> Has a built in retractable lens hood
> Glass is treated with Tamron's Broad Band Anti Reflective Multi Coating (BBAR MC)
> Adaptable to any camera mount with the right adapter (Nikon adapter included here)
> Push-pull zoom is great for capturing fast action scenes
> Parfocal zoom (the focus remains constant when zooming)
> Excellent image quality!
> No extra buttons or switches to get to macro, just keep focusing until you reach the minimum focusing distance.
> This lens is close focusing with 0.7 meters in its whole range (others normally have MFD=1.5 meters, or the macro is on either end)
> 8 aperture blades makes nice rounded bokeh balls
> You like blurry backgrounds? You get nice bokeh from 70mm f/3.5 onwards!

Frequently Asked Questions:
1) Bitin yung focal length?
> Normally, we don't always zoom all the way to 200mm (referring to those 70-200mm zooms) so this is a welcome attribute. That's why this lens is light and compact. I love to bring these tiny zooms over the big 70-200mm's.
2) Does the lens have AF? Is it hard to use?
> This lens is fully manual, but anything can be learned and mastered with a good technique. The best way to master anything is to start practicing NOW.
3) Can I use this on my camera?
> You can mount this on your camera (Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic, Konica, Minolta, Sigma, etc.) as long as you have the correct adapter.
4) How to use this lens for macro/closeups?
> Just focus all the way to 0.7 meters at 150mm for best magnification. Normally for macros, you want to use f/8 or smaller. If you have a macro filter, teleconverter or extension tube, then you can further increase the magnification.
5) Pwede ba ito for portraiture?
> Any lens can be used for portraiture. But the longer the focal length, the more you can produce blurry backgrounds. I recommend using this lens around 105mm f/5.6
6) What is the advantage of push-pull zoom?
> Focus and zoom are one. If you are shooting fast action scenes, this is what you want, rather than tinkering with two separate focus/zoom rings and missing the shot.
7) What can the lens be used for?
> Anything you can think of. Product closeups, flowers, macros, landscape, nice portrait shots with blurry backgrounds, group shots, candid, street, sports, photo journal, events, parties, etc.
8) Pwede for any Nikon DSLRs?
> Absolutely. The Adaptall/Nikon adapter included here is compatible with all Nikon film and digital SLRs.
