of Nothing But Bonfires found the Tamron lens a "nice improvement over the standard built-in lens that came with my Rebel, and it certainly made me feel a whole lot fancier when I was using it. Yep, that’s some technical camera speak right there.” Check out the photos that she took as part of her job.

Nicole of Pinch My Salt took her Tamron lens on a trip didn't have to worry about changing lenses, “…this one lens definitely covered all my needs!” As a food blogger, she had one final test to see how the Tamron lens would hold up in place of her standard food photography lens. See the results!

Rhoda of Southern Hospitality moved outside after taking some photos inside her house. “I took a few pics with it on the deck and could zoom in closer on birds that came to visit and even could get pretty close to the treetops outside, when my other lens wouldn't even come close.”

Dana of Made shared, “It replaces the need for me have multiple lenses. I'm often shooting close-ups of fabric for tutorials. But when I'm out with my kids I prefer a long lens so I can capture the natural moment; to get those candid shots. So, with this lens, I can truly put away my other two lenses.”

Jaden of Steamy Kitchen was impressed by the lenses 15x zoom, making it a “great travel and food lens - because you can take a panoramic shot of the beach as well as closeup shots like the zucchini”. Check out her Middle Eastern Stuffed Zucchini photos!

Stephanie of NieNie Dialogues loves, " the way it was so easy to take close up's as well as far away photos. It was so crisp, clear, and colorful. It was amazing. The lens is hearty, yet light enough to carry around to take photos."
