Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro
For a budget lens, the Tamron 70-300mm performs surprisingly well, producing images with excellent resolution at shorter focal lengths. The Macro feature is a useful addition, offering an introduction to close-up photography that should yield excellent results if used within its limitations.
Overall I feel the Tamron is an excellent choice for those looking for a budget telephoto addition to the kit lens supplied with their camera.
