Tamron AF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro

The lens itself was nice for beginner. Photo guality was nice, expect for chromatic aberration. Also the price was cheap. Actually too cheap. The flaws were the amount of chromatic aberration, slow autofocus and the lack of USD focus and Vibration Compensation. But, after 5 months of usage, it started showing error for missing contacts between the camera and the lens. Also, the aperture started jamming into F/32 randomly. I sent it to Tamron Service, and they said it could not be fixed. So, I got my money back, and bought a newer version of this lens, wich had VC, and USD. It is amazing and you should buy that instead of this.
