Tamron lenses amazing yet disappointing personally.
5

I love Tamron lenses, in that they prioritize making small, lightweight lenses at great prices. Sigma lenses are generally significantly larger and heavier, and Sony lenses this as well as 3x the price.

However, I find these Tamron lenses suffer horribly from letting dust inside the lens. I own the 28-200 E mount, as well as the 70-180mm, and both are fantastic lenses in terms of sharpness etc. but both, after only a few months, have several noticeable pieces of dust inside, between different elements. I have not had this nearly as bad with other lenses, so it is a little disappointing..
