Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon Cameras
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Very Surprised. Very Pleased 04/27/2014

This review is from: Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon Cameras

Pros: Razor Sharp w/ no back or front focusing issues.
Fast Focus
TriPod Collar Mount can be removed without removing the lens.
2.8 throughout the focal range
Vignetting is minimal
VC (or IS) works very well.
Weather sealed.

Cons: CA is a bit more noticeable than I would like.
Reach is about 185 not 200.
As with other Tamron lenses, the color reproduction is a bit on a the cool side, but only enough for a pro to notice.

Other Thoughts: Obviously for Canon bodies the only two viable options in this focal length is the Tamron 70-200 and the much revered Canon 70-200 L. Is the Canon version better? Yes. Is it a $1000 better? No. Do yourself a favor and save a $1000 and try this lens first. You'll be pleasantly surprised. I do like the color reproduction better on the Canon glass, but that's part of what your paying for with L glass. However this lens does not disappoint. It would be nice if Tamron made the barrel white like the Canon version, but I suppose it would only be an issue if you are shooting in the sun for extended periods. When I can afford it I will upgrade to the Canon lens, however I'm certainly not unhappy with this lens and it has quickly become one of my favorites.

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The board is laid out nicely. USB 3.0 Header.

Cons: Turned on this board for the first time and within a few seconds started to smell something burning. 5 seconds later the board shut off and wouldn't start back up. It fried my graphics card and almost fried my CPU. Maybe some other folks had better luck with this one, but not me. I should have stuck with ASUS. Lesson learned.

2 out of 5 eggs This case is pretty, but a pain in the rear 01/10/2014

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, White_Retail

Pros: Beautiful looking case. The pros stop there.

Cons: Card reader is 2.0 not 3.0. Attempting to retro fit the DVD bay for HD storage is a challenge on anybody's best day. The PSU is in the front of the case and hidden by the stand so laying it flat on it's side is not an option. Only 300w power supply.

Other Thoughts: If you need a small case that looks good and you only have one hard drive, low profile graphics card and don't need a lot of total power this one is a winner. Anything beyond that, find another case.
