While overall dimensions are confined to the absolute minimum, the SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) MACRO zoom lens is packed with features that allow stress-free photography: a versatile MFD of just 37.4 inches over the entire zoom range; best-in-class maximum macro magnification ratio of 1:3.1 at f=200mm; and an advantageous internal focusing (IF) system. The new tele-zoom lens covers a desirable focal length range of 70mm medium telephoto to 200mm telephoto when mounted on full-size format SLR cameras and a focal length range from 109mm to 310mm* ultra telephoto when mounted on a DSLR camera with an APS-C sized imager. *Tamron uses an approx. of 1.55X

Great lens for the money
from San Diego, CA
This is a great lens for the money. Clear, accurate shots. I use it mostly for tight headshots in a non-studio environment so I can be farther away and get unposed shots. It is heavy and almost requires a monopod in non-flash environments to avoid shake. That is fine though as one would expect that in lens of this size.

About Me Photo Enthusiast
I purchased this lens several months ago and finally got to give it a good workout in April, on a trip to Yosemite National Park. I was very pleased with all of the results. The auto focus is a little noisier than the Canon line, but not so much that it bothers me. If you don't have a monopod, I strongly suggest that you invest in one, as it is heavy. I did carry this lens attached to my XTi, around the San Diego Zoo 2weeks ago. But, I survived. The pictures that I got of many of the animals, was well worth the effort. I am very happy with my purchase.
