Tamron's 60th Anniversary Model:
Unparalleled optical performance in a fast and steady telephoto zoom: In the pursuit to achieve the most outstanding image resolution in the 70-300mm class, Tamron's Anniversary lens - the SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) - utilizes an advanced optical design that features an LD (Low Dispersion) and an XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) lens element made from specialized materials that prevent chromatic aberration. As a result, the SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) boasts sharper contrast and greater descriptive performance than all others in its class. In addition, it is the first Tamron lens sporting a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), Tamron's very own ultrasonic auto-focus drive mechanism This USD mechanism delivers fast focusing, making it a perfect telephoto zoom choice for photographing sports, racing, or other fast-moving subjects. The lens also boasts Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization to assist in handheld photography, not only at long focal length ranges where blurring is common, but also under low-lit conditions, dramatically enhancing photographic freedom. This combination of best in class image resolution, Ultrasonic Silent Drive and Vibration Compensation is a new achievement of Tamron technology culminating in the production of a premium 70 300mm telephoto zoom lens.
Compatible Mount Canon, Nikon and Sony**

I love this lens for bird photography. Makes it easy. Manual focus at any time helps a lot.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

GREAT PRICE, fast, quiet, consistent
I have used the lens for shooting sporting events at indoor events (basketball, cheerleading) and outdoor events (baseball, skiing) and have really liked the ability to lock in focus to give a great bokeh when shooting. Indoors, I do need to tweak some settings on the camera if action is fast as the largest apeture is a 4 and I generally have tried to shoot at 2.8 but with the tweaks, it worked great. Also does a great job with video shooting on my A55.
