Conclusions from Photozone: “The build quality is on a surprisingly high level for such an affordable lens. Tamron used some plastic components but only where it didn’t hurt the structural integrity of the lens… Tamron’s VC is pretty good till about 500mm but it struggles to keep a steady image beyond.
