Great in Combination with Sony A6000

  • Summary: So far so good. Coupled with Sony A6000. PROs Own this zoom for about 1 month. Does perform well. Cannot judge of how fast it is, but compared to my former 18-250 Sigma (for my Sony A57), it seems better. Sharp focus. Good stabilization at max magnification.

This is the lens Canon should have made

  • Excerpt: This is a solidly built, nicely made lens. Fit and finish are very good. The lens mount is metal, locks up smoothly and correctly. The zoom and focus rings are nicely ribbed rubber.

Love it - Just want I was looking for

Maria Antonieta, B&H Photo
15 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I wanted a travel lens for my Sony Nex7 as I was tired of changing lenses on the run. The Sony lens that I was considering was too heavy and made my camera clumsy. I found this lens at the Tamron Expo exhibit and returned the following day for a second look. As soon as I held the lens it felt right.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Zoom Is A Bit Tight

Awesome all-purpose lens for the price!

  • Summary: This lens works great for all general purpose pics. With one kid in sports and another learning how to walk, I needed a good lens that could take telephoto shots while also allowing me to take portraits and close ups with having to change lenses all the time. This lens does just that.

Great lens, better image stabilization

Not Available, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: Overall, great lens. The limited/slow f stop could be better. f3.6 at 18mm and f6.3 at 200mm. This makes it primarily a day-time lens, however... Image stabilization is the best of the NEX lenses. It's almost sticky-like. Why is this not talked about more!?

Great Buy for the Sony NEX-5r

Ritchin Sen "ritches", Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: The quality of the pictures are the same as the Sony lenses. Reason for the 5 stars is that you can carry a single lens to cover the 18-200mm range. Decently weighted to give you a solid feel. Unlike Sony lenses, when zooming the lend had a very rough feel to it. Could be a con for dinner people.

Extraordinary lens

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: From my uses this lens is as good as the kit zoom, but with an 11.1 zoom ratio versus the kit's 3.1. I use it on an NEX-6 and is seems to focus more reliably than the Sony. IOW, I've had trouble with the Sony failing to focus, whereas while the Tamron 18-200 might take a small moment longer, it is...
