  • Conclusion: The Tamron 18-270mm is an excellent all-round lens, capable of being used for landscape, wildlife, portraits and even close-up shots. It's a great lens for the enthusiast photographer and boasts a full set of features including stabiliser, ultrasonic focus and good quality optics.

Expert Review

DP Review
3 December 2012
  • Summary: The Tamron 18-270mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD is a perfectly competent superzoom that squeezes a huge focal length range into a compact package. Autofocus is slower than its competitors, however, and image quality is weak at the telephoto end.
  • Pros: Very useful 15x zoom range, Good image quality at wideangle, Quiet autofocus, Reasonably effective image stabilization, Compact and lightweight
  • Cons: Rather soft at telephoto, especially wide open, Strong distortion across most of the range, Chromatic aberration at each end of the zoom (most pronounced at telephoto), Slower autofocus than its peers

Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC PZD Review

What Digital Camera
5 August 2011
  • Summary: Overall it seems that Tamron has been just a bit too ambitious in this lens. This is unfortunate given that its 270mm setting is a key selling point but there will doubtless be times when owners will be grateful for the extended zoom range that, to some extent, does trump other more modest zooms.

16 May 2013

  • Pros: Impressive image quality (normal to short telephoto), Excellent resistance to flare, Effective vibration correction system
  • Cons: Slow, occasionally indecisive autofocus, Geometric distortion across much of the zoom range, Chromatic aberration at wide and telephoto

Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD review

Amateur Photographer

  • Summary: As every photographer knows, prime lenses provide the best optical quality. A zoom lens has benefits, but the greater the zoom range the more compromises that have to be made on image quality.

Test: Tamron 3.5-6.3/18-270 mm Di II VC PZD (Reise-Zoom-Objektiv für Nikon-DSLR)

  • Excerpt: Fazit: Das Tamron 3.5-6.3/18-270 mm Di II VC PZD hinterlässt im Test einen wenig souveränen Eindruck. Zwar weist das Reisezoom-Objektiv für APS-C-Kameras einen erstaunlich großen Brennweitenbereich vor. Die geringe Auflösung sowie zahlreiche Abbildungsfehler trüben allerdings die Euphorie.
  • Pros: Brennweite, Auflösung Bildzentrum, Bildstabilisator, Ultraschall-Autofokus
  • Cons: Auflösung Ränder, Sichtbare Farbsäume, Deutliche Verzeichnung

  • Excerpt: Fazit: Das Tamron AF 3.5-6.3/18-270 mm Di II VC PZD macht im Test nur eine mittelmäßige Figur. Zwar bietet das Reise-Zoom-Objektiv für APS-C-Kameras von Sony den größten Brennweitenbereich mit gerade noch guter Auflösung.
  • Pros: 15fach-Zoom, Oft treffsicherer Autofokus
  • Cons: Randschärfeabfall, Abbildungsfehler, Hörbarer Autofokusmotor, Nur für APS-C
