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

What Digital Camera
25 February 2013
  • 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.

  • 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 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. The reason for choosing a superzoom is practicality - and for this single compact-lens solution there must be some concessions. The Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD is not only the longest-range superzoom lens of its kind, but also the smallest.

D-Photo and The Photographer's Mail
16 May 2013
  • Conclusion: The Tamron 18–270 Di II lens is a good lens for travellers who don’t want to have to carry around multiple lenses, or for photographers who have upgraded to a DSLR system and miss the range of their point-and-shoot
  • 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 Aspherical

ePHOTOzine
4 January 2010
  • Summary: At around £450, this is a great value lens for photographers after a portable all-in-one solution for their photography - for travel photographers, for example. Optically, it is not up to the standard of zoom lenses covering more modest focal length ranges, but that's no surprise. That said, used at its optimum apertures and with sound camera technique there is no reason why you can't get high quality pictures from this optic.
  • Pros: Zoom range, Price, Vibration Compensation feature, Light weight
  • Cons: Slow maximum aperture, Needs to be used at mid-apertures for best quality

  • Excerpt: Objektivet är inte tätat och känns billigare än vad originalen är, men fattningen är av metall, och Tamron ger fem års garanti.

Tamron AF 18-270mm F3.5-6.3 Di

digital-foto.no
7 November 2011
  • Summary: Det er en teknologisk maktdemonstrasjon som støttes opp av lydløs fokusering, hos Tamron kalt Piezo Drive, samt optisk bildestabilisering i VC-versjonene til Canon og Nikon. De er overraskende nok noen hundre kroner billigere enn ovennevnte pris, som gjelder Sony-versjonen uten stabilisering. På utsiden ligner objektivet til forveksling enhver annen Tamron-zoom. Verken i materialer, utførelse eller detaljer er det gjort noe spesielt ut av denne rekordholderen.

  • Excerpt: De er overraskende nok nogle hundrede kroner billigere end ovennævnte pris, der gælder Sony-versionen uden stabilisering. Udefra ligner objektivet til forveksling enhver anden Tamron-zoom. Hverken i materialer, finish eller detaljer er der gjort noget specielt ud af rekordholderen. Der er omskifter mellem autofokus og manuel fokus samt en zoomlås. Zoom- og fokusring kører samme vej som Sonys originalobjektiver, og zoombevægelsen er jævn.

DIGITAL FOTO
5 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Det kompakte objektiv fra Tamron fås til spejlreflekser fra Canon, Nikon og Sony, der er udstyret med APS-C-sensor. Objektivet er en ny version af en tidligere model og er udstyret med lydløs autofokus og optisk billedstabilisering. Finish og materialer er fine til prisen, fatningen er af metal, og der medfølger en god modlysblænde. Mekanisk er objektivet på niveau med de originale konkurrenter.
