Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 DI-II (IF) LD VC Macro Aspherical lens review

What Digital Camera
25 January 2010
  • Excerpt: How far does the the flagship Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 DI-II (IF) LD VC Macro Aspherical lens build on the promise of the earlier 18-250mm model, and does it make the extra £100 a worthwhile...

PhotoReview

  • Summary: A compact, lightweight all-in-one 15x zoom lens for cameras with APS-C sized sensors.Announced early in December 2010, Tamron's 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens introduces a new PZD (Piezo Drive) ultrasonic motor that delivers faster and quieter autofocusing. Claimed as the world's most compact, lightweight lens with a 15x zoom ratio it is designed for DSLR cameras with APS-C sized sensors and is initially available in Canon and Nikon mounts, with a Sony mount...
  • Pros: You want a general-purpose zoom lens that covers most types of subjects., You'd like a lens that requires no readjustment when you fit polarisers and graduated filters., You're happy to shoot and process raw files to optimise imaging performance.
  • Cons: You need close focusing and macro capabilities., You want a lens for a camera with a 36 x 24 mm sensor., You need a lens with excellent flatness of field for architectural photography and copying.

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

ePHOTOzine
20 January 2011
  • Summary: Super-zoom lenses have garnered a poor reputation for optical quality in the past, but as technology advances, new lenses have been released which change the public's perception of what to expect. This lens is one of those optics. Its lightweight, compact design makes the lens perfect for travel, especially when paired with a more compact SLR body and during testing it proved itself more than capable of delivering excellent quality results, when used within its...
  • Pros: Respectable optical performance, Compact, Lightweight, Vibration Compensation, Quick, silent focusing
  • Cons: CA levels a little high when stopped down below f/16, Higher price than much of the competition at the moment

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

  • Summary: Det bør allerede stå rimelig klart, jeg er ret vild med Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD! Jeg anmeldte forgængeren, uden Piezo Drive og lidt større fysiske dimensioner tilbage i marts 2010, og det imponerede mig. Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD skal tage arven op efter Tamron AF18-270mm/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD og det gør den med stil!
  • Pros: Utrolig alsidigt, Stor brændvidde, God billedstabilisator, Let og kompakt
  • Cons: Har tendens til at “zoome ud” når man går med kameraet i hånden
