Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD AF review by s87343jim

  • Summary: This review is based on what this lens is designed for, not compare it to professional zoom and prime lenses. You have to understand what this lens is designed for. It is not to replace your 24-70mm (17-50mm) + 70-200mm + 300mm lens combo in terms of image quality, but weight saving instead.
  • Pros: Small, light weight, large zoom range, VC(IS/VR), sharp at wide angle
  • Cons: No manual focus over-ride, small aperture at tele end, lots of distortion, focus hunt at low light, noisy VC, not so sharp at tele end

  • Excerpt: lens has been returned twice already for repair. once needed new focusing gear.problem is you dont realize there is a problem till you review your pictures and see they are not sharply in focus.would not recommend this lens for that reason.

  • Summary: works very well on my Nikon D5100, I compared it to sigma 18-250 on Sony A55 it took better pictures at the long end of Osprey inflight ,then the Sigma. That may be me or the difference in cameras .I like them both. Would be hard to say which I like best.

Nice for an all purpose lens

  • Summary: I was looking for a lens that I could use as an all purpose lens, rather than having to change lenses all the time. I'm not a professional photographer by any means, but I love to take pictures....landscapes, family, wildlife, flowers, etc.

  • Summary: The lens is great, but most of the other items are very cheap. The case is not something I would ever use. Also, the packaging was terrible! I was surprised that nothing was broken!

  • Summary: so far really liking this lens - it replaced both our 28mm-50mm and our 50mm-250mm I decided on it because we were going on vacation and I did not want to be swapping lenses all the time, making taking opportune photos so much nicer, no missing shots due to switching lenses This was recommended by a...
