Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Aspherical Lens Pro Kit for Canon EOS for $457

Tampaite, Amazon
6 February 2011
  • Summary: Purchased the Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Aspherical Lens for Canon from Beach Camera for $457. Was looking for an ALl-In-One lens and Tamron fits the choice with 18-270mm lens giving me enough zoom capability that I was looking and also, for the holidays Tamron was running a $100 rebate which bought the price down to reasonable level. This lens was more expensive than my camera and I hope you research your needs and then purchase the lens.

It's OK

  • 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!

good multi-purpose but take a tripod

HelenaJ, WEX
26 January 2014
  • Summary: Took this on holiday to India and was pleased with its range and ease of use. It is light enough to take anywhere and I didnt use any other lens. The down side for me was that on maximum magnification I needed a tripod, which is to be expected, but still a problem when travelling light. Also my camera is a Canon 60D and I found that when I was using the live view focus, which I do quite frequently, it was unacceptably slow.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Simple Controls, Versatile

18 - 250 Tamron Telephoto lense for Sony

Mr. P. G. Robinson, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: Been looking for sometime and agreed to take this one although ex demo and a lower price I was split between this and a new one. (The Sony alternative being much more exspensive). Just take it on holiday and found it to be fine, although a little more heavier than anticapated. Will now look at the shots and seen if my investment has been worth it. If they are OK I will then sell my 70-300 Sony lense.

Holiday Snapper

Anaxagoras, WEX
17 May 2012
  • Summary: Great for use on holidays (but do you really need that much zoom), or grabbing if you're going to the park with your kids.Not so great for more serious photography, e.g. Portraits of your family.About one in a hundred of my shots were massively overexposed, plus many others with modest (manageable) overexposure - I've never had these problems using Nikon lenses on the same camera.
  • Pros: Cost, Weight, Zoom range
  • Cons: Noisy autofocus, Overexposure problems, Quality not up to Nikon

Tamron 18-270 zoom

K. Roberts, Amazon
3 May 2011
  • Summary: I concur with a previous comment under Canon 18-135 lens. I also had both the Tamron 18-270 and the Canon 18-135 on a 550D. The Canon beat the Tamron easy.It was a lighter more crisp picture right the way through the range, and the Tamron wasnt as good in poor light. So unless you want the length go for the Canon 18-135. Not sure about Nikon lenses.

Not for the Nikon D90

Ms. K. M. Noel "kirstenoel", Amazon
12 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this lens for my Nikon D90. Originally I was going to buy a Nikon lens but the shop assistant in Jessops recommended this lens. I work on a cruise ship so a few days later I was off for 5 months. I primarily wanted this as a travel lens, for which it has won awards. Unfortunately the lens seems to have compatibility issues with the D90. Very often, the lens will freeze, the shutter will lock and the camera will not register the lens.

Not bad but could be better

Nick Sharratt "sput_uk", Amazon
14 November 2010
  • Summary: For the price, this is a good zoom lens, but... My Canon 550D doesn't recognise the lens and so can't auto correct for some vignetting. This isn't insurmountable as it can be corrected in post process, but it is a pity. Slightly worse is the degree of chromatic aberration in the outer reaches of the image. Again, for the price, this isn't bad, but it was disappointing to find how noticeable it is once you are aware of it. I don't regret the choice though.
