19 December 2013
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...
Excerpt: The VC is not functioning properly. If it is on, at slow shutter speed it blurs the picture. I had to turn it off if the shutter speed was faster 1/13. I had 3 copies of the lens, 2 of them were really soft. The one that was actually "sharp" had the AF that dies after few weeks of light use..
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Long range
Cons: No Increase In Performance, Poor AF, Poor Clarity, Poor VC
Excerpt: I use this lens as the lense usually attached to my camera. It has a very large zoom range which makes it nice for a variety of situations. The focus motor is quiet and for the focal range, its nicely compact and easy to store.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
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.
Summary: This is wonderful lens in All in one category, Very Silent AF motor, Fast AF, i mean fast in low light conditions also. Sharp and clear images, also i loved the VC of this lens. Perfect lens for my kinds beginner. The price for this lens is reduced internationally..
