It's OK

Thea, Amazon

  • 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!

Tampaite, Amazon

  • 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...

Could have been better

  • Summary: decent lense not really useful for pro's.
  • Pros: Wide Range to zoom,makes my 70-300mm almost obsolete. Good Quality lense
  • Cons: The lense expands when held downwards,at least mine does. Sometimes it has a gard time to focus especially in low light.

good multi-purpose but take a tripod

HelenaJ, WEX

  • 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.
  • 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.

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)...
  • Pros: Cost, Weight, Zoom range
  • Cons: Noisy autofocus, Overexposure problems, Quality not up to Nikon

Finally the "all in one lens?" YES, BUT....

Naftade, Amazon

  • Summary: ....Versatility never comes without cost: GENERAL + First impression when mounted to my t2i was "wow". I could hardly believe how small this thing really is considering it's zoom range! It's also very light (only a tiny little bit heavier than a Tamron 17-50 2.8!

Versatile and light but not perfect IQ or AF.

Nick Gray, Amazon
5 August 2011
  • Summary: I use this lens on an Eos 7D and bought it having previously owned a Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC HSM and a Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and quickly become sick and tired of both. The first thing I will say is that I will be sticking with the Tamron as a convenient travel lens.

Tamron vs Nikon

Moonshine, Amazon
4 August 2011
  • Summary: I have a Nikon D7100 and had a 16-85mm Nikon lens and wanted more reach and this lens is no way as sharp as the Nikon I took 200 images and colour saturation and sharpness just isn't up to Nikon but still okay but I look for excellence in my pictures then again its a travel lens all in one.

good results for general travel photography

Apple, Amazon

  • Summary: Versatile product, good results for general travel photography. However, no good on my Cannon 5 D as it will not give full frame coverage.
