Summary: The Tamron 18-270 is a very nice all-in-one lens. So if you are wanting a single lens to do pretty much everything and avoid switching lenses or having to carry multiples around, this is a good choice.

Summary: A very compact, wide-range zoom for use as a 'one-size-fits-all' lens. No need to waste time changing lenses when this one has such a good zoom range!Ideal for situations where a quick reaction is needed to 'snap' action scenes (sports, air displays, racing etc.).

Pros: All This From One Lens, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Simple Controls

Pros: Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Vibration Control System
