REVIEW: Tamron Di II AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR LD Aspherical (IF) Macro
15 March 2013
Conclusion: The focal length range of this lens is ideal as a walkabout lens and it’s lightness and ease of use are commendable for that purpose. Add to that the advantage of not having to change lenses very often and the idea has a lot going for it especially if you are travelling/holidaying and need to keep things light. However, don’t be disappointed if you cannot produce stunning results at A3 because this lens will not make it.
Pros: Size and weight, Focal Range, Easy manual focus

Conclusion: I admit I am not a fan of megazoom lenses – they are, in my opinion, in contradiction with the very idea of using reflex cameras. Staying within one and the same company line-up, if you want to cover the focal range of the Tamron, tested here, it’s enough to buy two lenses with 17-50 f/2.8 and 55-200 f/4.0-5.6 parameters.
Cons: average quality of materials used in the housing,, lens very slow at 200 mm,, weak image quality at 200 mm and near maximum relative aperture for other focal lengths,, very high chromatic aberration at both ends of the range,, distinct distortion at 18 mm,, significant vignetting at 18 mm,, high astigmatism at 18 mm,, low autofocus accuracy.
