Tamron's new 18mm-270mm raises the bar for the all-in-one lens segment in many areas

  • Excerpt: Tamron's Di II type lenses are designed for APS-C sized digital cameras so translating the 18mm-270 mm (15X zoom) into a more understandable measurement it zooms from 28mm to an amazing 419mm equivalent in 35mm film camera terms. Face it, most people who step up from the point-and-shoot type of digital cameras aren't interested in carrying around 2 or 3, or more, lenses and constantly changing back and forth between them.

Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II LD [IF] Asph. VC macro - Review / Lab Test Report

  • Conclusion: Just like the rest of its (extreme zoom range) lens species the Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di LD Aspherical [IF] VC macro (sorry, I had to repeat that again ...) tries to provide it all, but the continuously higher degree of generalization rather than specialization has a price - image quality. The lens had a bit of a hard time to deliver a good image quality on a high resolution DSLR.

  • Summary: Sokféle fotós van a világon. Van, aki csak a fixekre esküszik, s tele van a fotóstáskája az összes lehetőséghez különféle objektívekkel. Van, aki megpróbálja racionalizálni a lehetőségeket és próbál néhány jobb, fényerős zoommal megoldást keresni. Vannak azonban olyanok, akik nem azért vásároltak DSLR-t, hogy telepakoljanak objektívekkel egy óriási válltáskát vagy hátizsákot. Ők nagy zoomos optikákban gondolkoznak, lehetőleg minél kevesebben.

  • Conclusion: Bu objektif geniş bir aralıkta makul bir kalite ile fotoğraf çekmenizi sağlarken titreşim engelleme özelliği de sunuyor. Bu ay iki objektifin birden ayın ürünü olması sizi şaşıtmasın. Zira aynı ürün grubunda olmalarına rağmen bu iki ürün arasında dağlar kadar fark var. 18-270 mm ile 15x gibi rekor bir zum oranına sahip olan Tamron'un bu objektifi, şaşırtıcı özelliklere sahip. "15x'in neresi rekor, 20x hatta üzeri zum yapabilen dijital fotoğraf makineleri var" demeyin.
  • Pros: +, Etkileyici fokal uzunluk, +, Etkin imaj sabitleme, +, Tatminkâr kalite
