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.

  • Excerpt: Navnet er Tamron AF18-270mm/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) Macro, og bag dette utrolig lange navn gemmer sig et objektiv med en brændvidde der dækker 18-270mm – hvilket er intet mindre end imponerende, og faktisk et af de objektiver med kraftigst zoom (Der svarer til 15x) på markedet i øjeblikket.
