Excerpt: Since getting my Nikon D5100 three years ago, I've been wanting to replace the 18-55mm and 55-300mm lenses that came with it with one lens. Found this lens a couple of weeks ago and am very pleased. An excellent lense for the price!
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I love my new Tamron 18-270mm lens. It gives me the versatility to use it for whatever I am shooting. This morning I stepped out on my patio and there was a red shoulder hawk sitting a tree near my back fence. He was being "dive bombed" by smaller birds whose nest was close. At 270mm, I got several great shots. That is in contrast to being able to take pictures of my 11 month old granddaughter doing what she ought not. Same lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This the the second lens like this I purchased. I bought the original and after about 6 years of hard use and a few good falls it locked up on me. I was so in love with the wide and telephoto capability I just had to replace it. There is significant bbl distortion. And it's not the sharpest lens on the market but for the price it's a powerhouse. I can shoot indoors and walk outside and shoot hummingbirds at the feeder.
Excerpt: I bought this for an upcoming trip to Alaska. I like the fact that it is short in length and very lightweight. The wde angle in mid-range is excellent and the Max zoom is perfectly fine if you are shooting with some decent light. Excellent lens choice if you don,t want to drag along 2-3 lenses.
Excerpt: The standard lens that Nikon includes with their DSLRs is Ok but I wanted a zoom lens to get even better shots. Nikon has a huge selection of excellent quality zoom lens but their prices made my head spin. Last year I spent some time with my brother-in-law and was very impressed with the quality of his Tamron 18-270 zoom lens. I highly recommend this lens for people who, like me want a great lens at a great price.
Excerpt: This lens integrated very easily with my Canon Rebel T1i. The image quality appears as good as my canon lenses which came with the camera. Being able to go from wide to zoom without changing lenses is the reason I got this lens and I'm glad I did. The only downside I notice is that the PZD is a little noisy.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
