great lens, nice range for action shots
11 January 2014
Summary: I bought this lens to make it easier for the wife to get pics at our kids sporting events, I do not know the outcome of indoor shots yet,i was drawn in by the 18/270 range, I have several lenses that cover these ranges but decided to get the all inclusive and see what happens, my wife loves the idea that one lens covers the whole indoor volleyball situation without changing lenses, so far at the house all pics have been very good, tough to compare to a 135mm f2.0 lens...
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: I used this lens majority of the time for sport action purpose with my Sony A77. The lens worked well with the single frame shot drive. However, the performance is slightly degraded with continuous drive mode. Pictures blurringness is very obvious. Otherwise, this would be a great all in one lens to carry to all event.
Summary: Great general purpose lense...much better than the stock Alpha lense! My only complaint is that I cannot easily find 62mm filters at the local electronic stores: I'm very thankful that Beach Camera included the UV filter with the purchase!
Pros: Excellent zoom range, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Fast And Quiet Focusing, Lightweight
Summary: I sold my 6 years old Nikon 18-200 lens due to dislike its crepping. Been watching this Tamron 18-270 PZD for it size, got this at excellent price, not much test up to now, but seems working good, therefore I gave a 4 star, perhaps will revise for 5 after really using it.
