Tamron SP AF11-18mm F/4.5-5.6 Di-II LD Aspherical (IF) Review

  • Excerpt: The Tamron SP AF11-18mm F/4.5-5.6 Di-II LD Aspherical (IF) is a wideangle zoom lens designed for APS-C sensor cameras. That means just about everything except the Kodak full frame DSLRS and the Canon EOS 1D series DLSRs.

REVIEW: Tamron SP AF 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 DiII LD Aspherical (IF)

22 May 2008
  • Conclusion: This lens goes a long way in overcoming the biggest drawback of the cropped digital sensor, that of wide-angle coverage. The light weight, which possibly compromises build quality slightly, reduces the penalty incurred by carrying extra lenses.
  • Pros: Good control of distortions, Good contrast and colour rendition, Lightweight and comfortable in use.
  • Cons: Sloppy manual focus, Fall-off in quality towards the edges.

  • Excerpt: This 11-18mm lens from Tamron is pretty lightweight, with a predominantly plastic finish. The design is functional - the zoom ring at the rear has a chunky design, while the manual focus ring at the front is relatively large.

Zoomy szerokokątne do cyfrowych Nikonów - część 3, Tamron 11-18/4.5-5.6

1 July 2008
  • Summary: Od początku widać było, że zoom Tamrona trochę odstaje od przetestowanej już pary konkurentów. Ma minimalnie gorsze parametry katalogowe, niezbyt komfortowo się go obsługuje, no i ten autofokus... Pod względem jakości optycznej ani razu nie wybił się ponad 4 punkty.
