Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD

 

Tamron's 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD was announced in December 2010, as a successor to the well-regarded AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO that we reviewed in December 2008. Compared to the previous version, its main...

Very useful 15x zoom range ; Good image quality at wideangle ; Quiet autofocus ; Reasonably effective image stabilization ; Compact and lightweight

Rather soft at telephoto, especially wide open ; Strong distortion across most of the range ; Chromatic aberration at each end of the zoom (most pronounced at telephoto) ; Slower autofocus than its peers

The Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD is a perfectly competent superzoom that squeezes a huge focal length range into a compact package. Autofocus is slower than its competitors, however, and image quality is weak at the the telephoto end.

At review time, the Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC Lens holds the world record for longest focal length range in all camera mounts it supports including Canon's APS-C mount.The 15x focal length range is, without a doubt, very impressive. It is...

Tamron 18~200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III VC E-Mount Lens

 

The NEX 7 I have not seen before, but apart from one and a half little niggles, I am in love with this little beastie; it takes fantastic shots. And the niggle and a bit? The viewfinder as it brings up my left eye dominant issue is the big one. The...

Hands-on Report: Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens review

 

Tamron's 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens is compact and versatile, but not without compromises

Massive focal length ; Decent build and appearance ; Fast AF

Average image quality ; Issues with vibration compensation ; Slight issue with lens creep

Given the $649 cost, one could make an argument that the Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD is something of a value, especially when its massive focal length is factored in. Offering photographers several lenses in one, and a compact one at that,...

Lens Test: Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC AF

 

With the broadest zoom range (15X) of any interchangeable lens for DSLRs, this 28-419mm equivalent superzoom ($600, street) also packs a Vibration Compensation system for sharp handheld shooting at long focal lengths or slow shutter speeds

Tamron AF18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD; Sometimes One Size Does Fit All

 

Expert review by:

Tamron AF18-270mm f/3.5-f/6.3 Di II VC

 

If you're in the market for a wide-angle to telephoto lens, the Tamron 18-270mm is a great lens to consider amongst the big brand offerings.

Incredible zoom range ; Very sharp towards the wider end (35-100mm) ; Effective image stabilisation

Lens creep is quite pronounced ; Heavy

Conclusion While this lens won't necessarily appeal to professionals or serious amateurs because of its smaller apertures and superzoom tag, it's an ideal purchase for someone who is just getting started with a dSLR and who is looking for the...

This compact zoom lens is an excellent tool for travel photographers, who can now carry a single all-in-one zoom lens instead of the multiple lenses that would normally be needed to cover this range of focal lengths. Designed for the popular APS-C...
