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.

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

 

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

Great Buy!

 

I am glad I listened to an experienced photographer, he saved me a bunch of money by recommending this Tamron 18-270mm lens for my Nikon D5100. I returned some locally purchased lenses keeping my kit lens as a backup. I then purchased a Tamron Macro...

Swiss Army Knife Lens takes the place of having two or three lenses for the cost of one Nikkor lens

None that I have found
