REVIEW—TAMRON 18–270mm DiII VC lens]

 

This 15X zoom lens is for cameras with APS-C sensors, so its film-equivalent focal length is 27–405mm. Maximum aperture goes from f3.5 to 6.3. Used at sensible apertures auto-focus is quick and accurate. Contracted to its shortest length it measures...

The sheer convenience of walking around with this lens is a joy. To be able to shoot reasonably wide or dramatically tele with everything in between is a boon. And generally speaking, particularly in the mid range, the results are pleasing. Tamron has...

Ultimate sharpness and contrast are not the Tamron’s strong points

Used sensibly this is a good lens and a pleasure to use. We set the Nikon D300 to aperture priority at f8 to keep the lens near its sweet spot. That meant we had to crank up the ISO to 1250 to keep the shutter speed high. We would never use this lens...

REVIEW: Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III VC NEX Lens

Excellent sharpness at shorter focal lengths; Performance holds up reasonably well at telephoto focal lengths; Metal finish and lens mount; 11.1x zoom range; Internal focus

High CA levels at 200mm; Flare when shooting into the light

Those looking for a convenient lens that covers a wide range of focal lengths for their Sony NEX camera should be pleased with the performance from this Tamron optic. Sharpness levels are good for a lens of this type and with a price set almost £100...

Excellent value for money, and saves me weight.

 

The 18-200mm lens met exactly my expectations. I can now carry around a single lens on my Nikon for most work, rather than two or three. I'll still use my Tokina 11mm for extreme wide-angle, an extreme telephoto and a big aperture prime lens), but the...
