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.

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

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...

You want a general-purpose zoom lens that covers most types of subjects., You'd like a lens that requires no readjustment when you fit polarisers and graduated filters., You're happy to shoot and process raw files to optimise imaging performance.

You need close focusing and macro capabilities., You want a lens for a camera with a 36 x 24 mm sensor., You need a lens with excellent flatness of field for architectural photography and copying.
