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 PZD AF Review

 

As you can see in the alternatives section, the manufacturers have realized that they can't afford to ignore the travel zoom market, and there is plenty of choice for all camera brands. Tamron leads the pack with reach, though not by much;

Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical IF Macro AF Review

 

As the Tamron 18-270mm and the ''name-brand'' competition are all floating around the same price point, the decision of whether to buy this lens or a Nikon / Canon equivalent comes down to how badly you need the extra 70mm of distance. Image quality is...

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...
