Tamron's next generation 18-270mm, the world's lightest, smallest 15x zoom optimized for use on APS-C- DSLRs, continues the pursuit of the ideal all-in one zoom lens. Combining prior award-winning achievements with new engineering breakthroughs yielded the remarkable 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Piezo Drive). Special piezoelectric technology now delivers faster, quieter precision autofocusing. Tamron's exclusive tri-axial VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization, featuring three pairs of driving coils and low-function ball bearings placed around the VC optical group, combats camera shake-related image blur. It's Tamron VC that allows handheld shooting at as many as four shutter speeds slower than otherwise possible with a dramatically stable viewfinder experience. Compactness and light weight are preserved, thanks in part to the VC mechanism's newly-developed moving coil mechanism.

Noisy VR - unacceptable for video
The advantage of an all in one super zoom like this is being able to use it for wide variety of situations on your DSLR. I have tried 3 different superzooms on my Nikon D5100 (the predecessor of this model the Tamron 18-270mm Di II VC LD, the Sigma 18-250mm Macro OS HSM and this one). Unfortunately the VR on this model makes a noise that is very audible and distracting. It is a constant whirring...

The advantage of an all in one super zoom like this is being able to use it for wide variety of situations on your DSLR. I have tried 3 different superzooms on my Nikon D5100 (the predecessor of this model the Tamron 18-270mm Di II VC LD, the Sigma 18-250mm Macro OS HSM and this one). Unfortunately the VR on this model makes a noise that is very audible and distracting. It is a constant whirring sound and you could probably learn to ignore it if you aren't planning to use it to shoot any videos(without an external microphone). But if you are planning on shooting any videos without having to lug around a directional microphone this lens is not for you. This is all the more annoying because this noise is not present in the older model! It is a pity because the autofocus on this model is much better than its predecessor and seems to be on par with the Sigma. Also the zoom action is fairly smooth compared to the older Tamron and the VC is better than the Sigma. But all of these are unfortunately lost in the noise. Seems like I will have to try the Nikon 18-300mm which is unfortunately almost twice the weight and price.

Exactly what I needed
I am taking pictures for my nieces wedding and needed to be able to take various shots without having to change lenses to go from close-up to far away. This is going to do the exact job I purchased it to do.

This replaces all my lens for landscape photography. Easy to use and lighter than 3 or 4 lens I used to carry.

Reasonable price for a great lens
It coves some lenses that you used to carry.

I bought the lens for my Nikon 90 to replace two others - 18-135mm zoom and a 55-200mm zoom in order to replace two lenses with one and at the same time to get the additional lens length. I used the lens in a club photoshoot of the city of Dallas and it m
