Product Details

Description:

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.

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...

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.

Versatile tool

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.

Great Lens

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
