“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.”-Tamron
“Defining compositional freedom the 18-270mm Di-II VC’s incredible 15x zoom range provides a 35mm picture angle equivalency of 28mm to 419mm, with image fidelity assured by advanced optical design featuring LD glass and aspherical optics, working in concert to render crisp, colorful and faithful images.”-Tamron
I love taking photos. If you could see my collection of photos of Bug alone you would understand that I am somewhat camera happy :) But I just love capturing memories of my family. I have a Canon camera but up until now I haven’t loved the lens I was using. That was until I received the Tamron 18-270mm all-in-one zoom lens to review.
Right off I fell in love with the zoom range. From 18 mm to 270 mm, that is a huge zoom range and I have been enjoying it so much. Now I don’t have to run over to where Bug is playing to get the adorable shot, I can simply zoom in and snap a great photo. And since it has such a wide zoom range I don’t have to switch lenses, I really love that it is all-in-one.
I have also really been enjoying the VC image stabilization as now I am not capturing a bunch of blurry action photos of my very active little Bug. Before I had this lens I had a problem with blurry pictures often, so I find this so refreshing to have a lens with the VC technology.
“Tamron’s Unique State-of-the-Art In-Lens Image Stabilization System
Handheld camera shake is the leading cause of blurry and unsharp pictures. Several leading companies now make lenses with built-in optical image-stabilization systems that sense the amplitude and direction of the shake and compensate by moving optical groups within the lens. Tamron’s exclusive new Vibration Compensation (VC) system that’s built into the Tamron AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical (IF) Macro and the Tamron AF18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC LD Aspherical (IF) Macro lenses performs a similar function, but it executes it much more effectively due to its innovative breakthrough design.“-Tamron I have been using this lens for about 3 weeks now and I am really enjoying this lens and highly recommend it to someone looking for a lens with a wide zoom range. The quality of the pictures it takes are excellent and I have been able to get some absolutely beautiful shots of my family with this lens.
