Tameron 18-270 VC lens
Lens is a little slow on auto focus but seem to do well with the limited use wwe had on ititial arrival. Motor can definitely be heard. Is very tight the the top end after about 200mm to the 270 mm range Was not as smooth as anticipated but still reaches out very well and does not drift. For the price it is worth the money as a consumer lens. ice metal barrel give it a little weight with a nice feel. This a a good aspect unless you are a small person with no arm strength. You will not lug this lens all day,but if you do, you are a "HULKSTER". More to follow as we further evalate this lens. Would probably purchased the Nikon 55-30VR if we did not want the 15x mag. Otherwise an excellent consumer piece of equipment. Scores it 7.9 out of 10 only for the neg we discussed above.
Excellent mid-range lens
This is one of the best all-round lenses out there. Very wide to strong zoom, it is the lens that is usually on my Canon 7D. Matter of fact, my husband and I both own this lens, and he uses it on his Canon T2i. Not a prime, and not super wide, so it isn't the sharpest lens in low light, but in bright sunlight it is tack sharp at f/3.5. Has a solid feel to it. VC is noisy when engaging and disengaging, and it sometimes has a problem focusing in low contrast (but many lenses share this problem). It is superb at a shallow depth of field, giving great bokeh. For the price, you can't beat this lens. If you want samples, most of the photos on pages 3-7 of my Flickr site were taken with this lens and a T2i: http://www.flickr.com/photos/horserider/
Drawbacks? I didn't see any--!
I’ve seen more than a few complaints for this Tamron 18-270mm VC B003 Model. But, I use this lens on both Fuji S5 Pro, and Nikon D80 body, and I see no reasons to complain. Complaints by others, namely the autofocus being slow, VC erratic at times, and some lack of performance, was a concern before I bought it. But with the discounted rebates, I bought one just to see for myself. I own both Nikon 18-200mm VR and this Tamron now, and I can say that there are not many sacrifices for this one over the Nikon. Under the scrutiny of microscopic pixel-level details for large shots needed for poster prints, optical performance may be an issue with this Tamron. Zooming into a portion of a large shot can show some chromatic aberration to some extent. Having said this though, I have no issue loving the result of anything that’s to be used for internet sharing of photos, even wall paper sized, and colors are brilliant. Focus and character is sharp all throughout the range, and very usable. I have found that the extra 70mm on the long range is very useful when you got to get right up to the subject, but can’t physically get any closer. The Tamron’s Vibration Compensation seems to work a bit better than the Nikon 18-200VR. The Tamron VC mechanism does make a noise for a split second as VC stabilizes the lens view, but once it’s on, it’s dead accurate and extremely stable. It’s really obvious when you look through the view-finder and compare with the VC switch on and off, while composing. I believe it when some say it compensates up to 4 stops. As many report, the zoom ring does have a stiff spot somewhere about 30-55mm range, but it’s nothing to be bothersome unless you want to shoot videos on a modern video-capable camera. For still shots, I can get it to just where I need it, and it’s not really an issue. Autofocus is a tad bit slower than Nikon 18-200VR and noisier, but I’ve found this to be a very slight difference, and unless you’re chasing something moving very rapidly, that isn’t an issue with me either. For action shots, I have a dedicated 80-200mm Nikon f2.8 AF-S, and for anything really important, I will lug around that 5lbs lens to get the shot. No ultra zoom with minimum aperture of f3.5~4 will come close anyway. But for everything casual, this lens will do the trick, and it really is useful for almost everything. It’s really a trade-off, Nikon is better at critical shots, though for a category of lens like this, neither 18-200VR nor Tamron 18-270 would compare to a more serious and limited use lens. Both of these lenses are meant to be all-around, single lens does all solution for travel and when equipment loads are an issue. As such, both are very competent and useful, and it is for those situations where traveling light and getting the shot is more critical than absolute image perfection for critical large print work. Nikon “feels” more expensive, and it is actually today, by about $250. Nikon also is slightly sharper and less distorted throughout the zoom ranges. Tamron however, bests the Nikon in range, and VC performance. Realistically, 95% of the time, I can be happy and constructive with either one, for their intended use. But all said and done, with the Tamron reduced to under $500 in the marketplace, there is a strong reason for getting this as an alternative. I still haven’t decided which to keep and which to give up. I love both the Nikon and Tamron…each having its forte.
Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC AF Lens for Canon Near Mint Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC AF Lens
I am using this lens on a BMCC (Black Magic Movie Camera). Although not as fast as other similar range "high end" lenses this lens produces superb video even at the highest resolution (2.5k - Ultra HD) and the large zoom range (15x) renders it suitable for a multitude of shooting situations. The image stabilizer works very well. Overall an excellent, large range zoom lens and excellent value.

THE STORY OF MY EXPERIMENTS WITH TAMRON 18--------------- 270
I read in reviews that this was one of the early zoom-lenses for dslrs with a wide range. I also read that atleast 50% of the consumers met with 'tight' zooming ring problem. Today, I received the lens and tested. As sincerely advertised by the previous owner, the zee ring is 'a bit' tight.I somehow'solved'it by retracing the winding from 70 bak to 18 and wounded it again fully upto 270 without any effort. This I was doing it for more than an hour. More than 70% of the trials, the rotation was smooth, but during 30% of the times, there appears to be a snag at 70. Anyway, it is not a serious problem. The only caution is that we SHOULD NOT apply force. In this connection, see a video in 'you tube' regarding 'LOOSENING OF ZOOM RING'. But for this hurdle, the lens is a super zoom lens.I am NOT an expert in this field, however.And in fact, it is the grandpa of the present modern lenses. I learn that now the PZD version of this lens is only available.I read that STIFFENING is sufferred by many ZOOM lenses and there must be ways in individual cases to overcome this mishap.Google and find a solution. I should accept that I am happy with this purchase. Nice construction. Pictures taken with this lens are fine. IS is fine. AF is OK.Only thing is that you have to play with it for 500 or more shots and tame it (or yourself) to render good shots with correct colour renditions. IT DOES. But you must study its behaviour well to get the best out of it. After all, we do the same thing with every lens - Trial and Error procedure.I am still trying, erring and then succeeding. Thanks!
