Superzooms have always been a compromise, basically trading their extraordinary focal range and corresponding versatility against reduced image quality and higher maximum F/numbers. With the Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro, that summary still holds, so it's not a game-changer.

    Tremendous all-in-one versatility, Class leading 18.8x zoom ratio, 24mm equivalent wide-angle, Sharp at shorter focal lengths, Swift and quiet PZD autofocus, Effective VC image stabilization, Handy close focusing capability, Improved, weather-resistant build, Compact and light, considering the focal...

    Reduced sharpness at longer focal lengths, especially at the edges, Slow maximum apertures, Autofocus less reliable towards long end of the zoom, Plentiful chromatic aberration, prodigious at 200-300mm, Strong distortion throughout, both barrel and pincushion, 'Focus breathing' reduces focal length...

One of Tamron's newest all-in-one lenses, the 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro features the most versatile zoom range of an all-in-one, plus macro capabilities, in a compact package. This lens is also much more affordable than other lenses with comparable features and range.

  • +

    Compact lens with an incredible zoom range, Rubber rings make focus and zoom easy to control, Touch AF and VC switches don't changed by accident, Easy to read numbers on the lens, Very good image quality

  • -

    Not as sharp as some available all-in-one lenses, VC still left some of our handheld image soft/blurry

The Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD is the World's first 18.8X zoom lens for APS-C sized digital SLR cameras with an impressive 16-300mm zoom range, this gives the equivalent of 24.8mm wide-angle zooming to 465mm.

Before this lens I had the Nikon 55-200mm lens and the 18-55mm lens for my D3200. Those are both decent lenses especially for the prices, but each has its issues. The 18-55 sucks for getting detailed pictures.

    Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

    Heavy, Poor in Low Light

I am comparing this to a Canon 15-85mm lens and a Canon f4.0L 70-200mm lens. Was looking for a single lens alternative. Was this review helpful? |

    Light, compact, f/3.5, 300mm

    Not sharp even in center at any focal length or f stop. Serious color problems at edges. Poor focus in low light.

Bought this to replace a Nikon 18-200 zoom. Better range and relatively accurate at both ends with minimal darkening around the edges. Acceptable softness and chromatic abberation for this type of lens. Purchased mainly as an all in one lens for travel with a D7100.

    Acceptible Distortion, Great price, Great Range, Light Weight

    Gripfeel Could Be Better

7 July 2015

As much as I wanted to like this lens I had to return it. The convenience of having a wide angle lens with this zoom capability was just too good to be true. I'm not sure if its was a faulty lens but there were major problems with image quality at most focal lengths on a D7100 and D3200.
