First things first; the AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO undoubtedly represents an impressive feat of optical engineering, and Tamron has to be applauded for producing a superzoom that has significantly longer telephoto reach than its direct competitors without further...
Remarkable 15x focal length range, Impressive image quality in the normal to short telephoto range, Excellent resistance to flare, Effective vibration correction system, at least 3 stops benefit, Reasonably compact despite the long telephoto range
Slow and occasionally indecisive autofocus, Geometric distortion across much of the zoom range, Significant chromatic aberration at wideangle and telephoto (especially 270mm), Macro performance rather compromised (very soft at F6.3, focus shifts on stopping down), Uneven zoom action, zoom creep when...
Tamron's Di II type lenses are designed for APS-C sized digital cameras so translating the 18mm-270 mm (15X zoom) into a more understandable measurement it zooms from 28mm to an amazing 419mm equivalent in 35mm film camera terms.
Just like the rest of its (extreme zoom range) lens species the Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di LD Aspherical [IF] VC macro (sorry, I had to repeat that again ...) tries to provide it all, but the continuously higher degree of generalization rather than specialization has a price - image quality.

I love this little lens and it gave me a little more reach than my 55-200mm lens. I do wish that I would have gotten a little more range than the 270mm but for the product there is no complaints from me.

This is a discontinued item, replaced by the Piezo Drive version. Might be better to get the newer one, but you might find this at such a discount that it's worth it to get the older version.
When you weigh its quality and versatility against its cost, it's probably the best single lens the average hobbyist could get. When I bought mine, there was a giant mail-in rebate for it.
Cons have been mentioned by others: 1) It's sticky along the middle of the zoom range; 2) it's not fast; 3) it doesn't focus well at times; and 4) the lens creeps down sometimes when pointed down. Given the versatility and price, though, I tend to discount these.
For a variable aperture zoom lens this is a great lens to have. If your expectations are not out of this world with respect to image quality you will be pleased with this lens. I'm not knocking it, I just want you to be realistic about the limitations of a lens without a nice wide aperture to let...
Great product but beware item is grey market - good value for the money but seller (Clickonadeal = Tristate Camera) should have disclosed this is NOT covered by the manufacturer warranty nor gives right to manufacturer discount coupon. Per law, seller should have disclosed this.
I bought this lens to use on a recent upgrade to a T2i body. It is used primarily as a walkabout, all purpose lens that eliminates the need to change lenses. I had borrowed my brother-in-law's lens this summer, and was quite satisfied with the results obtained on a 'try it', before you 'buy it',...
Quite versitile, with a very wide focal range. On an APS-c 1.6 crop camera, this 18-270mm lens has a range of 28mm to 432mm !, A built in lock button to prevent 'barrel creep' when the lens is transported on the camera, or when the camera is slung over the shoulder.
Slightly larger and heavier, than most regular 'kit' lenses, this lens will add additional bulk to your DSLR camera., AF will do a lot of hunting and searching in low light conditions, so you may have to switch to manual focus to achieve satisfactory results.
May not be excellent one, but a very Good product to meet your single lens needs / travel purpose. For sure, It's value for money.
A great travel lens maybe, but with just too many compromises. PROS: Lightweight with 18-270 focal lengths make impressive reading for those seeking a single lens for all purposes. Image stabilisation is sound and for its price the focussing is pretty quiet and speedy enough CONS: I bought this with...
I have had this on my wishlist for ages. Eventually, after reading many reviews, I have purchased this lens. I am delighted with this purchase. It is my second Tamron lens. (I have a 70-300 AF) which is one of the lenses to which I refer below: On a recent long trip I carried 3 lenses and was...
I recently received this Tamron 18-275mm lens, already gave it a test in various conditions and found the versatility and quality of the images where of a high quality. I already have the 55-300mm Nikon lens, although this is very good but I was always having to change lenses depending on the...
Exactly what i wanted, a all around lens and brilliant image quality, i had the nikon 55-200 but this one is another level, love it.
