What is a 18-270mm lens good for?

The Tamron 18-270mm is a perfect lens for travel photography and for the photographer-on-the-go who does not want to spend time constantly switching lenses or hauling large amounts of gear. In a single lens, you have the capability of shooting everything from wide angle, to 50mm, to a pretty substantial zoom.

What is Tamron Piezo Drive?

The Tamron Piezo Drive is what gives the Tamron 18-270mm lens its signature autofocus abilities. Fast, silent, and precise, the Piezo Drive functions because of a basic physics principle known as the standing wave (it’s essentially a wave that, instead of propagating, stays in one place).

When did The Tamron 18-270mm F / 6.3 VC PZD come out?

Tamron’s 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD was announced in December 2010, as a successor to the well-regarded AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO that we reviewed in December 2008.

What is the focal range of the Tamron 18-270mm?

The focal range of the Tamron AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD is extremely broad. It’s possible to encompass a large amount of photographic styles when using a lens such as this. At 18mm, the field of view is 75°, which is the same as that of a 27mm lens on a 35mm full-frame camera.

Which is image stabiliser does Tamron AF 18-270mm use?

VC is Tamron’s version of an image stabiliser. It works very well in the Tamron AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens. It’s an active type that will visibly steady the shot in the lens for you to see. It does that for around a second after you’ve locked focus before resetting.

Is the Tamron 18-270mm a Pentax fit lens?

Tamron doesn’t make a Pentax-fit model, but the recently-announced Pentax smc DA 18-270mm F3.5-6.3 ED SDM is in all probability essentially the same lens, again without the VC module. The Tamron 18-270mm’s closest competitor is the Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-5.6 DC Macro OS HSM, a very similarly spec’ed lens that we reviewed recently.
