A truly super zoom Tamron’s 18-270mm f/3.5- 6.3 Di II VC PZD – the only lens you’ll ever need? shot at 18mm
Photography should be fun and spontaneous but if you’re heading out for a day’s shooting, you may be tempted to cram all your kit and the kitchen sink into your bag to make sure you don’t miss a shot. Wide-angle, telezoom, macro – the weight soon adds up! But what if there was a lens that did it all – capturing wide angles, close-ups of subjects far away and everything in between? Luckily, that ‘what if’ is now a reality in the sleek shape of the Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD. Vast focal range This lens is a real groundbreaker for a number of reasons. It covers such a vast focal range, eradicating the need to pack several lenses in your kitbag which will not only slow you down as you swap optics, potentially missing the moment, but will no doubt give you back ache as well! Not only that, the Tamron is also packed with some cutting- edge technology. You probably noticed the PZD letters in the lens’ title? They stand for Piezo Ultrasonic Drive, which is at the heart of the lens’ system. As well as allowing the lens to be more compact, this technology also brings faster and quieter focusing too. The VC letters indicate that Tamron’s own Vibration Compensation technology is built in. This helps stabilise the lens from movement during an exposure, meaning less of the dreaded camera shake, resulting in sharper images. Lastly, all this focal length and amazing technology is packed into a lens that weighs just 450g! Go super long The build quality of this lens is first class and, when used on APS-C cameras, the Tamron gives an effective focal length in excess of 400mm. Equivalent to27-405mmonNikons and28-430mm on Canons, this puts it well into the realm of wildlife and sports photography that was previously only attainable with pricey optics costing double the price of the Tamron 18-270mm. Available for Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras, the Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD retails from around £350.
