Tamron’s super-zoom series has seen several revamps over the years, but the latest iteration, the equivalent to a 24-450mm, is something of a pioneer. Read on to find out how well this class-leading new model performs.
If you’re shooting Nikon DX and are after a single-lens solution for shooting a wide range of subjects, the new Tamron 16-300mm superzoom is certainly worth a look. Our technicians have been busy putting it through its paces in the lab, so let's take a look at its DxOMark Lens Score and see how it rates compared to the other options on the market.
Sigma’s 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM zoom won praise for its balance of performance and convenience, but it looked bulky after rival Tamron introduced the diminutive 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD. Reducing the size, and weight while updating the optical construction to allow a new minimum focus distance of 35cm, the 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM is Sigma’s response. But has the redesign compromised the optical performance, or is it a valuable addition to the range? Read on to discover our verdict.
There is a phrase quoted quite often that when something sounds too good to be true you shouldn’t be too surprised when it isn’t. Nikon’s new AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f3.5-5.6G ED VR promises much, but can it deliver? The long list of letters in the name tell us that the lens is Auto Focus, that it is designed for Nikon’s DX sensors, the apertures are not fixed, the optics contain some “Extra-Low Dispersion” glass and that there is vibration reduction built in: Quite a list.
With the release of the new test results for the Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD for both the Canon mount and the Nikon mount, this could be a good opportunity to explore the DxOMark rankings to help you choose the best super-zoom for your APS-C camera.
