Tamron 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro For Nikon

No reviews
Verdict: The Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO , ( buy from Amazon ) is the world's first 18.8x zoom for APS -C sensor cameras. On a Canon DSLR it gives the full frame equivalent field of view of a 25.6-480mm zoom (on a Nikon or Sony DSLR it's 24-450mm due to the smaller 1.5x crop factor).

Tamron 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro For Nikon

3.6
Verdict: I'm surprised nobody has posted a review of this lens after more than 12 months of being listed, so I thought I'd go first.

Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro review

No reviews
Verdict: There was a time when bridge cameras were all the rage. This was the time when digital SLRs were a massive price, and digital compacts were not quite up to the job. It was also when the term ‘bridge camera' was invented, because these all-in-one, multi-purpose zoom-lens cameras were literally a...

Disappointed with Architecture and Landscape photos

5.0
Verdict: Buying an all-in-one lens IS A COMPROMISE....more so with this lens. When paired with a Canon 77d. On a recent trip to Europe, I encountered severe chromatic aberration (purple and green fringing) on many of my Architecture and Landscape photos when I tried to zoom out (16 mm) to get as much in the...

Better than I expected

2.0
Verdict: I have only used it once so far at a cross country off road motorcycle race and it performed better than expected. I bought this to replace my first version 18-200 Nikon. I wasn't expecting it to focus as fast as the Nikon (expecting to miss a lot of shots), but it wasn't far off.
Pros: Great image quality Faster than expected
Cons: Not as fast as focusing as Nikon (but not slow)

Tamron 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro For Nikon

5.0
Verdict: This 1 star is NOT a review of the product itself. This 1 star is because it says that the lens is for Sony Alpha cameras, but they fail to mention that it's not for the mirrorless Sony Alpha cameras, so please do take note of that.

Ideal for Travel

4.5

Very nice, go for it...

5.0
Verdict: Versatile lens, must say. Picture quality is good too. The best part is that you don't have to change the lens anymore. Amazed to see 16mm covers so much in frame. The macro is very good.

Better lens than I expected

4.0
Verdict: Nice lens. Seems well put together. NO LENS CREEP. That is a big plus. Is the lens perfect No. There's a little chromatic aberration, but that is fixable in software. Most of the issues are on the long end of the zoom. It's still a good, convenient lens with an impressive range. For me ...

Nice lens at very reasonable price

5.0
Verdict: I have replaced Nikon 18-105mm and 70-300mm lens with this one. So far I am getting amazing result. The lens is quite durable and robust. Usage is quite smooth though initial few days the rings were bit tight, I think which is normal. Highly recommended.

Tamron 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro For Nikon

5.0
Verdict: Bought this lens because I didn't wanted to keep changing my lens every now and then. The lens works decently at all focal length ranges and becomes especially handy when travelling somewhere. This lens is capable of taking macro shots but the amount of noise increases as higher ISOs.

Extra range at both ends is nice, no noticeable sacrifice in quality - if anything ...

3.0
Verdict: Got it to replace the earlier 18-270 model. Extra range at both ends is nice, no noticeable sacrifice in quality - if anything it's better throughout the range. Might be a bit smaller and lighter as well. Perfect travel lens.
