TAMRON 18-270MM VC DI-II PZD NIKON MT
"I wanted an all around lens for my Nikon D5100. I would consider myself an advanced general user.
I did my internet studying and narrowed my options down to the Sigma 18-250 or the Tamran 18-270. The Nikon 18-200 was just too much extra money... even used.
I went in to Henry's and tried both lens in a D5100. The biggest difference I noticed was how fast and reasonably accurate the AF was on the Tamran. The Sigma would focus in and out full range on certain subjects and then often would lock into an unfocused position.
No problem with the Tamran. Fast..accurate.
I guess my only advice to anybody is to bring in your camera and try various lens before you buy.
The Sigma was $399+.
The Tamran was $499 and then dropped to $369 the next day.. sale price.
I promptly went in to Henry's and cancelled my order for the Sigma (stock was to ship in from another store) and got the Tamran.
The Piezo drive seems to make a nice difference.
Time will tell as for the overall build quality."
