Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenience uber alles "I wanted a one-lens-fits-all and based on the reviews I'd read this lens seemed like a good fit. I bought the last Nikon-mount instance of this lens at Henry's in all of Ontario during their boxing week sale and, with the Tamron rebate (ended 2011-12-31), it was a really good deal. But it's a good lens even at its regular price. Before buying I compared it on my D70 with the closest lens from Nikon, the 18-200, which at non-sale prices still costs about $100 more and has 75% of the zoom range. At 200mm, the sharpness of the pictures was close to indistinguishable at full magnification, so I figure for a bit less money and a bit more zoom range, you can't go wrong (the Tammie is a full 15X zoom - just divide 270 / 18 the Nikon ""only"" 11.1x). Any zoom lens is of course a compromise between convenience and image quality, and no lens will be right for everybody - a prime lens will almost always win for sharpness and usually for maximum aperture, but this Tamron zoom seems to round off the corners of its compromises. It takes good pictures, the autofocus is fast enough for what I use and the ""PZD"" (Piezo Drive) AF motor is indeed very quiet in operation. The lens is quite light weight and very convenient for what I will be using it for. The only downside of this lens is the ""zoom creep"" - at mid-zoom, if you point the lens up or down and move - as you often do when walking wearing the camera on a strap at your side - the weight of the lens causes it to zoom in or out, and you have to re-zoom. But you typically have to zoom to frame your photograph anyway after it's been at your side, so this is a non-issue. Where it might be an issue is where you're shooting up or down - you have to keep your hand on the lens all the time, just as we all did in the old days before we became spoiled by this new-fangle autofocus feature :-) This zoom creep is a problem with many longer zoom lenses (not the 18-55 or 18-105 kit lenses), not just this one, and is just due to gravity. There are rubber bands you can buy for a few bucks to slip over the barrel to stop this lens creep (one brand is called lensband search that big-name auction site for that name or for zoom creep) I haven't get got one in to see how it performs. There is also a zoom lock switch on the barrel to lock the lens at 18mm, but this is less convenient. A note of caution: do not confuse this lens with the non-PZD version (model B0003) which is just a bit older and less refined (and I believe a bit slower at autofocus), nor with the similar-looking but even older Tamron 18-250 which does not have Vibration Compensation (VC), a valuable feature for anyone who shoots hand-held. This 18-270 does feature VC, and it works well in my limited testing. Other than the zoom creep, which you can fix (if it's a problem for you) with a five dollar rubber band, this is a really good general-purpose lens. As with reviewer Kevin, I'd like to rate this 4.5 stars because of the zoom creep, but for me it's a 5."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatility over everything else "I just received my Tamron 18-270mm PZD for Nikon. I've played with this lens before from a friend's DSLR. I can tell you that this lens isn't for everyone. Depending on your photographic requirements, this lens can be either excellent or not very good. This superzoom lens is for you if: 1. You are not too demanding about image quality. The lens isn't the sharpest. Although color resolution is good, it isn't the equal of the Nikkor 18-200. It has some barrel distortion at wide angle and some pincushion distortion at telephoto. Some slight chromatic aberration can be observed at telephoto as well. 2. You are not too demanding about fast autofocus. Although the PZD autofocus motor is whisper silent, it isn't very fast. Its autofocus is excellent if you mainly take landscape photography and not action shots. 3. You don't want to carry any other lens with you on your trip. Carrying multiple lenses can be cumbersome and heavy if you have to move around on foot. Furthermore, changing lens can cause dust and other unwanted debris to enter the camera, sticking to the mirror or even worse, on the image sensor itself. This lens has an unmatched zoom range for all situations that you can use it as your only lens for the whole trip. In order to achieve this 15x zoom range, this lens is all about compromise in order to achieve versatility. This lens has zoom creep. If the lens is facing down, it will extend on its own weight, a zoom lock is there to partially solve this problem. If the lens is pointed up at full telephoto, the barrel will retract on its own weight as well. You'll have to live with these quirks in order to fully enjoy its unmatched versatility. As for myself, I am a travel landscape photographer and this superzoom lens is perfect for me. Judged on its own merits, this lens is excellent. Perfect 5-star, it isn't. But if I could, I would put 4 1/2 stars."
