A Review of the Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD Lens

Any photographer who walks long distances or spends hours on their feet with their equipment knows that every last ounce matters. And so, the idea of a single lens that can cover just about every focal length is quite intriguing. Tamron's 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD makes that promise, and this excellent video review takes a look at it and the image quality and performance you can expect from it in usage.

Coming to you from Stefan Malloch, this awesome video review takes a look at the Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD lens. The 18-300mm is an exceptionally versatile lens, even by superzoom standards, offering a 16.6x zoom range comapred to the more standard 10x range for such lenses. This gives it an equivalent focal length range of 27-450mm, capable of tackling just about anything you can throw at it, save for very wide focal lengths. Add in vibration compensation and a very affordable price, and it looks quite enticing. That being said, you should not expect extreme image quality from a lens with such a large focal length range; nonetheless, it is impressive what Tamron has accomplished. Check out the video above for Malloch's full thoughts on the lens.
