Tamron 18-270 PCD - VC noise
Mar 3, 2011

I was tempted to buy this superzoom to go with my primes for lazy days and got it yeasterday.

The IQ and AF seems quite fine for the type being, BUT the VC has this annoying summing noise as long as it's activated and about 2 seconds after release.

Anyone with the same kind of experience with Tamrons VC?

I used to have the Nikon 18-200 mm VR and never experienced the kind of noise and not even the cheap 18-55 VR on my D60 has this constant irritating noise.

I consider whether this is a flaw on my copy or just the way the VC on the Tammy is. If so, I'll return it and the the trusty Nikon 18-200 mm VR again, as this will definitely bother me to much!
