So here I go again.... I currently have an SLTA55 - with a Tamron 18 - 270 lens. Love it, but time for a new one as the SLTA55 has had some recent problems. I even sent it away to see if it could be fixed. Today spent some time at a camera store, just looking at different cameras. Looking at wanting to spend around $2500 max (but of course can be talked into more if needed). A little about me: - majority of time I am shooting landscape/vacation pictures - could be europe - could be...

My 450D has been sitting idle for a long while now but I wanna start taking some photos again. The mistake I did back when I choose my lens was to go with a zoom, the Tamron 18-270 instead of the 17-50. Don't wanna spend any more money on lenses so was thinking about getting the 430EX instead. 1. Will this remedy at least a little of the problems with low lights inside? 2. Will it help the lens focus when it at other times have a hard time? 3. Is it smarter to get the flash instead of a new...

I recently shot the NYC skyline and while I have not reviewed all of my photos to see if they are all as disappointing as the 2 attached, I am well disappointed. I am wondering if the quality is a limitation of the Body, Lens or simply the user. Any of these can be fixed I just need to know where to start. Any input will be greatly appreciated. > I just noticed that these copies were download to my phone in order to share with someone. They are the JPG files and I am hoping the RAW file is...

I am new to dslrs and am thinking of getting a superzoom with a used d90 or d300, I'm not sure whether to go with the Tamron 18-270, or the 18-250 or the Nikon 18-200. Any advice or suggestions of other lenses would be much appreciated.

I own Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 VC PZD lens together with Canon 70D, recently I have obtained for tests tele photo kit lens Canon EF-S 55-250 4-5.6 IS II. What puzzles me is that in max focal length of both lenses (Canon 250mm and Tamron 270mm) Canon has managed to get closer to the subject, actually a lot. If I am not missing some EF-S to EF conversion and all numbers written on those lenses are true (Canon 70D with 1.6 crop factor) I don't understand where is the problem. I have created...

Just bought a new 70D body.  My Sigma 105-500 telephoto will not keep an AF lock on subjects; it constantly "hunts" back and forth, in and out of focus, while shooting.  I have tried AI Servo, One Shot, and AI Focus to no avail.  I've played with the focus points, OS on and off, tripod and hand held.  The lens worked flawlessly with the 30D body, so I am at a lost.  Any suggestions? 70D works great with Tamron 18-270 and other lenses.

Hey all, After waiting way, way too long, I've just replaced my first ever SLR (Nikon D40 + 18-55 kit lens) with the new Canon 100D + Tamron 18-270 PZD. My usage is 100% travel: I'm on the road virtually all the time, so size and weight are of utmost importance. While I'm definitely still a novice, I do have some basic understanding of terminology + concepts - and the optical compromises required to get so much range into a lens as small as this Tamron. However, I wanted to run something by...

Hello...I'm new to DPREVIEW...I'm also new to photography as well as DSLR cameras...purchased a "new to me" Nikon D3000, middle of February and love it but I'm finding the lens 18-55 that came with the camera very limiting.  I'm looking at the Tamron 18-270 and the Sigma 18-250...I've read the review on both lens, but for the life of me not sure which would be best or if it is simply a case of pick one???  If anyone has used one or both and would consider passing along any thoughts I'd...

I have the Tamron lens mounted on Nikon D40.  I was taking pics today and seemingly out of nowhere, the lens stopped extending past 32mm.  It feels like it's stuck on something so I don't want to force it.  However, when I remove the lens from the camera, it seems to be fine.  Any ideas for fixing this at home or do I have to send it out for service?Thanks,Nicole

I currently use a Tamron 18-200 AF Aspherical XR DiII LD f:3.5-6.3 Macro lens purchased in 2005.  My question: is it worth the price to upgrade to the Tamron 18-270 lens?  Are there enough features/benefits to justify the upgrade and spending over $450 including rebate and trade-in?  I am a hobby photographer specializing in landscapes.
