for travel. It is designed for the APS-C sensor. It also works slick for video. You can check out some of the images from the lens in my gallery here. Whenever I need to travel in a compact fashion, it is the lens on the a77. Keep in mind that I also have the following lenses:

Steve - I find that the 18-270 Tamron is not good for zooming in video. Not smooth at all.

Is that your experience as well?
