The 18-250mm’s compact size is likely to give it particular appeal for those who want an easy-to-carry all-purpose lens. However, in the middle of 2008 Tamron brought out an 18-270mm lens with in-built vibration compensation, which is an all-round better zoom (albeit a costlier one). This 18-250mm is simply a smaller, lighter and more affordable option.
