This zoom lens covers the greatest range of any interchangeable lens in digital SLR photography. With a lens this well built you would expect it to be heavy but the Tamron 18-250mm is remarkably compact, lightweight and gives you a nice solid feel in your hands.
If you don’t want to carry a quiver full of lenses with you, this might be the right lens. It does everything: sports, nature, and close-ups. It’s the perfect all-in-one lens for snapshots. Any zoom lens is a compromise, especially this one. I knew before I bought it, so I’m quite happy with its performance.
The Tamron 18-250mm is a great walk around lens, for better performance you should choose another lens.
