Tamron 18-250?

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Bill Beasley, Jul 24, 2007.

  1. Anyone have experience with the Tamron 18-250? I was considering the 18-200, But the reviews seem to favor the 18-250 for quality albeit a higher price. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    they favor the Tamron over the Nikon ?
    I would take that with a grain of salt
  3. Not the Nikon, the lenses I'm looking at are both Tamrons.

    Most reviews seem to find the 18-250 superior, tis the one to go for now.

    I have heard nothing but positive response from users of the new lens in Nikon, Canon and KM/Sony mounts.
  8. Thanks very much for the replies, I think I'm gonna pull the trigger. I have a couple of trips coming up.

    most people are saying that it is optically superior to the 18-200VR, but focuses very slow and doesn't have VR.
