Probably the high resolution of your 60D is the key point of the problem. Too much megapixel?
My 18270 works very well with my 40D that has "only" 10mp....IMHO

Bye,
Felix.

So are you saying the camera has resolution that exceed the capability of this lens?

It's only an opinion...a thought! I'm not sure, but could be.
My lens on my brother's 50D produce softer images respect my 40D.

Bye,
Felix.

I actually may agree with you, though I never stopped to think it could be the high resolution of the camera.

I'm considering renting a Canon L 24-70 or 24-105 just to see if the IQ is that much better. Sometimes I'm a little disappointed in the results of my 18-270. But that could also be caused by my lack of PP skills and/or overall lack of capability as a photographer...:-(

Those shots are straight from the camera. Suggestions?

To be honest, I think those shots look fine for SOOC. A little and I mean very little processing would get those shots very very sharp. Keep in mind that this lens is a multi purpose Super zoom and it does have it's shortcomings, especially on the 270 end where it starts to get a little soft but again can be easily fixed with PP.

You cannot compare those L lenses with the Tamron. I think you need to work on your PP. When I first started posting in this thread, everybody told me my lens was off, too soft or whatever. Needless to say, I never sent it in but instead worked on my settings, composition and of course PP. Weeks later I was getting praise but I was also taking a lot more pictures instead of pixel peeping at every picture I was taking.... Practice, practice practice I say and don't be afraid to experiment with your settings until you find the comfort spot of this lens.

One of the best lens I bought...the 18270 will die on my 40D, like the 70-200L 2.8II will die on my MarkIV...

Bye,
Felix.

No it won't work. "Di II" means it is designed for crop body, APS-C sensor, no good for full frame like 5D.

i understand it's designed for crop bodies but does that mean it will not even mount to a 5d2?

I think it will physically mount on a 5D2. (Not all crop lenses will - some stick out too much in back or something like that, but a least some Tamrons can. Not really sure about this one.) But you will likely get severe vignetting because the lens's image circle is too small for the full-frame sensor.

Exactly,
I mounted the 18270 an my 1DIV. Physically works, but there's an orrible black circle on the frame...and the MarkIV is APSH that is smaller than FF.
