Anyone has this problem with VC on PZD version:

when pressing shutter (half) I see lens "shaking" in viewfinder when VC in turning ON. It lasts maybe a half of second just till VC is on/off, but my viewing field also moves during that operation. When I release shutter and wait for a few seconds till VC is turning OFF, then I see shaking again. It does not affect on picture quality, but It's annoying on viewfinder because every time i press shutter button I see that shaking and picture moving.

I get the "moving" but not the "shaking". The moving is only noticeable at close distances. That is, the image shifts very slightly when VC goes on, and when it goes off, but I only see if if I am really looking for it, and the subject is maybe a few feet away or less.

You're right, I also see "moving", image shifts up/down when VC is turning on/off.

But, in my case, it's is always visible, when I zoom to 270, Image shifts up for a half of the screen...

1/2 a screen, that sounded like a broken VC to me. Better send it back for a check up.

Just helped a friend to by the PZD (Nikon) version. it is much much lighter than our version. Felt that the focusing (indoors inside the shop, seems to be faster) but the VC like no improvement.

On zooming out, I could see the zebra strip and circuit boards inside the lens ! So much for moisture, corrosion and dust protection. Cost about US$628 with 6 years warranty.

Can't say about the pics quality as I am not going be using it.

Enjoy your new toy and nice meeting you here.

I had loaned the lens & my old 350D to my gf who is starting out to enjoy this hobby.

Is this a good price for this lens?
http://www.mcbaincamer​a.com …ail.php?mcbain_​id=2005839 (external link)

At this price. I'd like to use it as my walk-about or driving (work) companion lens. And my 70-200mm is a little too bulky and hard to hide from my co-workers. ;)

[EDIT]. Please ignore my post. It turned out that the sale was on the non-PZD. It was a discontinued product.

My apologies.

Hi Guys!

I would like to say Thank you for your pictures and the lot of information about this lens. I read all the 1720 comment and I bought a new version of Tamron 18-270 today. As I see this topic a bit empty in these days, but I would like to show my first picture with this lens. Please write your opinions about this picture.
I am a beginner, the quality of my pictures not a big deal, I know. Please teach me! :) :D
I love the HDR so I applied this technique on this image too.

Yep, same here - I just assumed it was a quirk of the VC technology - it doesn't seem to cause any problems.

I bought this lens 2 years back to use on occasions when I could only take one body and lens combo with me - such as on pike fishing trips. You might find a good landscape needing captured, or you might find red throated divers asking to be snapped. What to take...? The pike gear fills a wheelbarrow and there is barely room for a compact camera! So, the Tamron 18-270 was about the best contender out there really.

I've had a few decent shots with it. I'd be lying if I said I never missed having a good Canon lens on for some of the opportunities, but then I don't have a Canon lens that goes from 18 to 270 mm.

Here are a few pike fishing photos (on 7D)...

Those are some good shots. I could see them in a fishing magazine. Thanks for sharing.

I only have the PZD (not Macro) version of this lens, but considering this particular shot was taken as I'd thrown the ball up with one hand and whipped the camera into position and snapped away, I'd say I think I have my money's worth in this lens... *grin*

This was from my first foray out and about with the new 60D and Tamron 18-270 - sitting on a bench in the shade, throwing bits of cake in the air and snapping away... the seagulls are most accommodating when you have food... lol!

All taken on my 60D, shot in JPEG, and the only post processing is a bare minimum of sharpening in Easy Thumbnails (resizing program) when reducing the image for publishing to the web. No cropping.
