The TAMRON 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Model B008) is quite a controversial lens. I just had to get one to find out for myself what this lens is all about. Follow my blog as I use this lens on a daily basis and discover for yourself if this lens is indeed a diamond in the rough, or if it simply just another average, try to do it all, kit level lens.

Well, shoot with exposure bracketing, and hope you can save some pics in post processing. Pop over to a good HDR group such as and you will see how effective a little HDR can be on man made objects such as cars. So, below my try at saving what is otherwise a pretty plain photo.
