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.

Jumping Jack

My wife's comfrey plant is a good base for posing insect on, that is if they do not decide to enjoy the sun from that location on their own. This locust with it colorful body made for a good subject for the Tamron with the +4 macro filter since it really fills the frame nicely. I do not typically shoot macro at such a lower magnification, so for your pleasure I have included a sample taken of the same species using one of my reverse mounted lenses.

Canon 600D, Tamron 18-270mm f3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD. Focal length 270mm, Exposure 1/125sec at f16, ISO 800, Focus auto, VC on, Flash none, Filter +4 macro.

And a much closer view taken with a reverse mounted manual zoom lens.
