Gear Review-Tamron 16-300mm Zoom Lens

As I said in my earlier review on my Nikon D5000 , I’m a lazy photographer, so having a zoom lens that would cover everything from wide angle to telephoto is very appealing. Very.

And not having to swap lenses to do that…priceless.

pelican flying low over waterAfter doing a lot of research, I settled on the Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens, and got to order it as an early Christmas present. Having used it daily since it's arrival, this Tamron lens has proved to be a very good option for me.(Aren't you glad I don't post all of those photos?☺)

I can grab photos of  birds at a distance, and yet pull up close to a flower. Landscapes turn out beautiful. And all without changing lenses. Over all focus is smooth and crisp. I’ve been quite happy with the results. The lens itself feels very solid and well built.

And with the standard Nikon mount, I can use this Tamron lens on another Nikon body should my trusty old D5000 bite the dust.

Oh…and it has a 6 year warranty!

If you’re looking for a reliable, multipurpose lens, this one fits the bill quite nicely.
