Lens Review: Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD

Tamron’s new lens, the 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD, comes at a time when the market is choc-a-bloc with DSLRs that have broken new ground in technology and affordability. Given this, which Tamron has come out with an 18-270mm lens that is touted as the lightest and most compact in its class, gives the photographer yet another great lens to choose from.
