Customer Reviews

Great travel quality lens This is a great travel lens for Sony A6xxx cameras. The stabilization is remarkably steady. The optics are quite good, especially considering the zoom range and price. I normally buy camera gear second hand and bought one of these Tamron lens used on Amazon but had to return it. The early versions of this lens don't focus as well as later ones, and the particular one I received had a very hard time focusing at all. Current production lens work just fine, and are able to use both CDAF and PDAF focusing on the A6000 series.My only quibble us with Amazon not the lens itself. The lens (in its packaging) was shipped in a manilla bubble wrap lined envelope, not on a cardboard box with padding. It is lucky that the lens got to me intact. Further it would not surprise me if ones being sold as used are returned lens that got too banged up when shipped this way. Food for thought, I'd recommend buying new. 5Great lens, better image stabilization Overall, great lens.The limited/slow f stop could be better. f3.6 at 18mm and f6.3 at 200mm. This makes it primarily a day-time lens, however...Image stabilization is the best of the NEX lenses. It's almost sticky-like. Why is this not talked about more!? You can move the camera around and watch it, it doesn't move or barely moves. This is much better than the Sony NEX OSS lenses (in terms of image stabilization). With Sony lenses I try and limit my shutter speed to 1/80 when hand-held. With the Tamron, I can push it much faster, 1/50 frequently and even 1/25 on occasions. Wow! This makes this a much more flexible lens, as you can now use it at dusk and beyond. It's not a low-light lens by any stretch, but it works well beyond the sunset, which I wasn't expecting.Yes, it's obviously twice the size and weight of other NEX lens, so if this is a hang-up for you, move on to another lenses. I'm OK with it, because there are many situations where I can't change lenses. (i.e. We have season passes to Universal). It is however, still smaller than competitors and significantly smaller and less expensive than a DSLR zoom camera and lens.I was expecting poor image quality in a such a versatile lens, but that's not the case. This is much better than the awful kit lens, but is slightly less sharp than the premium NEX primes.Pro:- Outstanding image Stabilization- (Slightly) smaller/lighter than competitors- Sharp- Very flexible lensCons:- Heavier than what you may be used to (get a sling strap instead of a neck strap, then it's fine)- Large- Should be faster than f3.6-6.3 (however the image stabilization lessens this burden) 5Great feature, performance, and build value! Purchased this lens for Christmas. Overall very pleased with its build and performance over the full zoom range. I am using it as my general purpose lens on a Sony A6300 along with a Zeiss 1.8 24mm lens for low light and high precision shooting. Both are superior to the A6300 Kit lens. Definitely recommend and would purchase again. 5Works fine, but I chose the Sony equivalent I tested it against the Sony equivalent, and chose the Sony because the telephoto and focusing mechanisms seemed a little smoother. Also, I thought the photos taken with the Sony lens slightly higher quality, although I am will admit that this was a highly subjective judgment. 3Gets the job done I actually ordered this for my Sony A7 full frame knowing that I could use it in the APS-C mode. All functions work properly and it's a nice lens. I find it a bit soft at the telephoto end, even stopped down, and I've noticed that focus is slow (or doesn't work) in low or even dim light. It also seems to indicate that it got a focus lock at distances just inside the minimum focusing distance, meaning you think you got focus but you really didn't. So I've learned to step back just a bit when shooting macro shots. All in all, a decent purchase and one that gives the A7 fantastic range. If I want great range at the expense of a few pixels, I can use this lens. If I want to go full frame, I put on another lens. Best of both worlds. Decent for the price, so 3 stars. 3Great lens. Extremely versatile Great lens. Extremely versatile. Great image quality. I plan to use this lens 98% of the time and maybe a prime lens with a very low F stop for certain other occasions. 5Great little lens I sold all my full frame stuff and huge lenses, just wanted a good camera that was small. I purchased an NEX 7, but was very disappointed in the kit 18-55 lens. I was simply frustrated that I could not purchase what I considered a high quality lens for this camera. The only one I could find is the Zeiss 24mm and it is no where to be found. So I looked at the Sony 18-200 and the Tamron. Anything had to be better than the kit. I chose the Tamron because of its smaller size and equal performance. Also Tamron now has a fix for the panorama mode.I must say I am very impressed with this lens. It is not a Canon L, but is very well made and the shots are much, much better than the kit and that is what counts. For your money this is probably the best buy right now for your Nex. In the future there will be better G lenses from Sony (maybe) but for now look no further. I have always used the brand lens that the Camera is, so I was skeptical - not anymore. Also the size of the lens is not obnoxious, I rather like the size.Update May 28, 2012. My lens works perfectly with panorama mode. 4Ok lens but does search for focus. I wish ... Ok lens but does search for focus. I wish I would have purchased the Sony 18-105 with the fixed 4.0 f stop. I've shot about 50 pics with what I would describe as ok. 4Works well with a5100 This lens works well with my sony a5100. The AF is supported and I feel fun taking photos around. Some people said that AF at night is not good but fine for my case. Worth the price. 5Real Quality Lens for Sony Emounts !! I purchased this lens for my NEX-7. I purchased the all black, due to the fact it goes with my NEX-7. I've gotta say that I'm really impressed with the build quality, and performance of this lens! It, like all compromise lenses, covers a large range of focal lengths. And it does as well as the Sony lenses would have. It also matches the NEX-7 well. 5
