This update to Tamron’s epic 15x superzoom is not only smaller and lighter, but it now includes a Piezo Drive motor for faster and silent AF. Mat Gallagher takes a look at the new features and finds out if it really is the ultimate travel lens
We placed the Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD on a Canon EOS 7D body and shot our standard resolution test chart. The images were taken at a range of focal lengths and apertures. As a control, the Sigma 105mm macro lens was also used at the same apertures.
