    Hi

    Not sure this is what you anted to hear however it may help you a bit.

    I have not tried the 18-270, however I have the 28-300 AF 3.5-6.3 Xr Di VC.

    Today my wife and I just got home from a walk. The sidewalks and pathways are covered with ice so you must be very careful while walking. We were at an Animal Sanctuary near to where we live.

    I have the 28-300 Tamron on a D200 and the two combined while not taking great photos take good photos. I could have taken the D300 with the 70-200 on it however if I had fallen and broke the lens or camera it would have not been a great day.

    In the end you get what you pay for. When I purchased the Tamron lens it was with the intent of using it as a good not great all purpose lens. If you are looking for a great lens this is not the way to go.

    i love the 18-270 lens because it saves me time in changing lenses .. the all in one is a all in one.. shoot far away or up close.... and i find the photos are pretty decent .. i am not happy with my other tamron lens purchased last year but the all in one Tamron 18-270mm as far as i am concerned is worth the money..and now so much more reasonable since i purchased one...... a photo i took today..
