Backpackers Tokyo

When you are going for a hike or on a trip, you do not always want to carry a backpack full of lenses. Sometimes, a single lens that covers every focal length you could conceivably need is the better way to go. For Sony and Fujifilm APS-C shooters, there is the Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD, and this great video review takes a look the kind of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this excellent video review takes a look at the Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD lens. A superzoom with a remarkable zoom range of 16.6x and equivalent focal length range of 27-450mm, this lens can cover just about any focal length most photographers would need, aside from very wide angles. Like any superzoom, however, you should not expect top-level image quality, though it is quite impressive to see what Tamron has managed to do with this option, particularly at its price level. And of course, such a lens is not about top-shelf image quality, but rather the convenience of having such a huge range available. In addition to that, Tamron has included Vibration Compensation and weather-sealed construction in the lens, making it all the more versatile. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts.
