Tamron 16-300 mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO

1. Introduction

I’ve never been exactly a fan of megazoom lenses, especially that the first instruments of that type, available on the market, were very weak. However the situation started to improve after some time and many companies enlarged their offer by several 18-200 mm devices which provided really good image quality in the middle of the frame, no matter what focal length you used.

Stil the consumers weren’t satisfied so the producers went a step further, offering such lenses as 18-250 mm or 18-270 mm. Finally Nikon showed the 18-300 mm model, with an outstanding focal range and soon enough it was beaten by Tamron and their 16-300 mm lens.

For obvious reasons that latest lens became a tasty morsel for us as testers and, courtesy of the Foto-Technika company we managed to borrow and test it thoroughly. The results you can find in the following chapters – enjoy your lecture!
