Note that this is not for your professional award-winning shots. This is best for travel or everyday photography. Please do not compare this to your expensive Canon L or prime lenses, enough of that. I have some, too. I bought this to enjoy taking pictures of people, places, things, animals, family and friends, and not pixel-peek nor dissect its technical aspects.
Cost-effective, sharp, VC, and excellent range - I say this is a keeper.
- Horrible CA in certain situations.
- Barrel still too loose. I wish the lock was applied on all positions rather than just the transport.
Having said that, after about 2 months of use, I still have not gotten to the point where it slides on its own while tilting, but looking at the progress from the day I received it, how quickly it gotten loose, it might happen. Again, speculation based on extrapolation, may not be true. I will update the post in few months again.
Other than above 2 gripes, this is tremendous value lens. I can't boast enough about it. Combined with DXO Pro 9 software, this lens delivers no less than professional images. Look at some of the images I uploaded of my backyard wild life.
The hawk was sitting 14 feet from the lens (Once in a life time opportunity) on my deck!
There zoom is slightly stiff but remains easy to use. There is no drift of the zoom when the lens is held facing down. And there is a lens zoom lock at 16mm when the lens is not in use. With an f stop of 3.5 to 6.3 it is not the fastest lens available but is remains a very good lens for day to day use.
This lens makes an excellent all in one lens. I use it to replace carrying a macro lens, mid-range zoom lens and a long zoom lens. You will not be disappinted.
It is, however, a little bigger than its less ambitious competitors, the earlier Tamron AF 18-270 and the Sigma 18-250. Mounted on my 70D it has a nice balance. On a smaller body it might seem a bit big for a "compact" zoom.
Overall it feels well made, a bit better than the 18-270.
To be clear, my rating is for its class, not against a set of prime lenses or a pair of smaller range zooms. This is a lens for when you want to travel light. By its nature it's pretty slow at the long end (f/6.3), which is unavoidable without increasing the lens diameter. It's sharp, but not razor sharp. I see only a little pincusion at the long end, but some clear barrel at the wide end. All typical of this kind of lens, but overall fairly well controlled.
This is a lens for carrying around, taking on a hike or a trip, or to an event. It's not a lens for studio work, serious architectural photography (although it will do OK in its mid zoom range), or where you are worried about parallel lines.
In other words, it is good at what it claims to be, a fairly compact lens with a huge zoom and without excessive compromises.
