Answer:
I have used this lens with Nikon D-3000 and Nikon D-5300. These cameras are reflex. I really don't know if the Tamron AF 18-270 mm will work with the new Nikon 1 J4.

Answer:
This lens will definitely fit the D60. Nikon is justifiably famous for the interchangeability of their mounts. The only potential issue would be that the D60, like many of Nikon's lower end cameras, does not have a focusing motor in the camera body so autofocus will only work if the lens has a motor.

The only potential issue would be that the D60, like many of Nikon's lower end cameras, does not have a focusing motor in the camera body so autofocus will only work if the lens has a motor. The Tamron does have such a motor (PZD) so will autofocus just fine. The only negative I have found is that with the lens at f6.3 sometimes the autofocus is flaky since the Nikon likes lenses no slower than f5.6. This is only an occasional problem.
I do need to take issue with another reviewer's comment about the sensor size. The D60 is a DX camera meaning the sensor is the smaller one and this Tamron is correct for this camera, i.e. there is no vignetting. see less

Answer:
I believe that is an A-mount lens camera so the Tamron A-mount version should work.
just be sure its the one for Sony Cameras NOT Canon etc.

Answer:
It comes with the tulip lens hood and a Tamron logoed cap. Great lens ! Would suggest a UV filter primarily for front lens protection. If you edit your photos, no need to spend on a polarizer unless you are concerned about reflections. Easy to darken skies as needed.

Answer:
I have no idea. It works with mine. Not the greatest auto-focus, but it works.

Answer:
I am very satisfied working in low-light conditions. How it will perform for you, is a guess, because I don't know which camera you would be putting it on. A lens will do what it is supposed to do when the camera meets or exceeds the lens' capabilities. On the Canon T1i, it does what I want it to.

A lens will do what it is supposed to do when the camera meets or exceeds the lens' capabilities. On the Canon T1i, it does what I want it to. I'm sure it could be pushed to greater things, if attached to a more "high end" camera. I have panned a crowd, with only the stage lights burning, and gotten a satisfactory shot. Are there better lenses? Of course, but how "professional" do you have to be? see less

Tamron does not have a presence on Amazon to be able to see this, these questions go to Tamron dealers.

That said, and to expand on the question and your subsequent comment, the issue with having VC in both the lens and the body is that they would counteract one another, and in fact make things worse and not better. In our discussions with the Tamron factory representatives, they point to that as the reason for not including the VC in the lens, as every single user would have to remember to disable one of the stabilization mechanisms, which, while you have expressed a desire for, would not be practical for the bulk of the users, and would create scores of people whose lenses were yielding blurry photos all of the time, and thus "defective" lenses even though there would be nothing wrong with the lens. As for price structure, I cannot speak to that, and would suggest you contact Tamron directly with that inquiry, as again they have no presence here on Amazon to see your query. Thanks. see less

Answer:
This is a later model. I have yet to notice a difference.
"Tamron's 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD was announced in December 2010, as a successor to the well-regarded AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO that we reviewed in December 2008. Compared to the previous version, its main attractions are a… see more

"Tamron's 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD was announced in December 2010, as a successor to the well-regarded AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO that we reviewed in December 2008. Compared to the previous version, its main attractions are a significant reduction in size and weight, and the addition of an 'Piezo Drive' motor for faster, quieter autofocus. At launch it was also the longest range superzoom available, although it's recently been surpassed by the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR in this respect." http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/tamron-18-270mm-3p5-6p3-vc-pzd see less
