Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD

Review Date: Dec 15, 2016 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $625.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: light weight wide range
not as sharp as my Nikon primes, but it's pretty close for my uses.

I bought this lens for a trip to the UK and Ireland. It was light enough and had a wide enough range that I rarely put on another lens. I have blown up many of the images to 12x16 or 11x14 and they hold up quite well. I compared it to my Nikon 28mm 2.8 and yes the prime is sharper, but not by much. I have also used this lens at a recent NFL game from my seat. It's not built for that usage, but it held up well. Because it's so much lighter and smaller than my Nikon 80-400, from my seat, I'll use it for that now and again. However, as a travel lens, between this and my Nikon 16-35, it's all I really need. I've been impressed with the results.
