Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

The Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO Lens for Canon is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens for Canon EF-mount APS-C cameras that features a versatile 35mm equivalent focal length of 25.6-480mm. This provides users with an extremely wide-angle and super telephoto lens in one convenient package. Also, it has an aperture range from f/3.5-6.3 to f/22-40 across the zoom range.

The 16-300mm is also capable of decent macro capabilities with a reproduction ratio of 1:2.9 when zoomed in to 300mm. This is due to a minimum focus distance of 15.3". Also, for excellent image quality, numerous special glass elements are used in the lens design. There are one Hybrid Aspherical element, three Molded-Glass elements, two Low Dispersion elements, one Extra Refractive Index element, and one Ultra-Extra Refractive Index element.

For general use, there is a Piezo Drive autofocus system which is powered by a fast and quiet standing-wave ultrasonic motor. This allows you to quickly achieve focus for sharp images. There is also Vibration Compensation which provides optical image stabilization that reduces camera shake at slow shutter speeds and longer focal lengths. And, included with the lens are a flower-shaped lens hood as well as front and rear lens caps.

Enhanced support for contrast-detection autofocus and when using Live View modes. Also, this lens has full-time manual focusing capabilities
Lens construction of 16 elements in 12 groups
Angle of view of 82°12' to 5°20'
Uses 67mm threaded filters

High quality lens coatings minimize ghosting and flares in order to provide sharp, high contrast images

    Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 reviews

    16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO Lens for Canon is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 193.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good lens for 7D II This lens was purchased for a walking around lens for a Canon 7D II. I use it most commonly in manual mode with auto ISO. It makes a comforbale combination to carry and the combination looks good too. The lens functions well at the f-stops where I have tested it, wide open to f-22. There is some chromatic aberration in the peripheral areas of the images. This is easly eliminaed in Photoshop, mostly with a single slider adjustment. I have been able to make 17 by 25.5 inch enlargements which retain satisfactory sharpness from images created by this lens. Overall this is a good lens with a huge range of focal lengths.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really great walk about lens Tamron makes wonderful lenses and this relatively new one is perfect for my type of photography. I am an amateur who does not like to carry a selection of lens around with me. I am always walking and shooting. This lens is my perfect walk about lens. The 16 - 300 mm allows me to take broad landscapes and then zoom in to take pictures of Osprey in their high nests, and everything in between. I also use the zoom feature to capture macro flower images that are beautiful. Very easy to use, great quality and durability. Tamron has also reduced the weight making it easier to hand hold for those longer telephoto images. Just love my new lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great General Purpose Lens I got this lens prior to an Alaska vacation. The focal range is as great as it gets for every situation I ran into. I took two photos in really dim light with my Canon 60D with far better than expected results. This lens can do macro photography quite well. There is some slight optical distortion close to 16mm or full wide-angle. Focusing is somewhat slower than my Canon lenses, but quick enough so that I never missed a single shot. Overall, I am well pleased with this lens and am solidly convinced that I made the right choice by getting it. With all of the great photos I took, I had to give it 5 stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens for all around shooting. I purchased this lens from B&H for all around shooting & it does not disappoint. I expected some lens distortion & chromatic aberration because of the 18.75 zoom ratio. But, I found that LD & CA is not all that bad. Using Photoshop or similar software will correct most of this issue. This lens profile is now included in the latest Adobe Camera RAW 8.5 update. Lens sharpness at higher zoom noticeably improves with higher f-stops. There's a slight catch at about the mid-point while zooming. Others have committed on this so it may be a design feature rather than design flaw. VC works well. For video, AF is reasonable quiet though not as quite as the STM kit lens. This lens is as advertised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy as can be I had bought my camera (canon rebel T5 )with the kit lens a couple of months back and was ready for a lens upgrade , I am not a profesional photographer so spending a thousand or more for a lenswas out of the question. I saw this lens in a magazine and looked it up and also contacted a friend for info. I have had this lens for about 3 weeks and I am very pleased. I nolonger have to change from my 18-55 to my 75-300 the 16 - 300 covers it all. I took pictures of the towers and other spots in Priceton that came out sharp and I've done some pictures of raptors that came out really nice . I love the lens. I have heard tho that if you use the image stabilization alot you may like to have 2 batteries for your camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 16-300mm f/3.5 - 6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO Great all-in-one lens for the Photo Enthusiast.... Instead of having to carry several lenses, this one will take care of it all. It has a great focal length equiv. to 25mm-465mm length. With the Optical Stabilization it makes holding the lens steady very easy. Although not a Full Sensor, the APS-C/DX Sensor captures the light and images well. The Auto focus with PZD is smooth and quick. Overall a Great lens to have. If you have to pick a single lens, this would be the one.... OK, now some weak points; at 300mm length, you will get some image blur at the edges, some chromatic abberation at the 150-300 mm range, is it noticable, probably not to the general photo enthusiast. If you purchase this lens, you will not be disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel lens With a little TLC, this lens can go from being a good all-around lens to being a great all-around lens. Start by adding a UV protective filter (better to replace an inexpensive filter than an expensive lens). Next use the built in micro adjustment features of your camera to fine tune the focus. For Canon users with 70D, 7D mark II, or similar, there is a micro adjustment that lets you sharpen the focus at both wide-angle and tele-photo. Last, take a few moments in a controlled environment (preferably mounted on a tripod) to set the camera's color, saturation, and hue to your desired level. Some cameras will allow you to store the data to one of the presets for instant recall. When finished, head out into the world and unleash your inner Nat Geo photographer...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked as well as expected. I would buy this lens again. I bought this lens to pair with my Canon Rebel XSi, and immediately took it to Italy for two weeks: Florence, Milan, Venice, and Rome. It worked very well. Images were at least as sharp or sharper than with the original stock Canon lens. Manual focus override in Auto focus mode was a plus. It did surprisingly well shooting inside cathedrals with no tripod and no flash. Also did well outside at night with just a monopod and no flash. Note: If shooting straight up, turn off the image stabilization. Otherwise, it won't take a picture. I'll give it 4 stars for now 'cause it's still new, and I'll bump it up to 5 if it performs this well through the Summer.
