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 Nikon is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens for Nikon F-mount APS-C cameras that features a versatile 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-450mm. 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

    Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 reviews

    16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO Lens for Nikon is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 134.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this lense I was contemplating which zoom lens to buy to replace my 18-300 Nikon lens. My Nikon lens broke and I had to leave it in another country. So, after I came back from my trip abroad, I was looking for one lense I can do most. I also have 500MM and close up lenses. However, traveling with such a heavy weight is a nuisance and I had lot of trouble with airlines (many restrictions). Finally, I selected Tamron ( my close up lens also Tamron) 16-300MM lens. I am so happy I got this lens and it works on my Nikon d7000 like charm. Picture quality is fantastic for this class zoom lens. I had this lens only for couple of weeks and I will update when I have more experience with it

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected. I purchased this lens to replace my Nikkor 18-200mm lens for my Nikon D7000 camera. I wanted the extra 100mm of zoom range. I considered the Nikkor 18-300 mm lens but it was too expensive for my budget. I thought that the Tamron 16-300 would not be quite as sharp as my current Nikkor 18-200 but that with the extra 100mm of zoom the trade off would be ok. However, since I have been using the Tamron 16-300, I have been very pleasantly surprised by it's sharpness. It is easily as sharp as my Nikkor 18-200 if not a tad more so. So I am very happy with this lens and would readily recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good buy This is a good all-in-one lenses. On the plus size, the macro capability are considerable and apply to the entire focal length 16-300. The weather seal is a plus. Considering it's focal range, it is lightweight. Especially for all-in-one lenses, the sweet spot for clarity is between the extremes - both focal length and aperture. I find it slightly annoying that the manual focus ring functions even with the autofocus is engaged. I have learned to hold it so as not to accidently touch the manual focus ring. (Other photographer friends find this to be a plus.) Solid performed at a good price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, One Good Lens That Does It All I love to cover literary readings, street festivals and political protests. Now, instead of carrying around two lens, I'm down to one that does it all - the 16-300 from Tamron. It works just fine with my Nikon d800. It's like they were made for each other. Taking a photos of patrons at an art gallery and/or showing protesters in front of a public building, I'm very pleased with my purchase of the Tamron's 16-300. The photos I've included in this review were taken at a street festival. One was set at 16mm and the other at its furthest range - 300mm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide Range / Compact Size Tamron, like Sigma, are designing some well made lenses with exceptional optical qualities. This lens with a zoom range from 16mm to 300 mm is no exception. Nice compact package for a 18.7 X zoom. Both the zoom ring and the focusing ring rotate smoothly. Auto focus was accurate on my Nikon D7100 camera, no adjustments were required. Vibration Control performed well, really important at the300mm setting. Register the lens and Tamron provides a 6 year warranty.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile Lens, Great for Travel This lens doesn't quite do it all, however, it comes so close! I recently went to Vietnam and Cambodia via motorcycle. Since space and weight was a premium, I began looking for a zoom lens that could also shoot close up. I also wanted an F-stop below 5 or 6 for more versatility in low light. This is it. I took more than 4000 pics in the month I was there and am very happy with the results. Though the zoom at max is not the most crisp, it is key for subjects in third world countries as many do not necessarily want their pictures taken. Overall, 4 out of five stars. This lens really shines in the mid range of its capabilities, 80-200, but can get that long shot when you need it (sunny, too).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good wide range sense I bought this lens to replace two zooms which cover most of this range. This will be useful for times when I need to go from wide-angle to telephoto and don't have the time or ability to carry and switch two lenses. Like most lenses, my tests show the focus is softer at both ends of the aperture range. One warning: instructions always say to turn off vibration reduction when the camera is on a tripod or other solid object where it cannot move. For my Nikon lenses, I have never seen much difference. For this lens there is a noticeable loss of sharpness if VR is on when using a tripod, especially near 300 mm. It has a lock to prevent lens creep, but it does not appear to be an issue with my lens.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not up to the hype for the extended range lens I still give it three stars since I'm basically comaring it with my Nikkor 18-200 against this Tamron 16-300. Personally, I wasn't impressed by the Tamron lens. The field is definitely a little wider than my 18-200, but the zoom is not that great. Focusing takes a long time, not worth when taking quick shots. Size and weight is good, easy to handle. The lens lock is a great feature, to keep it in place when transporting. Its very handy and easier to use. If you can live with the Nikon 18-200, then you don't need this lens. The additional zoom from 200-300 is not much. The depth to 16 from 18 though is good.
