As a further comment, have a look at the review of it on this site, it gets a good write up. If you live near a Jessops take your camera along and ask to try out a few shots.
As far a subject matter is concerned grandchildren, landscape and anything of interest, insects, flowers and any odball or funny situations. Enjoy your new camera and lens, but perhaps hold on a while till you better know what your needs are. The 18-200 / 270 are great walk-a-bout lens, but will struggle in low light, aren't quite wide enough for landscapes, don't have macro and can't shoot ...
I just purchased a 18-270 tamron and have been disappointed in 1) the VC runs for 10 seconds after i let go of the shutter - was told this is normal 2) the image jumped - was told this is normal 3) the over quality - see below took it back to the store and owner agreed the focus was not working correctly so i put another tamron on and the focus was quicker then we compared the image...
I've never shot video with it, so I can't comment on that side of it, although I would imagine that VC is unsuitable for video anyway, as it will reset every few seconds, causing the picture to jump. I think that "silent" is kind of a relative term: it's certainly much quieter than screw focus motors. If you're more than a couple of feet away, you can't hear the focus or the VC, which I think i...
The 18-270 is good but quality seems to be variable - Tamron's quality control seems to be patchy. If you're lucky enough to get a good copy it's great, otherwise... I tried one in my local shop - very unhappy with the results. I ended up with the latest Sigma 18-250mm, very lightweight, small (62mm) filter size and a great walk-around do-it-all lens. I thought the build quality was way better ...
I took the plunge and bought the tamron so far very pleased, very sharp at all distances, compact size, good build quality (on par with the canon) and the deal included a pair of binoculars very pleased

Why not get a 2nd hand wide angle (don't touch the sigma it's blurry) and a GOOD 2nd hand tele. paid 500€ for the original 12-24 and another 500€ for the original 70-300 vr, they are both really worth it. and you can always get some old 35-135 you-ll be surprised how good they turn out compared to all the modern do it ALL zooms. well test it first, in the shop, take some coins, your driving lic...
Probably worth getting the Nikon. Looks like you've decided to anyway! Thom Hogan rates it pretty highly as a great walkaround lens. His review is here:- http://www.bythom.com/18200lens.htm Generally I've found Hogan worth paying attention to, A lot of attention! I've not used it, but it looks pretty good. Personally, I wouldn't read too much Rockwell. He may know his stuff, b...

Check out the Photozone reviews of the Tamron and Sigma lenses with Nikon mounts, it should answer your questions. You could also look for the lenses I suggested on the LCE [London Camera Exchange] web site. They have vast numbers of used lenses, most with a 3 Month warrenty.

I will do.. Sort of limited badly with this 50 meg limit but I will add them into the forum perhaps if I can!
I read (snipped) that a close up lens is a cheaper alternative to a dedicated macro lens, I do not want to spend hundreds of pounds at the moment unless I know that I am going to make use of it. A Close at the lens can often achieve a very good though not perfect results. Photography is often to do with the compromises of how much money you have and how much weight you want to carry in your ...
No my 18-55 came with my D40. In an ideal world I would like to upgrade my body to a D7000. Tend to use the Tamron for wildlife and have got some decent results.
I think its going to be in my list to Panamoz this next week. but think i will start a new thread for that one. Thanks again guys.
Sigma are worth watching at the moment, especially with lenses such as this. Highly corrected, loaded with 13 elements, and quite likely to punch Canon's often vulnerable wider-angle lights out, albeit probably for a premium price.
