Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD in General Photography

When it comes to lens performance, David Pritchard said shooting in cold weather is a classic example of just how versatile this Tamron Superzoom lens is.

Throughout his 365 project he took many images of Rotherham, but he never thought the town would looks as lovely as it did during a shoot on a cold, crisp January morning. He went on a walk which finished with David producing several shots, including this four-shot stitch which is one of his favourites from his 365-day project.


The lens itself became a constant companion and some would say well yes, it would be during a 365-day challenge but this wasn't the only reason why David began using the lens so frequently.

It came in really handy on cold mornings when you really wouldn't want to be changing lenses, particularly when working near water. Its range also came in handy, even more so on the morning when David was shooting his winter shots as he used every focal length of the lens from its superwide view, to telephoto and finally macro. All without having to risk damage to the internal mechanisms of his camera by exposing it to sub-zero, moist air, not to mention the problems that could be caused by changing heavy lenses with numb fingers!

David said: "The versatility of the Tamron 18-270mm PZD is undeniable. In the field, it’s a reliable little powerhouse, and on really cold days you will have me singing its praises for all to hear."
