NEX-5N and Tamron 18-200mm by Rob van Keulen

Here are some shots with the Tamron 18-200mm E-mount lens on the NEX-5N. The shots are by photographer Rob van Keulen and the Tamron lens was from the Dutch Tamron importer Transcontinenta.

The Tamron 18-200mm is an alternative to the Sony 18-200mm E-mount lens. We posted a comparison last December when it was announced by Tamron.

E-mount Tamron 18-200 Lens Extended from has a nice review of the Tamron 18-200 Di III VC E-mount lens for the Sony NEX system. It looks like the Tamron does pretty well against the Sony 18-200mm OSS Lens.

The current price of the Tamron 18-200mm E-mount is $799, see other buying options. This is the same price as the Sony 18-200mm OSS Lens. We are guessing that the Tamron will drop in price once there is more stock at hand.
