    How does this lens compare to the Nikon lenses, in terms of optics and image quality; apart from the capabilities/limitations of the camera? The price is reasonable and the warranty is much longer. Is that misleading?   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      I have this lens as well as the first generation Nikon 18-200MM lens and can honestly say the Tamron is sharper and has less barrel distortion and vignetting wide open than the originally Nikon optic. I can't speak for the current version made by Nikon, but can't image it's Image quality is better than the Tamron and the Tamron is way more affordable as you noticed. Both the new Nikon lens and the Tamron offer long warranties, BUT to avail yourself of them you MUST register the lens with the respective manufacturer. Be prepared to send a copy of your bill of sale with the registration. With Tamron you can submit your registration on line as well as a scanned copy of your receipt rather than mailing it in. Be prepared before starting the process. I own the Tamron for both Nikon and Canon mount camera's and am very pleased with the build quality and image quality. It's a great investment.

      This Lens is made for DX sensor Nikon Cameras and DOES have the focus motor that the D5300 needs, so, It WILL work GREAT on your camera!

      Answer

      For up close, autofocus shots, both the Nikon (you mentioned) and Tamron (in this ad) will be the same if they have same lowest f-stop number. e.g. Tamron 18-200 has f/3.5, check your Nikon's f-stop. I personally like the cheaper and (almost) equally effective Tamron for my shooting purposes.
