The Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3
Even with the lenses massive focal length and zoom range, it offers you some of the best image quality out there allowing you to easily capture some high-quality photographs on your Nikon d3300.
The lens itself has been designed to be as easy to use as possible with you also being able to mount it on your d3300 within seconds. All in all, it can take as little as ten seconds for you to get the lens out of its carry case, mount it to your camera and be capturing photographs with it. As you can probably imagine, time is everything in many photography niches as even a couple of seconds can end up causing you to miss being able to capture an epic photograph.
The massive 16-300mm zoom range on the lens allows you to use it for a huge variety of niches too. When being used down at its 16mm zoom ranges you are able to use it almost like a wide angle lens to capture some epic landscapes or interiors with minimal effort. Moving up through the zoom ranges you get to its middle zoom ranges that are ideal for photography and then up to its high-end zoom that can be used to zoom in to objects far away or increase the level of detail of your image.
One thing we would like to point out is that a dedicated wide angle lens will always be better than using something like the Tamron 16-300mm but in a pinch, it can be used and offers surprisingly good image quality. The lens has a minimum focus distance of around 15.3 inches that may cause a small number of issues when using it for wide angle photography but for the most part, you will be fine.
The Tamron 16-300mm also comes with a surprisingly effective image stabilization technology when you turn its vibration compensation on. This works throughout all of its zoom levels and offers some excellent stabilization when you don’t have a tripod available.
All in all the Tamron 16-300mm is a decent lens that is offered at a fair price in our opinion. It provides tons of functionality for you all in one single lens and can massively increase the types of photography you can take part in with your Nikon D3300.

Again, the Tamron 10-24mm lens will fit your Nikon d3300 natively without the need for any additional third-party adapters or converters. This usually results in a better overall experience as well as a higher overall image quality.
With its 10-24mm zoom range, the lens is perfect as a dedicated wide angle lens allowing you to capture some truly epic landscape vista photographs. The lens is also very small, lightweight, and easy to fit into your photography kit bad making it an ideal travel photography lens too.
The autofocus capability of the Tamron 10-24mm is also excellent, especially for the price of the lens. It has the ability to quickly, effortlessly, and quietly autofocus on your subject making it an ideal lens for run and gun style photography.
Overall we feel that the Tamron 10-24mm is a good lens that will do both you and your Nikon D3300 well if you are looking for a wide angle lens. Its excellent reputation and prove track record will make the lens a valuable investment and a welcome addition to your photography kit.
