In this article, we will be taking a look at what we feel are two of the best Tamron lenses for Nikon d90 cameras currently available on the market right now. Although Tamron is a relatively well known and established brand with a great reputation, we always see people reaching out for advice on their lenses so we decided to publish this article.
We would like to quickly point out that we have chosen lenses that we feel will offer our readers the best overall mix of functionality, performance, build quality, and price. You can click here if you would like to see a more complete list of Tamron camera lenses that will fit your Nikon d90.
The first lens that we will be covering is an excellent all in one lens that offers wide angle, portrait, and telephoto capabilities all in one lens and the second lens is a great wide angle lens that is perfect for landscape photography. One or both of these lenses will make a great addition to your camera accessories for your d90 and they both natively fit the d90 without the need for converters or adaptors.

The Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC PZD All-In-One
In our opinion, the overall best Tamron lens for Nikon d90 cameras currently available on the market right now is the Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC PZD All-In-One (Click here to check for product prices and availability). It really does offer you an absolute ton of functionality as it offers great image quality for wide angle photographs, portrait photographs, and high-end zoom photographs all in the same lens.
Due to picking all of this up in one single Tamron lens, it potentially saves you money by reducing the number of lenses that you have to purchase as well as the amount of space and weight your lens collection take up. This combined with the excellent performance of the lens as well as its great build quality have made it a very popular choice with the lens also has earned a well-deserved reputation amongst both the photography and videography communities.
Although the lens has a massive focal length, it really does offer excellent image quality through its full range. In addition to this, the lens also includes its own native vibration compensation technology as well as its own autofocusing motor too.
The manual zoom and manual focus rings on the lens have been designed to be as quick and easy to locate as possible in all conditions. Both of the rings have been texturized so they feel totally different to the rest of the lens so even in low light, cold, and wet conditions you can quickly find them and customize your image as required.
The only real downside of the lens is that some low light conditions can result in a slightly grainy image quality but even then, this is fairly rare. Even with that said, we were able to find tons of third-party, independent reviews online like this one that still sing the lens praises and confirm that they are using it as their walk around lens that is handling over ninety percent of their photography needs.
If you are wanting to use your new Tamron lens for any landscape photography then you will probably want to pick up some lens filters to further customize its performance. The Tamron 16-300mm comes with a 67mm filter thread and we would highly recommend that you check out the Gobe 67mm lens filter range (Click here to check for product prices and availability) for some high-quality yet budget friendly lens filters.
At the very least we would recommend that our readers pick up one of Gobes 67mm UV filters (Click here to check for product prices and availability) as they are very cheap and help protect your expensive lens during accidents like the one in the image below. They are a fraction of the price of your lens and can help protect the front lens element and prevent it breaking without having any effect on your image quality while mounted on your lens.
All in all, we really do think that our readers looking to pick up a Tamron lens for their Nikon D90 should seriously consider investing in the Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC PZD All-In-One. It is an excellent lens that will cover the vast majority of the needs of most of our readers without breaking the bank.

The Tamron Auto Focus 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 SP Di II LD
Although it has a variable focal length its capabilities as a zoom lens really are limited and we would not recommend picking this up unless it is to be used exclusively as your wide-angle lens of choice. The manual zoom and manual focus rings are easy to locate, smooth to turn, and very responsive allowing you to easily operate the lens no matter the conditions.
One thing that we would like to point out is that the performance of the Tamron Auto Focus 10-24mm is good even in low light where it will still offer you great image quality. The lens comes with a 77mm lens filter thread and as usual, we would recommend that our readers check out the Gobe 77mm filter range (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
If you are looking to pick up a Tamron lens for your Nikon d90 then we really think that the Tamron Auto Focus 10-24mm is something you should seriously consider. It has stood the test of time and maintained a constant positive reputation throughout. It offers excellent performance, great functionality, and a tough build quality so it can take its fair share of knocks.
