I joined this drop, and have an email receipt for the lens, which was supposed to have shipped today. I'm eager to have in hand while attempting to video a rehearsal of a choral group & orchestra this comming tuesday night. Assuming it were to ship on monday, does anybody know how I might contact the vendor and ask for (and pay for) overnight shipping?

Yes. As long as you get it in Canon mount. You can use either EF (full-frame lens) or EF-S (crop-frame lens) mount lenses on that body. In essence, the physical mount on the camera body is the same on either say, 5D Mk IV (III, II, or original, 6D, 6D Mk II, 5DS, etc.), or an EOS 80D (or xxD series, Rebel series, SL1, 2, or the new 3, etc.).

FINALLY... A deal that I could match in price with a 3 minute Google search. "https://www.abesofmaine.com/Tamron_18-400mm_f_3_5-6_3_Di_II_VC_HLD_Lens_for_Nikon_F_1037732.html?l=ADWORDS&gclid=Cj0KCQjw4fHkBRDcARIsACV58_GacwThcIJvaGMy7_ckPFiroQQqWrQVErLBYK2_IlpC-Fpc3A-wRHkaAkckEALw_wcB" I continue to have high hopes for Massdrop. The business format is great but I have yet to find a product for sell that I could not find cheaper with a 3 minute Google search (this exception). As far as the lens, I have the lens and I recommend the lens to EVERYONE for a grab and go, all in one lens. So if I can only take one body and one lens and my subject will vary, this is the lens. No it is not the best optics, nor the best mechanics but it is absolutely the best all in one lens...period! You cannot go wrong with the lens or the price. Massdrop finally did a good job at negotiating. :)

The difference is that the Massdrop lens comes with the 6yr warranty of the US version. The one you found seems to be the international version that is not cover by Tamron’s warranty.

There are plenty of reviews of this lens: DPreview.com, Dustin Abbott (.com), the_digital_picture.com, or try Youtube, or just Google or Bing it.

No problem! Its confusing. This is advertised as an APS-C lens (EF-S). Canon cameras come in several mount types. Usually their full-frame cameras use their "EF" mount. I know all of the Canon APS-C DSLR cameras (like Rebel, 600D) support EF-S AND EF lenses, unless there is some exception I can't think of. "EF-M" mounts are exclusively for mirrorless cameras, like EOS-R or some of the compact mirrorless ones. So, Canon APS-C DSLRs can use EF and EF-S. Canon Full Frame cameras can only use EF. Canon mirrorless can only use EOS-M. They do sell mount adapters to go from EF to EF-S and I think EF-M, but those can be awkward. The adapters may introduce some distortion or abberation on the outer edges when going from smaller to larger frames. I know that I've used an EF "L" lens (the "L" is Canon's way of saying its higher end for their own branded lenses) with plenty of success on my Rebel T6i, which is APS-C.

I already have an 18-270 and like it in the respect of not having to change out lens to get a verity of shots.  There is a reason other companies don't offer such a lens, because of it's limitations, quality wise.  But unless you're a professional it delivers what you need.  I'll suspect the 18-400 will do the same.  If I'm traveling half way around the world I have to condense my equipment it should be a great travel lens.  Only question are these lens grey market, re-conditioned or never used new?

Says right in the specs. "Included
  • Front lens cap
  • Rear lens cap
  • Petal-shaped lens hood
  • Tamron’s 6-year warranty"

Price is alright, but I already have a 18-270mm version for years now. It's a "meh" lens. Not much wow but for the price it gives a wide zoom range so you don't need to change lenses around on a trip.

I bought this lens elsewhere recently and used it with a Nikon d3400 as an all-in-one lens for a trip overseas. I enjoyed using it, but it's not a lens without issues. Skill level wise, I would consider myself very much an amateur photographer. I played around with it before my trip and thought it worked fairly well as a macro lens. It only required a short distance of maybe 30cm or so to be able to focus on close objects when fully extended. I didn't get much of a chance to try this out in real applications though. My main application for this lens was to pick out far away details when I was shooting from up high, think the observation deck of a skyscraper. I had a lot of fun using it this way. I didn't use a tripod with it. I'd say my main issues with this lens are:
  • The autofocus starts going a little haywire at longer focal lengths and when trying to focus on things far in the distance. However I'd imagine this to be a problem with any lens, and since the d3400 has such few focus points that may have exacerbated this issue.
  • The lock is only for keeping the lens closed when collapsed. This sucks because when the lens is unlocked and pointing down, the lens will sometimes open of its own accord.
  • The lens seemed to resist me adjusting the focus while the camera was in autofocus mode. This might have been a rogue setting but I don't think that was the case.
The lens itself is quite long when fully extended and so the VC is quite necessary without a tripod. I wasn't taking a lot of shots on this trip so didn't get a good read on how much battery it used. All in all I was satisfied with the lens. I would post sample pictures but unfortunately I haven't gotten around to pulling them off my camera.
