Tamron Announces World’s First 18-400mm Ultra-Telephoto Lens
Tamron has unveiled an all-new 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLDultra-telephoto lens. A world first and packing an incredibly flexible zoom ratio of 22.2x
The new lens, which will be available for Nikon and Canon APS-C camera users, has an equivalent focal length range of 28-600mm. Surprisingly, the lens comes in a relatively compact body and is really quite light; it’s just 4.8″ [122mm] in length and only weighs 24.9oz [706g].
Since the launch of its AF28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 Aspherical [Model 71D] in 1992, Tamron has dominated the all-in-one zoom category and has produced lots of lenses that cover wide-angle to telephoto zoom ranges in the intervening years.
The new 18-400mm lens packs in Tamron’s gathered wisdom and experience for all-in-one zoom lenses, including the most advanced optical and mechanical designs, an HLD [High/Low torque modulated Drive] for the AF system and the Vibration Compensation system.
Photographers can now enjoy wide-angle to ultra-telephoto photography using a single lens, which is certain to be an ideal travel partner, eliminating the need to carry additional lenses.
