Go to extremes with the world’s first*¹ 22.2x ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom.
lntroducing the world’s first ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom lens for the APS-C format. With a focal length range of 18-400mm and 22.2x zoom, it has an ultra-telephoto range equivalent to 620mm in the 35mm format. This brings distant subjects closer, while providing perspective-flattening effects that are only possible with an extreme telephoto lens. Plus it offers exceptional optical performance across the entire zoom range-from wide angle to ultra-telephoto. With this new lens – and its moisture-resistant construction – Tamron brings the art of photography to the joy of travel. Now you can use the same lens to shoot everything from stunning landscapes and neon-lit cities to detailed portraits and delicate flora. The Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD, with its ultra-telephoto range makes it just as easy to photograph animals and sports. And with a maximum magnification ratio of 1 :2.9, you can even enjoy tele-macro photography.
*¹ Among interchangeable lenses for DSLR cameras (As of May 2017; Tamron)
A lens from the megazoom class allows you to capture a much larger area. Megazooms offer focal lengths from wide angles down to the telephoto range and are thus the lens of choice for most situations. As a result of their high level of flexibility, compact size and low weight, these lenses are particularly suitable for daily use as an all-round lens, as well as for vacations, activities requiring little baggage or for families with children and all their gear in tow.
Features and Functions
620mm capability, compact size
Until now, shooting at ultra-telephoto ranges meant carrying large interchangeable lenses. Thanks to the all-in-one zoom technology developed by Tamron, you can travel with a single lens that’s 121.4mm long and weighs only 705g.*² Experience the thrill of shooting with compact equipment that makes it easy to capture ultra-telephoto images with the Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD.
*² Length and weight are based on the Nikon-mount lens.
Highly precise. Conveniently compact.
Tamron’s exclusive HLD (High/Low torque-modulated Drive) saves power while providing superior drive. It focuses accurately and quietly while adjusting the motor’s rotation from low to high speeds, enabling smooth autofocusing. HLD let us design a space-saving AF module, for a sleeker barrel and reduced overall lens size.
Sharp, solid telephoto shots
Tamron’s VC (Vibration Compensation) technology stabilizes the image in the viewfinder, so you can frame your subject and shoot a sharp image – even at ultratelephoto ranges and in poorly lit conditions.
