Go to extremes with the world's first* 22.2x 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.
*As of time of development per Tamron.
A lens from the mega zoom class allows you to capture a much larger area. Mega zooms 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.
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.* Experience the thrill of shooting with compact equipment that makes it easy to capture ultra-telephoto images.
* 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 ultra-telephoto ranges and in poorly lit conditions.
Expand Your Options with TAP-in Console
The future is here. Now you can update firmware, customize autofocus positions and adjust the mechanical setup and preferences of the 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD by simply attaching it to the TAMRON TAP-in Console (available as optional accessory) and connecting it via USB to a personal computer.
