Covering focal lengths from 18 to 200mm, this compact zoom allows you to take great shots in a wide variety of situations. This is a lens made for capturing everyday life and special occasions with a smile. This innovative lens is lightweight, high-quality and ideal as a beginner’s first interchangeable lens – or a casual user’s only lens. And even beginners can take great photos at long distances, at night, and indoors, avoiding camera shake thanks to Tamron's acclaimed VC mechanism.
No need to change lenses—shoot in a wide variety of settings, from true wideangle to telephoto, with a single lens
A zoom range of 18 to 200mm (35mm equivalent: 28-310mm) takes you all the way from wide-angle shots in tight places to long-zoom telephoto images of distant objects. This lens is ideal for everything from large group photos, family pictures, portraits, scenery, animals and school events right down to close-up shots (less than 0.5m) of small subjects such as flowers, insects or food.
With great flexibility, compact size and low weight, this lens is great for daily all-round use, as well as for vacations, activities requiring little baggage or for families with children and all their gear in tow.
Comfortable to carry all day – the lightest lens in its class
This all-in-one megazoom lens features Tamron’s VC (Vibration Compensation)**, but weighs a mere 400g (14.1oz). The core of its user-friendliness is the design emphasis on portability and convenience. Photographers will appreciate its incredible balance and comfortable feel, even on the newest APS-C DSLRs.
Improved AF mechanism
A newly designed autofocus drive module with optimal DC motor-gear train integration makes AF faster, quieter and more precise.
Delivers enhanced imaging performance in a lightweight package
Featuring 16 elements in 14 groups, the 18-200mm VC uses an LD (Low Dispersion) lens element to minimise chromatic aberrations. A circular seven-blade aperture diaphragm maintains an almost perfectly round shape even at two stops down from its maximum aperture, providing desirable and beautiful bokeh with point light sources blurring into naturally rounded shapes.
Other features add durability
For added dependability and longer life, Tamron's moisture-resistant construction helps prevent damage caused by accidental exposure to wetness. The 18-200 VC also comes with a Zoom Lock feature to prevent unwanted barrel extension when users carry their DSLR outfit with the lens pointed downwards.
