Lenses are designed for exclusive use on digital cameras with smaller-size imagers (also known as APS-C sensors). These lenses are not designed for conventional cameras and digital cameras with image sensors larger than 24mm x 16mm (IE. full-frame DSLRs, such as the 5D, 6D series).
No need to change lenses
Shoot in a wide variety of settings, from true wide-angle to telephoto, with a single lens. A zoom range of 18-200mm (35mm equivalent: 28-310mm) means there is no need to change lenses even when switching from wide-angle shots in tight spaces to long telephoto shots of distant objects. Ideal for everything from large group photos, family pictures, portraits, scenery, animals and school events – even for close-up shots.
Greater portability at a weight of just 400g
Covers the focal length range of 18 to 200mm and features Tamron’s VC (Vibration Compensation), but weighs a mere 400g. Tamron designed the 18-200mm VC to be as user-friendly as possible by emphasizing portability and convenience. Users will appreciate the incredible balance and comfortable feel of this lens – even when used with the newest APS-C DSLR cameras.
VC and AF, providing valuable support for DSLR camera novices
Camera vibration is magnified in telephoto shots and when a slow shutter speed is used because of dim lighting. Even beginners can take great photos at long distances, at night, and indoors – and avoid camera shake – thanks to Tamron’s acclaimed VC mechanism. By incorporating a newly designed autofocus drive module with optimal DC motor-gear train integration, the 18-200mm VC also focuses much more quickly and quietly than models with conventional DC motors.
Works great as an easy-to-use lens for day-to-day use
For added dependability and longer life, Tamron’s new lens features moisture-resistant construction that helps prevent damage caused by accidental exposure to wetness. The lens also comes with a Zoom Lock feature to prevent unwanted barrel extension when users carry their lens and camera body combinations with the lens pointed toward the ground.
