The world’s first 16.6x all-in-one zoom lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras

The 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD is the world's first lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras with a 16.6x zoom ratio, the greatest feature of this lens, covering wide angle to an ultra-telephoto range. The full-frame equivalent focal length range is from 27mm to 450mm. With this broad coverage, it empowers shooting in a wide variety of situations, including everyday life and travel snapshots, both wide-angle and dynamic ultra-telephoto landscape photography and macro photography.

Best-in-class, extremely fast and precise AF provided by VXD linear motor focus mechanism

The 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD utilizes TAMRON's proprietary VXD linear motor focus mechanism. It achieves AF speed and precision that stand among the best of all all-in-one zoom lenses. Throughout its range, from wide-angle to ultra-telephoto, it provides precise AF shooting. Excellent when tracking a moving subject in focus, it is ideal when photographing animals, aircraft, railways and other moving subjects. It’s extremely quiet, and therefore perfectly suited for both still and video shooting in conditions that demand silent operation.

MOD of 0.15m (5.9 in) and maximum magnification ratio of 1:2 at wide end

With an MOD of 0.15m (5.9 in) at the 18mm wide end and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2, the 18- 300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD performs amazingly well when shooting up close compared to other all-in-one zoom lenses

It enables users to enjoy creative macro photography with highly blurred backgrounds, a feature unique to macro photography. As a pioneer in all-in-one zoom lenses, TAMRON demonstrates unmatched originality in close-up shot When shooting at the MOD of 0.15m / 5.9 in (at the wide end 18mm), the distance between the subject and the tip of lens is approximately 5mm (0.2 in). Use precaution so that the front element does not touch the subject when shooting at MOD.

The best image quality in its class

In terms of image quality, this new 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD is one of the best-performing all-in-one zoom lenses for APS-C mirrorless cameras. To achieve a zoom ratio of 16.6x while ensuring high image quality, the lens features a well-balanced arrangement of three hybrid aspherical elements and four LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements to effectively suppress optical aberrations. Throughout the zoom range, it maintains high resolving power from the centre to the corners.

Outstanding VC stabilization

Despite its compact size, the lens is equipped with TAMRON's proprietary VC mechanism. With or without image stabilization in the camera body, the VC included in this lens effectively mitigates camera shake that is likely to occur in low-light conditions indoors and at night. Furthermore, using AI technologies, the lens will choose the compensation characteristic for videography at focal lengths of 70mm or less.

Comfortably compact

With its length of just under 126cm and weight at just 620g, this lens is a comfortable size to carry and with its huge zoom ratio of 16.6x you may find it is the lens you use on most occasions to cover family events, holidays, portraits and landscapes, plus great close ups with the minimum focus giving great Macro capabilities.

User-friendly features (Moisture-Resistant Construction, Fluorine Coating, Zoom Lock switch)

Tamron is renowned for its weather protection using its Moisture-Resistant Construction and this lens continues to benefit from this technology to protect the moving parts of the lens against inclement weather conditions. The Fluorine coating on the front element also makes the lens repel water & oil and this makes it very easy to clean too. When walking or with the lens packed for travelling the Zoom Lock keeps the lens in the closed position to prevent the barrel from extending accidentally.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
