    Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD Announcement


    Tamron, just like Sigma, is surprising its customers with a number of premieres and new products introduced on the market. Sigma has dominated the last weeks but now Tamron is taking over, presenting a “very” universal zoom lens Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD with huge focal length 18-400mm (for APC sensors). The lens is perfect for traveling, and many enthusiasts of portrait or sports photography will also find it useful.


    Inside the lens, we will find the optical system consisting of 16 lenses placed in 11 groups. We also have the image stabilization system at our disposal, which will for sure prove useful during taking photos at long focal lengths (effectiveness of around 2.5 EV). The 7-blade aperture is to take care of image vividness.



    1). Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD


    An advanced HLD (High/Low torque modulated Drive) motor has been used to control autofocus. It is a new construction, in which the emphasis is put on smooth transitions from low to high speed, ensuring at the same time quiet, fast and precise focusing. Minimum focus distance is 45cm.


    Plastic housing of Tamron 18-400 mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD is sealed and its design is similar to the lenses from the refreshed series, just like in the case of Sigma lenses.



    2). Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD


    For such an impressive focal length range, the lens is exceptionally compact. Its length is 123.9mm and its weight – 710g.


    Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD will be available with Canon and Nikon mounts. It should appear on sale at the end of July and it will cost around $650.

      Tamron has a patent (201854708A) for a star-shaped lens iris/aperture.

      Lenses with the focal length of 70-200mm are one of the most popular zooms on the market. The leading producers have already introduced the cheaper versions of very popular bright lenses with the aperture of f/2.8. Now it's time for Tamron. 

      The optical system of Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD consists of 20 lenses placed in 14 groups, including 3 low-dispersion elements. The lens is also equipped with a 9-blade aperture, which, in connection with the long focal length, enables beautiful background bokeh. 

      1). Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD
      The lens is equipped with the ultrasonic ring AF motor, which, when it comes to the effectiveness and speed of operation is supposed to match the best constructions on the market. Similarly to the majority of the 70-200mm lenses, it possesses an internal focusing mechanism, thanks to which it does not change its size.  

      The lens has the image stabilization system with the effectiveness of 4 EV.

      2). Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD - Construction

      The body of the lens is made of aluminum. Similarly to other new Tamron lenses, this one is also fully sealed against dust and weather conditions.  In addition, the front lens has been covered with a fluorite coating, thanks to which dust and moisture do not stick to it as easily. 

      Optionally, we may purchase a tripod mounting with an integrated Arca-Swiss footer.

      3). Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD - Seallings 
      The new Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD has the dimensions of 176x76mm and it weighs 860g. The filter diameter is the popular 67mm. The lens will be compatible with the 1,4 x and 2,0 x teleconverters. Similarly to the latest lenses from the producer's offer, it will be also compatible with the TAP-In Console platform, thanks to which we will be able to micro-adjust the AF system and image stabilization as well as update the lens software.

      The lens will appear on the market on 26th April, in the versions with the Canon EF and Nikon F mounts and it will cost $800.
