Product Description

Tamron 18-400mm Di II VC HLD Lens for Canon

The Tamron 18-400mm Di II VC HLD lens the world's first ultra-telephoto all in one zoom lens developed for APS-C DSLR cameras.  This versatile lens is ideally suited for outdoor and travel photography capable of shooting grand landscapes and minute detail, without having to change out your lens.   A 22.2x zoom ratio extends to 400mm, equivalent to 620mm on a 35mm camera.   The compact form factor and exceptional lightweight construction makes this lens easy to use in demanding conditions but the included Vibration Compensation ensures confident shooting, every time.  The lens weighs approximately 1.5lbs. (24.9 oz.) and is just 4.8in long.  Tamron's high low torque modulated drive or HLD system provides accurate, ultra-fast auto focus.  

Ultra Telephoto All in One

The B028 all in one lens is truly an all in one, capable of capturing wide sweeping landscape as well as pleasing perspecitve flattening effects that you can only acheive with an ultratelephoto lens.  Eliminate the need to carry extra lenses while travelling or risk swapping out lenses in less than ideal conditions or while on the move and capture a wide range of subjects from wildlife to portraits, food to cityscapes.  

Tamron maintains excellent image quality across the entire zoom range with a design that uses 16 lens elements in 11 groups and taking advantage of specialized glass elements with Low Dispersion (LD) and aspherical lenses.   Chromatic aberrations and distortion are effectively minimized.   By optimizing the distribution of power among the lens elements in each group, a perfect balance of compact form and optical performance is acheived.  This lens is also capable of shooting in a tele-macro mode with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9 for extreme close up images with little to no distortion or chromatic aberration and light fringing. 

To keep the lens compact, Tamron employed a newly developed three step extension for the barrel of the lens, allowing the lens to expand to reach the 22.2x zoom ratio mark but keeping the collapsed lens small.   At only 4.8 inches long, and under 2 pounds in weight the 18-400 Di II VC HLD lens is substantial in performance but lightweight enough to not weigh you down or make shooting tedious or difficult.   In addition to the compact form, the included Vibration Compensation adds another level of assurance that your images will be crisp and clear by cutting out camera shake especially in low light conditions or while at those ultra-telephoto focal lengths.  With the VC system in place, your ability to continue handheld shooting frees you from the tripod or monopod expanding your opportunities for casual shooting.  Framing your subjects quickly becomes much easier as well when the camera remains steady.  

High speed auto focus for any lens but particularly when shooting at higher magnifications.  Tamron's exclusive high/low torque modulated drive or HLD is a power sipping focus drive that produces excellent torque and automatically adjusts the motor rotation from low to high speeds to ensure accurate but quiet focusing.  The HLD motor is also more compact allowing that small lens form factor to be maintained.  

Additional 18-400mm Di II VC HLD Lens Features...

  •  The diaphragms within the lens use an electronic pulse signal to adjust for ultra-precise changes to the lens aperture.  
  • Zoom Lock keeps your lens tightly collapsed so it doesn't expand itself while you're walking. 
  • Compatible with the Tamron TAP-in Console for a USB connection to a personal computer for firmware updates and features as well as making fine adjustments to the AF and VC systems.
