TAMRON 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD for Nikon
Go to extremes with the world's first 22.2x ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom.
lntroducing the world's first ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom lens for the APS-C format. With a focal length range of 18-400mm and 22.2x zoom, it has an ultra-telephoto range equivalent to 620mm in the 35mm format. This brings distant subjects closer, while providing perspective-flattening effects that are only possible with an extreme telephoto lens. Plus it offers exceptional optical performance across the entire zoom range-from wide angle to ultra-telephoto. With this new lens - and its moisture-resistant construction - Tamron brings the art of photography to the joy of travel. Now you can use the same lens to shoot everything from stunning landscapes and neon-lit cities to detailed portraits and delicate flora. The ultra-telephoto range makes it just as easy to photograph animals and sports. And with a maximum magnification ratio of 1 :2.9, you can even enjoy tele-macro photography.
620mm capability, compact size
Until now, shooting at ultra-telephoto ranges meant carrying large interchangeable lenses. Thanks to the all-in-one zoom technology developed by Tamron, you can travel with a single lens that’s 121.4mm long and weighs only 705g.*2 Experience the thrill of shooting with compact equipment that makes it easy to capture ultra-telephoto images.
*2 Length and weight are based on the Nikon-mount lens.
Highly precise. Conveniently compact.
Tamron’s exclusive HLD (High/Low torque-modulated Drive) saves power while providing superior drive. It focuses accurately and quietly while adjusting the motor’s rotation from low to high speeds, enabling smooth autofocusing. HLD let us design a space-saving AF module, for a sleeker barrel and reduced overall lens size.
Sharp, solid telephoto shots
Tamron’s VC (Vibration Compensation) technology stabilizes the image in the viewfinder, so you can frame your subject and shoot a sharp image – even at ultratelephoto ranges and in poorly lit conditions.
Expand Your Options with TAP-in Console
The future is here. Now you can update firmware, customize autofocus positions and adjust the mechanical setup and preferences of the 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD by simply attaching it to the TAMRON TAP-in Console (available as optional accessory) and connecting it via USB to a personal computer.
Additional product features
LD (Low Dispersion)
Low Dispersion – LD elements have particularly low colour dispersion index. They reduce chromatic aberrations that appear as colour fringes on the contrast edges and reduce image sharpness.
Zoom Lock (ZL) Mechanism
Zoom Lock – The ZL mechanism prevents unwanted extension of the tube during transport. The lock, which is activated by a switch, protects the lens from damage and at the same time guarantees that it is quickly ready for use.
Internal Focusing (IF) System
Internal Focus – Internal focusing prevents the barrel from extending and rotating during focusing. The lens is easier to handle and is suitable for use with polarising or gradation filters.
Moisture Resistant Construction – The lens is splash-resistant. All critical areas have special seals. Lenses with this feature are ideal for outdoor use in bad weather.
HLD (High/Low Torque Modulated Drive)
High-/Low-torque Modulated Drive – The HLD autofocus is particularly power-efficient. Its arc-shaped design allows it to be integrated even into small and compact lenses. Focusing is virtually silent and with maximum precision.
VC (Vibration Compensation)
Vibration Compensation – Tamron-developed image stabilisation that compensates for unwanted camera movement for sharper images. Shutter speeds of up to 5 EV stops slower are possible with the VC image stabiliser.
EISA Award – Photo Innovation of the year 2017-2018
The Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD challenges our preconceptions about what we can expect from a super zoom lens. In addition to offering the broadest zoom range of any interchangeable lens in the world, at 22.2x, it also includes an effective image stabilization system to improve sharpness at lower shutter speeds, and weather resistant seals to allow users to keep shooting even in adverse weather conditions. Although especially suited to travel, safari and sports photographers, the Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD will also appeal to any photographer looking for a single lens solution to cover all their shooting needs.
