The New Standard for High-Power Zoom Lenses

Expand your options with high-power zooming from 16mm wide-angle.

This all-in-one zoom lens is a supremely versatile photographic tool spanning an ultra-wide range of focal lengths. Tamron sets a new standard with a revolutionary new 18.8X zoom lens that covers 16mm to 300mm and provides macro focusing. It combines our latest advances in optical design with multiple layers of coating to produce clear, sharp images while maintaining compact dimensions.

The world's first 18.8X zoom, plus 1:2.9 macro reproduction.

Zooming from 16mm (35mm equivalent:24.8mm) to 300mm (35mm equivalent: 465mm), at its widest-angle setting this lens can shoot sweeping panoramic landscapes and intimate interiors, and as a telephoto it can capture powerful close-ups of distant subjects. Macro focusing down to 1:2.9 is also provided.

Vibration Compensation (VC)

VC is Tamron's proprietary image stabilization system. It employs three driving coils that electromagnetically activate a shake-compensating VC lens group. Since the VC lens elements are held in place only by three ceramic ball bearings, there is smooth movement with little friction. Even when shooting long-range or under low light, the viewfinder image remains stable and the tracking response is excellent.

PZD (Piezo Drive) for faster, quieter autofocusing.

With Tamron's PZD, autofocusing is noticeably faster and quieter. You can capture crisp images spontaneously, even in noise-sensitive situations. There is enhanced support for contrast-detection AF capabilities, and focusing when in live-view mode is smoother. Full-time manual override lets you make fine focus adjustments at any time without having to switch out of autofocus mode.

High image quality in a compact, lightweight zoom

The cutting-edge lens design consists of 16 elements in 12 groups and includes three Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, two LD (Low Dispersion) elements and UXR (Ultra-Extra Refractive Index) glass. Together, they correct optical aberrations, while state-of-the-art multi-layer coating significantly minimizes ghosting and flare to deliver images of exceptional clarity. The entire package is kept incredibly compact through the use of advanced mechanical design engineering.

Moisture-resistant construction

Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.
