Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD Lens - Nikon Fit Summary
Tarmron18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD Lens - Nikon Fit Features in Detail
The world's first ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom lens to achieve 400mm telephoto
The focal length of 400mm on the telephoto end enables the capturing of ultra-telephoto pictures with the 35mm equivalent of 600mm angle of view.
Now, with just this one lens, a photographer can readily enjoy the power of the ultra-telephoto to bring distant subjects closer as well as the perspective-flattening effects that only extreme telephoto settings can achieve.
This all-in-one zoom lens is ideal for travel and everyday carry. It allows a photographer to switch from wide-angle to ultra-telephoto without changing lenses, making it faster and easier to capture a much wider range of subjects including travel scenes, wildlife, action sports, landscapes, cityscapes, portraits and food.
Excellent image quality across the entire zoom range, from wide-angle to ultra-telephoto
Optimum power distribution among the individual lens element groups achieves both the optical performance and the compact size necessary for an ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom lens that boasts 400mm focal length. Also, it enables tele-macro photography with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9.
lightweight and compact design exhibits Tamron's basic philosophy for all-in-one zoom lenses
A new lens barrel design utilizing three-step extensions was developed to enable the necessary elongation to produce a 22.2x zoom ratio.
Compared to the conventional approach, the division into a larger number of cams ensures comfortable operation and stability while zooming. Tamron's philosophy for all-in-one zoom lenses is to allow each photographer to casually capture everyday images with a lens of a practical size.
HLD motor provides high-precision AF and enables compact lens construction
The power-saving HLD motor produces outstanding driving torque, and adjusts motor rotation from low to high speed to enable accurate and quiet focusing. The HLD motor takes up less space thanks to its small size and circular arc shape that allows the size of the lens to be reduced.
Electromagnetic diaphragm system now used also for Nikon-mount lenses
Available only with cameras compatible with the electromagnetic diaphragm (as of May 2017):

New lenses tend to come with all sorts of new acronyms to impress upon us that there is something new-fangled contained within and whilst impressive in their own right, are usually new iterations of existing focal lengths or ranges.
This lens doesn't fall into that category, with a truly unique focal range of 18-400mm (35mm equivalent of 27mm to 600mm on Nikon APS-C DSLRs) meaning you can go through the spectrum of focal lengths from wide-angle up to ultra-telephoto.
Tamron's Vibration Compensation is built-in and will become most effective when you are exploring that at the telephoto end of things - meaning you will be able to shoot hand-held at those longer focal lengths.
Thanks to the HLD motor this is a much more compact lens than you would expect - and is ideal for the person looking to take their camera away but not to have a boatload of lenses to tow along with them.
