Tamron 18-300mm f3.5-6.3 Di III-a Lens (Sony E-Mount), Flower-shaped hood, Front & rear lens caps
Wide-angle through ultra-telephoto. All-in-one.
The world's first 16.6x zoom lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras.
The Tamron 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 is the world's first lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras with a 16.6x zoom ratio, the greatest feature of this lens, covering wide-angle to an ultra-telephoto range (27mm to 450mm full-frame equivalent). The lens is designed for Sony E-mount and Fujifilm X-Mount APS-S mirrorless cameras. With this broad coverage, the lens empowers shooting in a wide variety of situations, including everyday life and travel snapshots, both wide-angle and dynamic ultra-telephoto landscape photography and macro photography.
Its AF drive system uses Tamron's VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism for superior quietness and agile performance; and the lens includes special lens elements arranged precisely to maintain high resolution performance from edge-to-edge and provide high image quality making it the best of all all-in-one zoom lenses. Moreover, with an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 5.9" at 18mm, and a remarkable maximum magnification ratio of 1:2, this lens performs astonishingly well when shooting up close.
The lens is equipped with Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism, effectively reducing image blur caused by camera shake in low-light conditions or in the ultra-telephoto range at slower shutter speeds. Also, same as most other Tamron lenses for mirrorless cameras, the lens features a Ø67mm filter size. With a wide variety of other features for comfortable shooting, this is a highly versatile lens that allows you to easily enjoy high image quality from wide-angle to ultra-telephoto and paves the way for exciting new photographic experiences.
Best-in-class autofocus that's fast and precise
The 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD autofocus provides speed, precision and responsiveness that ranks at the top of all-in-one lens category, due in part to TAMRON's VXD3 linear motor focus mechanism. Even at the telephoto end of 300mm, it glides into focus comfortably from the minimum distance to infinity. The linear motor suppresses drive noise making this lens ideal for shooting both still photos and video in environments that demand silence.
Equipped with TAMRON's proprietary VC
This lens incorporates TAMRON's proprietary VC4 mechanism to minimize the effect of camera-shake, which is likely to occur in the telephoto range. It displays its ability to perform when shooting handheld under low-light conditions. Using AI technologies, the lens will choose the compensation characteristic for videography at focal lengths of 70mm or less.
Maximum magnification ratio is 1:2, absolutely amazing for an all-in-one zoom lens
At the 18mm wide end, the lens attains an MOD of 0.15m (5.9 in) and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2. With an amazing working distance of 5mm (0.2 in)2, you can get as close as you want to your subject while capturing the background.
