18-200MM F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC - Sony A-Mount - TRAFB018S700

Covering Focal Lengths from 18 to 200mm, this compact zoom can take great shots in a myriad of situations

Tamron introduces a lens made for capturing everyday life and special occasions with a smile. The 18-200mm VC is the culmination of our persistent efforts to perfect the high-power zoom lens category since 1992. This innovative lens is lightweight, high quality and ideal as a beginner's first interchangeable lens - or a casual user's only lens.

World's Lightest at 400g (14.1oz)

Comfortable to carry-even all day.

New High-Performance AF Drive Module

A newly designed autofocus drive module with optimal DC motor-gear train integration makes AFfaster, quieter and more precise.

Frame shots instantly-no need to change lenses

Covers the zoom range you need for everyday shots, providing the flexibility to take group photos in tight spaces or make distant subjects appear closer-alll with just one lens.

VC (Vibration Compensation) for sharp handheld shooting

Shoot handheld in situations where others need a tripod. Telephoto and night shots are prone to camera shake, but VC works to keep photos sharp and clear.

Di-II lenses are performance-engineered expressly for digital SLR cameras with image sensors commonly referred to as APS-C, measuring approximately 24mm x 16mm.

Technology

Di II Tamron Di-II lenses are engineered expressly for digital SLR cameras* with image sensors commonly referred to as APS-C, measuring approximately 24mm x 16mm. Rendering an ideal image circle for APS-C sensors, Di-II lenses are also include properties to optimize digital imaging performance.
Low Dispersion

Low Dispersion (LD) Glass for Greater Lens Sharpness
Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens help reduce chromatic aberration; the tendency of light of different colors to come to different points of focus at the image plane. Chromatic aberration reduces the sharpness of an image, but glass with an extremely lowdispersion index, has less of a tendency to separate (defract) a ray of light into a rainbow of colors. This characteristic allows the lens designer to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration at the center of the field (on axis), a particular problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto end of the zoom range), and for lateral chromatic aberration (towards the edges of the field) that often occurs at short focal lengths (the wide-angle end of the zoom range.)

Aspherical

Hybrid Aspherical Elements Provide the Ultimate in Image Quality and Compactness
Tamron uses several hybrid aspherical lens elements in many lenses bearing the Aspherical designation. These innovative optics allow us to achieve the ultimate in image quality, and at the same time produce lenses that offer remarkable zoom ranges in extraordinarily compact packages. By perfecting theses cutting-edge advances for series production, Tamron has advanced the state of optical design, and virtually eliminated spherical aberration and image distortion from the high-power-zoom series.Through the effective application of Hybrid Aspherical Technology, one lens elemen tcan take the place of multiple elements without compromising performance. This is what allows us to produce remarkably compact long-range lenses that deliver a uniformly high level of image quality at all focal lengths and apertures.

Vibration Compensation

Tamron’s Unique State-of-the-Art In-Lens Image Stabilization System
Handheld camera shake is the leading cause of blurry and unsharp pictures. Several leading companies now make lenses with built-in optical image-stabilization systems that sense the amplitude and direction of the shake and compensate by moving optical groups within the lens. Tamron’s exclusive new Vibration Compensation (VC) system that’s built into the Tamron AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical (IF) Macro and the Tamron AF18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC LD Aspherical (IF) Macro lenses performs a similar function, but it executes it much more effectively due to its innovative breakthrough design.
