Best-in-class autofocus that’s fast and precise, you’ll never miss a shot

The 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD is a zoom lens with speed, precision and responsiveness that ranks at the top of all-in-one zoom lens category, due in part to TAMRON’s VXD linear motor focus mechanism. Even at the ultra-telephoto focal length of 300mm (the full-frame equivalent of 450mm), it glides into focus comfortably from the minimum distance to infinity. Its focus tracking is so effective that it allows you to capture decisive moments when photographing insects, animals, vehicles or other moving subjects. Since it directly drives a group of lens elements to focus without using gears, the lens is exceptionally quiet. The linear motor suppresses drive noise making this lens ideal for shooting both still photos and video in environments that demand silence.

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. This opens the doors for a style of expression that is exclusive to wide macro photography.

2 When shooting with an MOD of 0.15m (5.9 in) at the wide end, the distance between the subject and the front tip of the lens is approximately 5mm (0.2 in). Use precaution so that the front element does not touch the subject when shooting at MOD.

Uncompromising optical performance throughout the entire zoom range

The 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD is a high-resolution all-in-one zoom lens created through TAMRON's persistent pursuit of outstanding image quality. The optical construction includes several special lens elements, specifically four LD (Low Dispersion) and three hybrid aspherical lens elements. These elements help to produce clear, sharp images from the center to the corners. Chromatic aberration and other optical aberrations are well corrected. In addition, the BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) Coating suppresses ghosting and flare, which commonly occur in backlit scenes. Throughout the entire zoom range, the 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD provides both high image quality and soft creamy bokeh.

This lens incorporates TAMRON's proprietary VC 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 such as indoor or when shooting at night. It effectively reduces the degradation of picture quality. Using AI technologies, the lens will choose the compensation characteristic for videography at focal lengths of 70mm or less.
