The new Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD lens for Sony APS-C E-mount cameras is now available to pre-order in the US for $699.00, other countries should follow shortly. First shipping will begin on September 24th 2021.
The 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD covers a wide zoom range from approximately 27mm to 450mm in full-frame equivalent focal length. Tamron claims that this is the first APS-C mirrorless camera zoom lens in the world with a 16.6x zoom ratio, making it a very versatile all-in-one zoom lens.
Its AF drive system uses Tamrons’s VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism for superior quietness and agile performance. The lens includes special lens elements arranged precisely to maintain high resolution performance from edge-to-edge and provide high image quality.
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.
The minimum focus distance is just 0.15m (5.9 in) at 18mm providing a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.
As with most other Tamron mirrorless lenses, the lens features a unified 67mm filter size.
