More than a month after Tamron announced that some of its lenses were getting firmware updates so that they would be compatible with the Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R, this Japanese manufacturer launched its new high-quality lens - Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC.
The Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC represents a successor of the superb macro lens Tamron AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF) Macro, which has been one of Tamron's best-selling lenses since its introduction 10 years ago. The new 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC is aimed at Canon, Nikon, and Sony APS-C DSLR bodies and covers a 28-310mm equivalent range. Weighing only 400g, it uses the latest optical and mechanical design, thanks to which it puts in outstanding performance and compactness.
This standard zoom lens, which covers the focal length range of 18 to 200mm, brings optical image stabilization (only for Canon and Nikon cameras, however), which delivers crystal clear images, even when taking telephoto shots, at night, or indoors. It consists of 16 elements in 14 groups, one of which is LD (Low Dispersion), minimizing chromatic aberrations, while the 7-blade diaphragm provides beautiful bokeh. Furthermore, the 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC boasts a sealed construction, which makes it resistant to moisture.
The Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC is already available for sale, priced at $249.
