Tamron Announces 18-400mm All-In-One™ Zoom
We are pleased to announce the latest addition to the all-in-one™ zoom line-up:
- 18-400mm F/3.5-5.6 Di II VC HLD all-in-one zoom lens (model B028) in Canon and Nikon mounts
The 18-400mm is a new exciting flagship lens that adds to our current line-up and exemplifies Tamron's all-in-one expertise and the options these great lenses afford photographers of all levels. This new unprecedented all-in-one is positioned as a compact ultra-tele zoom with all-in-one, wide-angle versatility for APS-C cameras. It will target enthusiasts who desire even greater ultra-tele capability for sports, wildlife and more, but also enjoy the versatility of the all-in-one lens for various photographic opportunities. Think of a 100-400mm with portrait, 1:2.9 macro, and wide angle capability for added convenience.
The 16-300mm will remain in the line for the enthusiast customer also looking for great range and versatility, but from a more compact, all-in-one lens prioritizing wide angle for travel and full range for every-day shooting and more.
These two lenses, while similar in many ways, offer different choices for the customer from the pioneer and leader of the all-in-one zoom lens category.
