After the unofficial news about the release of Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD, the company now officially announces it, along with the price and the full specs. This is the world’s first ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom lens, and it’s made for APS-C DSLR cameras. It covers the range from wide-angle to ultra-telephoto, allowing you to shoot in different kinds of situations.

The lens is constructed from 16 lens elements in 11 groups. Low Dispersion and aspherical lens elements minimize chromatic aberrations and distortion, which provides high-quality images. The lens also allows tele-macro photography, with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9.

Despite the focal length, Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 is a light and compact lens. Still, it’s equipped with the accurate and quiet AF drive system, as well as Vibration Compensation system.

Take a look at the full specs:

Model : B028
Focal Length : 18-400mm
Maximum Aperture : F/3.5-6.3
Angle of View (diagonal) : 75°33′ – 4° (for APS-C format)
Optical Construction : 16 elements in 11 groups
Minimum Object Distance : 17.7 in (0.45m)
Maximum Magnification Ratio : 1:2.9

: for Nikon 24.9 oz (705g)
Aperture Blades : 7 (circular diaphragm)
Minimum Aperture : F/22-40
Image Stabilization Performance : 2.5 stops (CIPA Standards Compliant)

(For Canon : EOS-80D is used / For Nikon: D7200 is used)

Standard Accessories : Flower-shaped lens hood, Lens caps
Compatible Mounts : Canon, Nikon

Although it’s not the fastest lens there is, I believe it can still be useful in plenty of situations. And it seems that the price is rather fair: it will cost $649. Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 is available for preorders, and it will start shipping on July 21. It’s available for Nikon F and Canon EF mounts.
