Tamron 18-200MM f/3.5-6.3 Megazoom Lens made for capturing everyday life and special occasions with a smile. The 18-200mm VC is the culmination of our persistent efforts to perfect the high-power zoom lens category since 1992. This innovative lens is lightweight, high quality and ideal as a beginner’s first interchangeable lens – or a casual user’s only lens. A lens from the megazoom class allows you to capture a much larger area. Megazooms offer focal lengths from wide angles down to the telephoto range and are thus the lens of choice for most situations. As a result of their high level of flexibility, compact size and low weight, these lenses are particularly suitable for daily use as an all-round lens, as well as for vacations, activities requiring little baggage or for families with children and all their gear in tow. Shoot handheld in situations where others need a tripod. Telephoto and night shots are prone to camera shake, but VC works to keep photos sharp and clear. A newly designed autofocus drive module with optimal DC motor-gear train integration makes AF faster, quieter and more precise.
