Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

The black Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC Lens is an EF-M mount lens. It provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 29-320mm giving it a versatile wide-angle to telephoto range. The lens features internal focus, and built-in Vibration Compensation image stabilization, which reduces the appearance of camera shake. The VC is especially useful when shooting at slower shutter speeds or longer zoom lengths. The stepping-motor AF drive delivers fast and accurate autofocus.

The lens is made up of seventeen elements in thirteen groups, including aspherical, low-dispersion, and XR elements to minimize aberrations, distortion, and lens size. It also features macro-like capabilities, with a minimum focus distance of 19.7" at 200mm, and a magnification ratio of 1:3.7. Included with the lens are front and rear lens caps, as well as a petal-shaped lens hood.

Lens constructed of 17 elements in 13 groups
Aspherical elements work to correct spherical aberrations and limit distortion
Low dispersion elements reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in an image
XR elements help to decrease the size of the lens, enabling this zoom lens to remain compact
Uses 62mm threaded filters
Seven diaphragm blades
Glass molded lens
Zoom lock function

    Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 reviews

    18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC Lens for Canon EF-M Mount (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Working with EOS M3... Yet. I love this lens, and it's great with my EOS M and M2, but it doesn't work with the EOS M3. And it's not just an auto-focus issue, or something like that, where you could ignore the problem. On my unit, it actually prevents the camera from working at all... On the bright side, Tamron is aware of the issue, and is currently working on a solution. However, it has been almost 2 months since they said anything, so who knows how long it will be before the issue is fixed. Here is a link to Tamron's website regarding the issue: http://www.tamron.co.jp/en/news/release_2015/0327_2.html

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great on my M3 Sharp, pretty much through the range (I wouldn't hesitate at any FL), fast focusing, light, 11 times zoom range, super steady VC, great build. I have been using the 5DmkIII/28-300L combo for a few years now as my travel/walkabout setup. It's huge and it's heavy but gives amazing results...My M3/18-200 combo has basically replaced it...IQ is very very similar (I can't really tell the difference in post) ***Mine came with firmware that works fine on my Canon M3.***

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens Optics are great, I also have a Canon 28-300L I use on my 5DmkIII, this little Tamron creates as good of results as the L..The Tamron build is okay, its a solid little lens but the zoom ring is a little stiff for me (not dampened like a high end lens) AF and VC is awesome and the size is just about as big as I'd go on my M3. The firmware worked great out of the box, no issues with my M3 at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best walk around lens for the M3 There are very few things not to like about this lens paired with the Canon M3. It covers the range of the 18-55 and 55-200 in one package. Build quality is superior to the 55-200 and autofocus in most situations is on par with the native Canon lens. The extreme zoom range and build quality come at the expense of a bit of weight, but it's not a deal breaker. At 6.3 max aperture at 200mm it's not a particularly fast lens and autofocus will hunt in low light. Coupled with the fly by wire manual focus it makes it a bit impractical for low light indoor work. As ALL my photography is some form of nature based shooting I couldn't care less about that. For me it's the perfect lens for exploring new locations as you will always have a focal length to suit almost all situations. All in all, I love it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful lens - but will NOT function at all w/the EOS M3 This is a wonderfully constructed lens and a good match for the kit lenses that Canon provides with the M series of cameras. But please note: As of this writing - 4 September 2015 - the lens will absolutely not function (everything will be dead) if attached to the EOS M3. Tamron is aware of this, but they've not acted at all on this, which is a shame. So to see this lens listed as an accessory under the EOS M3 camera is misleading. It's just fine for the M and M2.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the lens Canon should have made This is a solidly built, nicely made lens. Fit and finish are very good. The lens mount is metal, locks up smoothly and correctly. The zoom and focus rings are nicely ribbed rubber. The zoom ring rotation is a bit tight, but smooth.Back to back comparisons w/ Canon EF-M 18-55 STM and EF-S 55-250 STM:Autofocus seems about par w/ both Canons. Image Stabilization (VC) does not seem as good as the 55-250 at the long end when hand held. Optically about par, although the 55-250 seems to have the edge. These comparisons were done w/ grossly cropped photos, far beyond what any sane person would do, otherwise the difference would be hard to discern.Although the Canon lenses perform very well, the Tamron was purchased so only one lens was needed which gets the M back to what it was intended to be: a compact quality system

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Travel Lens! I know the Canon EF-M 18-150mm is out however, Tamron is about 2 years ahead and still offers you an additional 50mm on the long end (not to mention a 6 Year Warranty). The autofocus is good, images are sharp, and works wonders on vacation and spur of the moment photoshoots! I also love using the M3 and this lens with off-camera flashes. It's nothing like utterly surprising potential customers when you are able to quickly achieve great results from a smaller package! It is a tad front heavy on my M3 however, I've gotten used to it and the results are beyond worth it. This is the kind of lens you'd want to have on your Canon mirrorless camera. This lens has served me very well on my M3 (as well as my previous M2) and is a perfect lens for a strobist photographer on vacation! I can't wait to see how this lens will work on the M5!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Superzoom for EOS M I've only had the lens a week or so but am very impressed with the quality of the shots I am getting from it over its whole range 18mm-200mm. I originally wanted a 55mm-200mm but was disappointed in the Canon design (plastic bayonet mount, so so reviews) which is not available in the US anyway. The Tamron 18-200mm does a darn good job over the whole range (examples Tamron in flickr group Canon EOS M & M2 - mirrorless). I think it will be perfect travel lens with one superzoom lens covering everything and doing a good job with daytime wildlife photographs. Although probably as big a lens as I would want on the EOS M, it is light weight enough and well-balanced. Construction looks very good, (metal bayonet mount). The focus is as fast as my Canon lenses, or faster, and the VC image stabilization is extremely good, perhaps better than that on the Canon 18-55mm. I strongly recommend it but for a thorough professional review see dustinabbott.net which influenced me to buy it. Everything I've seen so far is quite consistent with that review with its strong recommendation.
