Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC Overview

  • 1Description

A truly versatile lens presented in a sleek form factor, this Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC Lens is designed for DX format Nikon F mount DSLRs, where it will provide a 27-300mm equivalent focal length range. One hybrid aspherical element and one low dispersion element are incorporated into the optical design, and help to reduce distortions and aberrations throughout the zoom range for sharp, clear, and color-accurate imagery. Vibration Compensation image stabilization is integrated into the lens design, too, and helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. Additionally, a DC motor gear train AF drive module is also featured, and helps to maintain fast, accurate focusing performance that is equally smooth and quiet to benefit both stills and video applications. Complementing the expansive zoom range and refined optical design, this 18-200mm also features a moisture-resistant construction to enable working in nearly any situation.

Covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, this lens is designed for DX format Nikon F mount DSLRs and provides a 27-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Sleek profile and lightweight design make this lens suitable for everyday and travel photography.
One hybrid aspherical element and one low dispersion element help to control chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range for increased clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy.
A DC motor gear train AF drive module provides fast and quiet focusing performance that is suitable for both still photography and movie recording applications.
VC image stabilization helps to control the effects of camera shake to better enable working in low lighting or with longer shutter speeds.
Moisture-resistant construction helps to protect the lens when working in inclement conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.

    Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC Reviews

    18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC Lens for Nikon F is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 60.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this lens! I was looking for a lens for my trip to Machu Picchu and didn't want to carry my 18-55 & 55-200 Nikon bundle. Hesitant at first, i decided to take the risk and purchased it. It was the best decision i made for the trip (well, besides the decision to visit MP, of course). It's an universal lens, i could make landscape photos as well as zoom in when needed. The colors turned out beautiful and pictures are very sharp. I think i got even better results with Tamron than with Nikon...... The only thing Tamron was not so good at is macro photography, but on the other hand - i had no grandiose expectations, it's not a macro lens. Overall, i highly recommend this product. It's perfect for travel and instances where you need to change between wide angle and telephoto. And the price will not bankrupt you either.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great replacement for my damaged 18-55 mm kit-lens Ever since discovering that my D5100 kit lens had developed fungus inside due to an extended period of no use, I was on the lookout for a more versatile lens to continue my initial foray into photography. Limited to a very few lenses due to my small budget and since none of my photography was going to be anything more than a casual hobby, I decided to get this new Tamron lens which not only replaced my kit-lens, but also gave me extra zoom for any new experiments on my holiday in San Francisco. I've used this lens on my weekend walks around town and found it to be more than apt. It has a really good range, focuses fast in adequate light and comes with a hood which has helped keep out the sun interfering with my shots. Its almost identical to the Nikon 18-55 kit lens in weight and dimensions and snugly fits into my top-loading Lowepro camera bag. The VC on this lens is good and I've not had any problem of blurry pics at zooms around 200 mm. I'm highly satisfied with my purchase and would definitely recommend it to any casual photography enthusiasts out there looking for some extra zoom or those looking to replace their kit-lens with a not-so-expensive alternative.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good lens for the money... but to make things clear: I am not a professional photographer, however I've been enjoying photography for the past 6 years, and I am an advanced user. I use the Nikon system and I love the versatility zoom lenses give you. I only use cropped sensors so I have owned over time 3 mega zooms, the Nikon 18-200, the sigma 18-250, and now recently the Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC. I have mostly used the lenses just for travel photography. I even pre ordered the lens and just got it in time for my trip. At $250, it is a good lens for the price here is the good: Very light lens, easy to use, very good zoom range, focus speed is adequate here is the bad: It is a soft lens (softer than the Nikon and sigma) Pictures have a bluish cast to them overall it is a good lens, and with a $250 price tag, it is difficult to ignore, most people will not see difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I waslooking for!! this is a keeper. I now use my Nikon D5000 much more now than I did since I don't have to change lens so often. I was using my point shoot when taking shots of my grankids becaue of having to change lens. it's never a easy job changing lens with small kids all around. Very good image quality might not be as good as a Nikon lens but to the lay person they will be more than pleased.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lens for an all-in-one solution. Nice Price Too. Like many Nikon users I had the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm lenses for my D5500. After a while I got fed up with having to take two lenses. I sometimes made the wrong choice of taking one or the other on hikes. I saw this Tamron 18-200mm and the price and performance looked well in the online reviews. Upon receiving it I loved the metal construction of how it felt. It was bit hefty but weighs less than carrying two lenses and bags for them. It came well packaged with all the manuals and with a free lens hood which is a great. All in all, the performance for me is great. Not the fastest lens but works well. The auto focus can take some effort to do its job but not too bad. The lock switch is great to prevent it from creeping when you're walking or hiking. The VC feature is nice and really does make difference when you decide to shoot a steady shot but obviously wont replace a tripod. I have been using this lens for about 3 months and it has made it possible to take my camera everywhere. I did buy a filter to protect the front element. Really see myself keeping this lens for long time. Also, the GorillaPod SLR will hold up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just got this lens Aug 25 I just got it and didn't have time to take a lot of shots. I did both inside with flash and outside landscapes. I was well pleased with what I saw so far. I will update later as I have time to take more shots. It feels a bit heavy but think that is normal after being use to the standard lens. It seems well constucted and did not feel or look cheap. so far I am happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific lens for a terrific price As an amateur photographer, this lens is exactly what I need and want - it does everything well and the vibration control is terrific, even if it tends to drain the battery. For travel photography, it's a one-stop-shop and produces great quality images at all focal lengths. After cleaning up the images in Lightroom, the images were nearly indistinguishable from my old Nikon lens (which only went up to 135mm or so). The only negative is that when zoomed in with short depth of field, some of the things in the background take a round kind of shape, but I doubt this slight effect would have any impact on any non-pro's photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update to previous review. I bought this lens specifically for a trip to Scotland. It is the only lens I used on the trip. Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling. It was absolutely perfect given its price point! When compared to a lens with a hefty price tag, of course it falls short. But not much! It allowed me to carry a small bag that fit it attached to a d7000. This was nice as I also needed a small backpack for other items since trains and walking were our modes of transportation. Bumped around a little and still as good as new. Absolutely cannot go wrong with this lens!

    Does this lens have a macro feature?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    No. A true macro lens will offer 1:1 reproduction at the minimum focus distance. Some lenses are called macro because they have a shorter than normal minimum focus distance. This lens does not reproduce 1:1 and it's minimum focus distance is 1.61'. When used with extension tubes, the focus distance can be significantly reduced thus producing a macro effect. This lens has a Nikon mount. See here a link to the proper extension tubes.

    Will this lens work with the Nikon D3400 camera?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes it will. But it is a soft lens, not very sharp. Its good for family events and kids birthdays, I would never think of using this lens for professional use.
