Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

Spanning an impressive wide-angle to super-telephoto range, the Nikon F-mount 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD from Tamron is a true all-in-one lens to suit photographing the widest of vistas to the details of wildlife. Designed for DX-format DSLRs, this 27-600mm equivalent lens uses a three-step extension design to maintain a compact and lightweight form factor despite its expansive reach. In regard to the optics, a series of aspherical and low dispersion elements help to correct various aberrations and distortion for consistent sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range.

Benefitting the reach and optical layout, this lens also features an HLD autofocus motor that delivers quick and responsive focusing performance that is also quiet to benefit video recording needs. Vibration Compensation is also featured, which corrects for up to 2.5 stops of camera shake to help deliver sharper imagery when shooting handheld. Additionally, supporting this 18-400mm's all-in-one designation, a moisture-resistant construction ensures its use in trying environmental conditions.

All-in-one zoom is designed for Nikon F-mount DX-format DSLRs, and provides a 27-600mm equivalent focal length range.
Two molded glass aspherical elements and one hybrid aspherical element help to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range to deliver notable sharpness and accurate rendering.
Three low dispersion elements suppress chromatic aberration and color fringing to realize improved clarity and color accuracy.
HLD (High/Low torque modulated Drive) motor delivers fast, precise, and responsive focusing performance that benefits both stills and video applications. The motor's design and circular arc shape also contributes to the lens's compact overall form factor.
Vibration Compensation helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake by up to 2.5 stops for sharper imagery when shooting handheld.
An electromagnetic diaphragm is used for more precise and consistent exposure control, especially when shooting at high continuous shooting rates.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Moisture-resistant construction enables this lens's use during inclement weather conditions.
Both the zoom and focus rings are textured for improved grip and, additionally, a Zoom Lock mechanism prevents the zoom from accidentally extending when not in use.
Compatible with optional TAP-in Console for fine-tuning select focusing adjustments and for updating lens firmware.

    Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 reviews

    18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD Lens for Nikon F is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Was Looking For! Since i am getting up in years, I am 74, I was looking to basically downsize my camera gear. I wanted one lens that would be the only lens I had to carry on trips, or just going out shooting. I did research, looked at several lens, Nikon, Sigma, Tokina, and finally decided on the Tamron. The range, going from 18 to 400 mm is perfect for me, and my Nikon D5300. The picture quality is better than I expected, in all focal lengths. It focuses fast and accurate. It is very light, attached to my D5300, complete with battery, the weight is a little over 3 pounds. I love it, and I would certainly recommend it to my friends, and to anyone looking for a good, light weight lens. Yes, I would buy it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around lens I've used I shoot almost everything from sports, wildlife, landscapes etc. I have used this lens for a week now and have shot several thousand images and I have to say that the image quality is excellent. The focus is fast and accurate. The dynamic range matches that of much more expensive lens. This lens is on my Nikon D7000 (crop sensor) and it performs amazingly well. Simply put, in my opinion the Tamron 18-400mm is the best all around lens that I have ever used so far. Well worth the price. So much so that my husband is going to get one as soon as he cleans out his camera bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tamron tight Arrived on time from B&H photo. Immediately put the lens to work on my Nikon1 v2 w/an ft1 lens mount adapter and also with my Nikon d3300. I noted fairly quickly that the zoom ring is very tight/slow to manipulate by hand. In burst mode, the lens lagged when shooting birds on the go. I also noted that, in order to obtain clarity with macro, I had to manually zoom out and back in again when changing subjects. Not a pro photographer, so, perhaps there's a learning curve when operating the Tamron 18-400mm. Optimistically...my fingers are crossed...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Zoom Range ! Excellent travel lens with a unbelievable zoom range from 18mm to 400mm (27mm-600mm on my Nikon D7200 body). I have included two pictures, taken from the same position illustrating this range. Lens seems very well constructed, not overly large. Zoom ring is very wide, a nice feature but is somewhat stiff turning between 50mm to 200mm. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the pictures at all focal lengths, not prime lens quality but exceptional considering the available zoom range of this lens. Overall a great addition to my lens collection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens This is a great lens ---- especially for the price. �I bought it for a Nikon camera and have been very happy with the results I've gotten. �The two shots I've attached are handheld with VC switched on. �The lens seems to be sharpest at around f/8. �The lens is very well made and it's not too big or heavy. �The zoom and focus rings move smoothly. �The only negative I have is with the hood; it seems a little fragile, but that's not a big deal. �I own another Tamron lens (70-200mm f/2.8 G2) that I use with my Nikon D850 and it's great too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wanted extra reach I have been using the Tamron 16-300mm as a walk around lens and I wanted to try the 18-400 for a little extra reach. I have been out on two shoots and so far I am very happy with it. In several hundred shots I did have one instance where I got an error message and had to reboot the camera. I have had some adjusting to holding the lens as it auto focuses. My hand is in the way but that is just getting used to a new lens. The weight is a bit heavier than my other Tamron lens but I am still able to manage as a woman in her senior years. It works well with my Nikon D7200. I was impressed with the macro as well as the distance shots. I would definitely recommend this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where Have You Been All My Life?! For my travel photography I'd been waiting for a lens of this zoom range (22x) and quality for a long, long time.� Although it's not one of the Tamron "SP" lenses, I'm impressed with the picture quality.� The build quality is really good and it feels good and looks impressive.� And, as an added bonus, it's weather sealed! 2.5 stops vibration compensation is good - would have liked 4 stops especially at 400mm� (600mm equivalent on a crop-sensor Nikon) - but I can deal with it by using some basic bracing techniques if necessary. It's a little heavy (1.5 lbs) but for me that weight actually helps me keep the camera steadier. For my travel and general shooting needs, it's the perfect all-in-one lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I love this lens. I am so so glad that I bought it. it covers the range that I need. The only small gripes I have about it is the zooming past 100mm or so is a little hard but gets easier and the other being the way to turn the lens to zoom in (only because I am so used to sigma lenses) but those are small things and you get used to them over time, like you do with anything. Over all I absolutely Love this lens. Thank you for selling it to me.I totally recommend this
