Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DI III-A Overview

The 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD from Tamron is a versatile superzoom ideal for photographers who want an all-rounder that covers virtually any shooting situation. Characterized for its 16.6x zoom ratio and a minimum focus distance of only 5.9", it brings the best of Tamron's "all-in-one" philosophy to the Sony E audience at large. A fast and precise autofocus mechanism, Tamron's VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor, provides it with some of the best performance in its class, and it's aided by the proprietary Vibration Compensation system that supports stable photography even at ultra-telephoto focal lengths.

  • All-in-one zoom, engineered specifically for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, provides a 27-450mm equivalent focal length range.
  • Tamron's Vibration Compensation uses a free-floating element, controlled through two gyroscopic sensors to measure the horizontal and vertical vibrations and compensate accordingly, eliminating camera shake.
  • Two VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motors deliver impressively quiet, quick, and precise focusing performance to suit both stills and video applications. This focusing system offers a minimum focusing distance of 5.9' when fully zoomed out, and a 1:2 maximum magnification ratio at the wide end of the zoom range.
  • A weather-sealed construction benefits this lens' use in inclement conditions

Will this lens work with a Sony Alpha?

Will this lens work with a Sony Alpha?
Asked by: dianne
Unfortunately, you did not identify the model camera you own, so I cannot list a full reply concerning the lens' compatibility. That being said, if you are using a Sony Alpha interchangeable lens camera that uses the Sony E-mount and uses the APS-C sensor, then yes, the Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD Lens for Sony E would be fully compatible for use on your camera. If your camera is a Sony Alpha full-frame mirrorless digital camera that uses the Sony E-mount lens mount, then the lens will attach, but do note you would need to use the APS-C Crop Mode in the camera by going to MENU → (Camera Settings1) → [JPEG Image Size] → desired setting. Do note this will reduce the maximum resolution you may use to capture your image. Also note the Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD Lens for Sony E will not be compatible for use with Sony Alpha A-mount DSLR cameras.

Will this lens work with a Sony a7R?

Will this lens work with a Sony a7R?
Asked by: LYNN
It will work with the A7R but in "crop mode" ONLY. The sampling resolution will change from 36.4 MP to 15 MP. The effective magnification will INCREASE by 1.5X and the angle of view will DECREASE by 1.5X at any given focal length setting. Focusing range will remain the same.

Is this compatible with the Sony A7rII?

Is this compatible with the Sony A7rII?
Asked by: Jaime
The answer to this is technically yes. This lens is designed for use with crop sensor/APS-C cameras and the a7 rII is a full frame camera so you'll only be getting the crop sensor/APS-C sensor framing if you use this on a full frame.
