A sleek and versatile ultra-telephoto zoom lens, the Tamron 50-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras is an ideal choice for photographing landscapes, wildlife, sports, portraiture, and more. Featuring an 8x zoom ratio that begins at 50mm, this remarkably compact and portable lens offers a length of just 7.2" making it the same size as conventional 100-400mm zoom lenses.
Closeup Capabilities
In addition to its ultra-telephoto capabilities, the lens is well-suited for macro photography as well. With a minimum focusing distance of just 9.8" at the 50mm end, the 50-400mm provides up to one-half life-size magnification for closeup shooting.
Autofocus and Vibration Compensation
The VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism delivers fast, quiet, and precise autofocus.

VC (Vibration Compensation) system reduces camera shake and facilitates shooting at longer focal lengths and slower shutter speeds.
Updatable for Modern Times
For staying up-to-date and customizing your lens for maximum performance, the lens features a USB Type-C connector port for Tamron Lens Utility software, which enables you to customize functions and update the firmware for the lens by using a computer.
Intuitive Handling and Design
  • Rapid zoom ring and zoom lock switch.
  • Compatibility with many camera-specific features and functions, including Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF.
  • Moisture-resistant design and fluorine coating to effectively repel dust, water droplets, fingerprints, and dirt.
  • 67mm front filter size, the same as most other TAMRON mirrorless lenses, provides greater convenience when using multiple lenses together.
  • Optional Arca-type accessory tripod mount for ease of use when using a tripod.

Being a third party lens, does this lens' vibration compensation work together with camera's IBIS to improve the VC overall?
Asked by: Jose
Tamron 50-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD Lens for Sony E will work together with the IBIS on certain cameras, but it doesn't really improve the amount of stops that you can hand hold. That function is only available on the Sony A7rm5 and certain Sony lenses as seen here: https://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/www/cscs/function/compatibility.php?fnc=1002&area=gb&lang=en&ref=1
