Key Features
  • High-Powered 18-200mm Zoom Lens
  • Designed for Use With Sony NEX Cameras
  • Stepping Motor for Improved AF
  • Lightweight 16.2 oz Lens
The Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III VC Lens for Sony E Mount Cameras (Black) made for the Sony E mount camera system incorporates a stepping motor that is optimal for the contrast-detection AF system of Sony mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. This will also improve AF when shooting video. With the motor built into the lens, focusing will be quieter and more responsive.

The 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC is a high power zoom lens designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras using the more compact (APS-C) digital size image sensors. The focal length of this lens is equivalent to approx. 27-300mm in 35mm format.

Designed as an "all-in-one" lens, it meets almost all photographic opportunities without changing lenses.

The 18-200mm zoom lens realizes an MFD (Minimum Focus Distance) of 1.5' (45 cm) over the entire zoom range by the employment of a new optical/mechanical design configuration. Since the maximum magnification ratio at f=200mm is 1:3.7, you can enjoy close-up photography easily and conveniently.

Note:
Di-II lenses cannot be used with digital SLR cameras using image sensors that are larger than that of an APS-C size imager, or with 35mm film SLR cameras.
High-power 18-200mm lightweight and compact zoom lens weighing 460g with a 62mm filter is designed for the Sony mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera series. Equipped with Tamron's acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation), the lens enables easy handheld shooting from 18mm wide angle to 200mm full telephoto.
Striking appearance worthy of the Sony mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera series design.
Stepping motor adopted for the AF drive, a construction that accommodates contrast-detection AF and shooting video.
The autofocus mechanism uses a stepping motor that is an ideal match for the contrast-detection AF system used in Sony mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera series. The stepping motor's actuator allows finely tuned control of angular rotation, and since it drives the focusing mechanism directly without an intermediate reduction gear, it also provides superbly quiet performance.
The Vibration Compensation (VC) mechanism employs a three-coil system, whereby three driving coils activate the shake-compensating VC lens group electromagnetically via three steel balls. The VC lens elements are held in place only by contact with the steel balls, achieving smooth movement with little friction. This provides a stable viewfinder image with excellent tracking performance that eliminates the blur from handheld shots for cleaner, crisper shots. The VC has a moving magnet system with heavy magnets in the vibration-compensating lens--the new VC mechanism adopts a lightweight moving coil system that reduces the load on the drive system. This allows the drive to be operated with smaller coils and magnets, reducing the weight and size for the entire VC unit.

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

This is one value for money lens!

The range! The price! Can't be beat. Though this lens is a bit hefty in weight, that's to be expected with all that glass inside.

Excellent Product

The Tamron 18-200mm lens is a great product. I use it on an M50. I carry an extender that allows me to focus on insects and small flowers only a few inches away. 200mm is a minimum for a telephoto lens but it performs well. It is a much better investment than the similar Canon EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM.

easy to use

The Tamron is a new lens but so far I like it. more compact than my previous telephoto lens and so far very sharp at different settings.

Unfortunately...

This lens says EF Mount and it doesn't fit my canon 5D mark 4. I think the name is not correct.

Manual Zoom in/out feel :I

I want to be able to zoom in and out while filming- With this lens -it doesn't feel smooth enough. It doesn't seem to be built for that.

I like it...

This is a fine vacation/travel lens. It's compact, light, well built, sharp and has decent autofocus. I would give it five stars but lack of a manual focus switch on the lens is a major defect, in my opinion.

Nice Walk-around Lens

I am not an expert, but I have found this lens to be a solid walk-around lens on my a5100. It's inexpensive, allows me to capture both landscapes and decent wildlife pics. The focus can hunt a little now and then, and it's not going to be as sharp as more expensive lenses, but I can actually shove this lens and my camera into a large jacket pocket, which means it's there when I want to get the shot.

Great focal range, ok image quality

By Donald

This lens is "ok." It's standout feature is cramming a large focal range into a very compact package, and it does this very well. It's also fairly well made, solid and heavy for its size. I was not blown away by the image quality. It is decent enough for things that will be viewed on small format social media, but will struggle to produce images that will impress in larger formats or that will withstand aggressive cropping. If avoiding lens changes is more of a priority than superlative image quality, this lens may fit the bill.
