Tamron AF 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di-II LD (IF) for SONY ALPHA, With 6-Year USA Warranty

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
This AF 18-200mm lens is designed exclusively for digital cameras with small sensors, . The wide to tele capabilities of this lens, which is equivalent to 28 - 300 mm in 35mm terms, means that you should seldom need to change lenses.
 

The new AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di-II LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO is a high power zoom lens for exclusive use with digital (APS-C size) SLR cameras that inherits the product concept of the existing AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR zoom lens. Even two years after its introduction, the current AF28-300mm is still a much loved and highly evaluated by photographers around the world as a representative model of high power zoom lenses.

With the market influx of digital SLR cameras in recent years, the use of high power zoom lenses has become increasingly popular since high power zooms provide the convenience of handling many photographic scenes and the capability of shooting ultra telephoto shots without changing lenses. The popularity of this focal length led Tamron to initiate the development of new zoom lenses to further meet the needs of digital SLR photographers. The result is the successful development of a new zoom lens exclusively for use on digital SLR cameras. The wide to ultra tele focal range of this lens will allow digital SLR camera owners to enjoy digital photography with comfort and convenience.

Dedicated for Digital SLR Cameras
By incorporating an optical design for exclusive use with digital (APS-C) SLR cameras, this high power zoom lens provides the focal length equivalent to Tamron's 28-300mm (when converted to a 35mm format). Therefore, you can meet almost all photographic opportunities with this single zoom lens without changing lenses. When paired with the SP AF11-18mm zoom lens, simultaneously introduced by Tamron at Photokina, you can enjoy thoroughly digital SLR photography with the combined focal length coverage of 17-300mm.

Optical System Uses Special Glass and is Optimized for Digital SLR Characteristics in order to Enhance Optical Quality in a Compact Design
The new AF18-200mm high power zoom lens from Tamron features an entirely new optical design using XR (Extra Refractive Index) glass in an innovative way in order to optimize the overall distribution of optical power throughout the entire zoom range. This design reduces various aberrations to the absolute minimum and achieves remarkable downsizing at the same time. In addition, three hybrid aspherical lens elements and two LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements are used to accomplish effective compensation of on-axis and lateral chromatic aberrations, a critical factor to enhance the optical quality in digital photography. As a result, the lens provides outstanding optical quality in a multi-purpose zoom lens.

Optical Design Dedicated to Digital SLR Photography by Optimizing the Angles of Incidences of Light Rays Reaching the Imager
The zoom lens uses a new optical system designed to confine the changing angles of incidences of light rays reaching the imager within a certain scope over the entire image field from the center to the periphery, by considering the effects of variances due to zooming.

Enhanced Peripheral Illumination
Peripheral light fall-off is minimized when compared with that of conventional lenses for film cameras so that images are uniformly bright from the center to the periphery.

Outstanding Resolution
Since the lens is designed exclusively for digital SLR photography, it provides high image quality in terms of resolution, contrast and flatness of image field.

Internal Surface Coating to Reduce Ghosting and Flare
Ghosting and flare caused by aberrations are annoying factors in digital SLR photography, so Tamron has adopted various countermeasures against the problem including the employment of "Internal Surface Coatings" (i.e., multiple-layer coatings on cemented surfaces of plural elements) and new multiple-layer coating technology on ordinary elements in order to minimize reflections that occur when light enters through the front element and to reduce image degrading effects caused by the imagers themselves.

Revolutionary MFD - 0.45m over the Entire Zoom Range for 1:3.7 Macro Capability
The new 18-200mm zoom lens realizes an MFD (Minimum Focus Distance) of 0.45m over the entire zoom range, which is better than that of the conventional 28-300mm zoom lens, 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.

High Power, Yet Compact and Lightweight Thanks to New Mechanical Artifices
Complicated mechanisms are built in the compact body thanks to new mechanical artifices. The lens is a multi-purpose zoom lens, yet excellent portability and ease of use are assured. A number of invisible engineering innovations required to downsize the lens, produce high precision parts and increase durability are incorporated in the new AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di-II Aspherical (IF) MACRO since manufacturing this type of zoom lens with such complicated mechanisms inside was almost impossible with conventional manufacturing technology.

Zoom Lock Mechanism Incorporated
The Zoom Lock prevents unwanted barrel extension when carrying the lens/camera combination.

Flower-shaped Lens Hood
A glare-reducing flower-shaped lens hood is included as a standard accessory. The special hood provides optimum shading of superfluous light rays that enter from the rectangular frame outside the image field.

New External Design Conveys "High Performance, High Precision Image" as One of the New Di-II Series
Improvements have been made to the external design by adding a gold-colored band between the focus and zoom rings to enhance the appearance and make it stand out as a Di-II lens. The rubber patterns of the zoom and focus control rings have been improved at the same time to compliment the digital camera design style and to provide better handling.

Pros: Great lens for one general lens. Easy to use and works great.
Cons: None to this point.
Other Comments: I needed a lens I could leave on and use in low light and then use outside. This filled the bill beautifully, easy to use and great pictures. Beach was great, it came fast and everything worked as it should. I will definitely use them again.

By srphotog (York, PA) October 26, 2014
Review submitted for Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 AF DI-II LD Lens f/ Nikon w/ Built-in motor, With Lightroom 5 (E4TM18200XRDINA2)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: nice usuable focal range. light weight, reasonably sharp for the money
Cons: not particularly fast but ok with modern sensors being what they are. Not designed for hard everyday use but not actually a con at this pricepoint.
Other Comments: Haven't used the lens all that much yet, but the few images I've taken appear to be reasonably sharp. I don't expect a lot from an inexpensive lens. Bought it primarily to put on my Nikon D5100 body that I keep with me in the car, figuring it is a good general all purpose focal range. Having a copy of Lightroom 5 is an added bonus.

5 out of 5 stars   Good investment so far
(Pembroke Pines, Florida) May 06, 2014
Review submitted for Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 AF DI-II LD IF Lens For Canon EOS, With 6-Year USA Warranty (TM18200XRDIEOS)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: It's a compact lens, which is good for traveling. Photo quality is very good. I was apprehensive about buying this item because it does not have image stabilizing, and because of the reduced price. I took a risk and I do not regret it so far. I don't have to waste time changing lenses. No image stabilizer, no problem. My photos still come out great! I really like the rubber grip on the outside of the lens. It feels like its very well made. And they throw in a lens hood for free. I ordered it on a Thursday night and it was on my door step Monday morning! Thank you Beach Camera for the speedy delivery at no extra cost!
Cons: The auto focus is a bit loud and a bit slow but I'm not picky! I usually use manual focus so it is not a big deal. The lens creep can be annoying but the lens lock works well.
Other Comments: I own several Canon lenses but after awhile, it gets expensive! Tamron offers quality lenses for a cheaper price. I will most likely be purchasing Tamron lenses in the future.

It costs half the price of a regular Nikon lens and doesn't sacrifice the quality even a bit. I am very pleased with the results and would highly recommend this lens to every one looking for a quality lens at a bargain. The option to buy it as a kit was again a steal. Got a good quality camera bag, tripod, 8gb memory card, a UV filter, a card reader, a card keeper and a lens keeper as a part of the kit by just paying $4 extra. Cant beat that. :)

Verified Purchaser
Pros: Decent construction, Great Walkaround Lens, Great Pictures
Cons:
Other Comments: I purchased this lens based on the many great reviews that it has recieved over the years. I have other Tamron lenses from film camera days that never dissapointed me. I have a Nikon D3100 that needs a lens with a built in focus motor and this lens does. I am using it as a replacement for the kit lens that came with the camera and even though it does not have image stabilization, the pictures are very sharp. The Nikon 18-200 VR is definately a better lens, but at approximately $800.00 for the Nikon, this lens is a real bargain for a quarter of the price.

Cons:
Other Comments: I had a Nikon D50 with two lens that didn't overlap in range and had to change in the field too often. Sometimes I wanted something in the range that wasn't covered. The 18-200 does it all and is the only lens I need. It handles easily and gives quick accurate focus. If there is a problem with the lens I have not found it yet.

Pros: Very good
Cons: none
Other Comments: The Tamron 18-200 for my Canon 10D is excellent. I have had the lens for about 3 weeks and have taken several hundred pictures, mostly indoors without a flash. I had good general lighting and use 800 to 1600 ISO. I would recommend this for any one that wants a versatile zoom at a great price and a 6 year warranty.

2 out of 5 stars   Reluctant to focus
By Lou (East TN) December 20, 2010
Review submitted for Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 AF DI-II LD IF Lens For Canon EOS, With 6-Year USA Warranty (TM18200XRDIEOS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easily Interchangeable
Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus
Other Comments: I use the lens with a Canon EOS Rebel T1i. I have two more Tamron zoom lenses, all have the same problem: only part of the pictures are in focus (see the attached sample). Often times, readjustment of the picture arrangement is necessary to get the lens to focus at all. Otherwise, it would be recommendable.

5 out of 5 stars   Great lens
By Binaya (Springport Rd, Michigan) December 06, 2010
Review submitted for Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 AF DI-II LD IF Lens For Canon EOS, With 6-Year USA Warranty (TM18200XRDIEOS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Lightweight, Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable
Cons: Poor in Low Light
Other Comments: I got this lens for my canon T2i. This being my first DSLR camera, i did not want to spend much money on lens and at the same time I was looking for getting a wide range lens. I heard about Tamron and researched. When I bought it I knew it would take time for auto focusing in low light, but I was ready to compromise. Now I got the lens and I am very happy with it. It is not good in low light but if you learn how to use manual focus in low light, it will not be that bad. This does not have Vibration Compensation, but it is great. It has got a great zoom and pictures come out really nice. You get what you pay. $100 rebate made it even better.

Review submitted for Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 AF DI-II LD Lens f/ Nikon w/ Built-in motor, 6-Yr US Warranty (TM18200XRDINA2)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Durable, Strong Construction, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Lightweight, Consistent Output
Cons:
Other Comments: For the price (after factoring in the $100 rebate), this is a far better, more versatile lens than the Nikon 55-200 VR alternative. Focuses quickly on our D5000 and takes sharp photos with great bokeh. Best all around zoom around.

4 out of 5 stars   Nice all purpose lens
By Old Dog (Huntsville Al) November 13, 2010
Review submitted for Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 AF DI-II LD IF Lens For Pentax, With 6-Year USA Warranty (TM18200XRDIPA)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Strong Construction, Nice Bokeh, Easily Interchangeable
Cons: Poor in Low Light, Lens Creep, Slow Focus
Other Comments: I purchased this lens for those occasions when I didn't want to carry my bag of lenses and knowing the range will be wide angle to long focal length. The lens have a nice feel and not too heavy for its size. It does have a zoom lock nicely positioned for the right index finger which comes in handy while carrying around. Nice plastic hood, goes on and off easily, plastic can be your friend when you bump the lens hood, plastic gives/metal hoods don't give, "ouch". Now about Performance, it does perform well with good light or outdoors with good lighting. But having a range from 18-200mm there is a sacrifice if the lighting is not that good. In low light the focus is slow or sometimes can't focus at all, image quality suffers as well, but using a flash is ok. The lens is surprisingly good at close up, I have gotten some very good close up shots with this lens. I recommend this lens for the casual photographer who doesn't like changing lenses and just want some decent images without a lot of fuss. For the price of this lens with rebate you can't go wrong giving it a try. It can not replace my bag of Takumars but it does have a home in my bag.

Pros: Well built, Good Size

Other Comments: A well built, economical, travel lens. Not the fastest lens but plenty sharp when stepped down. No drastic barrel distortion. A bit of CA when the sun is in the frame, but no more than I've seen in lenses costing 3X's as much.

Got really good action shots too. I would buy it again.
