Tamron AF 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 Di III VC

The compact size of the Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III VC Lens allows users to easily enjoy shooting across the whole range - from wide-angle to full telephoto - allowing you to slim down your packing to one camera and one lens. Featuring a striking appearance befitting the NEX series design, the lens is available in silver and black.

Equipped with Tamron's acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation), and thanks to its light weight and compact size, this lens allows easy handheld shooting of sharp images with no camera shake over a wide range of settings, from everyday snapshots to memorable travel scenes. The AF drive has a stepping motor that is optimal for the Contrast-detection AF system employed by NEX series cameras. This has also enabled improvements in AF performance when shooting video. In addition, ease of operation is enhanced with the Direct Manual Focus (DMF) function, which allows the user to make fine manual adjustments after initially focusing by AF.

The focal length coverage is 18-200mm. Converted to the coverage of the 35mm format, this is equivalent to a range of 27mm wide-angle up to 300mm full telephoto. This allows the user to take wide-angle shots of expansive landscapes and powerful telephoto images that enlarge the details of distant subjects-all with one lens. In addition, by setting the lens at the telephoto end (200mm) and moving in to the minimum focus distance of 0.5m, flower petals, jewellery and other small objects can be shot as expanded close-ups.
