Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Tamron's original development of proprietary core technologies such as Aspherical element production, Multiple Cam Mechanism and Integrated Focus Cam design lend to the creation of the world's lightest, most compact 11x zoom lens made for digital SLR cameras.

AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di II Highlights

Di II
Lenses are designed for exclusive use on digital cameras with smaller-size imagers and inherit all of the benefits of our Di products. These lenses are not designed for conventional cameras and digital cameras with image sensors larger than 24mm x 16mm.

Extra Refractive Index Glass (XR)
Tamron AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di II at Amazon.com
Special glass for better performance and more compact lens designs
Extra Refractive Index (XR) glass can bend light rays at steeper angles, thereby decreasing the physical length of the lens while enhancing imaging performance by minimizing optical aberrations. This has allowed Tamron to develop a line of shorter, smaller-diameter, lighter lenses without sacrificing lens speed, and actually upgrading image quality compared to older designs. XR glass is costlier than conventional glass but it yields enhanced optical power distribution, making possible many of the outstanding and innovative lens designs that bear the XR designation. XR glass, with its superior light-bending power, makes it possible to design a short-barrel lens with the same light-gathering ability (aperture value) as a long-barrel lens—even with a smaller lens diameter. By using this principle Tamron has been able to shorten the length of the entire optical system and produce lighter, more compact lenses of the same speed, and also to provide greater zoom ranges in lenses that are much more convenient to carry by hand.

Low Dispersion (LD)
Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens help reduce chromatic aberration; the tendency of light of different colors to come to different points of focus at the image plane. Chromatic aberration reduces the sharpness of an image, but glass with an extremely lowdispersion index, has less of a tendency to separate (defract) a ray of light into a rainbow of colors. This characteristic allows the lens designer to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration at the center of the field (on axis), a particular problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto end of the zoom range), and for lateral chromatic aberration (towards the edges of the field) that often occurs at short focal lengths (the wide-angle end of the zoom range.)

Low Dispersion (LD) Glass for Greater Lens Sharpness

Internal Focus (IF)
Internal focusing (IF) provides numerous practical benefits to photographers including a non-rotating front filter ring that facilitates the positioning of polarizing and graduated filters, and more predictable handling because the lens length does not change during focusing. Even more important, Tamron’s Internal Focusing (IF) system provides a much closer minimum focusing distance (MFD) throughout its entire focusing range. In addition, IF improves optical performance by minimizing illumination loss at the corners of the image field, and helps to suppress other aberrations that become more troublesome at different focusing positions.

Zoom Lock
Another original Tamron mechanical engineering concept is the Zoom Lock (ZL), a simple convenience feature that prevents undesired extension of the lens barrel when carrying the camera/lens unit on a neck strap.

Product Description

The AF 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di-II is a high power zoom lens made for exclusive use with digital SLR cameras. The lens inherits the qualities and concepts of the existing AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di. It covers a powerful zoom range that is the 35mm film camera equivalent to a 28-300mm* on a digital SLR camera with a APS-C size imager. The lens provides the convenience of handling many photographic scenes and the capability of shooting ultra wide-angle to ultra telephoto shots without changing lenses. Tamron uses three hybrid aspherical lens elements and two LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements to achieve effective compensation of on-axis and lateral chromatic aberrations, a critical factor that enhances the optical quality of digital photography. Systematic countermeasures against ghosting and flare, annoying factors in digital photography, are also adopted with new technologies such as "Internal Surface coatings" and new multiple-layered coating technology for ordinary elements. In addition, the Minimum Focus Distance is 45cm (17.7") so you will be able to enjoy close-up (macro) photography of 1:3.7 at a 200mm setting.

For the price I think this is a pretty good lens considering the 18-200mm range. Currently used on a Nikon D3200...both lens and camera are new so only 2 months worth of pictures, including one vacation. Some images are slightly disappointing, something which I attribute to my lack of experience with the camera and lens. On the other hand, some images are quite good (and some excellent) considering the price of the lens. The lens can experience difficulties attempting to focus in low light conditions and focusing is a bit noisy, most noticeable on videos. Images tend to be somewhat on the soft side, although I work around that issue in post processing in Photoshop so it does not bother me so much. Image stabilization would have been nice, but I can get away without it for the money. I also have a Sigma lens 18-125 F3.8 with IS ($600CDN), and the Tamron is cheaper, smaller, lighter, faster and has a much larger focal range, all in all a more versatile lens, especially for traveling. I am not a professional and this is not a professional lens, but at this point I am happy with the results and do not regret buying it for the currently advertised price.

I have only used this item a few times. It does seem to be all that the manufacturers said it would be. I am pleased with the product but I need to really give it a good work out on a vacation.

I was trying to find a good all purpose lens that was at a great price. This fit the bill perfectly. Jack of all trades kind of lens.

I was quite reluctant to buy into some of the positive reviews as I have had other Tamron lenses for other cameras and have not been in the least impressed. For the price, this makes a very good acceptable 'walk aroundt' lens. It will stay permanently on my 'walk around' camera. The price is deceiving as I had expected less quality and depth. I am impressed!

Does not have the image clarity or quick focus that the Nikon 18-55mm lens that came with my Nikon D5100 has, but a pretty decent all in one lens. Got it for under $200 which is about 1/4 the price of the Nikon equivalent, so wasn't expecting miracles. Sometimes struggles to focus in dim lighting and certain focal lengths but overall meets my expectations

I dont have anything more to add than most other reviews have already covered. It's a great general purpose lens that fits my needs perfectly, which are taking pictures of my two kids, and some nature photography without having to worry about carrying 10 different lenses. Great lens for the price.
