Overview

18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD Lens

Wide-angle through ultra-telephoto. All-in-one. The world’s first 16.6x zoom lens for ASP-C mirrorless cameras.

An all-in-one lens that zooms from wide-angle to ultra-telephoto for Sony E and FUJIFILM X-mount

Finally, a zoom that lets you shoot everything from ultra-telephoto to wide-angle, without changing lenses. The 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD (Model B061) is an all-in-one zoom lens for Sony E and FUJIFILM X-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras. It is the first lens in the world for APS-C mirrorless cameras with a zoom ratio of 16.6x and 18-300mm focal length range (the full-frame equivalent of 27-450mm).

Zooming from wide-angle to ultra-telephoto, it covers a broad array of shooting situations, including landscape, sports, wildlife, snapshots, and portraits. The lens’s compact design makes it easy to carry every day, and it is ideal for travel and family activities. With a 0.15m (5.9 in) MOD (Minimum Object Distance) at the wide end and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2, it lets you photograph subjects with a unique perspective. In addition, autofocus is very fast and accurate thanks to its precise, high speed VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism. And for steady shots, it is equipped with TAMRON’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) system. This all-in-one zoom lens makes photography more fun because you can use it in an unlimited number of situations. It’s so versatile, it will inspire you to push your creativity further and further.

18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD (Model B061), a versatile zoom lens for mirrorless

The most exciting feature of this lens is its 16.6x zoom ratio. It is the first APS-C mirrorless camera lens in the world to achieve this extreme. Its 18-300mm range provides the full-frame equivalent of 27-450mm. From ultra-telephoto photography taking advantage of lens compression, to wide-angle photography that captures vast landscapes, this lens supports many different types of photographic expression. The lens’s very compact design weighs approximately 620g (21.9oz). Plus, like most of TAMRON’s other lenses for mirrorless cameras, the filter size is unified at 67mm. The lens is easy to handle in any situation, and ideal to carry around all day.

Best-in-class autofocus that’s fast and precise, you’ll never miss a shot

The 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD is a zoom lens with speed, precision and responsiveness that ranks at the top of all-in-one zoom lens category, due in part to TAMRON’s VXD linear motor focus mechanism. Even at the ultra-telephoto focal length of 300mm (the full-frame equivalent of 450mm), it glides into focus comfortably from the minimum distance to infinity. Its focus tracking is so effective that it allows you to capture decisive moments when photographing insects, animals, vehicles or other moving subjects. Since it directly drives a group of lens elements to focus without using gears, the lens is exceptionally quiet. The linear motor suppresses drive noise making this lens ideal for shooting both still photos and video in environments that demand silence.

Maximum magnification ratio is 1:2, absolutely amazing for an all-in-one zoom lens

At the 18mm wide end, the lens attains an MOD of 0.15m (5.9 in) and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2. With an amazing working distance of 5mm (0.2 in), you can get as close as you want to your subject while capturing the background. This opens the doors for a style of expression that is exclusive to wide macro photography. When shooting with an MOD of 0.15m (5.9 in) at the wide end, the distance between the subject and the front tip of the lens is approximately 5mm (0.2 in). Use precaution so that the front element does not touch the subject when shooting at MOD.

Uncompromising optical performance throughout the entire zoom range

The 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD is a high-resolution all-in-one zoom lens created through TAMRON’s persistent pursuit of outstanding image quality. The optical construction includes several special lens elements, specifically four LD (Low Dispersion) and three hybrid aspherical lens elements. These elements help to produce clear, sharp images from the center to the corners. Chromatic aberration and other optical aberrations are well corrected. In addition, the BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) Coating suppresses ghosting and flare, which commonly occur in backlit scenes. Throughout the entire zoom range, the 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD provides both high image quality and soft creamy bokeh.

Equipped with TAMRON’s proprietary VC

This lens incorporates TAMRON’s proprietary VC mechanism to minimize the effect of camera-shake, which is likely to occur in the telephoto range. It displays its ability to perform when shooting handheld under low-light conditions such as indoor or when shooting at night. It effectively reduces the degradation of picture quality. Using AI technologies, the lens will choose the compensation characteristic for videography at focal lengths of 70mm or less.

Additional Features:

Circular aperture to produce a smooth-edged bokeh

A 7-blade diaphragm is configured to retain a smooth, circular-shaped aperture opening even when stopped down by two stops from the wide-open aperture. This produces a smooth-edged bokeh in background highlights.

Moisture-Resistant Construction protects your lens

For greater protection when shooting outdoors, leak-resistant seals throughout the lens barrel help protect your equipment.

BBAR-G2 Coating delivers stunning clarity and contrast

TAMRON has long been an innovator of coating technologies that prevent ghosting and flare. Second-generation BBAR-G2 Coating is a groundbreaking advancement that provides vastly improved performance compared to the original BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating. The coating corrects for ghosting and flare to an unprecedented extent and renders fine subject detail with true clarity and stunning contrast even under backlit conditions.

Fluorine Coating for protection and safe cleaning

The front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water- and oil-repellant. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture, and fingerprints.

Zoom Lock switch

The 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 VC VXD has a switch that can lock the zoom ring at the 18mm focal length if desired. This prevents the unwanted extension of the lens barrel due to the weight of the lens during transportation.
