Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD Superzoom Lens for APS-C Sony E-Mount cameras ($699) offers a 16.6x “all-in-one” zoom ratio has a minimum focus distance of just 5.9″. A fast and precise autofocus mechanism, Tamron’s VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor, offers some of the best performance in its class, and it’s aided by the proprietary Vibration Compensation system that supports stable photography even at ultra-telephoto focal lengths.
• All-in-one zoom, engineered specifically for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, provides a 27-450mm equivalent focal length range.
• Tamron’s Vibration Compensation uses a free-floating element, controlled through two gyroscopic sensors to measure the horizontal and vertical vibrations and compensate accordingly, eliminating camera shake.
• Two VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motors deliver impressively quiet, quick, and precise focusing performance to suit both stills and video applications. This focusing system offers a minimum focusing distance of 5.9′ when fully zoomed out, and a 1:2 maximum magnification ratio at the wide end of the zoom range.
• A weather-sealed construction benefits this lens’ use in inclement conditions
