There is one thing that the Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD does better than any other lens on the market, and that is offer a seriously impressive zoom range in a relatively compact form factor. I found it hard not to love and respect the lens for this feature alone because, for many shooters who have been craving some extra zoom from their one-lens kit, this is the only option available. Tamron has managed to bring the lens’s design into the modern day with some useful specs and functions that will make taking pictures easier and more enjoyable.

Designed for APS-C format Canon and Nikon DSLRs, this lens offers an incredible 28.8-640mm or 27-600mm equivalent focal length, respectively. Now, I must admit that even though I love my primes, it’s hard not to enjoy going so quickly from wide-angle to super-telephoto perspectives with the twist of a wrist. I do have to go into detail about the optics, however, as while it did impress me with the range, there were obviously some tradeoffs made when it came to making it work in such a small design. I noticed it was a bit soft wide open and being so dark makes it difficult to stop down unless it’s a bright day. This lens will be great for travelers, though, who will take their cameras out for a stroll on a nice day and want to make sure they can capture those scenic landscapes and faraway details without stuffing their day pack full of glass.
