Beat This: 18-250mm Zoom Lens from Tamron

Tamron AF18-250

Now, there’s an even longer zoom lens for your digital SLR camera: the new Tamron AF18-250mm F/3.5-6.3 Di-II LD Aspherical (IF) Macro lens, a lightweight, compact and ultra high power zoom lens for cameras with APS-C sized imager sensors.

It’s a breakthrough of sorts, having extended the telephoto length of the popular 18-200mm all-in-one zoom to 250mm. The Tamron AF18-250mm offers a 388mm ultra telephoto focal length (diagonal angle of view of 6° 23′) when converted to the 35mm film format.

Yet with this astonishing 13.9X zoom power the new lens adds only a mere 0.2mm more in its maximum diameter and just 0.6mm in overall length.

The highly versatile Tamron 18-250mm telephoto lens is compatible with Canon AF, Sony/Maxxum AF-D, Nikon AF-D and Pentax/Samsung AF mounts.
