Tamronâ€™s popular AF18-250mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II LD (Model A018) now sports a built-in motor in the new Model A18N II for Nikon DSLRs. It has the same lightweight and compact build as the A018 and the same ultra high zoom power. It is designed for digital SLR cameras with APS-C sized image sensors.
While conventional 35mm film cameras required two lenses to cover 28-388mm, Tamron’s new zoom is 13.9X, probably the world’s most powerful zoom in a single compact lens.
Tamron said the new Model A18N II zoom lens will begin selling next week in Tokyo with a suggested retail price of about $650.
