The Tamron 50-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD is remarkably compact with a length of just 18.3cm and a light weight of 1.155g but provides unparalleled high performance at all focal lengths. In spite of the high magnification ratio, high image quality is delivered across the entire 50-400mm range through the effective arrangement of special lens elements. Equipped with Tamron’s VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism that offers excellent quietness and responsiveness, plus Tamron’s proprietary image stabilization mechanism VC (Vibration Compensation), the lens delivers versatile capability for all shooting scenarios.
Because the Tamron 50-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD provides up to one-half life-size magnification during close focus, users can enjoy the world of half-macro photography with excellent close-up shooting capabilities, with an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 25cm at the 50mm end. The filter size is 67mm, the same as most other Tamron lenses for mirrorless cameras, providing greater convenience when using multiple lenses together.
The lens also features ergonomic features that support comfortable shooting, such as the adoption of a new lens design with improved texture and operability, and a Connector Port for the dedicated Tamron Lens UtilityTM originally and uniquely developed by Tamron. In addition, for this Tamron 50-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD, Tamron Lens Utility newly offers a ‘Focus Limiter’ function. An optional Arca-Swiss compatible accessory tripod mount is available for convenience when using a tripod. All in all, the Tamron 50-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD is a highly portable, versatile zoom lens that ensures users never miss a shooting opportunity, from the 50mm standard focal length up to the 400mm ultra-telephoto. This is a breakthrough product that creates an entirely new category of ultra-telephoto-mirrorless zoom lenses, another first for Tamron.
