Some additional information on the upcoming Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-5.6 Di II VC HLD all-in-one zoom lens (model B028):

The 18-400mm is a new exciting flagship lens that adds to our current line-up and exemplifies Tamron's all-in-one expertise and the options these great lenses afford photographers of all levels. This new unprecedented all-in-one is positioned as a compact ultra-tele zoom with all-in-one, wide-angle versatility for APS-C cameras. It will target enthusiasts who desire even greater ultra-tele capability for sports, wildlife and more, but also enjoy the versatility of the all-in-one lens for various photographic opportunities. Think of a 100-400mm with portrait, 1:2.9 macro, and wide angle capability for added convenience.

The 16-300mm will remain in the line for the enthusiast customer also looking for great range and versatility, but from a more compact, all-in-one lens prioritizing wide angle for travel and full range for every-day shooting and more.

      DPreview says this lens is f3.5-f6.3?

  • Eric Calabros

    You never know focus point was on tiger’s head or something behind it.

    • JXVo

      Agreed. Too much depth of field for 400mm IMO….
      That tiger shot may have been done at a shorter focal length or with a different lens altogether

      • Mr Majestyk

        Huh, even at f/6.3, 400mm will have shallow DoF, you won’t see much difference compared to the f/5.6 options.

    • Spy Black

      Could just be reference shots, not actually taken with the lens.

    • It’s definitely an odd shot to use to promote a lens.

  • T.I.M

    With 16 elements and only 72mm front filter, aperture f/5.6 at 400mm is more likely to be T/8

    • Eric Calabros

      A whole frame vignette 🙂

    So the Nikon version is not an “E” lens?
