The Tamron 18-400 F3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD is an extremely flexible lens equivalent to a 22x zoom. When mounted on a Canon APS-C body, it is equivalent to 29-640mm, while on Nikons it's 27-600mm. The lens has a total of 16 elements, including low dispersion and aspherical. Its 'HLD' motor is compact and responsive, according to Tamron. It also has Vibration Compensation stabilization, which reduces shake by up to 2.5 stops. The lens is surprisingly small at 4.9in/124mm long and 3.1in/79mm in diameter. It weighs a little over 700g/25oz and is moisture-resistant.
The 18-400 is available for both Canon and Nikon crop-sensor bodies.
