The Tamron 18-400mm has a bright f/3.5-6.3 maximum aperture. In my tests, I found this to be very good. It is a little slower at the wide end, but it’s great for shooting at f/8. You will need to stop down a little to f/16 for optimal results, but this gives a nice range of light-gathering power and nice bokeh.


The Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di VC HLD comes in two versions, one with VC (Vibration Compensation) and one without. I tested the VC version and found it worked pretty well, though you do need to turn on the VC function before each shot. The VC function helps reduce the effect of camera shake.

The Tamron 18-400mm is an all-manual lens. The lens has no electronic focusing, so manual focus is essential. When I first saw this lens, I thought the lens was a little too bulky. I’m glad I held onto my old Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3, which is just as long but weighs in at only 1.6 pounds. It’s a much more compact and attractive design.

The Tamron 18-400mm does not have any zoom lock, so it’s a manual focus-only lens. The Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di VC HLD has a tripod mount.

Lens Types:

The Tamron 18-400mm is a non-interchangable lens. The lens uses 77 elements in 27 groups and the overall length is 4.9 by 3.1 inches (HD) when retracted. It’s fairly heavy, at 1.6 pounds, and supports 72mm front filters.

Bottom Line:

The Tamron 18-400mm f/2.3 Di II VC HLD is a great lens for travel photographers, photo enthusiasts, and professional photographers who want a zoom range that’s not too short and not too long. It’s also a great choice for anyone who wants to shoot sports, action, wildlife, and events.
