Description - Tamron 18-200mm F3.8-5.6 XR DI II LD Aspherical (IF) AF lens†For†Canon
Tamron 18-200mm F3.8-5.6†lens (Model A14)†is a new high power zoom lens designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras using APS-C size image sensors. The new†Tamron 18 200mm F3.8-5.6 XR DI II LD†lens is a high power zoom lens for exclusive use with digital (APS-C size)SLR cameras that inherits the product concept of the existing AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR zoom lens. Even two years after its introduction, the current AF28-300mm is still a favorite and highly evaluated by photographers around the world as a representative model of high power zoom lenses. With the market influx of digital SLR cameras in recent years, the use of high power zoom lenses has become increasingly popular since high power zooms provide the convenience of handling many photographic scenes and the capability of shooting ultra telephoto shots without changing lenses. The popularity of this focal length led†Tamron 18-200 mm F3.8-5.6†Aspherical (IF) AF lens to initiate the development of new zoom lenses to further meet the needs of digital SLR photographers. The result is the successful development of a new zoom lens exclusively for use on digital SLR cameras. The wide to ultra tele focal range of this lens will allow digital SLR camera owners to enjoy digital photography with comfort and convenience. By incorporating an optical design for exclusive use with digital (APS-C) SLR cameras,†Tamron 18-200mm F3.8 5.6†lens provides the focal length equivalent to Tamron's 28-300mm (when converted to a 35mm format). Therefore, you can meet almost all photographic opportunities with this single†Tamron 18-200mm F 3.8-5.6†Aspherical (IF) AF lens without changing lenses. When paired with the SP AF11-18mm zoom lens, simultaneously introduced by Tamron at Photokina, you can enjoy thoroughly digital SLR photography with the combined focal length coverage of 17-300mm.

* "Di (Digitally Integrated design)-II" is the designation Tamron puts on lenses designed for exclusive use with digital (APS-C size) SLR cameras, featuring optical systems optimized to meet the performance characteristics of digital cameras.
* "Di-II" lenses cannot be used with digital SLR cameras using image sensors that are larger than that of an APS-C size imager, or with 35mm film SLR cameras.
