TAMRON announces development of its first lens for FUJIFILM X-mount and also available in Sony E-mount


Transcontinenta UK Ltd., Tamron distributor for UK and Ireland, is happy to announce that Tamron starts the development of its first lens for FUJIFILM X-mount and Sony E-mount cameras simultaneously: Tamron 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A  VC VXD (Model B061).

Since the launch of the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036), a fast-aperture standard zoom lens for Sony E-mount Full-Frame mirrorless cameras in 2018, Tamron has continually expanded its line of lenses for Sony mirrorless cameras. The popularity and wide adoption of these lenses prompted many user requests for the manufacture of the lens for other camera brands. 

As a specialist in the all-in-one zoom lens category, Tamron recognized the potential to develop the first all-in-one zoom lens for the FUJIFILM X-mount. The Tamron 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A  VC VXD (Model B061) is the world's first all-in-one zoom lens for Sony and FUJIFILM APS-C mirrorless cameras featuring a 16.6x zoom ratio. To provide the pleasure of photography to more people around the world, Tamron will continue to develop unique products and expand the number of lenses compatible with more camera brands.

The Tamron 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD (Model B061) at a glance

The Tamron 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD (Model B061) covers a wide zoom range from approximately 27mm to 450mm (Full-Frame equivalent focal length). The first APS-C mirrorless camera zoom lens in the world with a 16.6x zoom ratio, the lens delivers the benefits of a versatile all-in-one zoom lens ideal for a broad array of photographic possibilities. Its AF drive system uses Tamron’s linear motor focus mechanism VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) for superior quietness and agile performance. The lens includes special lens elements arranged precisely to maintain high-resolution performance from edge-to-edge and provide high image quality that is among the best of all all-in-one zoom lenses.

With an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.15m at the wide end and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2, this lens performs astonishingly well in its category when shooting up close. It is equipped with Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism that supports stable photography even at ultra-telephoto focal lengths. And it features a unified 67mm filter size, the same as other Tamron lenses for mirrorless cameras.

Main features

  • The world’s first 16.6x all-in-one zoom (for Sony/Fujifilm).
  • Extremely fast and precise AF, VXD linear motor focus mechanism, the highest-level in its class.
  • MOD: 0.15m, maximum magnification ratio: 1:2 at 18mm wide end.
  • The best image quality in its class.
  • Outstanding VC (Vibration Compensation).
  • Comfortably compact.
  • User-friendly features (Moisture-Resistant Construction, Fluorine Coating, Zoom Lock switch)

 

Availability and price 

The new Tamron 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD (Model B061) will be available in the UK and Ireland sometime at the end of 2021. Further details, product and sample photos will be available in due course.

I am always sceptical to a zoom which has such a range.
It must (?) be a compromise, with IQ suffering. I remember being told some years ago, to never buy a zoom with more than about 3 x zoom as it would balance versatility with poorer IQ. I don't know if progress in materials and technology makes that statement out-dated these days...

Has Tamron indicated whether the 18-300mm (B061) will be fully functional with Fuji cameras ? That is, auto focus etc ?
