New superzoom lens for Sony E-mount cameras

New superzoom lens for Sony E-mount camerasTamron has released a new 18-200mm power zoom lens for Sony E-mount cameras. The f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC is compact and lightweight, with a 62mm filter diameter and low weight of 460g. The lens, available in black or silver, has a corresponding full-frame angle of view equivalent of 27mm wide-angle and up to 300mm full telephoto. In addition, by setting the lens at the telephoto end (200mm) and moving in to the minimum focus distance of 0.5m, you can shoot expanded close-ups. Tamron claims the AF drive has a stepping motor optimised for the contrast-detection AF system used by Sony NEX series cameras. The system also enables improved AF performance when shooting video. The lens will be available next year. The price is still to be confirmed.
