A Review of the Tamron 50-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD Lens

In recent years, Tamron has entirely reinvented themselves as a company that produces competitive lenses that offer excellent performance and image quality at prices that are often significantly more affordable than many first-party options. One of their latest lenses, the 50-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD, offers a highly versatile focal length range suitable for a huge range of genres and applications. This great video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this excellent video review looks at the new Tamron 50-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD lens. Certainly, with an 8x zoom range that covers everything from normal to supertelephoto focal lengths, the 50-400mm f/4.5-6.3 is already highly versatile, but it offers even more beyond that with its 1:2 macro capabilities. This might just make it the ultimate outdoor lens for anyone who likes to go for hikes without needing to carry several heavy lenses. While the maximum aperture range of f/4.5-6.3 might give some pause, the high-ISO capabilities of modern cameras mean that is much less of a hindrance than it used to be, making it quite an intriguing lens for many users. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
