The Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD isn’t a perfect lens but it is a very unique value for the Fujifilm system. If you want one lens that can do everything well enough then the Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD is really your only option. ePhotozine has published an in-depth review of the new super zoom Tamron lens that you can read here or you can check out the exhibit below:

Yes, there are compromises technically that we can be aware of, but there are also touches of excellence and the lens can happily be ‘Recommended’.


  • Central sharpness can be outstanding
  • Well-controlled central CA
  • Very little distortion
  • Modest vignetting
  • Fast and quiet AF
  • Rich, vibrant colour
  • Moisture resistance
  • Pleasing bokeh and overall look
  • Modest size and weight
  • VC (Vibration Compensation)
  • Very close focusing
  • Excellent price


  • Poor edge sharpness at extremes of the zoom range
  • Edge CA, especially at 18mm
