The 100-400mm Telephoto Zoom Lens is currently one of the best lenses for wildlife photography Tamron has in their zoom lens range. The 100-400mm focal length offers a diverse range of zoom that works well for wildlife photography. With eBand and BBAR technology, this lens offers exceptional sharpness with minimal internal flare and ghosting, delivering crisp and high-contrast images. A very effective 4-stop image stabiliser minimises the effects of camera shake causing blurred images when shooting at slow shutter speeds. This is another reason why the Tamron 100-400mm is a great DSLR lens for wildlife photography.

The Tamron 100-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A035) is a highly portable, ultra-telephoto zoom lens with AF precision for shooting in-the-moment action clearly and easily. 3 LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements are used and effectively positioned to take away aberrations that are known to occur with telephoto lenses. And Tamronʼs proprietary eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating prevents reflections, giving you clearer, more vivid images. With a lens barrel made primarily of magnesium, the Model A035 is the lightest zoom in the ultra-telephoto category, making it ideal for handheld shooting over long periods of time. Plus, Moisture-Resistant construction and a Fluorine-Coating on the front element provide additional protection when shooting outdoors.
Precise AF tracking and VC (Vibration Compensation) are essential for ultra-telephoto lens performance. Thatʼs where Tamronʼs Dual MPU high-speed control system comes in. It features an MPU (micro-processing unit) with a built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for superior signal processing, plus a separate MPU dedicated exclusively to vibration compensation. With enhanced AF response speed and VC, you can accurately shoot fast-moving subjects with stability and ease—even in low-light.
A built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) on the MPU delivers high-speed processing of digital signals, while ensuring excellent AF responsiveness. This improvement allows you to track subjects moving at high speeds, even more accurately. The AF drive system also uses a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) motor for outstanding performance and fast, precise focusing.
Weʼve fine-tuned our original VC (Vibration Compensation) system with an enhanced control algorithm and an independent MPU dedicated to VC. Together, they meet a CIPA image stabilisation performance level of 4 stops. While most ultra-telephoto lenses are prone to camera shake, the Tamron 100-400mm Di VC delivers excellent stability for reliable, stress-free handheld shooting.
Using a tripod is as easy as shooting handheld with this telephoto zoom lens. A thoughtfully designed grip makes it easy to handle. Plus Arca-Swiss release compatibility and an easily detachable tripod mount improve speed and flexibility. An optional tripod lets you choose the most suitable way to shoot the subject and help to express your creativity.
With a minimum object distance of 1.5m (59 in) and a maximum image magnification of 1:3.6, the Tamron 100-400mm can zoom in on a subject smoothly, resulting in close-up shooting with a crisp in-focus subject and a soft, blurred background effect.
Two highly developed lens coating technologies, eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency), which uses nanotechnology, and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) combine to increase light transmission and to reduce flare and ghosting to imperceptible levels. The lens delivers high contrast, sharp and clear images.
An electromagnetic diaphragm system, which has been a standard feature for Canon-mount lenses, is employed in Nikon-mount lenses. More precise diaphragm and aperture control is possible because the diaphragm blades are driven and controlled by a motor through electronic pulse signals.
The front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water- and oil-repellant. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints.
The optional TAP-in Console™ provides a USB connection to your personal computer, enabling you to easily update your lens’s firmware as well as customise features including fine adjustments to the AF and VC.
