The Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD lens is an excellent telephoto zoom lens. I purchased this lens in January 2018 because I needed a longer telephoto lens for a few landscape photography trips to Yosemite National Park and Iceland that I had coming up.
After a year of owning it, I think it’s time that I write down a few thoughts I have about this lens. Spoiler alert, I don’t have anything negative to say about this lens. It is a wonderful lens that I am very, very happy with. Tamron does it again!
As with all the other lens reviews I wrote, this is not going to be a summary of MTF charts or photos of brick walls and charts. There are plenty of other review sites out there if you are looking for that kind of information. This will just be my thoughts based on my real-world use of this lens out in the field.
Also, you’ll see that this will be a fairly glowing review but this is not a sponsored post. I was not paid to write this by Tamron or anyone else.
