Ease of Use
The Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD is fairly light considering the massive 22x zoom range on offer, weighing in at 710g. It certainly doesn’t feel too weighty in the hand and proved to be well balanced on the Canon EOS 80D that we tested it with. The lens extends by an extra 10.5cm when fully zoomed out to 400mm, though, which does make it quite conspicuous.
