NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 15, 2017) - B&H Photo is pleased to share the announcement of Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens in Canon EF and Nikon F mounts.

Also, with construction featuring magnesium alloy, Tamron could keep weight to under 2.5 lb, impressive for this class of lens.
