The idea of traveling, especially when hiking, with just one lens is one of those visions so many of us can't imagine. We've all been conditioned to taking several lenses and a tripod, adding plenty of weight to that backpack.
I love the technology Tamron has put into their new 18-400 Di II VC HLD lens. The 18-400 zoom gives you the range. I grabbed a few images from the video for the photos below, and while they're screenshots, they still make an excellent point about the versatility of this new lens. It's got image stabilization and moisture resistant construction. And, among interchangeable DSLR lenses, it's the "first 22.2X ultra-telephoto high power zoom lens."
Imagine being able to hand-hold a lens like this and still get outstanding images!
