One of the nice things about a so-called bridge camera is that many of the recent offerings are fitted with superzooms that offer very long telephoto focal lengths.

The Tamron f/3.5-6.3 18-400mm Di II VC HLD brings the bridge camera concept to Canon and Nikon digital SLRs with APS-C sensors. This translates to a full-frame equivalent range of 27-600mm for Nikon cameras and 28.8-640mm for Canon bodies.

Sigma's intent with this lens is to provide a premium all-purpose zoom with excellent optical performance and "beautiful circular bokeh."
