The release of this lens coincides with Tamron’s 60th anniversary, and they have put great care and attention to detail into its design. The lens is the first from Tamron of this zoom range to feature Vibration Compensation and the first of all their lenses to have its Ultrasonic Silent Drive motor for ultra-fast focusing.
Extra Low Dispersion for Fine Image Resolution This lens uses one LD (Low Dispersion) and one XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) element to counteract colour fringing that is caused by the refraction of light in traditional lens elements. The result is extremely low levels of chromatic aberration and contrast and sharpness that are class beating.
Multiple BBAR (Broad Band Anti Reflection) coatings have been employed to keep flare and ghosting to negligible levels and the inclusion of a flower shape hood makes sure that stray light is kept from entering the lens.
Ultrasonic Silent Drive Focus First introduced in this lens, this technology uses ultrasonic wave interactions to propel the focus mechanism quickly and precisely to its desired point. The end result is ultra-fast focus even at long focal lengths, making this lens ideal for sports and wildlife photography. If you prefer manual focus this is attainable at any time without a switch, just by rotating the focus ring manually – courtesy of the Full Time Manual Focus feature. Filters are easily managed too thanks to fully internal focusing.
Vibration Compensation The image stabilisation for this lens works from three coils and offers up to four extra stops of smaller apertures to be used, allowing for much greater scope when shooting fast moving or dimly lit subjects.
Also features 1:4 Macro magnification and full frame or APS-C compatibility.
