The world's first 18.8X zoom, plus 1:2.9 macro reproduction.
Zooming from 16mm (35mm equivalent:24.8mm) to 300mm (35mm equivalent: 465mm), at its widest–angle setting this lens can shoot sweeping panoramic landscapes and intimate interiors, and as a telephoto it can capture powerful close–ups of distant subjects. Macro focusing down to 1:2.9 is also provided.
VC (Vibration Compensation).
VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron's proprietary image stabilization system. It employs three driving coils that electromagnetically activate a shake–compensating VC lens group. Since the VC lens elements are held in place only by three ceramic ball bearings, there is smooth movement with little friction. Even when shooting long–range or under low light, the viewfinder image remains stable and the tracking response is excellent.
PZD (Piezo Drive) for faster, quieter autofocusing.
With Tamron's PZD (Piezo Drive), autofocusing is noticeably faster and quieter. You can capture crisp images spontaneously, even in noise–sensitive situations. There is enhanced support for contrast–detection AF capabilities, and focusing when in live–view mode is smoother. Full–time manual override lets you make fine focus adjustments at any time without having to switch out of autofocus mode.
Advanced optical and mechanical design technology achieve high image quality in a compact, lightweight zoom.
The cutting–edge lens design consists of 16 elements in 12 groups and includes three Molded–Glass Aspherical elements, two LD (Low Dispersion) elements and UXR (Ultra–Extra Refractive Index) glass. Together, they correct optical aberrations, while state–of–the–art multi–layer coating significantly minimizes ghosting and flare to deliver images of exceptional clarity. The entire package is kept incredibly compact through the use of advanced mechanical design engineering.
Elegant new style.
The rubber grips on the zoom and focus rings have a rectilinear grid pattern that adds sophistication to the design, while the signature Tamron brand ring in tungsten silver enhances its luxurious finish.
Moisture–resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.
