Tamron‘s All-In-One™ Zoom Lens Evolution Continues Announcing An Exceptional New Lens For Full-Frame DSLRs
Since the launch of its first versatile high-performance, high-power zoom, the 28-200mm (Model 71D) in 1992, Tamron has continued to expand its long-range zoom portfolio. In response to the growing popularity of full-frame digital SLR cameras, Tamron is now launching a new, full-frame, high-power zoom incorporating PZD (Piezo Drive), a standing-wave ultrasonic motor system optimized for swift, quiet autofocus, along with the acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism plus a new upscala cosmetic design and finish. This all-In-oneTM 28-300mm lens delivers superb image quality In a remarkably compact, lightweight package, and is the fruit of Tamron‘s program of extensive technological development over the years.
State-of-the-art optical design technology delivers superior image quality
The advanced optical construction of this lens includes four elements of LD (Low Dispersion) glass, three Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, one Hybrid Aspherical element, one XR (Extra Refractive Index) glass element, and one element of UXR (Ultra-Extra Refractive Index) glass, which has greater refractive index than XR. The full use of specialized glass elements in its design contributes to making this outstanding lens as compact and lightweight as possible, while minimizing aberrations, resulting in superior image quality.
Features and Functions
The PZD ultrasonic motor delivers a noticeably faster and at the same time quieter autofocus action – ideal for capturing spontaneous moments in razor-sharp images. Furthermore, it also allows you the option of manually focussing the lens at any time.
VC Image Stabilization (Vibration Compensation)
The tried-and-tested Tamron VC Image Stabilizer (Vibration Compensation) ensures this lens delivers sharp and shake-free images. This means that the lens is also perfectly suited for hand-held photos and low-light conditions.
The complex lens construction is splash-proof. As a result, this lens is also suitable for sophisticated outdoor photography.
Internal-Focusing (IF) System
The extension length of the lens does not change during focussing and the close focussing distance is significantly reduced across the entire focusing range.
VC (Vibration Compensation)
The VC Image Stabilizer delivers sharp and shake-free images, as well as a smooth viewfinder image.
Hybrid aspherical elements ensure unique image quality and compactness.
LD (Low Dispersion)
Lens element for greater image sharpness and the correction of chromatic aberration.
Zoom Lock (ZL) Mechanism
Protects against undesired extension of the lens barrel.
PZD (Piezo Drive)
The Piezo Drive enables noticeably quick yet at the same time almost silent focussing.
XR (Extra Refractive Index) Glass
A special glass with a particularly high refractive index for greater performance and a compact lens design.
