Ready and very steady
Zoom up to 600mm for images that soar
Capture the power and beauty of wildlife, birds, travel destinations, and exciting sports action close-ups with this high-performance 150 - 600mm long-range zoom.
VC ( Vibration Compensation) and USD ( Ultrasonic Silent Drive) enable you to shoot crisp images of fast-moving, distant subjects handheld, while proprietary Tamron optical technology, including eBAND Coating, works to suppress flare and ghosting for impressively clear, vibrant images.
SP (Super Performance)
Only two letters - but what an impact they have on the results. SP stands for Super Performance and represents the high-performance lens class from Tamron. Our engineers were given a free hand in the design of these lenses and left no stone unturned to produce the optimal performance characteristics in each case. Take your camera to new frontiers - and pave the way for Super Performance.
Features and Functions
Delivering leading-edge image quality
The optical design of this lens uses a high-performance XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) element, which is manufactured out of a special glass with an extremely low refractive index. The refractive index describes the ability of the lens to split a light beam into its spectral colours. The dispersive properties are even lower than standard LD lenses and are at a level similar to fluorite. The XLD lens in combination with the LD element delivers the highest contrast and brilliance. This effectively prevents the problem of chromatic aberration in telephoto photography and delivers a high level of sharpness even in the peripheral regions. The result is a lens that effectively compensates for axial chromatic aberration and magnification aberration throughout the entire zoom range and guarantees the highest resolution and brilliance for your pictures.
The Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) is Tamron's latest generation of autofocus motors. Thanks to the advanced motor technology and the newly developed software, the USD enables a fast, precise and almost silent photographic experience. There are few better options for capturing quick and dynamic subjects that arise in areas such as sports photography, fast cars or even wildlife photography.
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.
Additional product features
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.
USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)
Powerful ultrasonic motor for quick and dynamic subjects. It is extremely quiet, precise and allows manual control at any time.
Tamron's Super Performance series delivers a range of lenses that meet the highest standards.
LD (Low Dispersion)
Lens element for greater image sharpness and the correction of chromatic aberration.
Nano-structured lens coating to protect against unwanted reflection and ghosting.
XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) Glass
A special glass with an extremely low colour dispersion index for the greatest level of sharpness and compensation of chromatic aberration.
Zoom Lock (ZL) Mechanism
Protects against undesired extension of the lens barrel.
