Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6

Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6

Telephoto zoom with image stabilization

March 9, 2010, Commack, NY— President and CEO Morio Ono of optical equipment manufacturer Tamron Co., Ltd., announced another advance in Tamron's pursuit of high resolution images in the telephoto lens category with the development of a 70-300mm F/4-5.6 telephoto zoom lens featuring image stabilization –– VC (Vibration Compensation) and an ultrasonic auto-focus drive –– USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive). The SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) high-resolution DSLR telephoto zoom lens has been produced first for the Nikon mount, with the development of compatible mounts for Canon and Sony to follow.

This new telephoto zoom lens is designed for digital SLR cameras and can be used with both full-frame sensor as well as AF 35mm film cameras with a zoom range of 70-300mm; and with APS-C sensor cameras where the angle of view will change the zoom range equal to 109-465mm.

With superior optical performance, Tamron’s own USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) and VC (Vibration Compensation), the SP 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) provides the performance of a high-end premium telephoto zoom that is appealing to a broad spectrum of photography enthusiasts.

Unparalleled optical performance in a fast and steady telephoto zoom lens

In the pursuit to achieve the most outstanding image resolution in the 70-300mm class, Tamron’s 60th Anniversary lens - the SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) - utilizes an advanced optical design that features an LD (Low Dispersion) and an XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) lens element made from specialized materials that prevent chromatic aberration. As a result, the SP AF70-300mm Di VC USD boasts sharper contrast and greater descriptive performance than all others in its class.

In addition, it is the first Tamron lens sporting a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), Tamron’s very own ultrasonic auto-focus drive mechanism. This USD mechanism delivers fast focusing, making it a perfect telephoto zoom choice for photographing sports, racing, and other fast-moving subjects. The lens also boasts Tamron’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization to assist in hand-held shooting, not only at long focal length ranges where blurring is common, but also under low-lit conditions, dramatically enhancing photographic freedom.

This combination of best in class image resolution, Ultrasonic Silent Drive and Vibration Compensation is a new achievement of Tamron technology, culminating in the production of a premium 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens.

Tamron Hands-on

Tamron Hands-on

Two Great Zoom Lens Just Released

Tamron at Photokina 2008While other manufacturers are touting new camera formats to increase market share, Tamron continues to improve performance on their lenses to offer cost effective alternatives. I had the opportunity to try out two introductions on the Photokina show floor.

The first was an ultra wide angle 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5. Designed for APS-C sized image sensors the SP AF10-24mm Di II LD Aspherical (IF) lens has more acronyms than I can count but the performance shows. It is lightweight and fall off is reduced. The finish is different than the 11-18mm that it replaces. This is a great wide angle zoom to have in your bag.

Tamron at Photokina 2008The second lens breaks new ground in wide range super zooms. The 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 offers the highest zoom range that I have scene in a SLR lens. It was fun to try and guess when it would stop on either end of the zoom ranges. If you need all the acronyms -- and who doesn't -- the lens is the AF28-200mm F/3.8-6.3 Di II VC.

The VC stands for vibration compensation which you'll need as this "walking around lens" will let you push the limits of handholding a long lens. The vibration compensation combined with its light weight gives you about 4 more stops before you grab the tripod.

One "spec" that Tamron uses is that they call this lens a 15X lens. I wonder how that compact digital term for zoom power fits in within the digital SLR market. I only thought about this after I left the booth, having commiserated with them about the whole focal length conversion/cropping/magnification/field-of-view terminology among manufacturers.
