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
acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism plus a new upscale
cosmetic design and finish.
This all-in-one 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
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.
Focus on portability. The lens is now even smaller and lighter
In addition to state-of-the-art optical design that
facilitates downsizing of the lens body, the mechanical design, which
incorporates a highly sophisticated multi-stack-cam layout that takes up
far less space, and PZD (Piezo Drive), an autofocus drive system with a
simpler, more compact structure, has made it possible to reduce the
overall dimensions of this lens.
Advanced anti-reflection coating
The application of BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection)
coatings for suppressing reflections on a lens element surfaces
minimizes unwanted flare and ghosting to deliver sharp, crisp,
PZD (Piezo Drive) delivers faster, quieter autofocus action
The PZD (Piezo Drive) provides noticeably faster, quieter
autofocus action, allowing users to capture spontaneous moments to crisp
images and to continue to shoot even when quiet operation is required.
The full-time manual focus system enables fine focus adjustments to be
made during autofocus shooting without having to change the focus mode
VC (Vibration Compensation)
Tamron's acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism
reduces image blur caused by camera shake to deliver sharp images even
when shooting handheld in low light or at the telephoto end.
Upgraded cosmetic design. Elegant tungsten silver brand ring
Employing a sophisticated linear pattern rubber grip on
the zoom and focus rings and an elegant tungsten silver brand ring, this
newly-designed model accentuates its visceral presence with understated
elegance and class.
Circular diaphragm facilitates aqchieving spectacular blur effects
Using a nearly circular diaphragm makes it easy for users
to achieve spectacular background blur effects that enable creative use
of depth of field.
Moisture-resistant construction for outdoor shooting
Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.
