The Tamron AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD AF Lens for Nikon is a 15x high power zoom lens designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras using the more compact (APS-C)
digital size image sensors. The focal length of this lens is equivalent
to approx. 28-419mm in 35mm format. Designed as an "all-in-one" lens,
it will meet almost all photographic opportunities without changing
The addition of PZD (Piezo Drive) ultrasonic autofocus motor helps
make this lens lighter, short and slimmer than any previous lens in this
category, and provides faster, quieter auto-focusing.
The VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism allows the use of shutter
speeds that are much slower than otherwise possible, with no perceptible
increase in image blur. It automatically detects movement of the camera
and compensates for camera shake when shooting a moving object. This
feature is a must in a lens with this longer range of focal length.
This lens will focus down to 19.3" (0.49 m) throughout the zoom range.
This lens is designed exclusively for DSLR cameras with smaller-size
sensors. It is NOT compatible with 35mm film cameras and DSLR cameras
with image sensors larger than 24 x 16mm.
