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.
VC (Vibration Compensation)The VC Image Stabilizer delivers sharp and shake-free images, as well as a smooth viewfinder image.
Super PerformanceTamron’s Super Performance series delivers a range of lenses that meet the highest standards.
Internal-Focusing (IF)-SystemThe extension length of the lens does not change during focussing and the close focussing distance is significantly reduced across the entire focusing range.
eBAND CoatingNano-structured lens coating to protect against unwanted reflection and ghosting.
USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)Powerful ultrasonic motor for quick and dynamic subjects. It is extremely quiet, precise and allows manual control at any time.
XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) GlassA special glass with an extremely low colour dispersion index for the greatest level of sharpness and compensation of chromatic aberration.
LD (Low Dispersion)Lens element for greater image sharpness and the correction of chromatic aberration.
Zoom Lock (ZL) MechanismProtects against undesired extension of the lens barrel.
Moisture ResistantMoisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.
