150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD Lens
The 150-500mm F5-6.7 is TAMRON’s first ultra-telephoto zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras that reaches the 500mm focal length and when used on APS-C mirrorless format cameras, the zoom range is a 225-750mm full-frame equivalent.
- Compact 750mm equivalent ultra-telephoto zoom lens
- Amazing high image quality
- VXD AF motor provides high speed, high precision, and excellent quietness
- TAMRON’s acclaimed VC delivers excellent image stabilization
- Telephoto-macro shooting unleashes excellent close-range shooting performance
- Additional features for greater convenience
- Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating provide extra protection
Amazing high image quality
The optical construction features 25 elements in 16 groups. The generous and effective use of special lens elements including one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) element, five LD (Low Dispersion) elements, and two Hybrid Aspherical lens elements thoroughly controls aberrations including axial chromatic aberrations. And because the 150-500mm F5-6.7 is designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras, it delivers extremely high image quality and overall performance across the entire zoom range, in the center and from edge-to-edge.
VXD AF motor provides high speed, high precision, and excellent quietness
The 150-500mm F5-6.7 features the VXD linear motor focus mechanism. VXD delivers high-speed and high-precision movement and ensures responsive performance. Additionally, the linear motor also reduces drive noise and vibrations produced during focusing (as compared to a conventional drive system), making it ideal for shooting both still photos and video in low-noise environments.
TAMRON’s acclaimed VC delivers excellent image stabilization
The slim, compact 150-500mm F5-6.7 is equipped with TAMRON’s VC mechanism. The lens features a VC mode selection switch with three settings (Mode 1: Standard, Mode 2: Exclusively for Panning, and Mode 3: Framing Priority) so the ideal VC mode can be invoked to match shooting conditions. This functionality delivers excellent image stabilization performance, enabling efficient reduction of image blur caused by camera shake.
Telephoto-macro shooting unleashes excellent close-range shooting performance
The 150-500mm F5-6.7 offers excellent close-up shooting capabilities for an ultra-telephoto lens. The MOD is 23.6” at the 150mm end and 70.9” at the 500mm telephoto end. The maximum magnification ratio at 150mm is exceptionally high at 1:3.1 (the full-frame equivalent of 1:2.1). Users can shoot powerful telephoto-macro images of subjects including flowers and insects while maintaining a reasonable shooting distance — closer than you can get with conventional ultra-telephoto zoom lenses.
- Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount with strap attachment holes included
- Lens hood with flexible, protective front portion
- Switch designed for ease of operation and handling
- FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism to support greater usability
- Equipped with an MF SPEED switch that is handy when focusing manually
An ultra-telephoto zoom lens with extreme usability for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless
In the development and design of the 150-500mm F5-6.7 zoom, TAMRON emphasized usability so that users can fully immerse themselves in the world of ultra-telephoto zoom lenses without minor annoyances.
Lens hood designed with rubberized front
The end of the included lens hood is protected with flexible, shock-absorbing front rim to prevent cracks and damage.
Fast, smooth zooming operation with minimal movement
The arc of rotation of the zoom ring is only 75° to enable swift adjustment to the desired focal length with minimal movement.
Flex Zoom Lock mechanism
The FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism quickly locks or unlocks the zoom at any position simply by sliding the zoom ring. Photographers can shoot at any angle without the lens extending unintentionally.
New switch design for improved operability
Modifications to the switch designs provide smoother, more comfortable operation overall and more intuitive control.
Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount with strap attachment holes included
Strap attachment holes are conveniently located in the Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount, and the overall balance with the strap attached, with regard to center of gravity, is excellent.
Circular aperture to produce a smooth-edged bokeh
A 7-blade diaphragm is configured to retain a smooth, circular-shaped aperture opening even when stopped down by two stops from the wide-open aperture. This produces a smooth-edged bokeh in background highlights.
Moisture-Resistant Construction protects your lens
For greater protection when shooting outdoors, leak-resistant seals throughout the lens barrel help protect your equipment.
BBAR-G2 Coating delivers stunning clarity and contrast
Tamron has long been an innovator of coating technologies that prevent ghosting and flare. Second-generation BBAR-G2 Coating is a groundbreaking advancement that provides vastly improved performance compared to the original BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating. The coating corrects for ghosting and flare to an unprecedented extent and renders fine subject detail with true clarity and stunning contrast even under backlit conditions
Fluorine Coating for protection and safe cleaning
The front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water- and oil-repellant. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture, and fingerprints.
