Maintaining the high performance of the previous model, Tamron's 28-300mm zoom lens now features our "Di" design, making it the ideal lens for use with both digital and film cameras.

Tamron lenses are known for their excellent quality. That's why Tamron offers an extended guarantee to 5 years upon successful product registration in Europe within two months. For more informations and terms & conditions please Click here!

The "Di" design is achieved by applying a new optical design to its coated surfaces, and by further enhancing our already stringent quality control system. Whether you shoot film or digital, the lens provides high image quality for both platforms. When used with APS-C size digital SLR cameras, the lens provides an angle of view equivalent to approximately 44-465mm, covering the standard to ultra telephoto range with no sacrifice of quality or aperture range.

VC (Vibration Compensation) Mechanism Reduces Hand-shake

The proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism developed by Tamron features a triaxial configuration using three pairs of driving coils and slide balls around the compensator group of the lens optical system. Since the compensator lenses are supported with rolling friction of the balls, the response performance is enhanced and the construction is simple, which results in the compactness of the lens. The lens incorporates a highly accurate gyro sensor for detecting hand-shake, which, combined with a 32-bit RISC CPU, offers comfortable anti-vibration effects.

High Zoom Power, VC Mechanism and Compactness

The AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.5 XR Di VC integrates optical technologies that Tamron has accumulated as the pioneer and leader of high power zoom lenses in order to achieve compactness while incorporating the VC mechanism. The optical system uses a number of lens elements made from special optical glass materials including XR (high refraction index) glass elements, GM (glass-molded aspherical lens) elements, hybrid aspherical elements, LD (low dispersion) glass elements to compensate for on-axis and lateral chromatic aberrations and AD (anomalous dispersion) glass element. The lens offers high contrast, high resolution performance and flatness of the image field as a one-does-it-all zoom lens designed to match the characteristics of DSLR cameras.

1:3 Macro Magnification Ratio

The AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD MACRO boasts an MFD (minimum focusing distance) of 0.49m over the entire zoom range, a top-class closing focusing capability among high power zoom lenses for full-size format SLR cameras, which provides the remarkable maximum macro magnification ratio of 1:3 at the 300mm telephoto end.

Internal Surface Coatings Minimize Ghosting and Flare

Through the use of internal surface coatings and multiple-layer coatings to prevent reflections from lens surfaces. Therefore ghosting and flare due to reflections that occur when light enters through the front element, as well as reflections caused by the imager itself in the mirror box, are reduced to the absolute minimum.

Lightweight and Compact Design

Tamron has reviewed the roles that respective barrel parts play in order to achieve the high power, compactness and light weight. As a result dimensional increases are confined to a mere 17.8mm in overall length and about 5mm in diameter (when compared with the previous AF28-300mm), despite the incorporation of the VC mechanism.

Zoom Lock Mechanism for Enhanced Portability

The zoom lock prevents unwanted barrel extension when carrying the lens/camera combination over the shoulder.

Petal Lens Hood

A flower-shaped lens hood is included as a standard accessory. The special hood provides optimum shading of superfluous light rays that enter from the rectangular frame outside the image field.
