Ready and Very Steady
With proprietary Vibration Compensation system, the new-look Tamron SP 150-600mm
zoom keeps you primed for action.
- 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.
- Advanced Optical Technology
Three LD (Low Dispersion) elements are effectively deployed to correct chromatic
aberrations, a challenging problem when shooting at long distances and at
long focal-length settings. Tamron's eBAND Coating and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection)
Coating help suppress flare and ghosting for class-leading image quality.
- VC (Vibration Compensation)
VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron's proprietary image stabilization system.
Tamron's VC is a three-coil system, whereby three driving coils activate the
shake-compensating VC lens group electromagnetically via three ceramic ball
bearings. The VC lens elements are held in place by contact with the ceramic
ball bearings, achieving smooth movement with little friction. And since the
VC mechanism is moved in parallel using only the motorized control, the mechanical
structure has been simplified, enabling the development of a more compact
- USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)
The quiet high-torque USD motor ensures a speedy and accurate autofocus response.
- New eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating
This new coating technique developed by Tamron deploys a nano-structured layer
(1 nm = 1/1,000,000mm) of ultra-low refractive index, with dimensions smaller
than the wavelengths of visible rays of light. This nano-structured layer
coupled with the sophisticated multiple layer coatings underneath, yields
significant anti-reflection properties, efficiently reducing undesired flare
and ghosting to an absolute minimum to deliver sharp, crisp images.
- Compact and Stylish
While covering a very wide range of focal lengths, this lens is remarkably
compact and accepts 95mm filters. Its stylish design with signature Tamron
tungsten silver finish and elegant brand ring incorporates a sturdy tripod
mount to enhance both stability and ease of use.
