TAMRON SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2

TAMRON SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 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.

TAMRON SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2

Enhanced optics meet greater versatility

Focal length: 600mm Exposure: F/8 1/2000 sec ISO400

Focal length: 600mm Exposure: F/9 1/160 sec ISO1600

The SP 150-600mm G2 includes three LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements which completely eliminate axial and transverse chromatic aberrations. It also features upgraded optical construction (21 elements in 13 groups). 

Anti-reflection technologies, eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating improve light transmission and suppress internal reflections, including light reflected off the camera’s image sensors. So even when taking a backlit or semi-backlit photograph, ghosting and flare caused by reflected light are fully eliminated. 

Additional enhancements expand the lens’ versatility. For example, MOD (Minimum Object Distance) has been reduced to 2.2m (86.6 in) so you can enjoy tele-macro photography and dramatic bokeh. 

Capture the moment with sharpness and accuracy

Focal length: 350mm Exposure: F/6.3 1/1600sec ISO400

The Model A022 is equipped with the USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ring-type motor that delivers excellent responsiveness and control. AF speed is significantly improved from current model, and it enables accurate high-speed focus even when capturing moving subjects. 
When shooting with AF, the Full-time Manual Focus override allows you to instantly make fine focusing adjustments manually, without having to switch between modes.

Keep it steady with improved VC

Focal length: 213mm Exposure: F/6.3 1/50 sec ISO2000

Focal length: 375mm Exposure: F/7.1 1/80 sec ISO100

The VC (Vibration Compensation) effectiveness is equivalent to 4.5 stops, based on image stabilization performance levels established by CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) when using in VC MODE 3. Model A022 now has three types of VC modes, and it is possible to choose the optimum VC mode according to the situation for taking a photograph, such as when wishing to pan the camera. 

The improved VC minimizes blurring caused by slight camera movement, which is prevalent with long telephoto lenses and even more troublesome with higher-resolution cameras. VC enhances the freedom of hand-held shooting at slower shutter speeds required by low-light conditions such as dusk. 

VC MODE 1 is the standard mode that strikes a great balance between the stability of the viewfinder image and the stabilization effects. 
VC MODE 2 is exclusively used for panning. 
VC MODE 3 prioritizes the stabilization of the captured images and forgoes the stabilization of the viewfinder image. 

With the optional accessory TAMRON TAP-in Console™, you can custom the configuration of VC MODE 1. Choose the viewfinder view of either Standard or viewfinder image priority.
