Tamron has announced the development of a new 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD telephoto-zoom lens (Model A035) for full-frame DSLR cameras.
The lens is fully compatible with Tamron’s 1.4X tele converter that multiplies the lens’s focal length, and the Tamron TAP-in Console which enables lens customizations for focus adjustments, VC mechanism adjustments and more.
The advanced optical design of the 100-400mm includes 3 LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements for greater aberration reduction and Tamron’s original eBAND Coating for superior anti-reflection performance.
