Tamron announces the launch of the 70-210mm F/4 Di VC USD lens for full frame DSLR cameras.

This compact telephoto zoom lens provides superb optical performance throughout the entire zoom range and features a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1.  The design includes an internal zoom mechanism that provides solid mechanical construction and stable, reliable operation.

The lens also employs a Dual MPU (Micro-Processing Unit) design, which enables high-speed and high-accuracy AF performance as well as powerful VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization for flexible and versatile use in various situations.

Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD is compatible with both the 1.4x (Model TC-X14) and 2.0x (Model TC-X20) Teleconverters. An Arca-Swiss style tripod mount is available as an optional accessory. The Tamron 70-210mm F/4 Di VC USD will be available from April 2018 for $799 in the US. Check for Canon and Nikon versions.
