Tamron 100-400mm f/5.6-8.3 MFT Lens Patent Revealed

By on

Tamron has filed a new patent for a superzoom lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras. The application is for Tamron 100-400mm f/5.6-8.3 lens.

If we see this in mass production than it would be Tamron’s second optic for Micro 4/3rds. First one released back in mid-2014 as the Tamron 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III ($399).

Tamron 100-400mm f/5.6-8.3 lens will offer a 200-800mm equivalent range in 35mm format and probably use a stepper motor for silent autofocus. At the moment specs or price details is unknown.

So it will be compatible with the Micro Four Thirds standard. Sure it will feature compact and lightweight design that is ideal for traveling. We also expect a metal lens barrel which provides increased durability and tactility.

Even the MFT market waits for a sharp 100-400 f/5.6 lens, this should provide a cheap option for a long range telephoto lens. Overall, if Tamron sells this lens for a price between $600-800 than it sell like pancakes.
