Announced : Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD & 11-20mm f/2.8 Di III-A RXD Lenses

By on

Tamron officially announced the new  ultra-telephoto zoom lens for Sony full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras and the new 11-20mm f/2.8 Di III-A RXD ultra wide-angle zoom lens for Sony APS-C E-mount mirrorless cameras.

The 150-500mm F / 5-6.7 Di III VC VXD (Model A057) is an extremely compact and high-quality Sony E-mount lens that overturns the conventional wisdom of super-telephoto zoom. While achieving a telephoto end of 500 mm, the size is 209.6 mm in length and the maximum diameter is φ93 mm, which makes it possible to take handheld shots comfortably. We are particular about image quality, and by adopting a lens configuration of 25 elements in 16 groups and a special glass material or composite aspherical lens, we suppress the occurrence of various aberrations such as chromatic aberration. In addition, it is equipped with a high-speed, high-precision linear motor focus mechanism VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) and a camera shake correction mechanism VC (Vibration Compensation), so you will not miss any moment. In addition, the shortest shooting distance of 0.6m at the wide-angle end of 150mm has been achieved, and usability has also been improved by adopting a tripod mount with a strap hole, a simple drip-proof structure that supports outdoor shooting, and an antifouling coat. I will. From landscapes to sports and wild animals, you can freely aim at the one you want to shoot. Please enjoy the powerful super-telephoto world.

A super-telephoto zoom lens exclusively for mirrorless cameras that has achieved an amazingly compact design.
