28-300mm F/3.5–6.3 Di VC PZD
Lightweight, compact high-power zoom lens with image stabilisation and fast, accurate autofocus
As full-frame digital SLRs are more widely used by travellers and enthusiasts, their best partner is a a responsive, accurate high-power zoom lens. This All-In-One™ 28-300mm lens delivers superb image quality in a remarkably compact, lightweight package.
Tamron's acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism reduces image blur caused by camera shake to deliver sharp images even when shooting handheld in low light or at the telephoto end*. The PZD (Piezo Drive) provides noticeably faster, quieter autofocus action, allowing users to capture spontaneous moments in crisp images and to continue to shoot even when quiet operation is required.
Focus on portability
The lens is now even smaller and lighter In addition to state-of-the-art optical design that facilitates downsizing of the lens body, the mechanical design, which incorporates a highly sophisticated multi-stack-cam layout that takes up far less space, and PZD (Piezo Drive), an autofocus drive system with a simpler, more compact structure, has made it possible to reduce the overall dimensions of this lens.
