Want to capture surfing, birds, macro's, wildlife, or other distant sport? The Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 lens has got the focal length you need covered. Mount it on a cropped sensor DX camera and the lens reach becomes even beter.
The Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD A022 Gen2 lens features a super-handy vibration reduction system called VC. The vibration compensation system is rated up to 4.5 stops and will make low/dim light shooting and panning a lot easier as you can still get sharp results from shooting at much slower shutter speeds that you would have with a non IS/VR/VC lens.
Adding to the VC system's versatility is 3 switchable modes made for different shooting needs:
The standard mode, VC mode 1, uses conventional algorithms for a great balance between the stability of the viewfinder image and the stabilization effects.
VC mode 2 changes the compensation to suit panning.
VC mode 3 prioritizes the stabilisation of the captured images and forgoes the stabilisation of the viewfinder image.
Tamron SP 150-600 Generation 2 features an improved ring-type USD autofocus motor from the the first model. This motor provides accurate autofocus that is super-quick and near silent
The Tamron SP 150-600 G2 successfully breaks the minimum focus distance flaw of all previous superzooms with a really good minimum focus distance of 2.2m, giving it the best close focusing distance of all the 150-600's and beating most other super telephoto zooms. The close focusing distance, supertelephoto focal lengths, and background compression will make the lens suitable for unique close-ups.
The second generation Tamron 150-600 features a wide array of special lens elements and coatings to give the absolute best image possible.
Three LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements helps to greatly reduce the appearance of axial and transverse chromatic aberrations.
Anti-reflection coatings includes a eBAND (Extended Bandwidth and Angular-Dependency) coating and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coating. These coatings improves light transmission and suppresses internal reflections to reduce ghosting and flares.
The lens features 9 circular aperture blades to provide smooth and pleasant bokeh for increased background compression, helping to emphasise your subject.
The Tamron A022 SP 150-600mm Di VC USD G2 features a sealed construction with a fluorine compound to protect the lens form various elements while keeping it easy to clean. A rubber seal around the lens-mount keeps dust and moisture from getting into the camera, and a fluorine compound that is water- and oil-repellent makes the lens easier to wipe clean makes it is less vulnerable to the damages from dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints.
No more accidental barrel/zoom movements. The lens features a main zoom lock to keep the lens fixed at 150mm an making it ideal for storage or open transport, while an additional Flex Zoom Lock keeps the barrel/zoom fixed at any other focal length.
The Tamron 150-600mm G2 lens features a removable tripod lens foot. The lens foot features an arca-swiss dovetail type bottom, making it possible to a use it on almost any tripod head including gimbal and video.
The Tamron SP 150-600mm F5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 (A022) is compatible with two new teleconverters, one 1.4X, and one 2X, adding to the G2's already spectacular versatility. The teleconverters are both moisture and dust-resistant, and turn the 150-600mm into a 210-840mm or 300-1200mm equivalent zoom on 35mm full-frame.
With the optional TAP-in Console you can connect your lens to a pc via USB connection. Once connected you can effortlessly update your lenss firmware as well as fine-tune the autofocus and vibration compensation.
