Tamron SP150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 (Model A022) for Canon
This design philosophy in pursuit of functional beauty with a “Human Touch” is applied even to minute details for the SP 150-600mm G2 ultra-telephoto lens as well.
The design includes the front portion of the lens composed of curved surfaces that comfortably fit in the palm of a photographer’s hand, the focus ring and zoom ring with the groove width optimized to improve user-friendliness, the focus limiter switch allowing for easy operation, the easy-to-hold grip compatible with the Arca-Swiss type quick release system, and other features. The lens hood with smooth curves that fit the lens barrel has a design that allows for its easy attachment and removal. While using metal as the exterior material and adding numerous new functions such as the FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism, the SP 150-600mm G2 achieves a size and weight making comfortable handheld shooting possible, with a slim and stylish appearance design to top it all off.
The SP 150-600mm G2 (Generation 2) ultra-telephoto lens with upgraded optical performance enables handheld shooting with remarkable definition. This new lens builds upon the success of the current SP 150-600mm (Model A011) which Tamron first introduced in December, 2013, including better overall optical performance and faster AF speed, VC enhancements, plus Fluorine Coating, FLEX ZOOM LOCK and tele converter.
Enhanced optics meet greater versatility
The SP 150-600mm G2 includes three LD (Low
Dispersion) lens elements which completely eliminate axial and
transverse chromatic aberrations. It also features upgraded optical
construction (21 elements in 13 groups).
Anti-reflection technologies, eBAND (Extended
Bandwidth and Angular-Dependency) Coating and BBAR (Broad-Band
Anti-Reflection) Coating improve light transmission and suppress
internal reflections, including light reflected off the camera’s image
sensors. So even when taking a backlit or semi-backlit photograph,
ghosting and flare caused by reflected light are fully eliminated.
Additional enhancements expand the lens’s
versatility. For example, MOD (Minimum Object Distance) has been reduced
to 2.2m so you can enjoy tele-macro photography and dramatic bokeh.
Capture the moment with sharpness and accuracy
The Model A022 is equipped with a USD (Ultrasonic
Silent Drive) ring-type motor that delivers excellent responsiveness and
control. AF speed is significantly improved from current model, and it
enables accurate high-speed focus even when capturing moving subjects.
VC (Vibration Compensation)The VC Image Stabilizer delivers sharp and shake-free images, as well as a smooth viewfinder image.
USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)Powerful ultrasonic motor for quick and dynamic subjects. It is extremely quiet, precise and allows manual control at any time.
eBAND CoatingNano-structured lens coating to protect against unwanted reflection and ghosting.
LD (Low Dispersion)Lens element for greater image sharpness and the correction of chromatic aberration.
Zoom Lock (ZL) MechanismProtects against undesired extension of the lens barrel.
