Tamron introduces a new mega travel zoom with a focal range of 18-270mm. Tamron still holds the world record in the focal length range for SLR lenses1. The lens features a newly developed piezo ultrasonic motor, which ensures a silent, precise and extraordinary fast autofocus. Furthermore the unique ( VC) vibration technology was improved to allow for a more compact design. The lens convinces with its high level of usability, featuring a focal length range which covers just about every photographic situation. Its compactness and light-weight construction make it the ideal travel companion. The lens not only covers everything from wide-angle for landscape to tele for close-up photography, but also offers light-macro capability at a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3,8 throughout the focal length range, to magnify the small things in life.

1 As per December 3rd, 2010. The Tamron model B003 also has an equivalent focal length range of 18-270mm.

2 The Sony mount is not equipped with the VC image stabilization mechanism, as the body of Sony’s digital SLR cameras has a built-in image stabilization function. Consequently, the lens with a Sony mount is referred to as
the 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II PZD and does not include the VC description.
