The whole experience of optical technology, which Tamron has accumulated over the years as the pioneer of mega-zoom lenses is integrated in this lens. Also Tamron has included its own VC image stabilizer ( Vibration Compensation) technology which delivers sharp photos in critical situations. Images captured under bad lighting conditions or using the tele-setting are now made with much less blur due to vibrations. Also panning moving subjects is no problem for VC, and does not require switching over to a special mode.

This 28-300mm covers a huge focal length area from 28mm of wide-angle up to 300mm super-telephoto. On digital cameras with APS-C sensors the lens corresponds to a full-frame tele-zoom of 43mm to 465mm! Of course the VC technology works throughout the entire focal length range and it particularly displays its full power at the tele-end where the camera is especially susceptible for vibrations.

The designation “Di” (Digitally Integrated Design) marks a generation of lenses, which have been specially adapted to the higher requirements of digital SLR cameras (APS-C and full frame).

Ultra-long-range zoom with stabilization.
