Two lenses receive prestigious award

August 15, 2014, Saitama, Japan – Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono), a leading manufacturer of precision optics, has announced that the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) has presented its European Lens 2014-2015 awards to two Tamron lenses; 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO (Model B016) for “European DSLR Zoom Lens 2014-2015” and SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A011) for “European DSLR Telephoto Zoom Lens 2014-2015.”

VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron’s proprietary image stabilization mechanism. The Sony mount models do not include VC since Sony DSLR bodies include image stabilization functionality. The name of the Sony mount models are “16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II PZD MACRO” and “SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di USD” without the VC designation.

Excerpt from the Award Citation of the EISA Jury

European DSLR Zoom Lens 2014-2015 – 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO

The Tamron 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro is a world first, combining a super-wide angle to super-telephoto focal range in a single lens. Designed for APS-C-format DSLR cameras, its huge 18.8x zoom range is equivalent to 24-450mm on full-frame DSLRs, while its usable maximum aperture of F3.5-6.3 makes use of Tamron’s exclusive vibration compensation (VC) to minimise camera movement during shooting. Many photographers will appreciate the close focusing distance of 39cm. In spite of this stellar feature list, the Tamron 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro is just 10cm long and weighs only 540g.

The Tamron 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD lens is an innovative ultra-telephoto zoom lens for Canon, Nikon and Sony full-frame and APS-C-format DSLR cameras. Its VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilisation ensures sharp images, hand-held, at shutter speeds lower than previously achievable, the high-speed AF (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) helps achieve precise focusing even on moving subjects, while the eBand coating works to reduce unwanted light reflections. Wildlife, nature and sports photographers will enjoy the advantages of this ultra-telephoto lens with its superb image quality and affordable price.

EISA Awards

The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) presents awards each year to products judged to be the best in photographic, audiovisual, and video product categories. A panel of editors from over 50 leading imaging, sound, and electronic industry magazines in 20 European countries review and vote to determine the leading products on the market.
