BEST TELEPHOTO ZOOM LENS

Excerpt from the Award Citation of the TIPA Jury

This fast, versatile zoom can serve equally well as a landscape, wedding candid, portrait or travel lens. Versatility extends to its full compatibility with various camera features, including Fast Hybrid and Eye AF, a close focusing distance 0.85 m (33.5 inch), and Tamron’s VXD, a quick and quiet linear motor that is ideal for video and still photography alike. Portability is another attractive feature, one that encourages always packing this lens. Compact and lightweight, it’s a mere 15 cm (5.9 inches) at the 70 mm and weighs a mere 0.8 kg (28.6 oz), plus special weather-sealing and lens coating allows for secure use even in inclement weather. And having a constant aperture throughout the focal length range means full advantage can be taken of bokeh effects for portraits and nature photography alike.
