Tamron’s final announcement of the day consists of the 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD lens designed for full frame cameras from Canon and Nikon.
Earlier in 2014, Tamron introduced the 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens for digital cameras with APS-C image sensors. Now, the company is proposing a modified version aimed at cameras with full frame sensors. The new 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD lens is official and will become available by the end of June with a competitive price tag.
Tamron introduces 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD lens for Canon and Nikon full frame DSLRs
One of the reasons why Tamron is so popular among photographer consists of the company’s ability to provide high-quality all-in-one superzoom lenses.
After announcing the 18-200mm optic for Canon EOS M cameras and the 14-150mm optic for Micro Four Thirds, the Japanese maker has launched the 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD lens.
The product comes packed with cutting-edge optical design that includes four Low Dispersion elements, a trio of aspherical elements, a single hybrid aspherical element, and an Ultra-Extra Refractive Index elements. They will reduce chromatic aberrations and provide very sharp images.
Additionally, the lens is covered in a Broad-Band Anti-Reflection coating that cuts down ghosting and flare, further increasing the quality of the image.
Tamron says its Piezo Drive AF motor will deliver very fast, precise, and quiet autofocus
The Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD lens comes with Vibration Compensation system, preventing camera shakes from negatively influencing your photos.
In addition, the Piezo Drive autofocus motor is an ultrasonic system that offers quick, accurate, and silent autofocus. However, the optic comes with a full-time manual focus should you not trust the AF system.
The company has confirmed that its new superzoom lens will be able to focus on subjects standing at a minimum distance of 49 centimeters.
Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD lens will be released this month for a price a little under $850
This model is the biggest of the three Tamron lenses launched today. It measures 96mm in length and 74mm in diameter, while weighing 540 grams. It is worth pointing out the fact that its filter thread stands at 67mm.
Tamron will release the 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD lens for Canon and Nikon full frame DSLRs on June 26 for a price of $849, which is quite a low price considering the features of the optic.
The manufacturer will produce a Sony A-mount version, too. However, it will be released later this year and it will not come packed with VC technology because Sony cameras are already graced by the presence of built-in image stabilization.
