Tamron has patented yet another lens for mirrorless cameras. The new 28-320mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC lens follows into the footsteps of five other optics, whose patents showed up online in early 2015.
Tamron keeps on patenting lenses in early 2015. The newest model is referring to a 28-320mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC optic, which could become an all-round zoom lens in the future.
The new zoom lens has been designed to cover full frame image sensors from mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. It has been patented in the company’s home country, Japan, and it proves that Tamron is very serious at extending its already-impressive zoom lens line-up with another unit.
Tamron 28-320mm f/3.5-6.3 DI III VC lens patented for full frame mirrorless cameras
The Tamron 28-320mm f/3.5-6.3 DI III VC lens patent has been discovered in Japan. It is describing a new lens for full frame mirrorless cameras with a focal range starting at the wide-angle length of 28mm and ending at the telephoto length of 320mm.
Its maximum aperture is not among the brightest available on the market. However, this optic is aimed at photographers who do not want to swap lenses during their vacations or travels.
Nevertheless, the lens features built-in Vibration Compensation technology, which will certainly be of help at the telephoto end and in low-light conditions.
Tamron has released the 16-300mm version for APS-C cameras in recent years. Usually, these models start at 18mm, so photographers have welcomed the wider field of view. If the new lens becomes official, then users will certainly appreciate getting a little closer to the action, as most makers are offering all-round lenses ending at 300mm.
Tamron has already patented five other zoom lenses this year
It all started with the 14-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC lens, which has been designed for mirrorless cameras with APS-C-sized sensors. Tamron patented this optic in mid-January, while a few days later it patented the 18-105mm f/4-5.6 Di III VC lens, which is also aimed at MILCs with APS-C image sensors.
Both these units have been followed by the 70-200mm f/4 Di III VC lens that will be compatible with mirrorless shooters bearing APS-C sensors and the 9-135mm f/3.5-5.6 DI III lens, which will work with MILCs employing 1-inch-type sensors.
The fifth model consists of the 70-300mm f/4-6.3 DI III, which is also intended for use in 1-inch-type mirrorless cameras, such as the Nikon 1-series. For the time being, neither of these models has showed up on the market, but stay tuned to find out if they do!
