Tamron announced three new lenses - 18-200mm lens for Canon EOS M, 14-150mm lens for MFT and a 28-300mm lens for full frame DSLR cameras:

Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III VC lens for Canon EOS M mount (Model B011)

Tamron 18-200mm F:3.5-6.3 Di III VC lens for Canon EOS M mount (Model B011)

Product Highlights:

  • This high-power, 18-200mm, lightweight and compact zoom lens weighing 16.2 ounces with a 62mm filter is designed for mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. Equipped with Tamron’s acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation), the lens enables easy handheld shooting from 18mm wide angle to 200mm full telephoto.
  • Employing two (Low Dispersion) elements, three Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, one XR (high refractive index) element, and one Hybrid Aspherical element, the lens delivers astounding image quality by reducing aberrations to a bare minimum.
  • The lens boasts a striking appearance worthy of mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera designs. The metallic lens barrel exterior is available in two colors: black and silver.
  • The lens also has a stepping motor adopted for the AF drive, a construction that accommodates Contrast-detection AF and shooting video. This feature also supports Direct Manual Focus (DMF) function, which allows the user to make fine manual adjustments after initially focusing by AF.
  • Price: $499

Tamron 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD full frame lens (Model A010) for DSLR cameras

Tamron 28-300mm F:3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD full frame lens (Model A010) for DSLR cameras

Product Highlights

  • State-of-the-art optical design technology delivers superior image quality.
    The advanced optical construction of this lens includes four elements of LD (Low Dispersion) glass, three Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, one Hybrid Aspherical element, one XR (Extra Refractive Index) glass element, and one element of UXR (Ultra-Extra Refractive Index) glass, which has greater refractive index than XR. The full use of specialized glass elements in its design contributes to making this outstanding lens as compact and lightweight as possible, while minimizing aberrations, resulting in superior image quality. Particularly impressive is the thorough compensation of chromatic aberrations at the telephoto end, yielding images of enhanced clarity and crispness.
  • Focus on portability - The lens is now even smaller and lighter.
    In addition to state-of-the-art optical design that facilitates downsizing of the lens body, the mechanical design leads to a smaller overall lens compared to the existing Tamron 28-300mm (Model A20). The incorporation of a highly sophisticated multi-stack-cam layout that takes up far less space as well as the PZD (Piezo Drive) AF, an autofocus drive system with a simpler, more compact structure, make it possible to reduce the overall dimensions of this lens. These technologies are the fruit of Tamron’s more than 20 years of research and development in the high-power zoom lens field.
  • Advanced anti-reflection coating.
    The application of BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coatings for suppressing reflections on lens element surfaces minimizes unwanted flare and ghosting to deliver sharp, crisp, high-contrast images.
  • Upgraded cosmetic design – Elegant tungsten silver brand ring.
    Tamron has upgraded the cosmetic design and finish of this lens to create a more sophisticated, high-end look in keeping with the demands of discerning full-frame DSLR users. Employing a sophisticated linear pattern rubber grip on the zoom and focus rings and an elegant tungsten silver brand ring, this newly designed model accentuates its visceral presence with understated elegance and class.
  • PZD (Piezo Drive) delivers faster, quieter autofocus action.
    The PZD (Piezo Drive), a standing-wave ultrasonic motor system, delivers faster, quieter, more precise action when the autofocus is engaged. The full-time manual focus system is easy and intuitive, enabling quick and convenient manual focus at any time.
  • Sharper images with VC (Vibration Compensation)
    Tamron’s acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism reduces image blur caused by camera shake to deliver significantly sharper images even when shooting handheld.
  • Circular diaphragm facilitates achieving spectacular blur effects
    Using a circular diaphragm4 , this lens achieves spectacular background blur effects that enable creative use of depth of field.
  • Moisture-resistant construction for worry-free outdoor shooting.
    Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.
  • Price: $849
