Tamron Announces a Super-Telephoto 150-500mm and Ultra-Wide 11-20mm Lenses
Tamron has recently announced two new lenses that offer an incredible range of focal lengths. The first lens is the Tamron SP 150-500mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2, which is a super-telephoto lens that offers an extended focal length of up to 500mm. It features a special coating technology called eBAND that cuts out ghosting and flare and a new Ultrasonic Silent Drive Motor for fast and smooth autofocus. It also features Tamron’s Vibration Compensation to reduce the effects of camera shake.
The second lens announced is an ultra-wide angle lens: the Tamron SP 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD. This lens is designed for use with Sony’s APS-C mirrorless cameras, and provides an ultra-wide field of view. It has a fast maximum aperture of F/2.8, allowing for great low-light performance. It also features RXD (Rapid eXtra-low Dispersion) elements, which help to reduce chromatic aberration and deliver sharp images. It also has an aperture ring and an integrated AF/MF switch for quick and easy switching between autofocus and manual focus.
For photographers looking for a broad range of focal lengths, these two new lenses from Tamron offer a great combination of performance and versatility. The 150-500mm’s extended range of 500mm gives you the ability to capture distant subjects without having to carry around a large and bulky lens. And the 11-20mm ultra-wide angle lens is perfect for landscape photographers that need to capture the full range of a scene. Both lenses are expected to be available in the near future, so stay tuned for more information.
