Impressive and innovative, lenses bearing the SP logo are designed to a higher standard over traditional lenses. The Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6.3 G2 Telephoto Zoom Lens suits photographers who demand the very best.
VC (Vibration Compensation)
On the Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6.3 G2 Telephoto Zoom Lens (model A022), Vibration Compensation (VC) is 4.5 stops and has three different modes. The standard VC mode 1 strikes a balance between the stability of the viewfinder image and the stabilization effects, VC mode 2 is for panning, and VC mode 3 prioritizes the stabilization of captured images, forgoing the stabilization of the viewfinder image.
USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)
At the heart of the Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6.3 G2 Telephoto Zoom Lens' outstanding responsiveness and control is an Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) motor. Over its predecessor, this ultra-zoom lens is optimized with faster AF speed--the accuracy you need especially when you're capturing fast moving objects such as car races or sports action.
eBand (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating
The Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6.3 G2 Telephoto Zoom Lens incorporates Tamron's own Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency coating. This unique optical coating technology significantly reduces flare and ghosting which can ruin an otherwise perfect image.
This nano-structured layer is paired with an advanced layer of anti-reflective multi-coatings to yield sharp, crisp photo results.
ZL (Zoom Lock)
The new Zoom Lock mechanism introduced on this second generation telephoto zoom lens is designed to rapidly lock or unlocks the zoom. This handy function works at any position with the simple slide of the lens' zoom ring. Capture images from any angle and travel with the confidence that the zoom won't accidently extend in the middle of shooting or transporting.
FLR (Fluorine Compensation)
For advanced protection from the dirt, dust, moisture, and fingerprints, a water and oil repellant fluorine compound coating tops the front surface of the lens element. The Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6.3 G2 Telephoto Zoom Lens' construction incorporates leak-proof seals throughout the lens barrel, offering optimal equipment protection when you're shooting outdoors in harsh weather conditions.
