The Tamron SP 150-600mm G2 ultra-telephoto lens with upgraded optical performance enables handheld shooting with remarkable definition.
Intuitive design plus cutting-edge performance
The metal exterior of the SP 150-600mm G2 is a comfortable size and weight for handheld shooting. The focus and zoom rings, textured grip and Arca-Swiss style tripod interface enhance speed and utility. And like all SP models, this new lens has an ergonomic shape for easy gripping and a lens hood with smooth curves that match the barrel.
Enhanced optics meet greater versatility
The SP 150-600mm G2 includes three LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements
which completely eliminate axial and transverse chromatic aberrations. It also
features upgraded optical construction (21 elements in 13 groups).
Anti-reflection technologies, eBAND (Extended Bandwidth and Angular-
Dependency) Coating and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating improve
light transmission and suppress internal reflections, including light reflected off
the camera’s image sensors. So even when taking a backlit or semi-backlit
photograph, ghosting and flare caused by reflected light are fully eliminated.
Additional enhancements expand the lens’s versatility. For example, MOD (Minimum Object Distance) has been reduced to 2.2m (86.6 in) so you can enjoy tele-macro photography and dramatic bokeh.
Sharpness and accuracy
The Model A022 is equipped with a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ring-type motor that delivers excellent responsiveness and control. AF speed is significantly improved from current model, and it enables accurate high-speed focus even when capturing moving subjects.
Keep it steady with improved VC
The VC (Vibration Compensation) effectiveness is
equivalent to 4.5 stops, based on image
stabilization performance levels established by
CIPA (Camera and Imaging Products Association)
when using in VC MODE 3. SP 150-600mm G2
has three types of VC modes.
FLEX ZOOM LOCK
FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism quickly locks or unlocks the zoom at any position simply by sliding the zoom ring. Photographers can shoot from any angle without the zoom extending unintentionally. Additionally, the conventional Zoom Lock switch prevents unwanted barrel
extension during transportation.
Fluorine Coating and Moisture-Resistant Construction
The front surface of the lens element is coated
with a protective fluorine compound that is waterand
oil-repellant. The lens surface is easier to wipe
clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging
effects of dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints. For greater protection when shooting outdoors,
leak-proof seals throughout the lens barrel help
protect your equipment.
