Tamron VC 28-300 F3.5-6.3 AF (28-300mm) DI LD XR Canon-Fit Lens


Tamron announced the introduction of new Tamron VC 28-300mm lens with Vibration Compensation ability. This lens is the new revised version of old Tamron 28-300 Canon Camera Fit lens . It is designed exclusively for Canon digital cameras. The Tamron VC 28-300 is an excellent lens to have because it has wide range zooming quality. Tamron introduced the new Vibration Compensation-(VC) mechanism in Tamron VC 28-300 F3.5-6.3 AF lens. This Vibration Compensation (VC) mechanism allows TamronVC 28-300mm lenses deliver sharply focused photographs in situations where camera vibration mostly occurs. It is made up of three* coil system. Three steel balls originate signals which helps the three driving coils to move the VC lens electromagnetically. This special type of Tamron lenses falls in Di-(Digitally Integrated) category. These Di lenses are designed especially for exclusive use with digital cameras.

Tamron VC 28-300 (28-300mm) LD lens is equipped with Aspherical lenses which eliminates the distortion. It also features XR-Extra Refractive Index glass optics which provides high resolution and colour saturation.

Main Features

1. Vibration Compensation (VC) Image Stabilization Mechanism

The Vibration Compensation mechanism developed by Tamron Corporation, contains three driving coils connected with three slide balls in optical system of Tamron VC 28-300mm F3.5-6.3 AF Di lens. The lenses of the compensator are fully supported by rolling friction caused by the slide balls. This increases the performance of Tamron 28-300 immensely. For detection of hand shake, the gyro sensor is installed. This accurate gyro sensor is very useful to reduce the vibration effects. Due to this VC mechanism, Tamron VC AF 28-300mm lens produce clear and sharp images.

Its optical system contains XR-High Refractive Index glass elements (well known for producing high resolution pictures), Glass Molded Aspherical lens-GM elements (eliminates the distortion and vignetting), Hybrid Aspherical elements, Low Dispersion-LD glass elements (Compensates chromatic aberrations which usually cause in digital SLR Cameras) and Anomalous Dispersion-AD lens elements. Due to high technology optical system, Tamron VC 28-300 lens gives high resolution, bright and sharp results.

3. Macro Photography
