High Power Zoom Lens with Built-in Advanced VC Mechanism, Covering 465mm-equivalent Angle of View and Designed for 35mm Full-size SLR Cameras

Tamron's AF28-300mm VC zoom lens has been highly evaluated by many photographers the world over since the introduction of the lens in October 2007, as a compact and high power zoom lens providing stabilized viewfinder images. The lens covers an angle of view equivalent to that of a 465mm ultra telephoto lens when mounted on a digital SLR camera equipped with an APS-C size image sensor. The ultra telephoto range is one where Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism exhibits its compensation performance to the maximum extent. The lens enables the user to enjoy ultra telephotography with amazingly stabilized viewfinder images. The lens covers an angle of view equivalent to 43mm at its wideangle end, allowing the user to respond to a wider variety of scenes than tele-zoom lenses in the 70-300mm class do.
