Expand your options with high-power zooming from 16mm wide-angle with the Tamron USA 16-300mm Di VC Lens. Spanning an ultra-wide spectrum of focal lengths, this all-in-one zoom lens is a supremely versatile photographic tool. Now, Tamron sets a new standard with a revolutionary 18.8X zoom lens for APS-C sized digital SLR cameras. This single lens covers 16mm to 300mm and provides macro focusing down to 1:2.9. It combines our latest advances in optical design, including the deployment of aspherical elements and newly developed glass, with multiple layers of coating to produce clear, sharp images while maintaining compact dimensions. VC (Vibration Compensation) employs three driving coils that electromagnetically activate a shake-compensating VC lens group. Even when shooting long-range or under low light, the viewfinder image remains stable and the tracking response is excellent. With Tamron's PZD (Piezo Drive), autofocusing is noticeably faster and quieter. You can capture crisp images spontaneously, even in noise-sensitive situations. There is enhanced support for contrast-detection AF capabilities and focusing when in live-view mode is smoother. Full-time manual override lets you make fine focus adjustments at any time without having to switch out of autofocus mode. This lens also features advanced optical and mechanical design technology to achieve high image quality in a compact, lightweight zoom. The cutting-edge design consists of 16 elements in 12 groups and includes three Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, two LD (Low Dispersion) elements and UXR (Ultra-Extra Refractive Index) glass. Together they correct optical aberrations while state-of-the-art multi-layer coating significantly minimizes ghosting and flare to deliver images of exceptional clarity. The entire package is kept incredibly compact through the use of advanced mechanical design engineering. The rubber grips on the zoom and focus rings have a rectilinear grid pattern that adds sophistication to the design, while the signature Tamron brand ring in tungsten silver enhances its luxurious finish. Its moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens. Model: AFB016N-700.
