Like all Tamron's latest premium SP (Super Performance) lenses, the Model A011 is enhanced by VC (Vibration Compensation)* image stabilisation and USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) for speedy, precise autofocus. State-of-the-art eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating, a nanotechnology-based coating technique recently developed by Tamron, significantly reduces the unwanted light reflections that cause flare and ghosting.
Designed for full-frame DLSRs, this lens has a stunning equivalent focal length range of 233mm to 930mm when mounted on an APS-C size DSLR.
*The Sony mount does not include VC, since Sony digital SLR bodies include built-in image stabilisation functionality. The product name for Sony cameras is "SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di USD (Model A011)", without the VC designation.
