Tamron Announces 150-600mm f/5-6.3 VC Superzoom (Update)


Update: thanks to reader Steve, here is last year’s patent for the lens.

We thought it was an already amazing 150-500mm lens but Tamron surprised us with a even broader zoom range: 150-600mm, and it has image stabilization (VC).

Cutting-edge eBAND Coating*¹ and three LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements deliver superior imaging performance, while the latest built-in VC (Vibration Compensation)*² system broadens users’ horizons in achieving sharper handheld photographs.

Specifications and press release after the break.
