If your child is playing the outfield, this compact telephoto zoom will bring you up close to capture the big play better than any smartphone. With best-in-class resolution for sharp, frame-filling shots, it boasts Vibration Compensation (VC) technology to let you shoot without worrying about blur from camera shake. You won’t get that from a smartphone camera.
This state-of-the-art telephoto zoom lens is the culmination of decades of Tamron innovation in ultra-long-range zoom optics. It’s engineered to provide professional and photo enthusiast users of full-frame and APS-C-format digital SLR cameras with the ultimate in image quality and handling—delivering an incredible 109–465mm equivalent on APS-C-format DSLRs.
Built to exacting SP (superior performance) standards, it delivers ultra-high resolution across the image field at all focal lengths, along with the first-ever, energy-efficient USD (ultrasonic silent drive) for ultrafast autofocusing and responsiveness. And with Tamron’s built-in VC system that combats the effects of camera shake, you’re assured of sharp images even when shooting handheld.
The SP 70–300mm lens’s premium LD (low dispersion) and XLD glass provide superior resolution and imaging performance over its entire range. BBAR multi-coatings control flare, while internal focusing improves close-up performance down to an impressive 1:4 macro. This high-performance lens comes in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts (the latter without VC). MSRP: $449. tamron-usa.com
