Holiday 2015: Tamron 16–300mm f/3.5–6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro Lens


An All-in-One Lens for the Ultimate Shooting Flexibility

As your budding David Beckham or Mia Hamm kicks the winning goal, Tamron’s 18.8x telephoto zoom lens will capture the thrilling moment far better than any smartphone! The all-in-one lens can bring the action in close, take in sweeping vistas and capture fine details just 15 inches away. Plus, its Vibration Compensation image stabilization system lets you shoot without worrying about blur.

Tamron’s high-performance, high-power zoom lens for digital SLR cameras with APS-C-size sensors was designed in response to consumer demand for expanded focal lengths—both at the wide-angle end of the zoom range and the telephoto end. The result is a versatile lens that can handle any shooting situation.

The lens has a wider viewing angle than is possible with conventional high-power zoom lenses, providing a minimum focal length of 16mm for true wide-angle shooting. At the telephoto end, the maximum focal length was increased to an impressive 300mm. This means you get a compact lens you never have to change out to get any shot you want.

Want to capture your child’s joy, aglow with candlelight, the moment she makes her birthday wish, don’t grab for a smartphone. This remarkable compact lens with VC image stabilization and a fast PZD autofocus motor will get you the incredibly clear, sharp photo you want, no matter the light or distance!

You’ll also get exceptional framing flexibility since you can easily adjust the angle of view using the lens’s convenient zoom ring. And its minimum focus distance of 15.3 inches makes it possible to get right up close to your subject to enjoy stress-free macro photography.

That’s not all this lens can give you: if you want a photo that looks like a portrait taken by a pro and not a smartphone selfie, this premium zoom should be your choice. Its cutting-edge lens design, superb glass elements and close-focusing distance combine to get you the perfect, detailed portrait, even shooting handheld.

The Tamron 16–300mm lens makes full use of specialized glass elements to compensate for optical aberrations. In addition, the latest coating technology suppresses reflections on lens surfaces to minimize unwanted flare and ghosting—assuring sharp, crisp, high-contrast images—even at night. Shooting amazing nighttime photos demands advanced optics and engineering, which is exactly what this 18.8x zoom lens provides. Its Vibration Compensation and speedy Piezo Drive make it a lens you can rely on for crisp, detailed wide-angle to long-telephoto low-light shots.

Beneficial features include: an advanced PZD (Piezo Drive) standing-wave ultrasonic motor that delivers faster, quieter, more precise autofocus; Tamron’s acclaimed Vibration Compensation mechanism to reduce blur caused by camera shake, even when shooting handheld at long telephoto settings; and a moisture-resistant body.

So if you only get one chance to preserve precious memories, this versatile lens will deliver like no smartphone can. With a broad spectrum of focal lengths, from 16mm to 300mm plus macro, you’ll capture everything from tack-sharp sweeping panoramas to intimate interiors and flawless close-ups.

The Tamron 16–300mm f/3.5–6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro lens is available in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts (the latter without VC). MSRP: $629.
