**Tamron 35-150mm f/2.8-4 Di VC OSD ** offers a very useful focal range, from classic 35 mm wide angle to 150 mm tele photo. Thanks to a fast aperture (f/2.8-4), built-in image stabilization and high speed autofocus, the lens is ideal for many different types of subjects and shooting situations, from landscape to sports and portraits in available light. In other words, an ideal lens for all-round photography and travel!
The lens is available for Canon EF and Nikon F mount and is designed to be used on cameras with full-frame sensor (23x36 mm). However, it also works on cameras with APS-C sensor, where it provides an angle of view equivalent to 53-225 mm focal length for Nikon or 56-240 mm for Canon.
Fast and steady
Tamron 35-150mm f/2.8-4 Di VC OSD is equipped with dual processors to ensure maximum performance of the lens's image stabilization and autofocus. With the capability to minimize camera shake at up to 5 stops longer shutter speeeds than you would normally have to use for free-hand photography, the image stabilization is a valuable feature that allows you to shoot with greater freedom in available light.
Tamron's OSD motor (Optimized Silent Drive) provides fast, quiet and precise focus even on moving subjects. The minimum focus is only 45 cm throughout the focal length range, which gives a magnification of 0.27x (ratio 1:3.7) when using the lens at its longest telephoto setting. This allows you to shoot close-ups of plants, insects and other interesting details that you may encounter during your excursion.
Weather seals and advanced optical design
Tamron 35-150mm f/2.8-4 Di VC OSD is a well-built lens with elegant design and a weather sealed barrel. Rubber gaskets in all moving parts are used to prevent moisture from penetrating, and the front lens element has fluorine coating that repels rain drops, grease and dust and makes it easy to clean.
The advanced optical design includes three aspherical elements that are used to assure high sharpness all the way out to the edges at all focal lengths. Three elements of LD glass (Low Dispersion) counteract chromatic aberration, unwanted color bleeding. The aperture has nine blades to provide an opening as round as possible and soft rendering of details that are out of focus.
Tamron 35-150mm f/2.8-4 Di VC OSD is also compatible with the Tamron Tap-in Console accessory which includes a USB port for computer connection. With this, the user can update the lens firmware and fine-tune its autofocus and image stabilization.
