Details from Tamron

    World Acclaimed Ultra–Telephoto Zoom Reborn

    The SP 150–600mm G2 (Generation 2) ultra–telephoto lens with upgraded optical performance enables handheld shooting with remarkable definition. This new lens builds upon the success of the current SP 150–600mm (Model A011) which Tamron first introduced in December, 2013, including better overall optical performance and faster AF speed, VC enhancements, plus Fluorine Coating, FLEX ZOOM LOCK and tele converter. Rebuilt from the ground up to meet Tamron’s strict quality standards and design specifications, this new zoom combines smart engineering and high performance with quality craftsmanship, durability and user friendliness.

    Enhanced Optics Meet Greater Versatility

    The SP 150–600mm G2 includes three LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements which completely eliminate axial and transverse chromatic aberrations. It also features upgraded optical construction (21 elements in 13 groups). Anti–reflection technologies, eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular–Dependency) Coating and BBAR (Broad–Band Anti–Reflection) Coating improve light transmission and suppress internal reflections, including light reflected off the camera’s image sensors. So even when taking a backlit or semi–backlit photograph, ghosting and flare caused by reflected light are fully eliminated. Additional enhancements expand the lens’ versatility. For example, MOD (Minimum Object Distance) has been reduced to 2.2m (86.6 in) so you can enjoy tele–macro photography and dramatic bokeh.

    Capture The Moment With Sharpness And Accuracy

    The Model A022 is equipped with the USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ring–type motor that delivers excellent responsiveness and control. AF speed is significantly improved from current model, and it enables accurate high–speed focus even when capturing moving subjects. When shooting with AF, the Full–time Manual Focus override allows you to instantly make fine focusing adjustments manually, without having to switch between modes.

    Keep It Steady With Improved VC

    The VC (Vibration Compensation) effectiveness is equivalent to 4.5 stops, based on image stabilization performance levels established by CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) when using in VC MODE 3. Model A022 now has three types of VC modes, and it is possible to choose the optimum VC mode according to the situation for taking a photograph, such as when wishing to pan the camera. The improved VC minimizes blurring caused by slight camera movement, which is prevalent with long telephoto lenses and even more troublesome with higher–resolution cameras. VC enhances the freedom of hand–held shooting at slower shutter speeds required by low–light conditions such as dusk.

    FLEX ZOOM LOCK Mechanism Enables Zoom Lock At Any Position

    FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism quickly locks or unlocks the zoom at any position simply by sliding the zoom ring. Photographers can shoot from any angle without the zoom extending unintentionally. Additionally, the customary Zoom Lock switch prevents unwanted barrel extension during transportation.

    The Pursuit Of Functional Beauty Is Applied To Every Aspect Of The New Ultra–Telephoto Zoom

    This design philosophy in pursuit of functional beauty with a “Human Touch” is applied even to minute details for the SP 150–600mm G2 ultra–telephoto lens as well. The design includes the front portion of the lens composed of curved surfaces that comfortably fit in the palm of a photographer’s hand, the focus ring and zoom ring with the groove width optimized to improve user–friendliness, the focus limiter switch allowing for easy operation, the easy–to–hold grip compatible with the Arca–Swiss type quick release system, and other features. The lens hood with smooth curves that fit the lens barrel has a design that allows for its easy attachment and removal. While using metal as the exterior material and adding numerous new functions such as the FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism, the SP 150–600mm G2 achieves a size and weight making comfortable handheld shooting possible, with a slim and stylish appearance design to top it all off.

    Two Exclusive New Tele Converters

    Two exclusive tele converters, which match the optics of the new SP 150–600mm G2, offer 1.4x and 2.0x magnification, and provide a maximum zoom range up to 1200mm. These new tele converters extend focal length of the master lens, making it possible to take pictures in farther ultra–telephoto ranges.

    Reduce Flare And Ghosting With eBAND and BBAR

    Two highly developed lens coating technologies, eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular–Dependency), which uses nanotechnology, and BBAR (Broad–Band Anti–Reflection) combine to increase light transmission and to reduce flare and ghosting to imperceptible levels. The lens delivers high contrast, sharp and clear images.

    Electromagnetic Diaphragm System Compatible With Nikon Cameras

    An electromagnetic diaphragm system, which has been a standard feature for Canon-mount lenses, is employed in Nikon-mount lenses*. More precise diaphragm and aperture control is possible because the diaphragm blades are driven and controlled by a motor through electronic pulse signals.

    Lightweight, Easy–To–Hold Tripod Mount Is Compatible With An Arca–Swiss Type Quick–Release Plate

    A new textured grip and Arca–Swiss style tripod interface enhance both speed and utility. And because the tripod mount is made of lightweight magnesium, it is much easier to carry.

    Fluorine Coating For Protection And Safe Cleaning

    The front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water– and oil–repellant. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints.

    Moisture–Resistant Construction Protects Your Lens

    For greater protection when shooting outdoors, leak–proof seals throughout the lens barrel help protect your equipment.

    Compatible With The TAMRON TAP–In Console™

    The optional TAP–in Console™ provides a USB connection to your personal computer, enabling you to easily update your lens’s firmware as well as customize features including fine adjustments to the AF and VC.

    Intuitive Design Plus Cutting–Edge Performance

    The new design adopted for the four fixed focal lens models in the SP series already on the market is essentially a fusion of engineering and style, in pursuit of functional beauty and craftsmanship by paying thorough attention to minute details. With metal used as the exterior material, a high–grade design has been created based on the design concept that emphasizes “Human Touch” characteristics, with user–friendliness considerably improved as a result. Those SP models feature a novel design for the switches, easy–to–read characters, an enlarged window over the distance scale, and the adoption of organic forms easy for the photographer’s fingers to hold onto.
