Who doesn’t love a fantastic giveaway? And a new LENS at that? Doesn’t get much better! One of our fabulous CM vendors, the wonderful folks at Tamron, have given us one of their new lenses to give away on the CM blog.
You may remember the great review that Sarah Phillips did of Tamron’s new AF18-270MM F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens. If you missed it, you can find all the details along with some great examples of what this lens is capable of here. This lens is available for Canon, Nikon and Sony camera bodies.
Tamron’s next generation 18-270mm, the world’s lightest, smallest 15x zoom optimized for use on APS-C- DSLRs, continues the pursuit of the ideal all-in one zoom lens. Combining prior award-winning achievements with new engineering breakthroughs yielded the remarkable 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Piezo Drive). Special piezoelectric technology now delivers faster, quieter precision autofocusing. Tamron’s exclusive tri-axial VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization, featuring three pairs of driving coils and low-function ball bearings placed around the VC optical group, combats camera shake-related image blur. It’s Tamron VC that allows handheld shooting at as many as four shutter speeds slower than otherwise possible with a dramatically stable viewfinder experience. Compactness and light weight are preserved, thanks in part to the VC mechanism’s newly-developed moving coil mechanism.
Defining compositional freedom the 18-270mm Di-II VC’s incredible 15x zoom range provides a 35mm picture angle equivalency of 28mm to 419mm, with image fidelity assured by advanced optical design featuring LD glass and aspherical optics, working in concert to render crisp, colorful and faithful images.
