Picture this. You?re on a once-in-a-lifetime trip with family or friends. Or maybe just out traveling on your own. And you?ve finally got the lens that your memories deserve. It?s Tamron?s new wide to tele-photo zoom for both digital and film cameras. After all, Tamron is the pioneer in lightweight, compact, high-power zoom lenses that are as easy and fun as being on vacation. When mounted on a 35mm film camera, this lens captures all the scenery with its 28mm wide angle. Or put it on a digital SLR, and its 310mm equivalent* telephoto zoom allows you to take great shots of wild animals without getting too close, and delivers impressive candid portraits effortlessly. At last, a lens that has what it takes to capture what you see. * When converted to 35mm film format.
Optical design meets digital camera performance characteristicsTamron?s "Internal Surface Coatings"* and new multiple-layer coating technology on ordinary elements reduce ghosting and flare that happens due to reflections that can occur when light enters the lens as well as reflections caused by the imager itself. The strictest quality control standards were also applied to increase resolu-tion performance and prevent flare due to aberrations, resulting in a high-power zoom lens ideal for photography with digital SLR cameras. This is one lens you can use with confidence.* Multi-layer coatings on cemented surfaces of plural elements
