Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon - OPEN BOX

Not Available.
Condition: Open Box Closeout
Cutting-edge eBAND Coating and three LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements deliver superior imaging performance, while the latest built-in VC (Vibration Compensation) system broadens users' horizons in achieving sharper handheld photographs.

The Tamron SP 150-600MM F/5-6.3 DI VC USD (MODEL A011) Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens features VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization, speedy, precise USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) , state-of-the-art eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating, which significantly reduces the unwanted light reflections that cause flare and ghosting, and a sophisticated and stylish new external finish.

Its 4x ultra-telephoto zoom capabilities, with a focal length range from 150mm to 600mm, enhance the creative potential of telephoto photography, a captivating feature for all photographers, particularly nature, wildlife, and sports shooters.

4x ultra-telephoto zoom lens with a focal length range of 150mm to 600mm
The focal length range of this lens was extended by 50mm on the wide-angle side and 100mm on the telephoto side compared to the existing model A08, making it possible to take even more striking photographs of birds, wildlife, sports, and other distant subjects. Mounted on APS-C DSLR cameras, it has a stunning near1000mm telephoto equivalent focal length range of 233mm to 930mm.

World class image quality
Employing 20 elements in 13 groups and boasting an advanced optical design, the lens delivers a superior balance of resolution and contrast for sharp, clear images. The front group contains three LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements (two in the first group, one in the third) for enhanced optical correction effectiveness, enabling the lens to thoroughly compensate for on-axis aberrations at the telephoto end. The lens also adopts eBAND Coating, developed from state-of-the-art coating technologies, and conventional BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating to greatly suppress ghosting and flare even when shooting under adverse lighting conditions.

Achieves a 600mm focal length in a compact easy-to-handle package
Ingenious optical design features minimize the movement of lens groups within the lens when zooming. This reduces the amount of barrel extension needed to cover the complete focusing range, making the entire lens more compact.

Beautiful background blur effects
Adopting a 9 blade circular diaphragm enables users to create beautiful background blur effects (Bokeh), which provide even greater potential for creative expression. This circular diaphragm retains a nearly circular shape even at two stops down from its maximum aperture.

VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism creates greater opportunities for sharper handheld photography
Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization system uses a three-coil system, delivering significantly sharper images and creating greater opportunities for handheld ultra-telephoto photography.

Comfortable autofocus
Tamron's SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD features a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ultrasonic motor drive for swift and accurate AF response, it delivers high torque, very fast response times, and very low noise. The full-time manual focus mechanism allows users to make fine manual focus adjustments at any time even when AF is engaged.

Elegant, high-class external finish
Tamron has upgraded the cosmetic design and finish of this lens to create a more sophisticated, high-end look in keeping with the demands of discerning full-frame DSLR users. Employing a sophisticated linear pattern rubber grip on the zoom and focus rings and an attractive and stylish tungsten silver brand ring, this newly designed model accentuates its visceral presence with understated elegance and class.

Easy-to-use tripod mount
The tripod mount has been completely redesigned to provide superior stability, durability, ease of use, and portability.

Comes with "SILKYPIX Developer Studio for Tamron" RAW image development processing software for Tamron's SP lenses
The SILKYPIX Developer Studio software can develop high-quality images from RAW data, incorporating adjustments that can express the personal style and taste of the photographer. These include white balance, color, sharpness, and the tonal curves recorded by digital cameras. The SILKYPIX Developer Studio for Tamron provides a range of functions, in addition to the basic adjustment capabilities, such as correcting aberrations (chromatic aberrations of magnification, distortion, peripheral light fall-off), based on the optical data. Used in tandem with Tamron's SP series lenses - renowned for their high-depiction capability - this advanced technology efficiently produces images that meet photographers' most exacting demands.

1 The eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating is a new nanotechnology-based coating technique developed by Tamron to reduce unwanted reflection.
2 VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron's proprietary image stabilization mechanism.
3 USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) is Tamron's proprietary ring-type ultrasonic motor.
4 Length and weight are based on figures for the Nikon-mount lens.
5 Length is the distance between the front tip of the lens and the mount face.
6 This circular diaphragm retains a nearly circular shape even when taken at two stops down from its maximum aperture.
7 The Sony mount does not include VC, since Sony digital SLR bodies include built-in image

Pros: Sharpness is pretty impressive, especially for such a long zoom. Vignette is kept pretty low. Lateral chromatic aberration is kept reasonably under control. For the money its a good deal.
Cons: you'll get the very best results shooting at F8-F11, but that probably won't be very practical for such a long lens. heavy lens not something you want to carry around all day.

5 out of 5 stars   Tamron 150-600 Lens
By Daren (Hildebran, NC) April 26, 2015
Review submitted for Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD Zoom Lens for Nikon (AFA011N700) (TMAFA011N700)
Verified Purchaser

Verified Reviewer
Pros: It is pretty sharp all the way to 600mm. The vibration compensation is better than any Nikon lens I own. I took a shot at 600mm, 1/125 sec hand held of a moving aircraft and it was perfectly sharp. Build quality is pretty good for the price. The photo keeper rate was about 90% at an air show compared to about 70% that I would get with my Nikon 28-300VR or Nikon 80-200 f/2.8.
Cons: It is a very large and heavy lens, takes some getting used to. You will probably need a new larger bag if you plan to carry this lens with other lens. It did not fit in my Tamrac Pro-5 bag and barely fit my Canon backpack. Problem solved with a new Tamrac Pro-12 bag.
Other Comments: For the money there is no other lens that comes close in this zoom range. The only alternative is to get the Sigma Contemporary which is maybe equal but I would trust Tamron image quality over it. The Sigma Sport 150-600 would be a step up but at twice the cost. A Nikon prime 600mm is 10 times the cost. I bought this lens solely for air shows and out of all the glass I have used in the past, Nikon and Tokina this does a much better job. My Nikon 80-200 f/2.8 is sharper but the Tamrom makes up for it in range and vibration compensation so in the end I come home with a lot more usable photos.

Pros: Long reach for Nature and Birding. Quite manageable and possible hand held (build your muscle). Best up to 400mm, acceptable IQ at 600mm. If you need 600mm, get it without breaking the bank. Image stabilization really works. Fast focus without hesitation. Sharp even at fully open aperture. 1/10 of the price of similar brand name lens.
Cons: Plastic lens construction, so handle carefully. 95mm filter size. Not so fast lens, not F/4. No pouch or case included. Back ordered almost everywhere, even a year after the initial release.
Other Comments: Great with daylight exposure. Image quality at 600 is not as good as $9K brand name lens. Extending zoom lens barrel. Perfectly smooth manual focus Works perfectly with Nokon autofocus and autoexposure.

4 out of 5 stars   Tamron vs Canon 100-400
(Spokane WA) December 19, 2014
Review submitted for Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD Zoom Lens for Canon (AFA011C700) (TMAFA011C700)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Inexpensive for what you get. Lens tests seem to be accurate--I ran some tests at f6..3,8 and 16 vs the Canon 100-400 and sharpness seemed equal except at 300..--Canon was slightly better.
Cons: TBA--will go on a shoot for eagles next week--stay tuned. Friend had one and it never produced sharp images...quality control? 4 stars on limited testing
Other Comments: More info to come. Tests were conducted at 50yds using a For Sale sign with multiple sized letters. Then images were examine at 100% magnification looks good so far.
