Sharp, crisp, clear photos with vibrant colors. That is what you can expect from the Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens for APS-C sized digital SLR cameras. From ease of use to the quality it delivers, you'll be impressed and making incredible photos in no time. This extraordinary 18.8X zoom comes with Vibration Compensation and high-speed Piezo Drive autofocusing, making it a lens you can rely on for crisp, detailed wide-angle to long-telephoto shots.

 

A leader in zoom lenses, Tamron is following up the 18-270mm All-In-One zoom lens with a superior response to what consumers are demanding. The 16-300MM F/3.5-6.3 DI II VC PZD MACRO boasts expanded focal lengths both at the wide-angle end and the telephoto end in this All-In-One zoom lens. It provides an impressive focal length range extending from 16mm true wide-angle to 300mm super-telephoto.

 

Tamron 16-300 lens contest

World’s first zoom ratio of approximately 18.8X *

Responding to requests from consumers who wanted to be able to photograph subjects with a wider viewing angle than is possible with conventional high-power zoom lenses, Tamron developed a unique lens that will deliver unprecedented framing flexibility by easily adjusting the angle of view using the convenient zoom ring.

 

Reliable Image Quality

The lens construction features 16 elements in 12 groups. This includes three Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, one Hybrid Aspherical element, two LD (Low Dispersion) elements, one XR (Extra Refractive index) glass element, and one element of UXR (Ultra-Extra Refractive Index) glass, which has a greater refractive index than XR.  The full use of specialized glass elements in the design contributes to thorough compensation of optical aberrations. In addition, the use of the latest coating technology for suppressing reflections on lens element surfaces minimizes unwanted flare and ghosting and assures sharp, crisp, high-contrast images.

 

Ultra-Compact Design

The latest optical technology has been used to provide an expanded zoom range at both the wide-angle and telephoto ends, without necessitating the use of an oversized lens body. By employing UXR glass (which helps to reduce the size of the front lens diameter), an optimized layout of the Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, and adopting a 5-lens-group zoom system approach to provide enhanced design flexibility, the lens embodies the fusion of state-of-the-art optical design, sophisticated mechanical design, and high-precision lens manufacturing technology, thereby attaining a compact size, an unprecedented zoom range, and superior image quality.

 

Macro Photography

The lens provides a minimum focus distance of 15.3 inches over the entire zoom range, with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9. This makes it possible to get right up close to the subject of the photo to enjoy easy, stress-free macro photography.

 

Faster, Quieter Autofocus

The PZD (Piezo Drive) advanced standing-wave ultrasonic motor system delivers faster, quieter, more precise AF action when the autofocus is engaged. There is enhanced support for contrast-detection AF capabilities, and focusing when in live-view mode has been made smoother. The lens also features full-time manual focus, a function that was not provided on the B008, making manual focusing more convenient.

 

Sharper images with VC (Vibration Compensation)

Tamron’s acclaimed VC mechanism is incorporated into the lens. VC reduces image blur caused by camera shake to deliver significantly sharper images even when shooting handheld at long telephoto settings.
