Tamron 150-600mm: A must have lens for wildlife photography

In December, Tamron USA announced the launch of an exciting new super telephoto lens: the 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD for digital SLR cameras. Some of the features of this lens include:

  • Cutting edge e-BAND coating (extended bandwith and angular-dependency) to significantly reduce unwanted light reflections that cause flare and ghosting
  • Vibration Compensation (VC) image stabilization
  • USD Ultrasonic Drive for fast, accurate autofocus
  • 9 blade aperture ring for gorgeous background blur effects
  • Employs 20 elements in 13 groups: delivers a superior balance of resolution and contrast for sharp, clear images
  • Contains three LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements (two in the first group, one in the third) in the front group for enhanced optical correction effectiveness, enabling the lens to thoroughly compensate for on-axis aberrations at the telephoto end
  • Upgraded cosmetic design with tungsten silver brand ring and new rubber grips for the focus and zoom

Englewood Camera is expecting shipments of this lens in Canon mount soon, and we hope to see Nikon mount lenses in April! Please call us or stop by the store to add your name to our pre-order list. The Tamron 150-600mm will retail for $1069.99.
