Tamron prides itself on delivering class-leading sharpness, brilliant color and striking contrast, discriminative APS-C and full-frame digital SLR photographers alike are quick to laud its performance.
The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.
Fast becoming a benchmark for this category, the SP 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di VC is an ideal choice for a two-zoom system complimenting a wide-to-moderate-tele zoom perfectly. Delivering class-leading sharpness, brilliant color and striking contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). , discriminative APS-C and full-frame digital SLR photographers alike are quick to laud its performance. The first lens to feature Tamron's USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) auto-focus drive mechanism and VC (Vibration Compensation)* image stabilization, these proprietary technologies are teamed with XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass in a 17 element, 12 group formula. APS-C-sensor photographers will enjoy extreme telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. subject magnification, with a resulting picture angle range approximating a 109-465mm lens on a 35mm film or full-frame DSLR. Sharpness, enhanced by Tamron's exclusive tri-axial VC image stabilization is amazing. Combating blur from camera shake, Tamron VC enables shooting handheld at as many as four shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time.
For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc.s slower than would be possible otherwise. Full-time manual focus makes fine tuning easy.
