Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD Lens for Nikon Z

The Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD Lens defies its 500mm-class telephoto range with a remarkably compact size, tailored for full-frame Nikon mirrorless cameras. Its acclaimed VC mechanism provides excellent image stabilisation, allowing handheld filming in low-light conditions.

This lens delivers high image quality across its entire zoom range, breaking free from the need for tripods in the ultra-telephoto realm. It features a VXD autofocus system and Tamron's VC for precise and sharp images. With a 150mm minimum object distance, it's perfect for striking close-ups. The optical design, consisting of 25 elements in 16 groups, effectively controls aberrations, providing outstanding quality.

  • Full-Frame | f/5-6.7 to f/22-32
  • Compact Ultra Telephoto Zoom
  • VXD eXtreme-Torque Drive Linear AF Motor
  • VC Image Stabilisation with 3 Modes
  • Low Dispersion and Aspherical Elements
  • BBAR-G2 and Fluorine Coatings
  • Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm

Experience portability, high-speed autofocus and superb sharpness.

The 150-500mm f/5-6.7 lens has a focal length of 500mm on the telephoto end, yet it provides remarkably compact size and extremely high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. It lets users enjoy spontaneous shooting in the ultra-tele realm where conventional wisdom once dictated a tripod. The ultra-telephoto zoom is equipped with the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) precise and high-speed linear motor autofocus mechanism and Tamron’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism. At the 150mm end, this versatile lens offers an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.6m for powerful and dramatic close-ups.

Product Features

A compact full-frame 500mm lens that defies old-fashioned thinking

The 150-500mm f/5-6.7 is just 212.3mm long with a maximum diameter of 93mm, an astoundingly compact size for a 500mm-class ultra-telephoto zoom for full-frame mirrorless cameras. Even when extended to the 500mm telephoto end, the lens is still remarkably compact at only about 287.3mm.

* For APS-C mirrorless format: approximately 225-750mm equivalent zoom range.


Remarkable image quality

The optical construction features 25 elements in 16 groups. The generous and effective use of special lens elements including one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion), five LD (Low Dispersion), and two Hybrid Aspherical lens elements thoroughly controls aberrations, including axial chromatic aberrations, so users can enjoy exceptionally high resolving power across the entire image from edge-to-edge. 

VXD AF motor provides high speed, high precision, and excellent quietness

The 150-500mm f/5-6.7 features VXD linear motor autofocus mechanism. VXD delivers high-speed and high-precision movement and ensures responsive performance. Even when shooting at 500mm, the lens provides fast and accurate focusing from near to far. Also, the high-performance focus tracking allows successful capture of fast-moving subjects. Superbly quiet, the linear motor also reduces drive noise and vibrations produced during focusing (as compared to a conventional drive system), making it ideal for shooting both still photos and video in low-noise environments.

Tamron’s highly acclaimed VC provides excellent image stabilisation

This compact 150-500mm f/5-6.7 is equipped with TAMRON’s VC mechanism to deliver excellent image stabilisation performance, thereby efficiently reducing image blur caused by camera shake. This functionality supports handheld shooting of scenes in low light, such as evening and indoor, without the use of a tripod. 

Telephoto-macro feature unlocks exciting close-range shooting experiences

The 150-500mm f/5-6.7 offers excellent close-up shooting capabilities for an ultra-telephoto lens. The MOD is 0.6m at the 150mm end and 1.8m at the 500mm telephoto end. The maximum magnification ratio at 150mm is extremely high at 1:3.1. Users can shoot powerful telephoto-macro images of subjects while maintaining a reasonable shooting distance.
