Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD Lens for Sony E

The Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD is a versatile super-telephoto lens for Sony E full-frame cameras. The focal length range lends itself well to shooting landscapes to sports and wildlife. 

This telephoto lens enables users to enjoy casual shooting with steady performance and high image quality in the ultra-telephoto realm where conventional wisdom once dictated a tripod.

To support handheld shooting in the ultra-telephoto range, the new zoom is equipped with VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive), a linear motor focus mechanism that delivers excellent quietness and agile performance, and Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism for high-level image stabilisation.

At the 150mm end, the lens offers a MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.6m for powerful and dramatic close-ups.

    • 225-750mm Equivalent on APS-C Cameras
    • Aperture Range: f/5-6.7 to f/22-32
    • Low Dispersion and Aspherical Elements
    • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format

    The Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD is a versatile super-telephoto lens for Sony E full-frame cameras. The focal length range lends itself well to shooting landscapes to sports and wildlife.The 150-500mm f/5-6.7 is Tamron's first ultra-telephoto zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras that reaches the 500mm focal length. Even when extended to the 500mm telephoto end, the lens is still compact enough for comfortable handheld shooting. This lens enables users to enjoy casual shooting with steady performance and high image quality in the ultra-telephoto realm where conventional wisdom once dictated a tripod. To support handheld shooting in the ultra-telephoto range, the new zoom is equipped with VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive), a linear motor focus mechanism that delivers excellent quietness and agile performance, and Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism for high-level image stabilisation. At the 150mm end, the lens offers a MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.6m for powerful and dramatic close-ups.

    A hand-holdable full-frame 500mm lens that defies conventional wisdom

    The 150-500mm f/5-6.7 is just 209.6mm long with a maximum diameter of 93mm, an astoundingly compact size for a 500 mm-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 283mm. The lens zooms from 150mm to 500mm by rotating the zoom ring through an arc of just 75° — less than one-quarter of a turn. This feature enables rapid adjustment to the desired angle of view with minimal movement, avoiding missed opportunities and facilitating intuitive composition. Tamron's renowned VC mechanism also significantly improves handheld performance by counteracting camera shake. * For APS-C mirrorless format: approximately 225-750mm equivalent zoom range. 

    Amazing high image quality despite its compact size

    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 control aberrations including axial chromatic aberrations. This 150-500mm f/5-6.7 ultra-telephoto zoom lens is designed and constructed with a strong emphasis on compact size and usability without compromising image quality, so users can enjoy exceptionally high resolving power across the entire image.

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

    The 150-500mm f/5-6.7 features the same highly acclaimed VXD linear motor focus mechanism that was first introduced in the 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD (Model A056). VXD delivers extreme high-speed and high-precision movement and ensures exceedingly responsive performance. Even when shooting at the ultra-telephoto end with a focal length of 500mm, the 150-500mm f/5-6.7 provides fast, comfortable and accurate focusing at all shooting distances, from near to far. Focus tracking has been vastly improved to facilitate capturing fast-moving subjects, for example, sporting events, birds and aviation photography. This ensures that those dramatic, action-packed moments are never missed, whether shooting still photos or video. Additionally, 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 acclaimed Vibration Compensation delivers an excellent image stabilisation

    The slim, compact 150-500mm f/5-6.7 is equipped with a Tamron VC mechanism. The lens features a VC mode selection switch with three settings (Mode 1: Standard, Mode 2: Exclusively for Panning, and Mode 3: Framing Priority) so the ideal VC mode can be invoked to match shooting conditions. This functionality delivers excellent image stabilisation performance, enabling efficient reduction of image blurring caused by camera shake.

    Exciting telephoto macro focuses as close as 0.6m

    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 exceptionally high at 1:3.1. Users can shoot powerful telephoto-macro images of subjects including flowers and insects while maintaining a reasonable shooting distance — closer than you can get with conventional ultra-telephoto zoom lenses.
