Excellent AF performance meets enhanced VC
Precise AF tracking and VC (Vibration Compensation) are essential for ultra-telephoto lens performance. Thatʼs where Tamronʼs Dual MPU high-speed control system comes in. It features an MPU (micro-processing unit) with a built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for superior signal processing, plus a separate MPU dedicated exclusively to vibration compensation. With enhanced AF response speed and VC, you can accurately shoot fast-moving subjects with stability and ease—even in low-light.
Precise, responsive AF performance
A built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) on the MPU delivers highspeed processing of digital signals, while ensuring excellent AF responsiveness. This improvement allows you to track subjects moving at high speeds, even more accurately. The AF drive system also uses a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) motor for outstanding performance and fast, precise focusing.
Keep it steady with enhanced VC
Weʼve fine-tuned our original VC (Vibration Compensation) system with an enhanced control algorithm and an independent MPU dedicated to VC. Together, they meet a CIPA image stabilization performance level of 4 stops. While most ultra-telephoto lenses are prone to camera shake, delivers excellent stability for reliable, stress-free handheld shooting.
Optional tripod mount expands your shooting style
Using a tripod is as easy as shooting handheld. A thoughtfully designed grip makes it easy to handle. Plus Arca-Swiss release compatibility and an easily detachable tripod mount improve speed and flexibility. An optional tripod lets you choose the most suitable way to shoot the subject and help to express your creativity.
Better bokeh, Greater stability
