The Ultimate All-In-One Lens For Savvy Travelers
People that pack a digital SLR when traveling on vacation, or on the go for the holidays comprise an elite group of discriminating shooters committed to ultimate performance, seamless capture and imaging excellence. Fortunately, there is now an extended range, all-in-one zoom lens for APS-C-format DSLRs that will deliver all these sterling virtues and much more—the Tamron 18-270mm Di II VC PZD. It comes in a supremely versatile, surprisingly compact, lightweight package that incorporates all the latest performance-enhancing technological advances. It provides an astonishing 15X, 28-419mm equivalent, wide-to-super-telephoto range without changing lenses, focuses down to 19.3 inches (0.26X magnification at 270mm) for breathtaking close-ups and delivers class-leading sharpness, exquisite detail and superb image quality. It includes Tamron’s exclusive PZD autofocus drive, and an enhanced Vibration Compensation (VC) image-stabilization system that provides up to a 4-stop anti-shake advantage when shooting handheld at long telephoto settings and at slow shutter speeds.
Advanced cutting-edge technology
Piezo Drive (PZD) is an exclusive Tamron innovation that uses high-frequency voltage to turn a ceramic piezoelectric element connected to a micro-motor to focus the lens more swiftly, silently and with greater precision than ever before. And because the new PZD mechanism is significantly smaller and lighter than a conventional AF drive, the lens is incredibly lightweight and compact for its vast range, measuring only 3.8 inches long, 2.9 inches in diameter and weighing in at less than a pound—15.87 ounces, to be exact.
Tamron’s latest Vibration Compensation (VC) system employs a new lightweight Moving Coil design that reduces the load on the drive system, enhancing responsiveness in counteracting camera shake while further reducing size and weight. Unlike traditional stabilization systems, it compensates for handheld camera shake in three planes, a big plus in achieving crisp images handheld at long-reach focal lengths and when shooting in low light.
Now you know why the Tamron 18-270mm Di II VC PZD is the top choice of so many travel professionals, destination and events photographers, active lifestyle shooters and discerning enthusiasts that demand the ultimate in portability, versatility and imaging performance. It’s the perfect all-in-one lens for traveling light and capturing the unexpected.
