Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6-40.0 G2 Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon

Following up on the wildly successful Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD (model A011), the second generation Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6-40.0 G2 (model A022) lens sets the bar high in ultra-telephoto zoom performance. Upgraded features including a revamped optical design, advanced lens coatings, faster AF speed, and improved image stabilization all ensure superior handheld shooting image results.

LD (Low Dispersion)

Say good riddance to axial and transverse chromatic aberrations forever! The three LD (low dispersion) lens elements of this zoomer's refreshed optical structure eliminates these common photography blunders.

Moreover, the Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6-40.0 G2 lens features Tamron's own eBand (Extended Bandwidth and Angular-Dependency) coating to put a stop to ghosting and flare--even when capturing a backlit photo.

Treated with this nano-structure layer on top of regular anti-reflection coatings, the lens element transmits more light and offers enhanced anti-reflective performance, angulated incident rays in particular. 

VC (Vibration Compensation)

On the Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6-40.0 G2 (model A022), Vibration Compensation (VC) is 4.5 stops and has three different modes. The standard VC mode 1 strikes a balance between the stability of the viewfinder image and the stabilization effects, VC mode 2 is for panning, and VC mode 3 prioritizes the stabilization of captured images, forgoing the stabilization of the viewfinder image.

USD (Ultrasonic Silent Motor)

At the heart of the Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6-40.0 G2 lens' outstanding responsiveness and control is an Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) motor. Over its predecessor, this ultra-zoom lens is optimized with faster AF speed--the accuracy you need especially when you're capturing fast movement objects such as car races or sports action.

You won't have to switch modes when you need to fine tune focusing adjustments manually since the full-time manual focus override feature lets you adjust accordingly when shooting. 

Flex Zoom Lock 

This new mechanism introduced on this second generation telephoto zoom lens is designed to rapidly lock or unlocks the zoom. This handy function works at any position with the simple slide of the lens' zoom ring.

Capture images from any angle and travel with the confidence that the zoom won't accidently extend in the middle of shooting or transporting. 

Dust, Fingerprint & Moisture-Resistant Construction 

For advanced protection from the dirt, dust, moisture, and fingerprints, a water and oil repellant fluorine compound coating tops the front surface of the lens element. The Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD f/5.6-40.0 G2's construction incorporates leak-proof seals throughout the lens barrel.

This essentially provides optimal equipment protection when you're shooting outdoors in harsh weather conditions.
