In the pursuit to achieve the most outstanding image resolution in the 70-300mm class, Tamron’s  lens - the SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD - utilizes an advanced optical design that features a LD ( Low Dispersion) and an XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) lens element made from specialized materials that prevent chromatic aberration. As a result, the SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD boasts sharper contrast and greater descriptive performance than all others in its class.

In addition, it is the first Tamron lens to include a USD ( Ultrasonic Silent Drive), Tamron’s very own ultrasonic auto-focus drive mechanism. This USD mechanism delivers fast focusing, making it a perfect telephoto zoom choice for photographing sports, racing, or other fast-moving subjects. The lens also boasts Tamron’s proprietary VC ( Vibration Compensation) image stabilization to assist in hand-held photography, not only at long focal length ranges where blurring is common, but also under low-lit conditions, dramatically enhancing photographic freedom.

This combination of best in class image resolution, Ultrasonic Silent Drive and Vibration Compensation is a new achievement of Tamron technology, culminating in the production of a premium 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens.

Additional product features

LD (Low Dispersion ): Lens element for greater image sharpness and the correction of chromatic aberration.

XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) Glass: A special glass with an extremely low colour dispersion index for the greatest level of sharpness and compensation of chromatic aberration.

Internal-Focusing (IF)-System: The extension length of the lens does not change during focussing and the close focussing distance is significantly reduced across the entire focusing range.
