Offering a wide angle of view for full frame cameras, the Sony A mount Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di USD Lens is a fast wide-angle zoom lens . The f/2.8 maximum aperture performs well in low-light situations, and provides a shallow depth of field for selective focus. XGM and LD glass elements reduce chromatic aberrations and help ensure sharp and clear imagery. eBAND and BBAR coatings render uniform colors and reduce ghosting and flare, while a fluorine coating on the front element helps repel water or contaminants.

A USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) autofocus motor provides quick and precise focusing performance, with high torque, low response times, and quiet operation to benefit both still and video applications. Additionally, a full-time manual focus mechanism enables manual fine-tuning of focus at any point, even when the AF system is engaged.

Image Quality

Comprised of 18 elements in 13 groups, including an XGM (eXpanded Glass Molded Aspherical) element placed at the front group and several LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements in the system, aberrations such as geometrical distortion and lateral color are efficiently compensated for, enabling the zoom lens to deliver quality imagery throughout the entire range from corner to corner.

BBAR and eBAND Coatings

BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coating renders uniformity in transmissivity across the critical bandwidths. Coupled with the eBAND coating, ghosting and flare typically observed on ultra wide-angle lenses are efficiently eliminated, resulting in sharper and clearer images.

Ultrasonic Motor

USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) Motor is the power for a fast and quiet autofocus drive that works in harmony with the continuous manual focus mechanism.

XGM and LD Glass Elements

An eXpanded Glass Molded Aspherical element and Low Dispersion elements in the front group minimize chromatic aberrations and help ensure clear and sharp imagery.

Lens Hood

A built-in lens hood helps block out unwanted light, preventing lens flare, as well as protecting the lens's front element.

Diaphragm

A rounded 9-blade diaphragm produces an aesthetic out-of-focus quality that is especially beneficial when working with selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.

I am aware Tarmon can do a free firmware update for this to work with FTZ+Nikon Z6/Z7, but, some are saying it worked fine as-is when they used it on a FTZ adapter. Can anyone confirm?
Asked by: Allan
Out of the box, it may work fine but your best bet is to update it regardless. Anytime there is new firmware updates, it is good practice to update it.

can I use Tamron sp 15+30 lens with A73 with sigma mc 11?
Asked by: Richard
The MC-11 only allows for either Sigma lenses with a Canon EF mount or Sigma lenses with an SA mount to fit the Sony E mount cameras. Being that this lens is a Sony A mount, a more suitable adapter is the Sony A-Mount to E-Mount Lens Adapter (Black), B&H# SOLAEA3, which mounts A mount lenses to a Sony E mount body. https://bhpho.to/2Hb1Lsr

Will Tamron lens sold by B&H warranted internationally?
Asked by: Kin Pun
I have no idea. I do know that if you purchase in the U.S. that will repair it in the U.S. Trade contracts, tax codes, company policies all seem to have a say in how the product warranties are handled. To be sure I would contact a Tamron rep through B&H (they may know exactly what to do-thay have been exceptional to me in the past).
