Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III Overview

By B&H Photo's

The dynamic Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD for Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras is a compact and versatile super telephoto zoom lens well suited to capture a wide array of subjects ranging from landscapes and birds to sports and wildlife photography. This lens is optimized for full-frame and can also be used on APS-C cameras with an equivalent focal length range of 225-750mm.

The optical construction features 25 elements in 16 groups and utilizes special lens elements and hybrid aspherical lens elements to control chromatic aberrations. Each element features a BBAR-G2 coating to reduce flare and ghosting for high contrast and color accuracy. The VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism delivers extreme high-speed and high-precision movement and ensures exceptionally responsive performance and is compatible with Sony Hybrid AF and Eye AF features in enabled cameras. The minimum object distance of 23.6" at 150mm end of the zoom range provides dynamic close-up imaging and add to the lens' remarkable overall usability.

The VC image stabilization facilitates shooting handheld at the 500mm ultra-telephoto position, and the Arca-type-compatible rotating tripod mount has integrated strap attachment loops for safety and support when shooting in the field. Designed and built with moisture-resistant construction for use in inclement conditions, plus a fluorine coating on the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smudging.

This lens is optimized for full-frame and can also be used on APS-C cameras with an equivalent focal length range of 225-750mm.
VC image stabilization facilitates shooting handheld at the 500mm ultra telephoto position, with three modes: standard, panning, and framing priority.
XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion), LD (Low Dispersion), and GM (Glass-Molded Aspherical) elements greatly reduce color fringing, chromatic aberrations, and image distortion throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Lens elements have a BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Antireflection) coating that suppresses internal reflections, flare, and ghosting to achieve greater contrast and color fidelity.
An Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount with incorporated strap attachment holes is included
Side switches have been redesigned for improved operability, and the Flex Zoom Lock mechanism holds the zoom position.
Physical controls include a linear/non-linear AF switch, an AF on/off switch, and a focus limiter switch.
The included lens hood is protected with a flexible, shock-absorbing front rim to prevent cracks and damage.
The zoom ring has a small 75° arc of rotation for swift adjustment to the desired focal length with minimal movement.
The VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor delivers impressively quiet, quick, and smooth focusing performance for both still and video applications.
Designed and built with moisture-resistant construction for use in inclement conditions, the front lens element has a fluorine coating to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
The rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Where and how on the Nikon Z does one activate the Vibration Compensation?
Asked by: John
The Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD Lens (Nikon Z) does not have a vibration reduction switch on the lens. That has to be set in the camera body. It will vary according to the camera body, but several have an i button in the back. When clicking that i button one of the options is to turn vibration reduction on and off. It has an icon of a hand in that option.

Asked by: Keith
Unfortunately, this lens is not compatible with a D500. This lens is specifically for Nikon Z Mirrorless cameras. However, Tamron does make a 150-600mm lens for your D500. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1277357-REG/tamron_sp_150_600mm_f_5_6_3_di.html

How does this compare to the Fujifilm 100-400mm?

How does this compare to the Fujifilm 100-400mm?
Asked by: Dakota
The front of the Fujifilm lens does NOT extend when focusing. It does extend when zooming, just like the Tamron lens. Tamron states the minimum focus distance only at the wide end of the zoom range, which usually means it does not focus very close at the telephoto end where it matters most.
