Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical IF Macro Autofocus Lens
Key Features
  • For Nikon Cameras
  • Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto
  • With Built-In Motor
  • Vibration Compensation (VC) Mechanism
The Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical IF Macro Lens is now equipped with a Vibration Compensation (VC) mechanism. This lens is ultra-compact and light-weight, with a constant minimum focus distance of 1.6' (0.5 m) and a high maximum magnification of 1:3. The remarkable achievements are brought about through XR (extra refractive index) glass and efficient use of aspherical lenses. The ideal "all-in-one" zoom lens, for indoor and outdoor use.

The VC mechanism, developed by Tamron, features a triaxial configuration using three pairs of driving coils and slide balls around the compensator group of the lens' optical system. Since the compensator lenses are supported with rolling friction of the balls, the response performance is enhanced and the construction is simple, which results in the compactness of the lens. As a result, dimensional increases are confined to a mere 0.7" (17.8mm) in overall length and about 5mm in diameter.

Di (Digitally Integrated) design is the designation that Tamron uses for lenses that feature the improved optical design that meets the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras, as well as film cameras. When used with APS-C size (standard) digital Nikon SLR cameras, the lens provides an angle of view equivalent to approximately 42-450mm, covering the standard to ultra telephoto range with no sacrifice of quality or aperture range.

Note:
Current version has AF that is supported by D40 and D60 cameras.
The lens incorporates a highly accurate gyro sensor for detecting hand-shake, which, combined with a 32-bit RISC CPU, offers comfortable anti-vibration effects.
The optical system uses a number of lens elements made from special optical glass materials including XR (high refraction index) glass elements, GM (glass-molded) elements, hybrid aspherical elements, LD (low dispersion) glass elements to compensate for on-axis and lateral chromatic aberrations and AD (anomalous dispersion) glass element.
This lens features Internal Surface Coatings (i.e., multiple-layer coatings on cemented surfaces of plural elements) and new multiple-layer coating technology on ordinary elements in order to minimize reflections that occur when light enters through the front element and to reduce image degrading effects caused by the imagers themselves.
Tamron's Vibration Compensation provides blur-stopping power with no annoying motion delay in your viewfinder.
The Zoom Lock prevents unwanted barrel movement when carrying the lens/camera combination.

question

Will this lens work with my Canon 5D Mark II ?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Tamron Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD (B&H # TA2830035N Mfr # AF020NII-700) is the version for Nikon, and would be compatible with Nikon DSLRs. For the Canon 5D II you would need the Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical IF Macro Lens for Canon (B&H # TA2830035C ? Mfr # AF020C-700).

question

Will the AF function work on the Nikon D5000? Also I currently have the Sigma 70-300 but have to switch lenes to work in the 35-55 range. Does this lens effectively eliminate the need to switch lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical IF Macro Autofocus Lens does have a built-in autofocus motor and would be fully compatible with all current Nikon DSLR cameras, including the Nikon D5000 DSLR Camera, and would autofocus when used on the camera body. As the lens has a zoom range from 28-300mm in one lens, you would not have to switch lenses to reach the 35-55mm zoom range.
