- For Nikon Cameras
- Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto
- With Built-In Motor
- Vibration Compensation (VC) Mechanism
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.
