Tamron USA has announced two new image stabilized lenses, both available in the coming months here at Cameta Camera.
First, a new version of Tamron’s workhorse 70-200mm f/2.8 has been announced. The full-frame SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (A025) offers improved performance in virtually every area over the existing A009 lens. An all-new optical design improves resolution and reduces aberrations across the entire zoom range, and the minimum focus distance has been reduced to just 0.95m. The VC image stabilization system has been upgraded to achieve 5 stops of compensation, and it offers 3 different VC modes for specific situations. In addition, the news lens is moisture-proof and dust-resistant, with a fluorine coating on the front lens surface, for use in harsh conditions.

Next, the new APS-C size 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD (B023) features a variety of improvements over the existing B001 10-24mm lens. Overall optical performance has been upgraded, with better resolution and less distortion throughout the zoom range. Brand new features for this lens include an HLD (High/Low Torque Modulated Drive) motor for exceptional autofocus performance, Tamron’s VC stabilization system (up to 4 stops of compensation), and moisture-resistant construction with a fluorine coating on the front element. Compact, light and affordable, this wide-angle zoom will be a staple in many shooters’ camera bags.
