Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro Lens BIM (Nikon AF)
Lightweight, Compact 15x Zoom with Vibration Compensation and Low Light Telephoto Capabilities.
The acclaimed Tamron 18-270mm VC ultra zoom for APS-C format DSLRs has reached an astonishing new level of compactness, performance, and speed with the addition of PZD (Piezo Drive), an innovative ultrasonic autofocus motor based on an advanced piezoelectric design. The result is a lens that's considerably lighter, and noticeably shorter and slimmer than any previous lens in its class, and provides faster, quieter auto-focusing.
Signature features that have made this amazingly versatile lens the world standard in its class have been retained. They include a 28-419mm equivalent (15X) zoom range, an improved, lightweight, compact Vibration Compensation (VC) system, macro focusing to 0.49m (19.3 inches) throughout, and, of course, superlative imaging performance.
15x Zoom Ratio
In addition, this lens is packed with the best Tamron technologies, which have enabled a significant reduction in body size. The lens construction comprises 13 groups and 16 elements, which is two elements fewer than the previous model, while use of the hybrid aspherical lens with low dispersion glass has helped achieve a compact design and improved optical performance. In addition, the PZD autofocus drive and the VC mechanism were developed as downsizing technologies exclusive to Tamron. This has resulted in a compact lens that is 100 grams lighter and 24% smaller in volume compared with the previous model.
