Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro- Nikon Mount

Be the first to review this product

The world's first 18.8x zoom, with PZD (Piezo Drive) autofocus and VC image stabilisation.


Spanning an astonishing range of focal lengths from true wide-angle 16mm to 300mm telephoto (35mm film equivalent: 24.8-465mm), at its widest-angle setting this lens can shoot sweeping panoramic landscapes and intimate interiors, and as a telephoto it can capture powerful close-ups of distant subjects. This unprecedented flexibility in framing is available with a quick turn of the zoom ring.

Product Description

Details

Expand your options with high-power zooming from 16mm wide-angle

Spanning an astonishing range of focal lengths from true wide-angle 16mm to 300mm telephoto (35mm film equivalent: 24.8-465mm), at its widest-angle setting this lens can shoot sweeping panoramic landscapes and intimate interiors, and as a telephoto it can capture powerful close-ups of distant subjects. This unprecedented flexibility in framing is available with a quick turn of the zoom ring.

Leading-edge optics with ultrasonic focus and image stabilisation – plus 1:2.9 macro

The lens combines our latest advances in optical design – including the deployment of aspherical elements and newly developed glass – with multiple layers of coating to produce clear, sharp images while maintaining compact dimensions. And like all new Tamron lenses, ultrasonic focus and Vibration Compensation provide fast, quiet AF response and sharp images in lower light. Macro focusing down to 1:2.9 is also provided.

Improvements upon the 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Model B008) include:

  • Greater focal length range – another 32mm
  • Enhanced support for contrast-detection AF capabilities
  • Smoother focusing in live-view mode
  • Full-time manual focus
  • Greater maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9

VC (Vibration Compensation) makes friends of low light and telephoto1

VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron's proprietary image stabilisation system. It employs three driving coils that electromagnetically activate a shake-compensating VC lens group. The VC lens elements are held in place only by three ceramic ball bearings, giving smooth movement with little friction. Even when shooting long-range or under low light, the viewfinder image remains stable and the tracking response is excellent.

Super-smooth and accurate with PZD (Piezo Drive)

Pioneered in the Model B008, the PZD (Piezo Drive) piezoelectric drive is Tamron's internal standing wave ultrasonic internal motor system. Autofocusing is noticeably faster and quieter. Capture crisp images spontaneously, even in noise-sensitive situations. There is enhanced support for contrast-detection AF capabilities, and focusing when in live-view mode is smoother.

Full-time manual override

Make fine focus adjustments at any time without having to switch out of autofocus mode.

Moisture-resistant construction

Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.

Minimum focus distance of 39cm over the zoom range, with macro capability to 1:2.9

Designed exclusively for APS-C sized digital SLR cameras, this all-in-one zoom has a minimum focal distance of 0.39m (15.3 in.) through the entire zoom range. Macro capability down to 1:2.9 allows you to enjoy high-quality macro photography with astonishing convenience.

High image quality in a compact, lightweight zoom

This cutting-edge design employs Tamron's advanced optical and mechanical design technology. There are 16 elements in 12 groups including three Moulded-Glass Aspherical elements, two LD (Low Dispersion) elements and UXR (Ultra-eXtra Refractive Index) glass. Together, they correct optical aberrations, while state-of-the-art multilayer coating significantly minimises ghosting and flare to deliver images of exceptional clarity. The entire package is kept incredibly compact through the use of advanced mechanical design engineering.

Elegant new design

The rubber grips on the zoom and focus rings have a rectilinear grid pattern that adds sophistication to the design, while the signature Tamron brand ring in tungsten silver enhances its luxurious finish.

  1. The Sony mount is not equipped with the VC image stabilisation mechanism, as the body of Sony's digital SLR cameras has a built-in image stabilisation function. Consequently, the lens with a Sony mount is referred to as the 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II PZD and does not include the VC description.
  2. PZD (Piezo Drive) is a standing wave ultrasonic motor system developed by Tamron. The motor is faster and quieter than DC motors when the AF drive is operated, and compared with arc-type ultrasonic motors, it has an actuator that facilitates lens design and reduced size.
