Description

The intricate technical specifications underlying this lens.

Introducing the Tamron AF 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III-A VC VXD Lens - Fuji X-Mount, an ultra-telephoto zoom lens boasting an impressive 500mm focal length. This lens retains its compactness even when fully extended to the 500mm telephoto end, ensuring comfortable handheld shooting. It opens up opportunities for capturing images with stability and top-notch quality in the ultra-telephoto domain, a field once dominated by the need for tripods. The lens is equipped with the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive), a linear motor focus mechanism that excels in providing quiet and agile performance, combined with TAMRON's exclusive VC technology, allowing for handheld shooting even at extreme telephoto lengths.

Defying conventional norms, a handheld 500mm lens.

Measuring a mere 209.6mm (8.3 in) in length and with a maximum diameter of 93mm, the 150-500mm F5-6.7 showcases an astonishingly compact design for an ultra-telephoto zoom of its class. Even at its full 500mm telephoto extension, the lens maintains its compactness, measuring just 283mm (11.1 in). Zooming from 150mm to 500mm is achieved with a minimal 75° rotation of the zoom ring—less than a quarter turn—allowing swift adjustments to the desired field of view with minimal movement. This ensures quick composition adjustments, minimizing missed opportunities, while TAMRON's renowned VC system effectively counters camera shake, enhancing handheld performance.

Exceptional image quality within its compact form.

Constructed with 25 elements in 16 groups, the optical setup includes special lens elements such as one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion), five LD (Low Dispersion), and two Hybrid Aspherical elements that effectively control various aberrations, including axial chromatic aberrations. Balancing compact size and usability without sacrificing image quality, this 150-500mm F5-6.7 ultra-telephoto zoom lens offers remarkable resolving power across the entire image area.

VXD AF motor: Speed, precision, and silence.

The 150-500mm F5-6.7 incorporates the highly acclaimed VXD linear motor focus mechanism, previously featured in the 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VXD (Model A056). This system ensures rapid and precise movement, delivering responsive performance. Even at the extreme 500mm focal length, the lens guarantees rapid, accurate focusing across all distances, from close-up to far-off subjects. This advancement is particularly valuable for capturing fast-moving subjects like sports, birds, and aviation scenes, whether in photography or videography, while the linear motor reduces operational noise and vibrations, making it suitable for low-noise environments.

Outstanding image stabilization with TAMRON's VC technology.

The slim and compact 150-500mm F5-6.7 incorporates TAMRON's VC mechanism, offering three VC mode selections (Standard, Exclusively for Panning, and Framing Priority) to match shooting conditions. This functionality effectively stabilizes images, reducing blurriness due to camera shake.

Exciting telephoto macro capabilities.

The 150-500mm F5-6.7 surprises with its close-up shooting abilities for an ultra-telephoto lens. With a minimum object distance of 0.6m (23.6 in) at 150mm and 1.8m (70.9 in) at 500mm, along with a high 1:3.1 maximum magnification ratio at 150mm, users can capture impactful telephoto-macro shots of subjects like flowers and insects while maintaining a reasonable shooting distance, surpassing what's achievable with standard ultra-telephoto zoom lenses.

Enhanced convenience features.

The lens arrives with an Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount and strap attachment holes, a flexible and protective front portion on the lens hood, an improved switch design for smoother operation, and the FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism for enhanced usability.
