About the Tamron 70-300mm

Unparalleled optical performance in a fast and steady telephoto zoom: In the pursuit to achieve the most outstanding image resolution in the 70-300mm class, Tamron's Anniversary lens, the SP AF 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di USD (Model A005) utilizes an advanced optical design that features an LD (Low Dispersion) and an XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) lens element made from specialized materials that prevent chromatic aberration.

As a result, the SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di USD (Model A005) boasts sharper contrast and greater descriptive performance than all others in its class. In addition, it is the first Tamron lens sporting a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), Tamron's very own 27.0 oz. ultrasonic auto-focus drive mechanism.

This USD mechanism delivers fast mechanism focusing, making it a perfect telephoto zoom choice for photographing sports, racing, or other fast-moving subjects.

This combination of best in class image resolution, Ultrasonic Silent Drive is a new achievement of Tamron technology culminating in the production of a premium 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens.

The lens Does NOT have VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization since it is in most Sony cameras already.
