Welcoming My New Lens

My old one,
Tamron AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO

The features of the Tamron 18-270mm lens

  1. World’s first and greatest zoom ratio of 15X, covering 28-419mm 35mm-equivalent angle of view
  2. Tamron’s original VC mechanism for effective shake-free hand-held photography
  3. Designing a high power, compact zoom lens with VC mechanism: Optical design optimization meets optimum power distribution
  4. Minimum focusing distance of 19.3” over the entire zoom range for the max. mag. ratio of 1:3.5
  5. Optical system optimized for digital SLR cameras by taking incident rays of light reaching the image sensor into consideration
  6. High resolution performance
  7. Thorough countermeasures, including advanced internal surface coatings, prevent ghosting and flare
  8. The world’s first and greatest zoom power of 15X plus built-in VC mechanism achieved along with a remarkably slim maximum diameter of less than 80mm
  9. Zoom lock mechanism for convenience in carrying the outfit
  10. Flower-shaped lens hood as a standard accessory
  11. New outer design matches the newest generation high power zoom lens in the digital era
