Tamron’s first high-power all-in-one zoom for Sony NEX mirrorless, interchangeable-lens cameras is an innovative lens that is lightweight, compact and features a striking new form factor. And it comes in two color options: solid black or silver and black.
The award-winning 11x zoom lens provides enhanced shooting flexibility with Sony NEX APS-C-format compact system cameras, including the NEX-3, NEX-C3, NEX-5 and NEX-5N. The versatile, all-in-one lens provides you with equivalent focal lengths from 27mm wide angle to 300mm super telephoto plus macro focusing, so you only have to carry this one lens for all your shooting scenarios, from sports to nature and handheld photography.
It incorporates the latest version of Tamron’s VC (vibration compensation) system to combat the effects of camera shake for crisp, sharp photos. This is combined with an advanced optical design and stepping-motor autofocus drive to deliver extraordinary image quality plus seamless autofocus performance—all in an ultracompact lens.
The 18–200mm f/3.5–6.3 Di III VC (model B011) also includes a lens profile for aberration correction control with Adobe Photoshop CS5, Photoshop’s RAW image plug-in Camera Raw, and photo management software Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4. The profile lets you use the above software for easy correction of lens distortion, chromatic aberrations and peripheral brightness.
Tamron Di III lenses are engineered exclusively for E-mount mirrorless, interchangeable-lens cameras with no internal mirror box or pentaprism, adopting an optical design that matches the characteristics of the digital cameras. $739. tamron.com
