Tamron-SP-70-300mm-Di-USD_VThis state-of-the-art telephoto zoom lens is the culmination of decades of Tamron innovation in ultra-long-range zoom optics. It’s engineered to provide professional and photo enthusiast users of full-frame and APS-C-format digital SLR cameras with the ultimate in image quality and handling in the telephoto zoom class—delivering an incredible 109–465mm equivalent on APS-C-format DSLRs.

Built to exacting SP (Superior Performance) standards, it delivers ultra-high resolution across the image field at all focal lengths, along with the first-ever, energy-efficient USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) for ultrafast autofocusing and responsiveness. And with Tamron’s built-in Vibration Compensation system that combats the effects of camera shake, you’re assured of sharp images even when shooting hand-held.

The SP 70–300mm lens’s premium LD (low dispersion) and XLD glass provide superior resolution and imaging performance over its entire range. BBAR multi-coating controls flare while internal focusing improves close-up performance down to an impressive 1:4 macro. It comes in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts (the latter without VC). $449.
