Product description
Announced Jul 30, 2008

Manufacturer description: Tamron innovation yielded the world's highest ratio wide-to-telephoto zoom. Featuring an incredible zoom range of 15x, the 18-270mm Di-II VC defines compositional versatility. Providing a 35mm wide-angle picture angle equivalent of 28mm to an astounding 419mm, image fidelity is assured in two ways. First; award-winning optical design leverages the benefits of LD glass and aspherical optics, rendering crisp and faithful images, while Tamron's unique tri-axial VC (Vibration Compensation) combats image blur caused by camera movement. Improving sharpness at typical shutter speeds and enabling handheld shooting at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, Tamron's three pairs of driving coils and low-function ball bearings placed around the VC optical group provide unsurpassed image stabilization for sharper images and a dramatically stable viewfinder experience.
