Tamron introduces a new mega travel zoom with a focal range of 18-270mm. Tamron still holds the world record in the focal length range for SLR lenses*. The lens features a newly developed piezo ultrasonic motor, which ensures a silent, precise and extraordinary fast autofocus. Furthermore the unique (VC) vibration technology was improved to allow for a more compact design. The lens convinces with its high level of usability, featuring a focal length range which covers just about every photographic situation. Its compactness and light-weight construction make it the ideal travel companion. The lens not only covers everything from wide-angle for landscape to tele for close-up photography, but also offers light-macro capability at a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3,8 throughout the focal length range, to magnify the small things in life.
*As per December 3rd, 2010. The Tamron model B003 also has an equivalent focal length range of 18-270mm. Megazoom
A lens from the megazoom class allows you to capture a much larger area. Megazooms offer focal lengths from wide angles down to the telephoto range and are thus the lens of choice for most situations. As a result of their high level of flexibility, compact size and low weight, these lenses are particularly suitable for daily use as an all-round lens, as well as for vacations, activities requiring little baggage or for families with children and all their gear in tow.

The Tamron Piezo Drive stands out due to its fast autofocus speed, extreme precision and ultra-quiet operating volume.
The Piezo Drive enables noticeably quick yet at the same time almost silent focussing. VC Image Stabilization (Vibration Compensation)
The tried-and-tested Tamron VC Image Stabilizer (Vibration Compensation) ensures this lens delivers sharp and shake-free images. This means that the lens is also perfectly suited for hand-held photos and low-light conditions.
The VC Image Stabilizer delivers sharp and shake-free images, as well as a smooth viewfinder image. XR (Extra Refractive Index) Glass
A special glass with a particularly high refractive index for greater performance and a compact lens design. ASL
Hybrid aspherical elements ensure unique image quality and compactness. LD (Low Dispersion)
Lens element for greater image sharpness and the correction of chromatic aberration. Internal-Focusing (IF)-System
The extension length of the lens does not change during focussing and the close focussing distance is significantly reduced across the entire focusing range. Zoom Lock (ZL) Mechanism
Protects against undesired extension of the lens barrel. Sample Images
