Tamron stepped on the gas and broadened its array of lenses with as many as three new models! The first is the lightweight, compact superzoom Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC, aimed at mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras with APS-C sensors, the next is the progressive All-In-One™ superzoom for full-frame DSLR cameras Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD, as well as another All-In-One™ superzoom, Tamron 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III, yet this one is designed from Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras.
The 18-200mm weighs 459g and is characterized by a stepper motor which provides silent autofocus, and it also boasts optical image stabilization.
On the other hand, the 28-300mm lens (Model A010) differs from its predecessor, Tamron AF 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD (IF) Macro, according to the following reasons: it incorporates an ultrasonic autofocus motor 'Piezo Drive', it is water-resistant, features an advanced coating which suppresses unwanted flare and ghosting, it has got optical image stabilization and weighs 540g.
As far as the 14-150mm (Model C001) lens is concerned, it is the only one out of these novelties which does not boast optical image stabilization, yet on the other hand, it has to offer a stepper motor for silent autofocus (even during video recording), a filter thread of just 52mm, and weighs only 285g.
All the three Tamron lenses arrived at the market on June 26.
