Tamron have released their first high-power zoom for Sony’s NEX-series of cameras.
The 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC is a compact and lightweight lens, featuring a 62mm filter diameter and weighing only 460g. Available in black and silver, the new zoom lens will allow users to easily shoot across the whole range – from wide-angle to telephoto. The lens has a corresponding full frame angle of view equivalent of 27mm wide-angle and up to 300mm full telephoto. In addition, by setting the lens at the telephoto end (200mm) and moving in to the minimum focus distance of 0.5m, flower petals, jewelry and other small objects can be shot as expanded close-ups.
The AF drive has a stepping motor that is optimal for the Contrast-detection AF system employed by NEX series cameras. The system also enables improved AF performance when shooting video. In addition, ease of operation is enhanced with the Direct Manual Focus (DMF) function, which allows the user to make fine manual adjustments in the AF focus. The lens is also equipped with Tamron's VC (Vibration Compensation). The lens will be available early 2012, pricing TBC.
