Tamron has announced that the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) has presented Tamron with two European Lens awards for 2013-2014.
The Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD has won the 'European Lens 2013-2014' and the Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD has won the 'European Zoom Lens 2013-2014'.
The jury said "Extremely sharp even when used at its maximum aperture, the Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD is one of the best macro lenses on the market, comfortably outperforming its legendary predecessor with the same focal length. Not only does it impress with its optical quality but also with its functionality."
They also commented on the Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD: "This fast F2.8 telephoto zoom lens for full-frame SLRs delivers very good image quality and remarkably consistent resolution. The VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabiliser effectively compensates for camera shake in the Canon and Nikon versions of the lens. Weather sealing around the bayonet makes this lens a good choice for outdoor photography and the ultrasonic motor (USD) provides fast and silent autofocus."
This is the eighth consecutive year that Tamron has has been presented with the EISA for European Lens.
