Details: Product Description The SP 150-600mm G2 (Generation 2) ultra-telephoto lens with upgraded optical performance enables handheld shooting with remarkable definition. This new lens builds upon the success of the original and much acclaimed SP 150-600mm (Model A011, which Tamron first introduced in December 2013), including better overall optical performance and faster AF speed, VC enhancements, plus Fluorine Coating, FLEX ZOOM LOCK and optional, matched tele converters. Rebuilt from the ground-up to meet Tamron’s strict quality standards and design specifications, this new zoom combines smart engineering and high performance with quality craftsmanship, durability and user friendliness. The 150-600mm G2 includes three LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements which completely eliminate axial and transverse chromatic aberrations. It also features upgraded optical construction (21 elements in 13 groups). Anti-reflection technologies, eBAND (Extended Bandwidth and Angular-Dependency) Coating and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating improve light transmission and suppress internal reflections, including light reflected off the camera’s image sensors. So even when taking a backlit or semi-backlit photograph, ghosting and flare caused by reflected light are fully eliminated. Additional enhancements expand the lens’s versatility. For example, MOD (Minimum Object Distance) has been reduced to 2.2m so you can enjoy tele-macro photography and dramatic bokeh. The VC (Vibration Compensation) effectiveness is equivalent to 4.5 stops, based on image stabilization performance levels established by CIPA (Camera and Imaging Products Association) when using in VC MODE 3 the SP 150-600mm G2 has three types of VC modes. VC MODE 1 - The standard mode that strikes a great balance between the stability of the viewfinder image and the stabilization effects. VC MODE 2 - Exclusively used for panning. VC MODE 3 - Prioritizes the stabilization of the captured images and forgoes the stabilization of the viewfinder image. Box Contains 150-600mm G2 Lens, Lens Hood, Body cap, Lens cap, Instructions
