Tamron Introduces DSLR Lens Pair

NEW YORK — Tamron used PhotoPlus Expo to preview two more lens packages for DSLR users.

Tamron’s SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD will be available in mounts for Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras for a $1,500 sug- gested retail, and the 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD 90mm macro prime lens will be avail- able for Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts at $850.

The SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD macro offers vibration compensation and an ultra- silent drive system.

The lens employs two extra-low disper- sion glasses and one low dispersion ele- ment to reduce chromatic aberrations. A new extended bandwidth and angular- dependency coating delivers a dramatic improvement in antireflection performance- significantly reducing flare and ghosting for clearer, crisper images, said Stacie Errera, Tamron chief marketing officer.

The SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD offers high contrast and high resolution throughout the zoom range, Tamron said. A multi-layer coating technology improves lens performance by reducing flare and ghosting for crisper, clearer images.

For the compact system camera market, Errera said Tamron released the 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III VC ($740 suggested retail) all-in-one zoom for Sony NEX series camer- as earlier this year. The company continues to work on models for the Micro Four Thirds compact system camera segment.
