Tamron Rolls Out New 17-50mm F/2.8 Zoom Lens

Tamron SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II Lens

Tamron has introduced a new standard zoom lens for Nikon-mount digital SLR cameras with smaller sensors. The Tamron SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II* VC LD Aspherical [IF] lens features the company’s own tri-axial Vibration Compensation (VC) mechanism and gives a focal range of 26-78mm equivalent in the 35mm format.

Tamron says the new lens delivers impressive sharpness and striking contrast over its entire focal-length and aperture range, and at its maximum aperture of f/2.8 it produces beautiful images enhanced by shallow depth of- field, and smooth, natural transitions in out-of-focus areas of the image.

The new lens will be available in Japan from September 17, 2009 at a retail price of about $500.
