Imported from USA
In addition, it is the first Tamron lens sporting a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), Tamron's very own
ultrasonic auto–focus drive mechanism. This USD mechanism delivers fast focusing, making it a perfect telephoto zoom
choice for photographing sports, racing, or other fast–moving subjects. The lens also boasts Tamron's proprietary VC
(Vibration Compensation) image stabilization to assist in hand–held photography, not only at long focal length ranges
where blurring is common, but also under low–lit conditions, dramatically enhancing photographic freedom. This
comnbination of best in class image resolution, Ultrasonic Silent Drive and Vibration Compensation is a new achievement
of Tamron technology, culminating in the production of a premium 70–300mm telephoto zoom lens.
From the Manufacturer
In the pursuit to achieve the most outstanding image resolution in the 70-300mm class, Tamron’s Anniversary lens - the
SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD - utilizes an advanced optical design that features an LD (Low Dispersion) and an XLD
(Extra Low Dispersion) lens element made from specialized materials that prevent chromatic aberration. As a result, the
SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) boasts sharper contrast and greater descriptive performance than all others
in its class.

Super Performance (SP) for Discriminating Shooters
Tamron SP (Super Performance) series is a line of ultra-high-performance lenses designed and manufactured to the
exacting specifications demanded by professionals and others who require the highest possible image quality. In creating
SP lenses Tamron’s optical designers put their foremost priority on achieving superior performance parameters - they are
all designed to a higher standard with little regard for cost constraints. As a result, Tamron lenses bearing the SP
designation feature impressive and innovative designs that have established an enviable reputation for excellence among
those knowledgeable photographers that demand the very best.
A Full-Time Manual Focus Makes Fine Tuning Easy
Tamron SP AF60mm F/2 Di II BBAR lens reduces reflection All Tamron lenses have high auto focus precision and
are designed to capture subjects easily and in almost any situation, yet sometimes a photographer wants to fine-tune and
make adjustments on the fly. The integration of a full-time manual focus offers just that: instead of fumbling with
switches, photographers can from auto-focus to manual-focus by simply adjusting the focus ring. This feature helps the
lens produce impressive results even in telephoto situations where the depth of field is narrow.
Cleaner Crisper Images without Flare or Ghosting
The new BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) reduce the lens reflection and dispersion that cause ghosting and flare. The
coating enhances light transmission in both the short and long wavelength ranges, ensuring excellent performance in all
photographic conditions. Additionally, internal surface coatings are applied to cemented surfaces of all lens elements
to deliver sharp, high-contrast images and flawless color re-production.
Vibration Compensation (VC) Mechanism-Making Telephoto & Low Light a New Medium
The actuator and algorithms, developed in-house at Tamron, provide the power that gives VC (Vibration Compensation)
it's excellent tracking performance and smooth, stable viewfinder image. Tamron's VC mechanism provides a three-coil
system, whereby the three driving coils activate the shake-compensating VC lens groups electromagnetically via three
steel balls. The VC lens elements are held in place only by contact with the steel balls, achieving smooth movement with
little friction, helping to eliminate the blur from camera shakes for clean shots night or indoors, or in macro and
telephoto situations, hand held has never been this easy.

Speed is Nothing if not Stable
Fast and accurate without so much as a whisper. The SP 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD is the first to boast Tamron's new
Ultra Silent Drive (USD). USD is Tamron's latest autofocus motor technology rotor, converting, converting ultrasonic
waves into torque to quietly deliver a new level of focus precision and speed. Because it's still built on a rotor it's
full time manual focus is as easy as ever-allowing the photographer smooth manual focusing without having to fumble with
a switch. With advanced motor technology and newly developed software, Tamron's USD delivers a practical, precise,
noiseless photographic experience at turbo speed. For those dynamic sports shots, moving vehicles, or fast moving
subjects, there has never been a better option.

Extra Low Dispersion (XLD) Lens
Extra Low Dispersion (XLD) lens elements made from specialized ultra-high-grade glass allow Tamron lens designers to
achieve much greater control over chromatic aberration (color fringing) and magnification aberrations, the two major
factors that inhibit image quality enhancement. In combination with LD elements, XLD elements are used to achieve
sophisticated lenses that deliver the highest possible contrast, the finest detail, and superior imaging performance
throughout the entire zoom range.
Full Frame Sensor for Ulitmate Versatility
The SP 70-300mm F/4-5.6 DI VC USD is one of Tamron's Digitally Integrated (Di) designs. The Di series is the mark of
Tamron lenses that are format-versatile since they can be used on Digital APS-C, full-frame and 35mm SLR cameras.

Auto-focus/Manual-focus (AF/MF) Switch Mechanism on the Focus Ring
The ability to switch quickly between auto-focus (AF) and manual-focus (MF) is a great asset in many types of shooting,
especially sports and nature photography. This is easily accomplished with Tamron’s ingenious AF/MF system. By simply
sliding the focus ring back and forth between the two positions you can select either the AF or MF focusing position. In
manual-focus mode Tamron lenses provide smooth, precise manual focusing by turning their wide, well-textured focusing
