Excellent AF performance meets enhanced VC
Precise AF tracking and VC (Vibration Compensation) are essential for ultra-telephoto lens performance. Thatʼs where Tamronʼs Dual MPU high-speed control system comes in. It features an MPU (micro-processing unit) with a built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for superior signal processing, plus a separate MPU dedicated exclusively to vibration compensation. With enhanced AF response speed and VC, you can accurately shoot fast-moving subjects with stability and ease—even in low-light.

Precise, responsive AF performance
A built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) on the MPU delivers highspeed processing of digital signals, while ensuring excellent AF responsiveness. This improvement allows you to track subjects moving at high speeds, even more accurately. The AF drive system also uses a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) motor for outstanding performance and fast, precise focusing.
Keep it steady with enhanced VC
Weʼve fine-tuned our original VC (Vibration Compensation) system with an enhanced control algorithm and an independent MPU dedicated to VC. Together, they meet a CIPA image stabilization performance level of 4 stops. While most ultra-telephoto lenses are prone to camera shake, the Model A035 delivers excellent stability for reliable, stress-free handheld shooting.
Expand your possibilities with an optional tripod mount
Using a tripod (A035TM) is as easy as shooting handheld with the 100-400mm. Its new textured grip is easy to handle and Arca-Swiss release compatibility and easy detachment improve your speed and flexibility. Now you can choose your subject—and your most suitable shooting method.
TAMRON Tele Converter 1.4x
The Tamron tele converter 1.4x further optimizes ultra-telephoto shooting by extending your lens’ focal length to a zoom range of 140-560mm. Experience additional precision with an F8-compatible sensor.
More options. More freedom. TAMRON TAP-in Console
Optional compatibility with the TAMRON TAP-in Console provides a USB connection from your lens to your personal computer, allowing you to easily update firmware. You can also customize features like making fine adjustments to the in-focus position of the autofocus.
