The essence of Tamron technology in a compact, all-in-one zoom that minimizes aberrations and maximizes image quality.
The optical design of this lens includes one LD (Low Dispersion) glass element, two AD (Anomalous Dispersion) glass elements, two Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, and one Hybrid aspherical element. This formula reduces aberrations to a bare minimum to achieve exceptional class-leading image quality. The 14-150mm zoom is the fruit of Tamron’s 20+ years of experience in designing and manufacturing world-class all-in-one zoom lenses.
A Stepping Motor for quick, quiet auto-focusing.
The stepping motor’s actuator allows precise control of angular rotation, and since it drives the focusing mechanism directly without any intermediary reduction gear, it is also exceptionally quiet. These features also give the lens a seamless, fluid auto-focusing action when shooting video.

Tamron Di III – Tamron Di III lenses are engineered specifically for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras with no internal mirror box or pentaprism, adopting an optical design that matches the characteristics of the digital camera. (Note: These lenses cannot be used with digital SLR cameras with built-in mirror box or conventional 35mm film SLR cameras).
Stepping Motor – The stepping motor’s actuator allows finely tuned control of angular rotation, and since it drives the focusing mechanism directly without an intermediate reduction gear, it also provides superbly quiet performance. You can count on this to enhance autofocus capability when shooting video. Furthermore, after adjusting with the AF mechanism, you can use the Direct Manual Focus (DMF) function for delicate adjustments to the image. In short, you can capture the scenes you want focused exactly as you want them every time
