Description

 

 

The pursuit of functional beauty is applied to every aspect of the new ultra-telephoto zoom

This design philosophy in pursuit of functional beauty with a “Human Touch” is applied even to minute details for the SP 150-600mm G2 ultra-telephoto lens as well.

The design includes the front portion of the lens composed of curved surfaces that comfortably fit in the palm of a photographer’s hand, the focus ring and zoom ring with the groove width optimized to improve user-friendliness, the focus limiter switch allowing for easy operation, the easy-to-hold grip compatible with the Arca-Swiss type quick release system, and other features. The lens hood with smooth curves that fit the lens barrel has a design that allows for its easy attachment and removal. While using metal as the exterior material and adding numerous new functions such as the FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism, the SP 150-600mm G2 achieves a size and weight making comfortable handheld shooting possible, with a slim and stylish appearance design to top it all off.

Enhanced optics meet greater versatility

The SP 150-600mm G2 includes three LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements which completely eliminate axial and transverse chromatic aberrations. It also features upgraded optical construction (21 elements in 13 groups).

Anti-reflection technologies, eBAND (Extended Bandwidth and Angular-Dependency) Coating and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating improve light transmission and suppress internal reflections, including light reflected off the camera’s image sensors. So even when taking a backlit or semi-backlit photograph, ghosting and flare caused by reflected light are fully eliminated.

Additional enhancements expand the lens’s versatility. For example, MOD (Minimum Object Distance) has been reduced to 2.2m so you can enjoy tele-macro photography and dramatic bokeh.

Capture the moment with sharpness and accuracy

The Model A022 is equipped with a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ring-type motor that delivers excellent responsiveness and control. AF speed is significantly improved from current model, and it enables accurate high-speed focus even when capturing moving subjects.

Focal Length: 375mm Exposure: F/7.1 1/80sec ISO: 100


Keep it steady with improved VC (Vibration Compensation)

The VC (Vibration Compensation) effectiveness is equivalent to 4.5 stops, based on image stabilization performance levels established by CIPA (Camera and Imaging Products Association) when using in VC MODE 3. SP 150-600mm G2 has three types of VC modes.

VC MODE 1
The standard mode that strikes a great balance between the stability of the viewfinder image and the stabilization effects.

VC MODE 2
Exclusively used for panning.

VC MODE 3
Prioritizes the stabilization of the captured images and forgoes the stabilization of the viewfinder image.

Protect your lens with Fluorine Coating and Moisture-Resistant Construction

The front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water- and oil-repellant. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints. For greater protection when shooting outdoors, leak-proof seals throughout the lens barrel help protect your equipment.

FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism enables zoom lock at any position

FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism quickly locks or unlocks the zoom at any position simply by sliding the zoom ring. Photographers can shoot from any angle without the zoom extending unintentionally. Additionally, the conventional Zoom Lock switch prevents unwanted barrel extension during transportation.


Optional accessories

Compatible with two exclusive tele converters

Two exclusive tele converters offering 1.4x and 2.0x magnification have been designed to match the optics of the SP 150-600mm G2, providing a maximum zoom range up to 1200mm.

Compatible with the TAMRON TAP-in ConsoleTM

The optional TAP-in Console provides a USB connection to your personal computer, enabling you to easily update your lens’s firmware as well as customize features including fine adjustments to the autofocus and VC.

Additional product features
