Features Canon EF-S lens mount
Lenses are designed for exclusive use on digital cameras with smaller-size imagers (also known as APS-C sensors). These lenses are not designed for conventional cameras and digital cameras with image sensors larger than 24mm x 16mm (IE. full-frame DSLRs, such as the 5D, 6D series).
The PZD ultrasonic motor delivers a noticeably faster and at the same time quieter autofocus action - ideal for capturing spontaneous moments in razor-sharp images. Furthermore, it also allows you the option of manually focussing the lens at any time.
VC Image Stabilization (Vibration Compensation)
The tried-and-tested Tamron VC Image Stabilizer (Vibration Compensation) ensures this lens delivers sharp and shake-free images. This means that the lens is also perfectly suited for hand-held photos and low-light conditions.
The complex lens construction is splash-proof. As a result, this lens is also suitable for sophisticated outdoor photography.
