The dynamic Tamron 150-500mm F5-6.7 Di III VC VXD For Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras is a compact and versatile super-telephoto zoom lens well suited to capture a wide array of subjects ranging from landscapes and birds to sports and wildlife photography. The optical construction features 25 elements in 16 groups and utilizes special lens elements and hybrid aspherical lens elements to control chromatic aberrations. Each element features a BBAR-G2 coating to reduce flare and ghosting for high contrast and color accuracy. The VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism delivers extreme high-speed and high-precision movement and ensures exceptionally responsive performance and is compatible with Sony Hybrid AF and Eye AF features in enabled cameras. The minimum object distance of 23.6″ at 150mm end of the zoom range provides dynamic close-up imaging and add to the lens’ remarkable overall usability.
The VC image stabilization facilitates shooting handheld at the 500mm ultra-telephoto position, and the Arca-type-compatible rotating tripod mount has integrated strap attachment loops for safety and support when shooting in the field. Designed and built with moisture-resistant construction for use in inclement conditions, plus a fluorine coating on the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smudging.
Well thought out design
This is a hand-holdable full-frame 500mm lens with a maximum diameter of 93mm, measuring 21-28cm throughout the zoom range, which is an astoundingly compact size for a 500mm ultra-telephoto zoom for full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lens zooms from 150mm to 500mm by rotating the zoom ring through less than one-quarter of a turn at just 75°. This helps quick zooming throughout the range to capture the shot.
High image quality
A complex optical design features 25 lens elements in 16 groups. The effective use of special lens elements raises image quality and includes one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion), five LD (Low Dispersion) and two Hybrid Aspherical lens elements. Combined these thoroughly control aberrations including axial chromatic aberrations. This design enables users to maintain high quality whilst benefiting from a compact and portable lens size.
Fast Quiet VXD Focussing
Tamron 150-500mm F5-6.7 Di III VC VXD For Sony E. VXD delivers high-speed and high-precision movement for highly responsive performance. The 150-500mm F5-6.7 provides fast, comfortable and accurate focusing at all shooting distances, from near to far.
Focus tracking has been improved to capture fast-moving subjects. This is particularly useful for those shooting sporting events, birds or aviation photography and capturing videos. The linear motor also reduces drive noise and vibrations making it ideal for shooting both stills and video even in quiet environments.
Ultra stable Vibration Compensation (VC)
The 150-500mm lens is equipped with Tamron’s VC mechanism with a VC mode selection switch with three settings (Mode 1: Standard, Mode 2: Exclusively for Panning, and Mode 3: Framing Priority). This feature delivers excellent image stabilisation performance enabling efficient reduction of image blurring caused by camera shake along with extra versatility for different shooting situations.
This highly capable super telephoto also offers excellent close-up shooting capabilities. The minimum object distance (MOD) is 0.6m at the wide end and 1.8m fully zoomed to 500mm. Maximum magnification at 150mm is exceptionally high at 1:3.1 enabling users to capture close-up telephoto-macro images, exceeding many conventional ultra-telephoto zoom lenses.

Effective ghosting and flare reduction
A BBAR-G2 coating (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) suppresses ghosting and flare to a minimum level and reveals fine details even when the subject is backlit. This also helps to achieve natural colours and rich saturation.
Excellent weather resistance
Outdoor conditions can be changeable so Tamron has employed a moisture resistant construction to protect the lens. The front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water and oil-repellent, which is easily wiped to remove marks.
