Tamron announces next generation 90mm Macro lens for full-size SLR cameras
Tamron announced the release of a next generation 90mm Macro lens for full-size SLR cameras. The lens features completely redesigned optics, a proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) and USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive). Adopting a state-of-the-art optical design and a rounded diaphragm Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (Model F004) lens carries on the long tradition of Tamron’s 90mm Macro lens in delivering spectacular blur effects. Two XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) glasses and one LD (Low Dispersion) element reduce chromatic aberrations, yielding sharp images and outstanding resolution.
Tamron’s newly developed eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating delivers a dramatic improvement in antireflection performance—significantly reducing flare and ghosting for clearer, crisper images. The Canon mount will first be released in Japan, on November 22, 2012; sales dates outside of Japan are scheduled to follow subsequently. The sales dates of the Nikon and Sony compatible mounts will be released at a later date. Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (Model F004) weighs approximately 550g.
