Tamron develops worlds first full-size high-speed standard zoom lens with built-in image stabilization
Tamron today announced the development of the SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (Model A007), the world’s first full-size high-speed standard zoom lens equipped with VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization and USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), with resolution at the top of its class. The new Tamron lens uses specialized high-grade glass in the three LD elements, three Glass Molded Aspherical Lenses, one Hybrid Aspherical Lens and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) glasses, delivering top-of-the-class quality images suited to this high-grade lens. Using a rounded diaphragm, the lens achieves gorgeous blur effects.
Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent water from penetrating the lens. The Sony mount does not include VC, because the body of Sony digital SLR cameras includes image stabilization functionality. The product name for Sony cameras is SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di USD without the VC designation.
