Di II : for APS-C DSLRs
The World’s Lightest, Smallest 15x Zoom*,
with Tamron’s First PZD (Piezo Drive)
The acclaimed Tamron 18-270mm VC ultra zoom for APS-C format DSLRs has reached
an astonishing new level of compactness, performance, and speed with the addition of
PZD (Piezo Drive), an innovative ultrasonic autofocus motor based on an advanced piezo
electric design. The result is a lens that’s considerably lighter, and noticeably shorter and
slimmer (filter diameter: 62mm) than any previous lens in its class, and provides faster,
quieter auto-focusing. Signature features that have made this amazingly versatile lens the
world standard in its class have been retained. They include

Tamron Lens Technology
The Inside Edge: Innovative Ideas In Pursuit Of Optical Perfection
For over half a century Tamron has been recognized as a leading innovator in cutting-edge optical design, and
acclaimed for its mastery of the underlying mechanical and electronic technologies that make today’s amazing
lenses possible. Developing practical, compact, easy-to-use lightweight zoom lenses with incredible zoom ranges,
apertures and close focusing ability, that also deliver world-class imaging performance, is not simply a matter of
refining existing ideas—it entails creative thinking at the highest level. Here is a definitive list that explains each of the
original proprietary design concepts used in today’s state-of-the-art Tamron lenses.
Di
Digitally Integrated Lenses
For Top Imaging Performance
Introducing "VC" - Tamron's Unique
Vibration Compensation Mechanism
Di ( Digitally Integrated Design ) is a Tamron
designation that applies to lenses that have
been optimized for digital capture using
advanced multi-coating techniques and optical
designs that assure excellent image quality
across the entire picture field. Because of these
characteristics, Di lenses provide outstanding
performance on cameras with full-frame and
APS-C format sensors as well as on 35mm film.
Tamron's unique VC ( Vibration Compensation)
mechanism uses a proprietary actuator and
algorithms to deliver an extremely stable viewfinder
image with excellent tracking. The mechanism uses
a three-coil system to electromagnetically drive the
lens element that compensates for vibration, which
glides smoothly on three steel bearings with little
friction. This simple mechanical structure is one of
the secrets to Tamron's compact lenses.
*VC is loaded on B005(17-50mm), B008(18-270mm), A20(28-300mm)
and A005 (70-300mm/except Sony mount).

OFF
ON
Digitally Integrated Lenses
Optimized For APS-C Format
Digital SLR Cameras
Di II is the designation Tamron applies to
lenses designed for exclusive use on digital
SLR cameras with APS-C format image
sensors. All Di II lenses are optimized to
meet the performance characteristics of this
popular class of cameras, providing maximum
resolution concentrated within the image field
and assuring that light rays at the edges of the
frame reach the sensor at favorable angles,
thereby minimizing peripheral light falloff. In
addition, all lenses bearing this designation
incorporate effective measures to increase light
transmission and eliminate ghosting and flare,
which are particularly noticeable with digital
cameras. Tamron’s advanced multi-coatings
are applied not only to external and internal
lens surfaces, but also to surfaces in between
cemented lens elements. Finally, Di II lenses are
offered in a wide array that includes the focal
length ranges most desired by DSLR shooters.
SP
Super Performance For
Discriminating Shooters
Tamron SP ( Super Performance) series is a line
of ultra-high-performance lenses designed and
manufactured to the exacting specifications
demanded by professionals and others who
require the highest possible image quality. In
creating SP lenses Tamron’s optical designers
put their foremost priority on achieving superior
performance parameters—they are all designed
to a higher standard with little regard for cost
constraints. As a result, Tamron lenses bearing
the SP designation feature impressive and
innovative designs that have established an
enviable reputation for excellence among those
knowledgeable photographers that demand the
very best.
Focal length: 300mm Exposure: F/9 at 1/30 sec
VC (Vibration Compensation) Unit Structure [ for Model A20]
XR
Special Glass For Better
Performance And More Compact
Lens Designs
XR (Extra Refractive Index ) glass can bend light
rays at steeper angles, thereby decreasing the
physical length of the lens while enhancing
imaging performance by minimizing optical
aberrations. This has allowed Tamron to develop
a line of shorter, smaller-diameter, lighter lenses
without sacrificing lens speed, and actually
upgrading image quality compared to older
designs. XR glass is costlier than conventional
glass but it yields enhanced optical power
distribution, making possible many of the
outstanding and innovative lens designs that
bear the XR designation.
XR glass, with its superior light-bending power,
makes it possible to design a short-barrel lens
with the same light-gathering ability (aperture
value) as a long-barrel lens—even with a smaller
lens diameter. By using this principle Tamron
has been able to shorten the length of the
entire optical system and produce lighter, more
compact lenses of the same speed, and also to
provide greater zoom ranges in lenses that are
much more convenient to carry and hand-hold.
ASL
Hybrid Aspherical Elements
Provide the Ultimate in
Image Quality and Compactness
Tamron uses several hybrid aspherical lens
elements in the 18-250mm, 17-50mm VC,
17-50mm, 28-75mm, 28-300mm ( XR Di and
VC ) and other lenses bearing the Aspherical
designation. These innovative optics allow us to
achieve the ultimate in image quality, and at the
same time produce lenses that offer remarkable
zoom ranges in extraordinarily compact
packages, By perfecting these cutting-edge
advances for series production, Tamron has
advanced the state of optical design, and
virtually eliminated spherical aberration and
image distortion from the high-power-zoom
series. Through the effective application of
Hybrid Aspherical Technology, one lens element
can take the place of multiple elements without
compromising performance. This is what allows
us to produce remarkably compact long-range
lenses that deliver a uniformly high level of
image quality at all focal lengths and apertures.

LD
Low Dispersion (LD) Glass
For Greater Lens Sharpness
Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens
help reduce chromatic aberration, the tendency
of light of different colors to come to different
points of focus at the image plane. Chromatic
aberration reduces the sharpness of an image,
but glass with an extremely low dispersion
index, has less of a tendency to separate
(diffract) a ray of light into a rainbow of colors.
This characteristic allows the lens designer to
effectively compensate for chromatic aberration
at the center of the field (on axis), a particular
problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto
end of the zoom range), and for lateral chromatic
aberration (toward the edges of the field ) that
often occurs at short focal lengths (the wideangle end of the zoom range).
Image plane
control the dispersion factors of a specific
wavelength. This enhanced level of control results
much lower levels of on-axis (central) chromatic
aberration for telephoto lenses (or zooms used
at telephoto settings) and a significant reduction
of lateral (peripheral) chromatic aberration for
wide-angle lenses (or zooms used at wideangle settings).

XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) lens
Extra Low Dispersion ( XLD) lens elements made
from specialized ultra-high-grade glass allow
Tamron lens designers to achieve much greater
control over chromatic aberration (color fringing)
and magnification aberrations, the two major
factors that inhibit image quality enhancement.
In combination with LD elements, XLD elements
are used to achieve sophisticated lenses that
deliver the highest possible contrast, the finest
detail, and superior imaging performance
throughout the entire zoom range.
Tamron uses advanced multi-coating techniques
to suppress reflections and light dispersion on
lens element surfaces that result in reduced
light transmission and may, under adverse
conditions, cause flare and ghost images that
reduce contrast and can diminish image quality.
The BBAR (Broad-Band, Anti-Reflection)
multiple-layer coating technique also helps to
provide the best possible color balance for
vibrant and accurate color rendition. Tamron
has developed an improved proprietary version
of BBAR multi-coating that successfully
increases light transmission in both longer and
shorter wavelengths, and has applied it to all
the latest Tamron lenses.

Ultrasonic Silent Drive
Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) is an ingeniously
upgraded auto-focus-drive system developed
by Tamron to deliver the extraordinary autofocusing (AF) speed and precision needed
to capture every nuance high-speed sports
action, along with virtually noiseless operation
as required for discreet picture taking. Based
on advanced motor technology and newly
developed software, it employs a piezoelectric
ceramic element to generate two high-frequency
ultrasonic vibrations on the motor’s stator ring.
This in turn causes the adjacent metallic rotor
to rotate by means of deflective traveling waves
when voltage of a specific frequency is applied.
This advanced electronically controlled autofocus system is linked to a precision focusing
helical that moves the lens to the precise focus
point. The result: A remarkable new level of AF
speed, accuracy, smoothness, and silence.
*USD is loaded on A005 (70-300mm).

Anomalous Dispersion (AD)
For Better Color Correction
Piezo Drive
Anomalous dispersion (AD) glass is a special
type of optical glass that is used to achieve more
precise control of chromatic aberrations, thereby
enhancing overall imaging performance. Glass
of this type provides an abnormally large
partial dispersion ratio (amount of diffraction)
for light of specific wavelength ranges (colors)
within the visible spectrum. By combining AD
glass having these special characteristics with
elements made of normal glass having different
dispersion characteristics, it is possible to
An exclusive Tamron innovation, PZD is an
advanced ultrasonic, autofocus (AF) motor based
on the latest piezoelectric technology—the
standing wave principle. It utilizes high-frequency
voltage to turn a ceramic piezoelectric element
with a swiveling motion, causing the metal tip
at the rotor’s contact point to rotate elliptically,
thereby turning the rotor to focus the lens swiftly,
silently, and with great precision.
Standing wave ultrasonic motors like the one
used in Tamron’s innovative PZD have a number
Zoom Lock (ZL) Feature
Another original Tamron mechanical engineering
concept is the Zoom Lock ( ZL ), a simple
convenience feature that prevents undesired
extension (creep) of the lens barrel when carrying
the camera / lens unit on a neck strap. This
enhances responsiveness in the field and helps
protect the lens.
Possesses a relatively
uniform partial
dispersion ratio.

of advantages. They’re smaller and lighter and
also provide faster and quieter operation than
DC motors for improved AF performance.
Compared with their predecessors, their actuator
system allows far greater flexibility in lens design,
reducing the overall size and weight of the lens.
Internal focusing (IF) provides numerous
practical benefits to photographers including a
non-rotating front filter ring that facilitates the
positioning of polarizing and graduated filters,
and more predictable handling because the lens
length does not change during focusing. Even
more important, Tamron’s Internal Focusing
(IF) system provides a much closer minimum
focusing distance (MFD) throughout its entire
focusing range. In addition, IF improves optical
performance by minimizing illumination loss at the
corners of the image field (vignetting), and helps
to suppress other aberrations that become more
troublesome at different focusing positions.
AFMF
Auto-focus/Manual focus (AF/MF)
Switch Mechanism on the Focus Ring
The ability to switch quickly between auto-focus
( AF ) and manual focus (MF ) is a great asset in
many types of shooting, especially sports and
nature photography. This is easily accomplished
with Tamron’s ingenious AF/MF system. By
simply sliding the focus ring back and forth
between the two positions you can select either
the AF or the MF focusing position. In manualfocus mode Tamron lenses provide smooth,
precise manual focusing by turning their wide,
well-textured focusing rings.
Integrated Focus Cam Design For
Optimizing Internal Focusing
Tamron’s Integrated Focus Cam is a precision
mechanical component that optimizes the
coordinated movement of the Internal Focusing
(IF) system with the Multiple-Cam Zoom
Mechanism. This ingenious Focus Cam is
designed to insure seamless and precise
positioning of all the highly sophisticated internal
elements within the lens and coordinate them
with the convenient external zoom and focus
controls that comprise the user interface.
Designed to Fit AF Cameras from
Major Camera Makers
Tamron’s AF lenses fit AF models by four major
camera makers. Please be sure to select the
appropriate mount for your camera.
