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). Di II Taken under the same conditions using a vibrating table 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. • Compensation for Spherical Aberration Image plane Spherical lens element Image plane Aspherical lens element • Distortion Correction (Barrel type) More compact lenses with the same speed: It’s all in the barrel barrel (rear view) long barrel (optics) short barrel (optics) Unbalanced height of oblique incident light rays causes distortion at the image plane. Tamron's aspherical lens design continuously varies the refracting angles of these unbalanced light rays. barrel (side view) Spherical Surface Aspherical Surface The corrected height of incident light rays at the image plane The uncorrected height of incident light rays through a spherical lens element Image plane Compensation effect with an aspherical lens element (schematic illustration) 21 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). AD glass Extremely large partial dispersion ratio relative to a specific wavelength zone Advanced BBAR lens coating technology: The Key to attaining the highest image quality Image plane LD glass The difference in chromatic aberration between normal optical glass and LD glass elements (typical diagram) 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. 22 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). IF Internal Focusing (IF) System AD 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. The difference in partial dispersion factors between normal optical glass and AD glass elements (typical diagram) ZL *PZD is loaded on B008 (18-270mm). Regular Optical Glass Regular Optical Glass XLD 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.

Tamron’s quality assurance and environmental protection activities ISO Standards ISO stands for the International Organization for Standardization. These international standards include the ISO 9000 family of standards relating to quality system management, and the ISO 14000 series for certification of environmental management systems. Certification of environment and quality control are also being applied to all Tamron. Environment Tamron has been assertively addressing concerns about the earth's environment through the reduction of environmental load in business operations based on the ISO 14001. Specifically, Tamron has promoted the “Green Procurement” policy for abrogating harmful substances from the beginning and reinforcing positive environmental programs. At Tamron, we have addressed such issues as energy savings and waste reduction and recycling for reducing environmental loads generated from the manufacture of products. Such activities promote the development of high quality, compact and environmentally friendly products to satisfy customers. In addition, from 2004, Tamron issued Environmental Reports to introduce its socially responsible philosophy and practices for environmental preservation. For further details, please visit Tamron's website at http://www.tamron.co.jp/en/envi/top/index. html ISO 9001 Quality Control Policy *Di-II Lens Series does not have aperture rings. The Detachable Filter Effect Control The Filter Effect Control is designed to rotate the filter to the desired position with the hood attached, enabling you to simultaneously perform minute adjustments to PL filter compensation. You can confirm the Polarizing effect through the viewfinder, all while using the hood to prevent harmful light from entering the lens. Multiple-Cam Mechanism For Smooth, Stable Zooming and Precise Focusing at All Focal Lengths The manufacture of compact, high quality, highpower zoom lenses became a reality only when Tamron perfected a lens chassis that permitted stable and smooth extension of the lens barrel. The “Multiple Cam Zoom Mechanism” is an original Tamron design that incorporates several precision cams cut into a single cylindrical surface by high-tech automated machinery. This key component enables zoom lens barrels to be extended and retracted effortlessly, achieving commendably compact dimensions at the wide-angle settings, while holding precise extension at telephoto settings. Engineering Plastics Technology To insure the highest levels of performance and durability without adding additional weight, Tamron High-Power Zoom Lenses make extensive use of engineering plastic materials in many critical mechanical components of the lens. Tamron has developed advanced proprietary methods for manufacturing these advanced polycarbonate materials to a very high degree of precision, and repeated tests have confirmed their long-lasting properties and dimensional stability under the toughest conditions. Indeed, polycarbonate of this caliber is the material of choice whenever we produce high-precision components that require the strength to withstand rigorous use. Sophisticated Tamron Production Technology Tamron manufacturing processes are certified to demanding ISO 9001 standards, an internationally recognized proof of the most thorough quality control. Tamron’s high-power zoom lenses come out of a factory that is well known for delivering on its world-class capabilities, and is widely respected for its unwavering policy of delivering excellent quality products that meet the total satisfaction of its valued customers. Provide customer satisfaction by delivering high quality products. ISO 14001 Environmental Management Philosophy In accordance with its corporate management philosophy, Tamron's goal is to create and deliver superior quality products and services to meet customer needs. Furthermore, each Tamron employee is fully committed to the preservation of the global environment at every level and for each facet of company activities. At Tamron, we recognize the significance of our social responsibilities.
