Tamron Announces 50-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras, Price, and Release Info at B&H Photo
Photography News: Tamron has just announced its 50-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Apple–B&H is pleased to share the introduction of the new Tamron 50-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras—scheduled for release this fall.
The lens features an 8x zoom ratio while being remarkably compact and portable. With a length of just 7.2″, it is the same size as a conventional 100-400mm zoom lenses, yet this one zooms out to normal focal lengths for everyday scenes.
In addition to its ultra-telephoto capabilities, the lens is well-suited for ½-size macro photography, as well. With a minimum focusing distance of just 9.8″ at the 50mm end, the 50-400mm provides 1:2 magnification for close-up shooting.
The lens is equipped with the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism that delivers fast, quiet, and precise autofocus, and a VC (Vibration Compensation) system reduces camera shake and facilitates shooting at longer focal lengths and slower shutter speeds.
The lens features a USB Type-C connector port for Tamron Lens Utility software, which enables users to customize functions and update the firmware for the lens by using a computer.
Other features include a rapid zoom ring and zoom lock switch, compatibility with many camera-specific features and functions—including Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF, a moisture-resistant design and fluorine coating—to effectively repel dust, water droplets, fingerprints, and dirt, a 67mm front filter size—the same as most other TAMRON mirrorless lenses to provide greater convenience when using multiple lenses and filters together, and an optional Arca-type accessory tripod mount for ease of use when using a tripod.
