Excerpt from the Award Citation of the TIPA Jury
BEST TELEPHOTO ZOOM LENS
TAMRON 50-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD (Model A067)
The Tamron 50-400mm lens is an ideal choice for a wide range of photographic applications, thanks to its close focusing distance of 25cm (9.8 inches) at the 50mm setting. Whether you’re shooting sports events, wildlife, or landscapes, this lens is compact and easy to transport, with an overall length of only 183.4mm (7.2 inches). To ensure sharp and stable shots, the lens features a VXD linear focusing mechanism and a vibration compensation system (VC) that helps reduce camera shake in low light or when shooting at slower shutter speeds. This allows you to take advantage of a wider range of shooting opportunities, even in challenging lighting conditions. In addition to its still photography capabilities, the Tamron 50-400mm lens can also be used for movie shooting when combined with the Tamron Lens Utility.
BEST CONTENT CREATOR LENS
TAMRON 20-40mm F/2.8 Di III VXD (Model A062)
The Tamron 20-40mm F/2.8 lens is a compact and versatile option for mirrorless camera systems, with an ergonomic design that works well with gimbals or camera rigs. It’s a great choice for vloggers and content creators, particularly when used with the Tamron Lens Utility software. The lens’s wide field of view is ideal for selfies, while the 40mm focal length is well-suited for close-ups and scene-setting. The lens is lightweight and compact, making it ideal for on-the-go photography, including landscapes, travel, street, and family events. It’s designed for use with Sony E-mount cameras and features a VXD linear motor focusing mechanism that provides accurate autofocus. It also supports Sony’s Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF functions on select cameras.
