A New Standard in Telephoto Zoom Lenses

The 50-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD is a class-leading 6x telephoto zoom lens that starts at a wide 50mm, providing a broader field of view compared to traditional 70-300mm lenses. This unique feature opens up new possibilities for creative expression, allowing photographers to capture stunning images from a variety of perspectives.

Compact and Lightweight Design

Despite its impressive zoom range, the 50-300mm lens boasts a compact size of just 150mm (5.9 inches) in length and a lightweight design at 665g (23.5 ounces). This makes it incredibly portable and easy to handle, perfect for photographers on the go. The lens pairs exceptionally well with APS-C cameras, offering a full-frame equivalent focal length of 75-450mm for even greater versatility.

Superior Optical Performance

Engineered for high image quality, the lens features an advanced optical construction with 19 elements in 14 groups, including two XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and two LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements. These special elements effectively control chromatic aberrations and produce sharp, clear images across the entire zoom range. TAMRON’s BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) Coating further enhances image clarity by reducing ghosting and flare.

Fast and Precise Autofocus

The lens is equipped with TAMRON’s VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism, delivering high-speed, high-precision autofocus with superb subject tracking performance. The VXD motor ensures quiet operation, making it ideal for both photography and videography in noise-sensitive environments.

Exceptional Close-Range Shooting

At the 50mm wide end, the lens achieves a Minimum Object Distance (MOD) of 0.22m (8.7 inches) with a remarkable maximum magnification ratio of 1:2. This allows for excellent half-macro shooting, perfect for capturing intricate details and close-up subjects. Even at the 300mm telephoto end, the lens maintains a close focusing distance of 0.9m (35.4 inches) with a magnification ratio of 1:3.1.

Advanced Vibration Compensation

TAMRON’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism provides powerful image stabilization, minimizing camera shake and enabling sharp, stable shots even in challenging conditions. This feature is particularly beneficial when shooting at longer focal lengths or in low-light environments.

Enhanced Usability and Durability

Designed for maximum convenience, the lens features a 67mm filter size, a focus set button for customizable functions, and a zoom lock mechanism to prevent unwanted zoom extension. The moisture-resistant construction and fluorine coating ensure durability and reliability in various shooting conditions.

Seamless Integration with TAMRON Lens Utility

The lens includes a connector port for the dedicated TAMRON Lens Utility software, allowing users to customize lens functions and update firmware easily. This ensures that photographers can always enjoy the latest features and improvements.
