Tamron has this week introduced a new lens to its range which have been specifically designed to be used with Sony’s NEX range of cameras. The new Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DI III VC lens is equipped with a E-Mount and a 62mm filter diameter and becomes the first to offer Sony NEX with a high powered zoom capability.
There is already an Alpha lens version available, but the new Tamron lens is equipped with a “step-motor” which is designed to align 100% with the contrast AF system of the NEX.
The lens weighs in at around 460g and comes fitted with Tamron’s own Vibration Compensation technology, designed to help you reduce blur while capturing your subjects.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet, but they are expected to arrive in stores sometime in early 2012. As always when more information comes to light we will keep you updated.
