  1. Press release: TAMRON Announces Ultra-telephoto Zoom for FUJIFILM X-Mount 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD (Model A057) Compact 750mm (full-frame equivalent) offers easy super telephoto shooting opportunities September 20, 2022, Commack, NY - Tamron announces the launch of the 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD (Model A057), an ultra-telephoto zoom lens for FUJIFILM X-mount. The lens is will be on sale October 13, 2022 at $1499. However, due to the current global health crisis, the release date or product supply schedule could change. The 150-500mm F5-6.7 covers a full-frame equivalent focal length range of 225mm to 750mm, combining compact size with stunning image quality across the entire zoom range—from the center of the image to the edges. Photographers can now easily enjoy the benefits of ultra-telephoto photography with its easy-to-handle compact body. The new ultra-telephoto zoom is equipped with the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) precise and high-speed linear motor focus mechanism and TAMRON’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism. At the 150mm end, the lens offers an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 23.6” for powerful and dramatic close-ups. PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS 1. Compact 750mm equivalent¹ ultra-telephoto zoom lens Although it reaches the ultra-telephoto focal length equivalent of 750mm, the 150-500mm F5-6.7 is still quite compact in size with a length of just 8.3” and a maximum diameter of 93mm. Even when extended fully to the telephoto end, the length of the lens is only 11.2” so it can be used comfortably. The lens zooms from 150mm to 500mm by rotating the zoom ring through an arc of just 75° that enables rapid adjustment to the desired angle of view with minimal movement, avoiding missed opportunities and facilitating intuitive composition. 2. Amazing high image quality The optical construction features 25 elements in 16 groups. The generous and effective use of special lens elements including one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) element, five LD (Low Dispersion) elements, and two Hybrid Aspherical lens elements thoroughly controls aberrations including axial chromatic aberrations. And because the 150-500mm F5-6.7 is designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras, it delivers extremely high image quality and overall performance across the entire zoom range, in the center and from edge-to-edge. 3. VXD AF motor provides high speed, high precision, and excellent quietness The 150-500mm F5-6.7 features the VXD linear motor focus mechanism. VXD delivers high-speed and high-precision movement and ensures responsive performance. Additionally, the linear motor also reduces drive noise and vibrations produced during focusing (as compared to a conventional drive system), making it ideal for shooting both still photos and video in low-noise environments. 4. TAMRON’s acclaimed VC delivers excellent image stabilization The slim, compact 150-500mm F5-6.7 is equipped with TAMRON’s VC mechanism. The lens features a VC mode selection switch with three settings (Mode 1: Standard, Mode 2: Exclusively for Panning, and Mode 3: Framing Priority) so the ideal VC mode can be invoked to match shooting conditions. This functionality delivers excellent image stabilization performance, enabling efficient reduction of image blur caused by camera shake. 5. Telephoto-macro shooting unleashes excellent close-range shooting performance The 150-500mm F5-6.7 offers excellent close-up shooting capabilities for an ultra-telephoto lens. The MOD is 23.6” at the 150mm end and 70.9” at the 500mm telephoto end. The maximum magnification ratio at 150mm is exceptionally high at 1:3.1 (the full-frame equivalent of 1:2.1). Users can shoot powerful telephoto-macro images of subjects including flowers and insects while maintaining a reasonable shooting distance — closer than you can get with conventional ultra-telephoto zoom lenses. 6. Additional features for greater convenience Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount with strap attachment holes included Lens hood with flexible, protective front portion Switch designed for ease of operation and handling FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism to support greater usability Equipped with an MF SPEED switch that is handy when focusing manually 7. BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) Coating delivers stunning clarity and contrast 8. Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating provide extra protection Footnotes ¹ Full-frame equivalent focal length
  2. Press release: TAMRON Announces the Launch of the World’s First1 Wide Range 4.1x Standard Zoom Lens for FUJIFILM X-mount 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070) June 15, 2022, Commack, NY - Tamron announces the launch of the 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070), a fast-aperture standard zoom lens for FUJIFILM X-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras. The lens is scheduled to be on sale on July 8, 2022, at $799. However, due to the current global health crisis, the release date or product supply schedule could change. This new lens is the FUJIFILM X-Mount version of the 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070) released in January 2021 for Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras. It features a maximum aperture of F2.8 across the entire 4.1x zoom ratio that covers the focal length range of 17-70mm (full-frame equivalent of 25.5-105mm), and superb optical performance. It is a small, lightweight lens equipped with Tamron’s VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism to minimize camera shake. The VC mechanism leverages AI technology when shooting video. It is also equipped with the quiet RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) AF motor and has minimal focus breathing. These features enable videographers to shoot comfortably when using a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. For added versatility, the 17-70mm F2.8 offers an exceptional MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 7.5” at the wide-angle end, Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating. Its 67mm filter size is the same as most TAMRON lenses for mirrorless cameras. It is a highly useful lens that delivers high image quality for photography and videography with its fast F2.8 aperture. PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS 1. World’s first fast-aperture standard zoom lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras with the focal length range of 17-70mm (4.1x zoom ratio) The Model B070 has a focal length range of 17-70mm, equivalent to 25.5-105mm on full-frame cameras. It is the first F2.8 fast-aperture zoom lens in the world for APS-C mirrorless cameras to achieve a 4.1x zoom ratio. 2. Outstanding optical performance The optical construction of the 17-70mm F2.8 features 16 elements in 12 groups. Two GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) and one hybrid aspherical lens elements are precisely arranged to maintain high-resolution performance from edge to edge. 3. VC mechanism optimized for both still images and video shooting The 17-70mm F2.8 features TAMRON's proprietary VC mechanism. Additional sophisticated algorithms optimized for this model and a dedicated, independently operating MPU (Micro Processor Unit) all combine to superbly compensate for vibration. This feature is available when the lens is used with cameras with or without in-body image stabilization. When shooting video, by leveraging AI technology, image stabilization performs automatically to best compensate for different shooting situations. 4. Exceptionally quiet RXD stepping motor The 17-70mm F2.8 incorporates TAMRON's proprietary RXD stepping motor. Remarkably quiet, the lens facilitates photography and videography in conditions that require silence. Supporting stress-free focusing from the wide-angle to the telephoto end of the zoom range, RXD technology enables the camera's focus tracking of moving objects to perform superbly. 5. Suppresses focus breathing The 17-70mm F2.8 has minimal focus breathing, an undesirable phenomenon in which the angle of view changes depending on the focusing distance during videography. By counteracting focus breathing, the 17-70mm F2.8 empowers users' expression of their creative intentions to the fullest degree. 6. Close focusing MOD is just 7.5” at wide-angle end 7. A highly portable compact design 8.
