Manufacturer description: This second generation ‘G2’ version of Tamron’s SP 150-600mm F5-6.3 Di VC USD was developed to provide superior optical performance with today’s high-resolution DSLRs and to add improvements to several features including speed and accuracy of AF and VC (Vibration Compensation).

Also, several new features have been added: FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism, Fluorine Coating and optional teleconverters. The new lens delivers outstanding performance and a luxurious, upscale appearance, including a metal lens barrel.

The VC (Vibration Compensation) effectiveness is equivalent to 4.5 stops, based on image stabilization performance levels established by CIPA (Camera and Imaging Products Association) when using in VC MODE 3. SP 150-600mm G2 has three types of VC modes.

The standard mode strikes a great balance between the stability of the viewfinder image and the stabilization effects.

Exclusively used for panning.

Prioritizes the stabilization of the captured images and forgoes the stabilization of the viewfinder image.
