The new Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VX VXD is a super-telephoto zoom lens designed for Sony E-mount full-frame cameras. Similar to the company’s popular DSLR 150-600mm zoom lens, this 150-500mm zoom is designed to give incredible telephoto reach while remaining relatively lightweight and portable. A 75° turn of the zoom ring takes you all the way from 150mm to 500mm for a fast zooming experience. A zoom lock keeps the lens from extending when being carried. An optionally attached lens foot adds 0.3 lb to the 3.8 lb weight of the lens. As you’d expect, the lens is weatherproof, packs 25 glass elements into 16 groups, features the latest coatings from Tamron, and features a 7-bladed rounded aperture diaphragm.
