Tamron 16-300 f/3.5-6.3 DI II VC PZD Macro (Model B016)
The latest All-in-One zoom lens by Tamron designed for APS-C sensor DSLRs, it provides a whooping 18.8X times optical zoom ratio. It covers from wide angle in 16mm focal length up to the telephoto range of 300mm. It’s an ideal walking and all-around lense that can capture widely a landscape scenery and up to getting a close-up of a distance object with its super-telephoto capability. Although packed with the zoom range, it is still light weight at 540 grams.
The lens has also macro capability with the ratio of 1:2.9 magnification. It has VC (Vibration Control) that allows you to shoot on slower speeds by a few stops by stabilizing the vibrations caused by handheld shooting at slow speeds. The PZD makes the focusing faster and more silent.
The lens is priced at Php 32,750 or Php 5,125 for 6 months installment with 0% interest with credit card purchases. The lens comes with 3 years warranty when purchased in the Philippines. The new lens is now available at your favorite photography stores.
