Expanded VC Schematic Diagram
The SP 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD employs Tamron's esteemed image stabilization mechanism-VC (Vibration Compensation) seen in both the AF18-270mm Di II VC (Model B003) and SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II VC (Model B005). With VC, the photographer has the freedom to shoot at a shutter speed an extra four stops slower without having to worry about blurring. This makes capturing hand-held, evening, night, and interior shots much easier.

Full-frame sensor for ultimate versatility.
The SP 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di VC USD is one of Tamron's Di (Digitally Integrated) designs. The Di Series is the mark of Tamron's lenses that are versatile enough to use on digital APS-C, full-frame and 35mm SLR cameras.


Full time manual focus makes fine tuning easy.
All Tamron lenses have high autofocus precision and are designed to capture subjects easily in almost any situation, yet sometimes a photographer wants to fine tune and make adjustments on the fly. The integration of full time manual focus offers just that: instead of fumbling with switches, photographers can switch from autofocus to manual focus by simply adjusting the focus ring. This feature helps the lens produce impressive results even in telephoto situations where the depth of field is narrow.


Cleaner, crisper images without flare or ghosting.
The new BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coatings reduce the lens reflection and dispersion that cause ghosting and flare. The coatings enhance light transmission in both the short and long wavelength ranges, ensuring excellent performance in all photographic conditions. Additionally, internal surface coatings are applied to cemented surfaces of all lens elements to deliver sharp, high-contrast images and flawless color reproduction.
