manufacturer description

Lightweight and Compact Ultra Telephoto Zoom Lens Covering Up to 500mm
This is a new zoom lens from Tamron that lets you bring your far away subjects up close while compressing the distance between the main subject and the background for professional-looking results. Even while covering up to a 500mm that enables you to take ultra telephoto shots of subjects further than the eye can see, its design is extremely lightweight and compact. When mounted on an APS-C size digital SLR camera, it provides a focal length equivalent to a 760mm for super ultra telephoto imaging.

Minimum Object Distance of 2.5m (8.2 ft.) throughout the Range
Tamron's new 200-500mm enables you to get as close as 2.5m (8.2ft.) from your main subject at any focal length and provides a useful maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.0 at the 500mm end, allowing you to take dynamic and impressive pictures of small subjects.

The Detachable Filter Effect Control
The Filter Effect Control is designed to rotate the filter to the desired position with the hood attached, enabling you to simultaneously perform minute adjustments to PL filter compensation. You can confirm the Polarizing effect through the viewfinder, all while using the hood to prevent harmful light from entering the lens.

Lightweight Design
This powerful ultra telephoto zoom lens weighs a mere 1237 grams (43.6 oz.)* through the use of engineering plastic materials for parts that compose the main barrel that provide strength sufficient for industrial applications, yet offer dimensional stability. The tripod mount, detachable in one touch, is made of magnesium alloy that reconcile light-weight and high rigidity, resulting in enhanced balance and ease of use in hand-held shooting.

New Addition to the Di-series
The lens features Tamron's "Di" (Digitally Integrated Design) optical system to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras as well as film cameras. When mounted on an APSC size digital SLR camera, it provides a focal length coverage
equivalent to a 310-760mm, covering the ultra telephoto zoom range
