Tamron 50-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD (Model A069)

Tamron launched the 50-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD (Model A069), a 6x telephoto zoom lens, starting at 50mm on the wide end for added versatility, for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras on June 27, 2024, at $799 USD / $1,099 CAD. The 50-300mm F4.5-6.3 VC features an extremely compact size with a length of just 5.9” (150mm) and a class-leading light weight of 23.5 oz (665g). In addition, the arrangement of special lens elements effectively controls aberrations and produces high image quality throughout the entire 50-300mm zoom range. The lens is equipped with the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism that delivers quietness and agile autofocus performance, while the VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization mechanism provides powerful support for every aspect of shooting. At the 50mm wide end, the lens attains a MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 8.7” (0.22m) for a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2. The 67mm filter size is common to many TAMRON lenses for mirrorless cameras for greater enjoyment and convenience when carrying multiple lenses — or even just one during everyday excursions. The 50-300mm F4.5-6.3 VC is packed with features such as Moisture-Resistant Construction, Fluorine Coating, and the connector port for the dedicated TAMRON Lens Utility software developed in-house by TAMRON.
