Tamron announced its first lens for SONY NEX mirror-less cameras.
The ‘Tamron 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 Di III VC’ made under the license agreement with Sony, meets E-mount specs. As the NEX cameras use APS-C sized sensors, the 18-200mm zoom lens becomes equivalent to 27-300mm in 35mm format.
The lens comes in a silver or black metallic finish. Tamron’s original VC mechanical image stabilisation system supports the lens. The 17-in13 zoom lens focusses down to a minimum distance of 0.5m to give a 1:3.7 magnification at the telephoto end. The barrel diameter is 68mm; and length 96.7mm.
