  • Moisture-Resistant Construction
  • Filter Diameter: 82mm
  • For Sony E-mount Full-Frame Mirrorless Cameras
  • An astonishingly compact ultra-telephoto zoom lens with image stabilization specifically designed for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras:
  • The 150-500mm F5-6.7 achieves a 500mm focal length while retaining a compact size, with a length of just 209.6 mm (8.3 in) and a maximum diameter of 93 mm, enabling comfortable handheld shooting. The design places major emphasis on image quality. The optical construction features 25 elements in 16 groups and utilizes special lens elements and hybrid aspherical lens elements to control various potential aberrations such as chromatic aberrations. The 150-500mm F5-6.7 zoom is also equipped with a high-speed, high-precision linear motor focus mechanism VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) and VC (Vibration Compensation), ensuring that no photogenic moment is ever missed. Additionally, the lens has a MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.6 m (23.6 in) at the 150mm end and remarkable overall usability. The Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount has strap attachment holes and there are various features to support outdoor shooting, including Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating. The 150-500mm F5-6.7 is a highly versatile lens that lets you capture a wide array of subjects ranging from landscapes and birds to sports and wildlife photography. You will be amazed when you experience the powerful and unique world of ultra-telephoto lenses for yourself.
  • Enjoy comfortable handheld shooting with a compact full-featured, full-frame 500mm lens:
  • Considering its pairing with mirrorless cameras, TAMRON pursued a compact size that allows handheld shooting while developing the 150-500mm F5-6.7. With a length of 209.6 mm (8.3 in) and maximum diameter of 93 mm, the 150-500mm F5-6.7 is astonishingly compact for a 500mm-class ultra-telephoto zoom lens built for use on full-frame mirrorless cameras. Even when extended to the 500mm telephoto end, the lens has a suppressed length of around 283 mm (11.1 in). Another distinctive feature is that the arc of rotation of the zoom ring is small - only 75 degrees - which enables swift adjustment to the desired focal length with minimal movement.
  • Uncompromising high image quality throughout the entire zoom range:
  • In addition to covering a broad range of focal lengths, the 150-500mm F5-6.7 zoom has high resolving power with excellent image-rendering performance across the entire zoom range. The optical construction features 25 elements in 16 groups. The effective placement of special lens elements - including XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion), LD (Low Dispersion) and hybrid aspherical lens elements - enables the 150-500mm F5-6.7 to produce clear images while controlling chromatic aberrations. BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) Coating is used to suppress ghosting and flare, which commonly occur under backlit conditions. These features allow the lens to produce finely detailed images of a wide variety of subjects including wild animals, birds, nature and sports, while producing soft and beautiful bokeh effects.
  • High-speed, high-precision AF means you'll never miss a photo opportunity:
  • The 150-500mm F5-6.7 zoom's AF drive system is equipped with the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism. VXD delivers extreme high-speed and high-precision movement and ensures exceptionally responsive performance. Even when shooting at the ultra-telephoto end with a focal length of 500mm, the 150-500mm F5-6.7 enables comfortable, stress-free focusing at all shooting distances from near to far. Focus tracking performance is also very high, facilitating shooting of fast-moving subjects, such as when photographing wild birds, sports, vehicles and wildlife in general. The linear motor also suppresses drive noise and vibrations during focusing, making it ideal for shooting both still photos and video in environments that demand quietness.
  • VC image stabilization facilitates shooting handheld at the 500mm ultra-telephoto position:
  • When shooting in the ultra-telephoto range, even the smallest vibrations can lead to loss of image clarity. The 150-500mm F5-6.7 is equipped with VC (Vibration Compensation) functionality to support sharp images despite unavoidable camera shake. VC delivers powerful support for handheld shooting of scenes with low light levels, such as evening scenes and indoor shots, without the use of a tripod. The lens also features a VC mode selection switch with three modes including a dedicated panning mode (Mode 1: Standard, Mode 2: Exclusively for Panning, and Mode 3: Framing priority), thereby enabling selection of the ideal VC mode to match shooting conditions and preferences.
  • MOD of 0.6 m (23.6 in) when shooting at the 150mm setting:
  • The 150-500mm F5-6.7 zoom lets users freely enjoy telephoto macro shooting of subjects at closeup distances. The lens has an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.6 m (23.6 in) at the 150mm wide-angle end, and 1.8 m (70.9 in) at the 500mm telephoto end. More remarkably, the maximum magnification ratio at the 150mm end is 1:3.1, offering excellent close-up shooting capabilities for an ultra-telephoto zoom lens. The versatile performance of the 150-500mm F5-6.7 enables shooting of a diverse range of scenes from plants and insects to closeup tabletop photos. It also allows users to shoot very dramatic images because it gives the illusion that the distance between objects is less than in real life. Secondarily, it's also possible to get interesting head-and-shoulder portraits because of this compression effect.
  • An ultra-telephoto zoom lens with extreme usability for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless:
  • In the development and design of the 150-500mm F5-6.7 zoom, TAMRON emphasized usability so that users can fully immerse themselves in the world of ultra-telephoto zoom lenses without minor annoyances.
  • Len hood HA057: Lens hood designed with rubberized front
  • The end of the included lens hood is protected with flexible, shock-absorbing front rim to prevent cracks and damage.
  • Fast, smooth zooming operation with minimal movement
  • The arc of rotation of the zoom ring is only 75 degrees to enable swift adjustment to the desired focal length with minimal movement.
  • FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism
  • The FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism quickly locks or unlocks the zoom at any position simply by sliding the zoom ring. Photographers can shoot at any angle without the lens extending unintentionally.
  • New switch design for improved operability
  • Modifications to the switch designs provide smoother, more comfortable operation overall and more intuitive control.
  • Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount with strap attachment holes included
  • Strap attachment holes are conveniently located in the Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount, and the overall balance with the strap attached, with regard to centre of gravity, is excellent.
  • Built with Mirrorless in Mind:
  • TAMRON's new 150-500mm F5-6.7 is compatible with many of the advanced features that are specific to mirrorless cameras. These include:
  • Fast Hybrid AF
  • Eye AF
  • Direct Manual Focus (DMF)
  • In-camera lens correction (shading, chromatic aberration, distortion)
  • Camera-based lens unit firmware updates
  • * Features vary by camera. Please consult your camera's instruction manual for details.
  • * As of March, 2021
  • Additional Features:
  • Circular aperture to produce a smooth-edged bokeh
  • A 7-blade diaphragm is configured to retain a smooth, circular-shaped aperture opening even when stopped down by two stops from the wide-open aperture. This produces a smooth-edged bokeh in background highlights.
  • Moisture-Resistant Construction protects your lens
  • For greater protection when shooting outdoors, leak-resistant seals throughout the lens barrel help protect your equipment.
  • BBAR-G2 Coating delivers stunning clarity and contrast
  • TAMRON has long been an innovator of coating technologies that prevent ghosting and flare. Second-generation BBAR-G2 Coating is a groundbreaking advancement that provides vastly improved performance compared to the original BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating. The coating corrects for ghosting and flare to an unprecedented extent and renders fine subject detail with true clarity and stunning contrast even under backlit conditions
  • Fluorine Coating for protection and safe cleaning
  • The front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water- and oil-repellant. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture, and fingerprints.
