Tamron 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III
CSC cameras promise a lighter and more portable photographic experience. In line with this approach, Tamron has created a lightweight and compact MFT (Micro Four Thirds) compatible lens. Delivering an impressive (equivalent) focal length range of 28-300mm, the lens weighs a mere 285g (10.1 oz) with a 80.4mm (3.16 inches) in length (unextended). Constructed of 17 elements in 13 groups, the lens has an impressive close focusing distance of 0.5 metres (1.64 feet) and contains AD (Anomalous Dispersion) glass as well as hybrid aspherical and LD (low dispersion) elements. An IF (internal focusing) system means the lens does not extend during focusing. The lens comes in both black and silver models to match the user’s camera body.
