Excellent AF and reliable VC (Vibration Compensation) performance

The A034 lens includes Tamron’s Dual MPU system: a dedicated MPU (micro-processing unit) for vibration compensation and another for lens system control, including AF. Each MPU has a DSP (Digital Signal Processing) block for high signal processing that balances reliable vibration compensation with exceptional AF performance. Tamron’s proprietary VC image stabilization features 4-stops**. The USD (Ultrasonic Silent Dive) ring-type motor provides excellent response and control for advanced high-speed focusing. Additionally, a full-time manual focus override lets you make fine manual adjustments without having to switch focus modes.

** CIPA Standard Compliant. For Canon: EOS-5D MKIII is used; for Nikon: D810 is used.

Internal zoom combines reliability with stability

An internal zoom mechanism maintains your center of gravity while shooting for more stable performance. Combined with Moisture-Resistant Construction, the internal zoom creates a more comfortable all-around shooting experience. Also, since the total length of the barrel never changes while zooming, you can easily shoot through obstructions such as a wire fence at a zoo.
