Flagship ultra-wide-angle zoom is reborn Tamron SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2

Super high-quality high-speed ultra-wide-angle zoom lens The Model A041 is an F/2.8 ultra-wide-angle lens with a focal length starting at 15mm that offers high resolution even in the peripheral area of the image. By incorporating an XGM (eXpanded Glass Molded Aspherical) lens element and multiple LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements to curtail distortion and lateral chromatic aberrations, Tamron has achieved a degree of resolution throughout the range that is just as good as a fixed focal length lens.

Newly developed AX Coating The AX (Anti-reflection eXpand) Coating, especially effective for wide-angle lenses that tend to let in harmful light from peripheral areas, was developed to control rays that affect image quality. It is a revolutionary new proprietary coating developed in-house by Tamron using specialized deposition technology. The new coating keeps the reflection factor for peripheral areas at the same high level as that for the center area, not only overcoming standard curvature issues, but even overcoming the problems of conventionally produced convex surface with large curvatures for which uniform deposition has always proved difficult to achieve. Furthermore, the Model A041, along with eBand (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating utilizing nanotechnology, and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating, makes effective use of three different types of coatings, thereby enabling unsurpassed curtailment of ghosting and flare and consequently enabling superlative, exceptionally clear image quality edge to edge.

High-speed, high-precision AF Superb AF speed and precision is delivered by equipping the lens with a Dual MPU (Micro-Processing Unit) system and employing an enhanced AF control algorithm to improve performance. The AF drive uses proprietary Tamron technology, USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), enabling high torque, high response, and silent operation. And because it comes with a Full-time Manual Focus override system, manual focus adjustments can be made on the fly.

VC promises sharp images for all varieties of shooting Tamron released the first high-speed F/2.8 ultra-wide-angle zoom lens in the world equipped with a VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism, the original Model A012. The new 15-30mm G2 Model A041 has been further improved with a newly developed VC mechanism that surpasses former versions and reaches 4.5 stops*, according to CIPA standards. This makes it possible to shoot sharp photos over a wide range of photographic scenes, including indoor and outdoor shots as well as handheld shots at stopped-down aperture settings for landscape photography. * CIPA Standard Compliant. For Canon: EOS-5D MKIII is used. For Nikon: D810 is used.

Rear filter holder The Canon (EF-mount) version of the new 15-30mm G2 VC lens comes with a rear filter holder built in as a standard feature that lets you insert gelatin and other sheet filters into the rear side of the lens. This makes photography using filters much easier and simpler.

Vastly improved highly durable Fluorine Coating Abrasion resistance capability has been vastly improved on the new 15-30mm G2. The front surface of the lens element is coated with a Fluorine Coating based on a newly developed fluorine compound with high water- and oil-repellent properties. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture, and fingerprints, and enabling your important lenses to be continually protected on a long-term basis.

The new design provides greater operability and design consistency With the new SP design applied, the 15-30mm G2 shares the same feel of high quality and operability as the other two models in this series, SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A032) and SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A025). Tamron has merged beautiful craftsmanship with intuitive design in this new high-speed ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. Even details like the shape of the switch box, distance-scale window, and the precision and stability of the metallic mount reveal a commitment to functionality, as well as design. The result is a next-generation lens that’s easy to use, yet loaded with cutting-edge technology.

Compatible with TAMRON TAP-in ConsoleTM The new 15-30mm G2, model A041 is compatible with the TAMRON TAP-in Console, in order to provide a USB connection to a personal computer to easily update the lens’s firmware as well as to make fine adjustments to the focus position and VC control.

Moisture-Resistant Construction Seals are located at the lens mount area and other critical locations to prevent infiltration of moisture and/or rain to provide Moisture-Resistant Construction. This feature affords an additional layer of protection when shooting outdoors under adverse weather conditions. MTF/ Optical Construction
